Description: Situated on the edge of the Rainforest Bananas is casual fun dining in a magical setting. We take our food very seriously but it is good home cooking prepared by hard working local ladies, not fancy or Gourmet.. However our menu is very creative and we use only fresh ingredients and where possible free range organic produce and meats. We have Magnificent Sunset views from our Firefly lounge and a superb selection of cocktails and old rums and a small selection of cuban Cigars.

“Must Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012 via mobile

It's off the beaten track but well worth the effort. The surroundings are stunning and the food is to die for. There is a lot of variety on the menu and the food is well presented and well cooked. Most starters are under US$10 and mains $25-30, which I think is very reasonable for the quality. If you have room, have a dessert. I had a banana brûlée, also delicious.

I took a taxi but I understand the Four Seasons runs a mini bus for its guests. Just don't miss the opportunity to eat at Bananas.

“What a Treat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

Fabulous setting and ambiance. Entrance way to restaurant and gardens with cool lighting and metal art... truly magical. Bar, bartender and rum punch-awesome. Moroccan lamb shank with mashies and full rack of ribs were over the top delicious. Service was superb.

This restaurant is not to be missed whilst on the island.

“Love the place, good for a drink”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012

The style of the building is beautiful and well decorated. Like the fact there are works of art for sale and they are well displayed throughout the bar and restaurant. The drinks menu and choice of cocktails is extensive. The service is very good. We would recommenda visit at least for drinks.
