After a morning of exploring the island, we stopped in at Bananas, a well-reputed restaurant along the Malecon in Esperanza for lunch. We all ordered salads, and each one was delicious.

Nothing exciting here. Mediocre ceviche... the fish was nice, but it was overloaded with sweet pepppers and no cilantro. The lobster rangoons were pretty bad. The fish in the fish tacos was very tasty, but the guacamole in the tacos was tasteless. My husband thought the pork sliders were good, but they seemed sweet to me.

We came here at 9:30 PM to get some apps and drinks after going to the bio bay. They seated our party of 4 quickly. The drinks were good and the apps were tasty and fast.

The seafood was great (best Calamari and mussels ever!) and we thought it was the most food for your money.
