My boyfriend and I stopped here for lunch just for a quick snack, and after a quick salad we decided we couldn’t get enough and came back for dinner as well. The food is absolutely outstanding. I personally had The Catch of the Day (they catch their own fish and serve it fresh) and it melted in my mouth. The dinner is very affordable and the view of the sunset setting over the ocean is incomparable to anything I have seen to date in Costa Rica. Our waitress, Sofia was an absolute sweetheart. She made sure we had everything we needed and answered any questions we had. She is also stunning . I highly recommend Banana Beach.

A picture of the ocean view at night is attached.

Go here, the sunset is amazing and ask for Nico. Chili guaro is a must. They frequently have a bonfire on the beach and a DJ and it's the best spot to go watch the sunset.

Nico was a great server, the music is always on point and I love the vibe at Banana Beach. Great happy hour and fantastic drinks, try Chili Guaro and the Coco Loco!

My girlfriend and I went here on our 5th day in Costa Rica. We had already been to 10 different restaurants in both Jaco and Monteverde, and I can honestly sau this was the best restaurant we have visited to date. In one day we visited twice! I had the Spare ribs and they were to die for. They literally fell off the bones. Don't skip this place if you are in Santa Teresa!!
