Excellent value and great food. Gotta try the Jugo Verdè ... Green juice..... Worth the walking to find this little spot. Couple of blocks off Benito Juarez.

Stopped in here one morning and had an excellent breakfast. Met the owners who are native Zihuat's and love sharing their food and their city knowledge. Would recommend going to Banana's

Locals eat here [saw a party of 12+], good food and service, cafe style place - walked a block to the sea wall and walked back to Casa Sandbar [GREAT place to stay] along the bay. Worth doing!

These little hole in the wall restaurants are the best places to stop for a quick meal that is good and the price is a great value. We had breakfast which was not too large nor too small.

The restaurant is very clean. Food is served in an open area. The one salsa they serve is my favorite and we always take extra with us to the condo. The husband speaks fluent English and some of the waiters as well. Everything is very clean. The food is very tasty. We love the place.

We liked this friendly fun restaurant. The food was very good but not exceptional in our minds. However we would recommend coming here.

It's so nice to come upon the Bananas home-style restaurant in the midst of the Zihuatanejo touristic experience. The meals are prepared by the family with satisfaction to the customer in mind. The Tallechea family has their own family table amongst the customers, which makes you feel like you are a part of the scene. The prices are very reasonable,... More

While visiting Zihua, I had breakfast at Bananas several times. Mostly I enjoyed the Chorizo omelette with veggies and beans and a fruit smoothie on the side. The price was very low for the amount of quality food you're served. I'll return for sure!

Thank Christopher B
