Friendly service to tourists in the BVI is rather unusual, we discovered. The servers at BananaKeet were actually friendly to us! The meal was pretty good but a little skimpy for the price. The view on the water was lovely.

We made reservations for dinner but went a little early to catch the sunset. The view is amazing! They have happy hour drink & appetizer specials and at sunset they pass around a free sundowner drink. After sunset we were seated for dinner. Food was good (wasabi tuna and ginger chicken) and the service was great. They had live music... More

This was a perfect spot for sunset cocktails and a wonderful dinner. Service was wonderful, and I wish I could remember exactly what we ordered, but after two weeks on island, I'm having a hard time remember what meals were had where! I recall everything here was superb, however!!

Was told the views were tremendous and the food excellent, but my group didn't get there in time......it was dark by the time we were seated. That was the only disappointment on my visit. The service was very good by island standards, and the food was Exceptional, at a very reasonable cost compared to other better dining establishments on island.... More

The setting is incredible and the restaurant does not rely on the views to attract customers. The cuisine was every bit as excellent. My boyfriend couldn't stop raving about the conch fritters. The pork loin was delicious. I'm not much of a meat eater, but finished every bite. The vegetables were perfectly a la dente. The coconut pie was freshly... More

Wow, Wow. Wow and Wow! The setting, the view, the food and the staff. The night my team and I went to Bananakeet was the final evening of a week's business in the British Virgin Islands. Sunset wasn't the red textbook kind - it was dark, dramatic and moody - the skies opened when we sat for sundowners! The staff... More

No matter what restaurants come and go on Tortola, and they do often, I can always count on Bananakeet Love their pork tenderloin, coconut shrimp and Ahi tuna It's always hard to decide Their tropical drinks are a meal alone! I always get there no later than 5:45 and am never disappointed with a spectacular sunset high on the hill... More

I had a sunset dinner at this cafe 10/27 with new friends I had met on Cane Garden Bay. It was a lovely place, great food, excellent service, and a sunset view that was spectacular. This is a much go to place for those visiting the BVI.
