Description: 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.

“Great food, beautiful view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2014

Excellent food and service at a beautiful setting. Reservations during high season is a must. The restaurant also has an art gallery and many of the paintings can be seen at the restaurant. The bar area is charming with couches and many colourful paintings and pillows. A must when in Nevis.

“Nice deck for sunsets”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014

Pick a clear night to see a great sunset from way up on the mountain. You are greeted at the walkway and led to the deck for drinks then dinner. Loved the Coconut Cake!!!!!

“Great food in a gorgeous setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2014

I am hard to please and a vegetarian, but Bananas is really excellent. I had black bean cakes and a fancy salad; service was great. Bananas is a magical place surrounded by masses of tropical flowers, and as it gets dark you can hear the tree frogs singing. A tropical paradise.

“Have dinner include sunset”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2014 via mobile

Beautiful setting! Hard to find but when you arrive it is well worth the search! O to the second level for cocktails and just enjoy the sunset breathing in the tranquility. I had two appetizers for dinner and it was great by here were for of us and we each enjoyed the meal and look forward to returning

“Best meal of the holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2014

Just exceptional.

Magical setting, like a fairy treehouse hidden away up in the rainforest (when you find it!!! get directions!) Kids would love exploring. Make sure you get there in time for sundowners from the roof terrace.

Charming, professional service and brilliant food, especially the Nevisian tasting platter (conch gratin, goat water, tania fritters with hot sauce, plantain chips with black bean dip and jonny cakes with saltfish).

If and when we go back to Nevis - please God! - we'll go to Bananas for all our 'posh' meals. Outshone even the Montpelier.
