We missed Banankeet last time we were in Tortola as we visited in September when it isn't just low season it is ... no season! As most of the restaurants are closed for maintenance and vacation for their staff prior to the high season. But this time we got to eat at Bananakeet twice! Delicious fritters one time they were...

This was our third time visiting this restaurant over our last several visits to Tortola. It has very good local food. Very good service. We had pumpkin soup and tuna tartar as starters. Then shrimp curry and lobster of dinner. Very good reasonably priced wine list. Can't wait to go back the next time we visit.

What a great place for a sunset dinner !! The food was good, the wait staff was great, the wine was excellent and the view was awesome. I would definitely recommend this place for dinner.

We visited last week for the second or third time. Every time the food is very good. The service is good but the views are amazing. Make sure you schedule dinner around sunset you don't want to miss it!!!

Went to the Bananakeet Cafe for sunset and dinner. The sunset was fabulous and the dinner was good. Nice place, good wine list. I ordered the jerk pork loin, but it was too spicy for my north american taste buds. For someone else, it would be fine. Good service, easy to get there by taxi from Long Bay. Definitely go... More

Amazing food, fantastic service, gorgeous view, and delicious drinks. Definitely recommend going here for a beautiful sunset dinner. Make sure to ask for Ninja at the bar. He makes the best mojitos.

For sure, sunset was amazing here, but it felt touristy. Shots at sunset, lots of people, and food was mediocre. I got coconut seafood plate, and all the seafood was dry. Just boring. Views were nice though!

We were told by our cab driver that this was the *best* place to go on Tortola ... and buy, was he right! It is a must see for their fabulous sunset views. We had seats right on the rail with amazing views of the sunset over Jost Van Dyke. Sadly, we had to switch to a table after the... More

This place is a must if you are on Tortola. Make sure you get there a little before sunset so you can take a few pictures before dinner. The food was great too!

This restaurant has an amazing view of the sunset. Go for a drink as service is so slow. My meal was not what I ordered and too bland. The waiter did not apologize but made excuses. However, watching the sunset was worth the experience. Next time we have a drink to watch the sunset and go elsewhere for dinner.
