We first visited Bananakeet in 2007 and then again in 2015. We visited again and found it to be just as amazing as we remembered. Perfect views, fantastic atmosphere, amazing cuisine. This is still one of my absolute favorite places to dine in Tortola. Gotta go back!

This is THE place to be to catch a spectacular sunset! Eight of us arrived for dinner on a Wednesday just prior to sunset. We experienced terrific food, a wonderful selection of beverages, and great service. Just as the sun was about to set, we were served a complimentary "Sundowner" drink to toast the close of another day. I highly... More

The setting is the highlight but the food is terrific. Possibly the best in the west end. Brunch was a little underwhelming compared with dinner, but very good, nonetheless. You shouldn't miss it.

Nothing bad to say here, except go before sunset or you miss out on half the experience. Excellent food, drinks, and service!

My wife and I recently enjoyed dinner at this restaurant for the first time. We arrived before sunset, which I highly recommend so that you can take advantage of the views from this high hillside location. The food was good, but not spectacular. Also, I am on a restricted low-salt diet, and the restaurant was not as accommodating as other... More

Beautiful views at sunset. The drinks, appetizers, and dinner were very good. We sat out on the terrace overlooking the water. Get there early and get a great seat for sunset.

It's rare here to have both good food and good service at the same sitting. This café serves West Indian fare and does it well. Nicely presented, too. I had the jerked pork tenderloin accompanied by superbly prepared veggies and mashed potato. A real taste treat. You should go there for the sunset and then dine. The views are some... More
