Whenever I'm on Nevis I like to eat at Bananas at least 2 or 3 times in the 18 days we're usually there. The food is excellent, as is the ambiance and the whole experience. What's changed recently, however, is the menu. Whereas before the...More

Thanks for the good but not glowing review, as a regular I probably know you, and i was definitely anticipating some of these comments when i changed the menu. This was NOT a business decision..if it was just about money I would open a KFC...More

We just loved Bananas, especially after a very poor evening at Mangoes the night before. The setting and ambience are very cool and the views enjoying a sundowner looking down over Nevis was very pleasant. Food was excellent, great dishes and choice for vegetarians. I...More

We had a group of 16 for dinner tonight and from the before-dinner cocktails to dinner and dessert, this was a fantastic dining experience. I enjoyed a Victoria Beckham cocktail to start, then for dinner I enjoyed the vegetable summer roll and the shrimp satay....More

We visited Bananas while on holiday in Nevis. We hadn't booked but were warmly greeted by the manager. Ophelia, and shown to a beautiful table overlooking the restaurant's tropical garden. It's a lush, green little paradise. The food was really first class. Black bean soup,...More

What a cool, eclectic spot to catch sunset overlooking the ocean! Sadly, on the night we were there, it was a little rainy so we'll have to go back to catch a full sunset, but the ambiance made up for it in spades! Drinks were...More

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.
