We went here a few times during our trip. Go Around 5-5:30pm. Sunsets are around 630 and they are worth the wait. Food and drinks are excellent! A great view looking back towards St. Thomas with a nice ocean breeze.

We loved, loved, loved BananaKeet for dinner during our visit to Tortola. The fish dishes were delicious and large enough to share. We also had the steak served at our table and had plenty to give everyone a taste. We were there just as the slow season was kicking in so we heard "oh, the cook decided not to make... More

Absolutely fabulous. The food is tasty. Chef Spice and his team in the kitchen is consistent. I ordered the mix seafood pasta the last two times I've been there. The lamb and steaks are fabulous also. Coconut cream pie is off the chart..

We had a lovely time a Bananakeet. It was during the off season and just before the local Emancipation Holiday so the menu was limited but the service was great and the food was nice. It was also a little windy, but that didn't stop the show! the Sunset is amazing and it is highly recommended to go there for... More

I've always loved this restaurant, and usually visit it at least once when I visit Tortola. The view is as astounding as always. The food was reasonable, but not fantastic. However, there were two things that really disappointed me on this occasion: 1. When it came to dessert, three of the six options were unavailable. Our booking was early in... More

We recently celebrated my wife's birthday at BananaKeet during our trip to Tortola's West End. Great service and a beautiful view. The menu has a good selection of meat, fish, and vegetarian options. I especially liked the Tuna WonTon appetizer, which I found out about via a review on TripAdvisor! The prices are a little higher, but the ambiance, view... More

A very good meal and drinks with the second to none view of the sunset in Tortola. The Churrasco beef was perfectly cooked, melting in the mouth. Quite pricy but worth it

Have had a house on Tortola for 28 years and have always supported the restaurants on the island. Our favorite restaurant in past years, the Sugar Mill, totally disappointed us last year. We and a lot of our friends vowed never to return. Since then we have been looking for that replacement. Bananakeet has been highly recommended so we decided... More

We are very sorry about your experience. We really try to make everyone happy at BananaKeet. Ironically, after speaking with the staff, the waitress that waited on your table remembered your table. It was a very busy night and you had no reservation and they still tried to accommodate you. After your complaint, the waitress actually paid for your dinner... More
