A truly wonderful experience! The food was excellent and the surroundings are unbelievable. It is relaxing place for enjoying lunch. The grounds are beautiful with a chance to catch a glimpse of monkeys.

We have been to Bananas for both lunch and dinner, and the service is excellent. The prices are a bit high, but worth it for a special dinner. The menu is interesting and the food excellent. The setting is like a tropical paradise. I would...More

The service at Bananas is top notch from the water servers up to the manager who was incredibly helpful with a particular need. On Nevis we became accustomed to hearing "we're out of this" or "this is not on the menu tonight" but at Bananas...More

A group of us went there just before sunset. We had drinks at the upper level deck with a perfect view of sunset. After that, we had a wonderful meal. The staff, food and setting were perfect. A must stop in Nevis.

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.
