We have been going here for 10 years and have never had a bad meal or service. We usually get local caught fish, grilled with garlic and butter, but the chicken dishes are also very good. The homemade Flan is the best we have ever had. Family owed and staffed you can sit out front at one of two tables... More

Carlos (one of our Divemasters) turned us on to this place run by his parents. Delicious, well-prepared food in a quaint local spot just a few blocks east of downtown. In a hurry on Saturday to catch a plane? The burgers are out of this world and come up quickly.

Enjoyed a nice dinner in this friendly, family operated restaurant. Had a variety of dishes - beef, chicken, very creamy curried pasta (very different and delicious) and fresh local fish.

One of our boat crew took about 12 of us there. His family owns the place. It has to be the BEST food I have EVER had in the 6 trips I have made. Thanks Carlos and looking foward to next year....

Our group of scuba friends enjoyed a wonderful evening together at Mi Banana! The menu has a wide variety of dishes for a small family operated restaurant. Each dish was beautifully presented and everyone raved about their dinner choice! We managed to find room to sample several of the dessert offerings which were also incredibly delicious. Best food value we... More

We were in Bonaire for a dive trip and one of our dive masters, Carlos, suggested we visit his family restaurant. Four of us went one night and he was there working after a long day on the dive boats! His mother helped us as well as Carlos. The menu is traditional with lots of choices. There were some nice...

One of our dive masters recommended Mi Banana, which lived up to everything we were told. The restaurant is family owned and operated and offers an expansive menu of Great Columbian food, which made it difficult to decide between several items that sounded awesome. Prices were reasonable Carlos treated us like family.

One of our group found this place online before our trip. So glad she did! Extensive menu; great food; most reasonable prices of any place we ate on the island! Would definitely go back.

Mi Banana is fabulous. Unlike most places on the island their food is worth what you pay for. My snapper was perfectly prepared. The waitstaff is very friendly and is helpful if you have questions. It is well worth traveling off the beaten path for.
