A friend recommended BananaKeet to us. I have been on Tortola many times and never been to Carrot Bay. Boy have I missed out. BananaKeet is the best food I have ever eaten on Tortola. And on top of that, the view out over Carrot Bay is spectacular. It is the best place on Tortola to watch the sunset. The... More

By far the meal tonight at Bananakeet was the best on Tortola to date. The service was great, meals above average and pricing better than at other Cane Garden Bay Area restaurants. The only issue I have is that I made the reservation on 1/8 for 1/13 and asked for a table by the railing to view sunset with a... More

We dined here during our stay for the holidays 16/17 I think this was one of the best meals we had on the Island. Easy off street parking(turn in before the hotel). We had a party of 7 and varied from the main dishes so we waited for a bit but well worth the wait.Drinks were fun and well thought... More

Visited January 2017. Food was good but took 3 hours to get it...no exaggeration. If it wasn't for the company, conversation and view we would have walked out. This is probably why they have a mandatory 15% tip added to bill.

All the food was great, but the service could use some upgrading. I know the whole island time thing, but 1 1/2 hours for our dinner was ridiculous - and the waitress had attitude the whole time. The kitchen clearly wasn't that busy, so ...If you want to drink for a couple fo ours and then eat, the food is... More

Upon arrival we were told by our waitress that the sooner we could order the better even though we were on time for our reservation. She was a bit taken aback that my husband wasn't with us yet as he was parking the car?? Terrible service and dinner took over an hour to arrive. The view is spectacular but that's... More

If you want good food, good service and the chance of dining to watch a perfect sunset then this place will do it all. There is a bar and small pool with a restaurant hanging on the side of the cliff. The views are spectacular. Restaurants should provide great food, this one does. Great choices and happy to listen to... More

A pleasant overlook westward and great place to see the sunset. Food was good and reasonably priced, and the service was good. A good place to take the family as it is not too fancy, yet very pleasant.
