Great curry mahi and awesome atmosphere! Probably the most exciting atmosphere of all the restaurants on Nevis. Great drink menu too!

We decided to try this place after reading the reviews and we weren't disappointed. This place was very good. I definitely suggest going later at night, as the walk up to the restaurant is very pretty. Our taxi driver suggested we get the Goat Water, after traveling the Caribbean every year, this was probably the best local dish I have... More

Magical is an over used adjective, but in relation to Bananas it is particularly apposite. We arrived for dinner just after sunset and the path leading up to the restaurant was enchanting. Seating on the terrace taking delicious cocktails was the most perfect start. The food based on Thai flavours and recipes was just simply wonderful, fish or fowl a... More

We are on our Honeymoon in St Kitts and Nevis and just returned from Banana's after having perhaps the best dinner so far on this trip. The ambiance is very romantic, the service is outstanding and the food is to die for. I had the beef tenderloin in mushroom sauce and my wife had the skirt steak in green sauce,... More

My husband and I headed to Bananas for my 40th birthday dinner. Everything about this place is perfect - the boutique, the adorable dog that greets you and the amazing deck for sunset watching. The Bertini signature drink was out of this world. Our food was absolutely delicious! (Don't miss the lobster dip or coconut cake!) The atmosphere is so... More

Great location, exceptional food options cooked to perfection. You must stop here when visiting Nevis! I did not give a full 5 points because the lady who welcomed us and attend the shop could be have better tact when dealing with the customers, she came off a bit to strong and pushy. At the end of an amazing dinner and... More

A restaurant set apart on a hillside in Nevis. Architecturally perfect for the Caribbean, and set in lovely gardens, this restaurant is outstanding. A varied but not extensive menu provides well prepared and well presented food in a setting that has a truly Caribbean ambience. Not to be missed.

Bananas is well worth seeking out - service, atmosphere and food are right at the top of what Nevis has to offer. You drive up from the by-pass around Charlestown on steeper and steeper roads, past the beautiful ruins of an old sugar plantation and eventually emerge out into a road that leads to Bananas. You park up outside what... More

Be there for the sunset viewing from the top deck of the restaurant! Food was amazing and delish! Dessert was yummy! Best time to go is lunch with fewer people, almost like you have a place to yourself!. Reservations are highly recommended, especially for dinner. The house dog will be expecting a belly rub when you walk up the stone... 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.
