Romantic and exotic location high up in rain forest environment in the historical Hamilton Plantation. Lovely roof top bar for cocktails and sunsets and quirky, ethnic restaurant below where a good menu is delivered by excellent staff - both in the kitchen and the dining room. Worth the trek up the hill in what will be an expensive taxi ride... More

We chose this restaurant based on other tripAdvisor and yelp reviews. It's a fantastic choice! Up high in the mountains and you walk up to their roof top and get a great view of Nevis. We were dropped off by taxi and a guy greeted up and showed us our way up to the restaurant by flashlight. Once up the... More

We look for special places like the Bananas. Delightful food, great drinks, spectacular views, attentive service. We could not be happier. Bananas will be a place to come back for sure.Try the Dip Lobster. It was from the dinner menu, but Ophelia gave it to us even that we went on lunch time.

This was our first trip to Nevis, we went to Bananas for lunch. It's set up in the mountain, not far off the main road. The ambience was tranquil and serene and the food was delicious! I had the ribs which were seasoned well and tasty. My husband had the fresh fish, the sauce was excellent. My favorite was the... More

Decided for our last night we should go to Bananas. Heard so much about it. Firstly the web site doesn't do the building and location justice. Set high in the hills with stunning gardens. Sat in the verandah and hate a fantastic meal. The lobster dip and the Mahi Mahi appetizer were just the right size. The chicken, mushroom and... More

Go before sunset to the top roof for amazing sunset view and photos. Food very good - try appetizers, a must. Entries generous and tasty. Dessert a must. A family for four (two daughters ages 18 and 20) - we all thought that the food was very good - the thai chicken was exceptional. Nice atmosphere is a garden setting.... More

Not only are my family and I returning to Nevis next year, but we're already excited about eating at Bananas again. That French Onion Soup was amazing and I love all of the artwork and the little boutique!

Don't be put off by the drive to get here, it is well worth it and you won't be disappointed! Try and get a reservation and time it for the sunset whilst enjoying cocktails. Restaurant is lively with a mixture of tourists and locals and has a great atmosphere, but you are not made to feel rushed. Menu has a... More

Situated on the edge of the Rainforest Bananas is casual fun dining in a magical setting. We take our food very seriously but it is good home cooking prepared by hard working local ladies, not fancy or Gourmet.. However our menu is very creative and we use only fresh ingredients and where possible free range organic produce and meats. We have Magnificent Sunset views from our Firefly lounge and a superb selection of cocktails and old rums and a small selection of cuban Cigars.
