We ate pork mofongo and paella here. Also had burgers. Food was good but not great, but the open air dining looking out at the water was nice.

This restaurant has a well-diversified menu that incorporates local flavors into fresh dishes. The fish (for fish tacos, fish and chips or the fish sandwich) is amazing, the salads are fresh and everything was tasty. Happy hour offers $4 fish tacos that make for a great snack after a day at the beach.

I ate at Bananas and the food was good. If you like coconut, you must try the Red Snapper and Mahi Mahi. Their sides were just okay. But they definitely made up for it at desert. The brownie w/ bananas and ice cream was amazing!!

We had not eaten at Bananas in at least 5 years. Since there are new owners, we decided to give it a try once again. The ceviche was awesome - we are big fans, so are very happy when we find some that we like. Ample portion too. Mahi wrap was delicious. Happy Hour burger special was ample - unfortunately fries cold on both. We tried the red velvet ice cream - it was different and quite good. Hope's service was great. Glad to see they have renovated the restrooms a bit - that was one of the reasons we didn't eat there in the last 5 years. We'll be back.

I ate a Banana's last year on my trip to Vieques and I was less than impressed. Bananas was the only place open for an early lunch in Esperanza so we gave it another chance, and am I glad that we did! The fish tacos,seafood mofongo, and burgers are AMAZING! The staff all from the US mainland so English was the prefered language. The staff was very attentive and quick (for the Carribean anyways). The bathrooms are very small and hot but that's not really what you come here for. Bananas is a great place to grab a bite while gazing out into the blue Sea.
