This was above all our best night out during our week stay on Nevis. The owner herself came by as we were being seated to say hello. We were a table of nine, and the service was impeccable. Our only regret...that we didn't find it...More

Of all the places we dined during our week on Nevis, Bananas is simply the best. Upper deck for sunset cocktails, then dinner downstairs. Carribean upscale, creative menu, excellent service. Go here first so you can return later during your stay.

Nestled high up on Hamilton Estate, Bananas is well worth a visit. An earlier recce to visit the Hamilton ruins made it easy to locate in the dark. Christmas Eve with carollers ensured a special atmosphere. Well prepared food (but confusing winelist) and excellent service...More

Nice restaurant, in an interesting location. Cater to vegetarians, with a nice but limited vegetarian menu). We didn't' make if for sunset but apparently the sunset view is amazing.

Great place! The setting is magical, and the food is fantastic. Great service, though far from cheap! You need to know about this place, or get a taxi (taxis certainly know how to find it): it was recommended by a person we talked to on...More

Driving to Bananas in the dark is, well, a bit bananas but definitely worth it! Delicious food, gorgeous setting and a fun atmosphere. It's somewhat like dining in a funky, eclectic treehouse! The adjacent store provided a shopping opportunity which are few and far between...More

I'll keep this review short. If you're in Nevis please do yourself a favour and go to Banana's. The lush surroundings and the amazing views on the drive up and not to mention to great food are worth every penny. Also, they make great cocktails.

We ate here as a family early in our week's stay on Nevis. The food was very good but also expensive (even by the standards of an expensive island on which to eat!). Not that easy to find but probably worth a special occasion.

Our favorite restaurant on the island...enjoy drinks from the deck, local flavors, art work and a very relaxed atmosphere.

This was such a gem. The food is my favorite on the island, the atmosphere is interesting and the birthdays are the best.

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.
