Location and contact

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.

We came across Bananas Cafe while driving around looking for lunch. We had such a lovely lunch that we decided to come back for dinner. The menu and attention to detail were exceptional. We will definitely be back on our next visit!
