“Caribbean island feel in Florida...check!”
Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

Food is delicious and the view is spectacular. Grab a chair in the dock area for some great scenery of the water. Stumbled upon this place from a friendly stranger in the beach...so lucky!

“Must go to!”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

We have eaten here twice and both times were great. Service is great, food was awesome, you eat among the trees but best tables for us are on the river. Both times we've been there it was very very busy so get there early if you don't want to long a wait.

“I keep wanting to love this place, but...”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

The title of this review says it all: I keep wanting to love this place, but every time I go, there's a disappointment. The decor and view are phenomenal, and well worth it if you're going with a group for non-mixed drinks. However, the mixed drinks are on the whole cloyingly sweet; it would be nice if they offered some more savory options. And the food is just adequate. Meat or fish with vegetables and mashed potatoes, chicken sandwiches, that sort of thing. And they can't even get the basics right. I ordered nachos during my most recent visit; they were cold, and the cheese was barely melted. I'm sure I'll wind up here in the future, probably with some out-of-town relatives in tow, but aside from the ambiance, this place is really nothing special.

“Great atmosphere”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Great place to eat with a waterview. Wonderful atmosphere as you sit under all the trees and tropical plants, tiki bar, tables overlooking the docks. Misters in the trees keep it cool on hot days, watch all the boats go by .

“Must see for out-of-towners”
Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

Visited Guanabana's numerous times and have never disappointed. Anytime we have guests from up north, it is slways on the to do list. The slow cooked wings are smong the best I hsve tasted. Not grilled or fried, a different taste but very good. The atmosphere is completely contrived, but the tropical surroundings are a treat for the snowbirds. Highly recommend for an afternoon bite and a cocktail....or two.
