Located up in the rain forest halfway up Mt. Nevis. The palms, flowers and views are great and excellent sunset location. A top deck for viewing and cocktails. The dining area is comfortable relaxing, staff is attentive and friendly. The food is splendid, especially for a foodie. Had a Moroccan lamb shank with veg and mash. Mmmm. Spouse had some... More

It's funky and fun; it's generally full; the food is good and the experience memorable. Lovely tables on the terrace and excellent service. Decent choice of wines; interesting art to look at and a great bar.

The food, location, the atmosphere all have a Nevisian flair to it. The drive up to the restaurant and the walk up the lighted walkway begins the culinary journey of a tropica inspired menu. There is an opportunity to have drinks first and take in the beautiful setting and the sounds of the tropical forest setting. The food was very... More

Great rum drinks and great food in a beautiful outdoor restaurant setting--what else do you want?! Ok an Olde Rum tasting menu with a flight of rums--what else do you want?! Ok, a roof top view of the ocean from the middle of tree tops--what else do you want? Ok, the surprise of the night--Thai curries that are fantastic! Do... More

On a previous visit we went to Bananas for dinner. This time we went for lunch. The restaurant is located up the mountain and you can see the ocean far below. We each had a rum punch and a lobster sandwich which were excellent. The gift shop has many beautiful items.

Pretty sure the title says it all. I had high expectations after visiting The Gin Trap, and was not let down. Nevis definitely has some excellent restaurants. The service at Bananas Bistro was very accommodating, walking us to our car with an umbrella due to rain.

We ate here twice. There is a lovely terrace overlooking beautiful gardens, which is a great place to watch the sunset with a cocktail or two! Food was excellent. The lobster linguine was fab as was the fish if the day. Service great too. . Small boutique on site with pretty sandals, bags and beach cover ups.

The Bananas Bistro is hidden away in the hills above Charlestown. But it is well worth finding. The house is a lovely wooden colonial house with a large balcony and hibiscus and alamander flowers providing shade. Humming birds love the place as much as I did and were drinking nectar from the flowers by my side, as I was drinking... 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.
