Shared a personal size pizza with my wife and it was tasty and very satisfying. I am a pizza snob having gone to college in the Bronx. This was better than expected. Servers were friendly and responsive.

In the cruise ship area but definitely for the locals. Mainly doing pizza (good range , well cooked and large), prompt service and loud music. Not a gourmet experience but good value.

For someone who likes pizza hut style this site is FINE, just be prepared to wait and to have one of the worst services in Antigua ... For those who like good Italian pizza DO NOT GO THERE !!!!!!!!!!! I could not like the pizza, we also ordered pasta for my daughter and it was impossible to eat (for us,... More

I'm on vacation and went to town in Antigua and stumbled upon Big Banana. I found this place to be very relaxing. I had a craving for pizza and someone recommended this place. It was a cool, calm friendly environment and they were right about the pizza it was great tasting and awesome. The staff were very polite and on... More

I had a very bad experience. To resume it: I ordered a pizza, restaurant was almost empty and I had to wait 55 minutes to get it, when I complained about it they offered me a free beer to compensate. When I got the bill, the “free” beer was included so I complained to the waitress who told me to... More

Not gourmet by any standards, but good food, and filled with a mix of locals and tourists. They were out of a couple of items but the food we did have was tasty.

We had lunch here and it's a really good place. Pros: - really delicious food. Slice of pizza is huge and tastes yummy! Everything was fresh and delicious!! - nice relaxing ambience. Cons: - very slow service (allow 30 to 40 minutes to order) - slow WiFi (I would say NO WiFi) Anyway I really did like this place :-)

We were so happy to find a pizza place listed on Trip Advisor while in St. John, Antigua. We came in on a cruise ship that had terrible pizza so we were ready for it. Service was super friendly and not too long a wait despite them having fairly steady eat-in and take-out business. Seemed like a popular place. We... More

Casual, low-key place that seems popular with families. It took quite a while (nearly an hour) to get our pizza and shrimp, and the restaurant had run out of the plaintain we ordered. Enjoyed the food well enough but I don't think I would return.
