Juanita Bananas is one of our favorite places in Culebra!
It's a beautiful place located atop a hill with fabulous views of the surrounding area. There is a large deck with a dozen or so tables well spaced out so you're not eating on top of each other and you can enjoy a romantic dinner under the stars. There is an indoor space as well, but we never sit there.
The menu is filed with fresh local ingredients - they grow a lot of their own produce and herbs. We especially loved that. Living in NYC, a lot of our favorite places build their menus around the local farmers harvest.
The last time we went our waitress couldn't have been nicer (I forget her name). She was warm and friendly and did a fabulous job answering questions and recommending things from appetizers to wine choices. The menu seems to always change based on what is available on the small island.
Jennifer, the chef, came around about mid-way through the meal to check on everyone. It was clear that she took real pride in her work.
It is one of the more expensive places to eat, but not exorbitantly. We had appetizers, entrees, a bottle of wine and desserts and it all came to just over $100 (maybe $120 with tip..).
I can't wait to get back there.
