A group of 5 couples went here for a sunset dinner. We had reservations at 5:30. This allowed us to enjoy the sunset while sipping our cocktails and getting some great pictures. The wait staff (Ninja) and the food were both really good. My only complaint was the drinks were on the watered down side. I highly recommend this place... More

What a delightful first night for us in Tortola! Mr. Chinery (sp?) produced some amazing music and the great food made for a perfect evening.

Aside from the most spectacular view we've ever seen, the food was really good. And the service. A must do on this beautiful island. This pic does not do it justice.

I tried Chef Spice's mango banana chutney jerk pork loin and found this creation impressive and enjoyable. It was a satisfying fusion between Asian and Indian ingredients.

It was my birthday evening and wanted to have a good meal with my family. Visited Bananakeet and had an amazing meal. From time my daughter/lady and myself walked in we was greeted with open arms. Basically immediately felt like home. Our waitress Kimberley if I'm not mistaken was amazing. Didn't see the sunset due to overcast of weather conditions... More

Not a four star gourmet meal if judged by the food alone, but remarkably inventive and well done, and with a spectacular view, A helpful and unobtrusive staff lets one enjoy the view to heart's content. Not perhaps the meal the would beat Paris, but an experience that ends in the top ten of a well-travelled life.

If you are on the west end of Tortola, you need to visit this restaurant for the sunset view. The food was very good and the views were great! Free welcome shot:)

I don't think there is a place on the island to see the sun set into the ocean. No green flash here. The view and the atmosphere are fantastic. They don't open until 4 and only serve appetizers until 6. Free mini shops at sunset. The drinks and appetizers were good but not cheap. that's OK we're on vacation and... More

BananaKeet has an incredible sunset view, but that's about all. The food is average at best (except for the ahi tuna appetizer which was a special treat), the prices are high considering the low quality and lack of ambiance, and the staff is rude and unhelpful. With other great restaurants right down the road, don't waste your time or money... More
