“Great food, pricey but worth it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

Banana Tree has a varied menu that could please everyone. It is a bit pricey, more so than Room With a View but the food is very, very good. The views are SPECTACULAR!!!!

“Overpriced”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014

We arrived at the restaurant at 8pm, there about 4 occupied tables and when we asked for a table, we were told they try to squeeze us in. We thought they were kidding but they weren't. We shared a starter and had a steak each with a bottle of wine - total cost, which included a 20% compulsory tip, $195 !!! The food wasn't very good and the wine was awful. Never again.

“Great view, great food, great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2014

Our first visit to St. Thomas and what a delightful evening! To start, the view is great. Our server Donita was relaxed and fun while providing efficient service. The food was delicious--among the best we had during the week in St. Thomas. My husband had the classic Caesar salad--delicious. We shared the Tuscan Loaf--very tasty. He had the filet mignon with crushed black peppercorn crust and said it was cooked perfectly; he was very pleased that he ordered it. I had the rosemary citrus braised chicken, and it was simply delicious--tender and moist with perfect seasoning of rosemary and citrus. The garlic mashed potatoes and perfectly steamed broccoli complimented it well. Food presented beautifully--very appetizing. Be aware that menu is a la carte and not cheap, but well worth it. Not strictly a place for couples on a romantic evening out--families were dining also, but it was lovely and relatively quiet. Covered open air seating. We will definitely return to this restaurant on our next visit to St. Thomas.

“Amazing food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2014 via mobile

Excellent place. Pricey but well worth it. We had filet and lobster. The Gorgonzola roasted potatoes were great! And don't forget the banana ravioli for dessert!
