“Great local spot”
Reviewed August 9, 2014 via mobile

Despite my preference for less chewy cuts of beef, I wholeheartedly recommend Mi Banana. The service was impeccable, it's a full bar and the fish was outstanding.

“Best meal of our trip!”
Reviewed August 3, 2014

My family tries to avoid the tourist spots on vacation. We finally found an excellent local place at Mi Banana. The family who owns & runs the restaurant. It was fun to listen to the waiter give a run down of the menu & the families speciality dishes from Colombia. It was the 1st meal that everyone loved every bite. Our plates were full & it was the most reasonably priced. The Tres Leches cake was best we have ever had. The owner made it herself. Highly recommend.....don't let the "off the beaten path" scare you & the entire menu was translated into English so don't let the previous post about language keep you from visiting.

“Local favorite, but we weren't impressed”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

This spot is a bit hard to find and we weren't all that impressed when we got there, despite numerous glowing recommendations from the locals. If you don't speak Dutch or Spanish, there is a serious language barrier and it was apparent that our orders only partly got through. We all ordered fish, which arrived very heavily buttered. Side dishes were the best part -- yucca, plantains, etc. We unsuccessfully tried to order salads with our meals and wish that we had had better luck -- those arriving on other tables looked great. Arrive early -- it's not very big.
