Description: 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.

Nestled among beautiful fauna that the owner has carefully and lovingly landscaped, this restaurant is a hidden gem. If you arrive a bit before the sun sets, you can sit up high and enjoy and appertif while watching the sun go down. It doesn't get any better than this. The food is deliciously prepared and presented. The wait staff is friendly and accommodating. I had the mahi mahi and my husband and the other couple we were with enjoyed what they ordered also. They have a very good wine selection and drinks that have names. I had the Victoria Beckham which is Ketel vodka and grapefruit juice which was very light. I normally just drink wine, but this was quite pleasant. There was a birthday when we were there, and the staff gather aound the table and sing happy birthday and sparklers adorn the dessert for a bit. It was very festive and we joined in to wish the birthday boy a happy one. There is also a boutique that carries not only local items, but ones from other countries that the owner has
picked up on her own travels. We had wine with dinner and the desserts looked divine, but we were too full. The menu does not have any red meat items. It is mostly fish and vegetarian, but all very good and different. If you want to enjoy a beautiful sunset, relax with a drink while doing so, and dine in an aesthetically pleasing environment serving delicious food, then Bananas is a must.

Wonderful restaurant but as your cab is taking you there past the wild donkeys and abandoned cars...don’t fret. Worth the hike. Wonderful ambience at night. Great outdoor seating area and very few bugs. Food was excellent. Reasonable corkage so we brought our own wine. Service was very smooth. This is a fun place with great food and the best is the house dog that comes to sit with you. Perfect

A very unique place with a well balanced menu. The fresh fish is caught that day and if they run out its because that's all the could catch. The upper deck has a great sunset view and the service is friendly but not over the top. Its priced the same as other upper end Nevis restaurants. We all had fish or lobster and it was prepared perfectly. A must try if you want to get off property from a hotel.

My wife and I got last minute reservations for special prix fixe meal. It was just wonderful. I had the red snapper and she had lobster thermidor, both were the best we had ever had. Service was fantastic, the place was gorgeous, and it was a great experience. We went back a few days later to enjoy cocktails on the roof and watch the sunset.
This is indeed a treasure on this wonderful island. Make sure to enjoy a great meal at Bananas. You will be happy.
