We arrived at Big Banana as a party of 7 ... what a mistake! All our orders - including drinks - were written down by a female staff member, and she still managed to get them horribly wrong. One of the pizza's arrived with the wrong ingredients, and the other one had the correct toppings but was the wrong size... More

Dear Chris, Big Banana routinely handles large groups and have usually received huge kudos for successfully providing a great experience. We are unsure as to why you have had so many errors within one dining event. Please come back so that we can make it up to you.... First drink on us!!! More

I and my partners first day on the island was a drive to Big Banana Restaurant. Their food was very tasty and the mango smoothie was out of this world.

Went with 2 teenage boys who are always hungry, before the carnival opening procession began. They ordered Kalamari and chicken strips and pizza to follow. They wanted to order the medium pizza but were persuaded to order the small by our lovely, friendly waitress. The mountain of kalamari and chicken was devoured and when the pizzas arrived, they realised they... More

When I lived in Antigua, now over 22 years ago, this was the best pizza on the island and some of the best anywhere. I was very pleased during a recent trip to see that nothing has changed. In fact the pizza was maybe better than I remembered. My daughter and I ordered a small vegetarian pizza to share. The... More

We love the BIg Banana in St.John,s . When we are on a visit into town it's our first choice normally , because it's inexpensive, the staff are lovely(especially Barbara) and you get good Wifi and its central for parking etc...plus the pizza is very good! We take our friends there when they visit and everyone loves it too.

Pizza slices are surprisingly as large as many personal size pizzas we've seen here at home!!. Many choices of toppings. Drinks were great and reasonable. We looked around us and there were local family graduation celebrations, hanging out.

The Big Banana was recommended to us by our apartment caretakers! What a great place to eat. The service was good and for the most part quick. We sat outside but with some cover near a huge tree that the restaurant was built around. It was reasonable and delicious. We all ordered virgin crushes and they were yummy! Great way... More
