Beautiful sunset view with great cocktails followed by good meal, great for couples/friends/family. Even better if they've got their live music going

Our first night in Road Town (waiting to charter the next morning) we took a cab up over the mountain to enjoy the sunset and a cocktail. Or two. We did not have a reservation so just sat at the bar overlooking Jost Van Dyke to the west. Beautiful sunset with a cold Carib and listening to Rueben Chinnery play... More

Made a reservation (this is key if you want a nice spot for the sunset) got sat down right away and ordered a variety of cocktails which were all strong and delicious! The vegan pasta dish was amazing! Highly recommend this place!

Just spent 2 weeks in BVI on Tortola, Virgin Gorda and a sailing charter. We ate at a lot of restaurants and had some very good food. At the end this was our favorite place. Bananakeet on Tortola. What an amazing dinner with a view. We arrived early and even without reservations, we were able to get a beautiful table... More

I've gone to Tortola many times, and each time I've made time for the BananaKeet. The food is crazy good, and everyone wants to come here. The view is fab and the servers are friendly. The worst thing about this place is the wait for food. I sat there for at least an hour for food the first time, but... More

We had dinner here three times during our recent trip to the BVI. The four of us collectively tried the majority of the menu and enjoyed everything we ordered. And the claim of the best sunset is well founded, with the sun dropping behind Jost Van Dyke in dazzling fashion.
