I've been coming to Banana beach everyday while I'm Santa Teresa and I would like to recommend a specific fruit shake from the Menu: High Tide. Amazing combination of coconut, banana and cacao. They also had and amazing watermelon and passion fruit shake. Best combination must try.
The place itself is very laid-back and has Hammocks all over the place, cute bar , perfect place to chill for sunset or in between surfing. I would like to mention the name of very friendly and helpful waitress her name is Mechi. She has great vibe and good people skills. She was very patient and informative.

We had an amazing time here. The drinks weren't watered down the staff was attentive and the super nachos are to die for. It has a great ambiance with live music and a beach bonfire to top off the evening. We will definitely come again !

So delicious! The view is gorgeous. The seats are comfy, with crabs running at your feet. The service is great, they had live music & a fire show when we were there. The fish tacos were DELICIOUS and refreshing!

Food and drinks are good (a bit expensive but good). But as other posters have mentioned, they seem to think they're better than they really are. It's not very welcoming to go into a restaurant and have a server look at you like you're trash cause you're not "cool" or "hip". This could be a fabulous little place, but the snotty attitudes of a couple of the waitresses would keep me from going back.
