“Nothing here but the view.”
Reviewed February 3, 2012

Everyone is sold on a fantastic view. Just don't expect much else. The attitude of the wait staff is horrible. My wife and were seated at a table for three when we arrived. Mid-way through our meal we were told to move to a different table as there was a party of three waiting to be seated. The food and drinks are over-priced. $13 for a cheap glass of champagne, everywhere else on Tortola is $5-7. Myett's, Quito's, or Sailor's Rest are all best. All of these places have wonderful, warm, and welcoming staff and owners!

“Still the best food and view in Tortola”
Reviewed February 2, 2012

We have visited the Banakeet regularly over the years and the quality is consistently high. Chris and crew are welcoming and the food is delicious: fresh and thoughtfully prepared.
The view, 400 feet above the water is fantastic. The sunset over the Drake channel is unparalleled, so it is OK to arrive early for a drink (we do!).
The restaurant is casually elegant and comfortable with covered and open outdoor seating.
There are menu items to suit all tastes. I personally enjoy the sushi specials (particularly the Ahi tuna). I love the Asian calamari salad.
It is a high value dining experience with reasonable prices; absolutely worth the drive up Windy Hill

“Beautiful sunset and view”
Reviewed February 1, 2012

Dined at BananaKeet for dinner with my husband and two friends. We went to enjoy the sunset and were not disappointed. The view was fantastic. The food was quite good, especially the coconut shrimp. Also, there was live music the night we were there which we really enjoyed. We would return on our next visit to Tortola.
