Super friendly staff, and a great place to chill if your flight is delayed and you've got several hours to kill at the airport. It's located in the old terminal. From the new terminal, walk out, and turn left, walk 2min, you'll arrive at the old terminal, find the stairs, go upstairs, follow signs for Big Banana. Great speed free... More

The Big Banana offers standard fare, rates itself for pizzas, which are indeed rate-worthy. Flakey notions of customer support... try ordering and asking for WiFi code - if staff are busy then you get turned away!

Friends recommended this place. Great place to grab a burger & fries. The only thing I had to keep reminding myself is "you're on island time"! Lol! Slooowww service with not to many people there (low season). Fun place though! Would recommend.

Had lunch here on a visit to St Johns. We found the food {pizza} just ok. The location is near the quayside close to the hustle and bustle of the city. Not a place to linger as is St Johns.

Went for dinner whilst on a business trip. Food was quite ordinary. Not poor, but not exceptional either. Try the Beehive nearby in Heritage Quay.

Ate here on two occasions and also had take out. The food is tasty and satisfying. The pizzas are a must have especially the one with all the meats, don't recall the name of it unfortunately. The bartender on one occasion was quite crappy, couldnt mix drinks to save his life if it depended on it. It can become crowded... More

This pizzeria near the quay-side in St Johns does huge fresh and tasty pizzas with a good balance of mozzarella and tomato plus any toppings you could desire, and I'm abit of a fusspot when it comes to pizza.
