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!

Our food wasn't the best we've ever had (although the donuts for dessert were amazing) but the atmosphere is just divine. We went for dinner, you get welcomed at the bottom of a lit walk way and takes you up to this perfectly island styled...More

This place was a recommendation from a friend. Drive up into the mountain. You seem to have been transported to a treehouse restaurant unparalleled Location and Attmosphere. We had Mussels with curry coconut. A pile of mussels like you have never seen. Amazing. We also...More

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.
