Have had the pleasure of eating in many restaurants on this island and Les Bananiers just jumped to the font of the line as our favorite. No, it does not have the ambiance of Le Tamarind, or the service and detail of Isola, but the place is quite welcoming, with great breezes and most importantly, the food is amazing!!! Had... More

Bananiers is in the top three pizza restaurants on the island, and if you are staying near Columbier, it's a solid first. Adjacent to Petit Columbe bakery with no signage on the road, it is a bit hard to detect its location. Amazing prices on food and wine, this has to be the best value restaurant on St. Barth.

Our first night in St. Barts we went to Maya's which has this wonderful reputation (Still scratching my head on why). Thinking all was lost, we found this restaurant not far from where we are staying in Columbier and redemption!! Half the price of Maya's, and wonderful flavorful food. The restaurant has a warm casual atmosphere with many locals eating... More

This is not actually in Gustavia and is actuall by La Petit Columbe. I have been coming here for three years and have never had a bad meal whether for lunch or for dinner. While there are more upscale places to eat on the island, this has become old faithful! The staff is always friendly and if you ask they... More

We had eaten lunch here on many occasions but never dinner. We are so happy we went for dinner. The food and service were wonderful and by St Barts standards was reasonable. My wife had duck breasts and I had sweet breads with morels. She had a glass of champagne and we split a bottle of wine. We also shared... More

An incredible menu which made it difficult to choose. We had the local fish special and petite lobsters. Delicious! The atmosphere is more laid back than some of other restuarants - casual and it seemed as though the local folks enjoyed this as well. One of my favorites.

Actually this restaurant is not in Gustavia but next to the La Petite Columbe bakery (previously reviewed and excellent) in Columbier. The food was a mix of local fish dishes, pizza, beef options and duck. I ordered the duck and was disappointed, my wife ordered the pizza and was also disappointed. Quite possibly we just ordered the wrong things and... More

We go to the bakery next door when we are in St. Barths. We never really noticed this restaurant but thought we would give it a try. It is much larger inside, than it appears outside and very nice. They do a big business in pizza and I can see why, the pizzas are large and look great. But, we... More

We discovered Les Bananiers restaurant thanks to our St Barth's friends who asked us to meet them there for lunch after we had explored the Flamands Beach nearby. It was a great choice, with delicious food and panoramic ocean views on the distance. I don't recall my friend's menu choices but I will never forget the pizza I had: the... More
