We enjoyed a delightful dinner with great service overlooking the Caribbean Sea (anything further east on the Malecon, that does not offer multi-stories, will have partially-/fully-obstructed views of the water) on a beautiful, breezy evening. My friend and I shared the guacamole appetizer from the specials menu. It was pleasant enough, but it was a bit runnier than we're used... More

Service was great. Food was sub par causing lots of gastrointestinal issues. Drinks were weak. The only redeemable quality was the stray dog hanging out in the restaurant and the service.

This place is awesome! Great food and great atmosphere. Traditional caribbean food with their own unique flare. I had the cuban sandwich and it was amazing. I would go all the way to Vieques just for this sandwich!

We had most of our meals at this place. Since it was the off-season we had the whole place to ourselves. The menu was extensive with daily specials on the board. Prices a bit on the high side but the quality of the food and service made up for it. Good place to grab a drink and watch the sun... More

We took a cruise out of san juan and decided to spend the night before in vieques to do the bio bay. After searching for places to stay I came across bananas guest house and decided we could get a taxi from the airport to bananas and we could stay there and eat there as well to reduce extra taxi...

Perfect island flavor. Not a 5-star hotel, but I'm looking forward to staying here again! And the restaurant is incredible. Budget a little extra for food, and eat every meal here you can!

Bananas is a beach bar where you can not expect 5*high end food, but very good food. We ended up going here a lot during our visit.Not just for the food, the drinks were excellent and the staff incredible. The owner is caring, super nice and the waitress just so helpful. I can highly recommend this place

Thank Alex90028
