With all the talk about Bananas being the best restaurant on the island, combined with the difficulty of getting there, we were expecting to be wowed. Instead, there were a number of things that caused us to rate it low. To begin, they should make it known that they sell cigars and allow them to be smoked anywhere in the restaurant. Had we known that we never would have gone there. Soon after we had ordered, 2 men lit up cigars. They were part of a group of 8 very loud people. While we understood the restaurant had no control over the noise level it made for an unpleasant evening.
Although lobster is on the menu, they only had one order left. Midway through our meal there was a torrential downpour. The tables are on a porch of a house, wide open and with no rain protection. I got soaked; we scurried to move our table and chairs, as did other diners. No one from the restaurant offered help.
As the plates were cleared by the hostess she asked if everything was alright. I told her I was very wet from the rain. Her first comment was that the rain typically comes in on the other side of the porch. This being said in sight of a number of tables having been moved. She did apologize (although it didn't seem genuine), and offered to pay for our drinks.
As for the food, it was good but did not seem worth the price. Service was not consistent throughout the meal.
