the best sunsets, good service, amazing food. Make reservations for a prime table to enjoy the view, get there early for sunset shots, and try the ahi tuna appetizer- it is the best thing I have tried ANYWHERE in ages!!

High on the hill side a nice restaurant with good food, and excellent view. Even though the wind blows you have a wonderful view and the wind keeps it a little cooler to enjoy. For appetizer we enjoyed tuna wontons. Dinner was Caribbean spiced beef, spicy jerk pork tenderloin, and coconut rum shrimp in a cream sauce. Then onto dessert... More

We came here with a group of friends in February. I'd highly recommend trying to make it for sunset, as they do a toast with a free shot, and the pictures from here are amazing. It's high up on the mountainside, and you get a view of the entire bay. The food here has more variety than most places on... More

We visited Banankeet on our second day in Tortola. The food was amazing!!!!! We didn't have a reservation at the time, and the hostess seemed a bit annoyed that we didn't and she sat us next to the man playing music. After a couple of minutes we asked nicely (and $10 tip in hand) if we can move to a... More

We just had dinner at the Banana Keet café and was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food. The spot is great,particularly for sunset, but even during the day. I thought the food would be okay but it was absolutely terrific. We followed our servers recommendations and his choices were perfect. My wife had a beef dinner and I... More

Sunset spectacular and.........Jerk pork tenderloin consistently wonderful, ribs which have come up to and surpassed island standards. Life is good. Went several times. All entrees were well prepared and well presented. And we all know the view is the best on the island. Staff friendly and helpful, although at sunset it does get a bit hectic. Reservations needed during peak... More

Schedule your dinner to catch the sunset. Maybe a third of the tables took multiple photos, some with professional equipment.

We dined at BananaKeet Cafe last evening. The sunset views from our table could not have been any better. Denise, our server, was excellent and the food delicious. The crab fritters were delectable. All 4 of us enjoyed our meal which ended with the BananaKeet Pie! Try it if you happen to have any room left for dessert. 😊
