We had lunch here and it's a really good place. Pros: - really delicious food. Slice of pizza is huge and tastes yummy! Everything was fresh and delicious!! - nice relaxing ambience. Cons: - very slow service (allow 30 to 40 minutes to order) - slow WiFi (I would say NO WiFi) Anyway I really did like this place :-)

We were so happy to find a pizza place listed on Trip Advisor while in St. John, Antigua. We came in on a cruise ship that had terrible pizza so we were ready for it. Service was super friendly and not too long a wait despite them having fairly steady eat-in and take-out business. Seemed like a popular place. We... More

Casual, low-key place that seems popular with families. It took quite a while (nearly an hour) to get our pizza and shrimp, and the restaurant had run out of the plaintain we ordered. Enjoyed the food well enough but I don't think I would return.

This place was recommended to us by a local and it offered reasonably priced eats and drinks. It's actually hidden behind another establishment so we wouldn't have seen it had it not been recommended to us. It wasn't that busy while we were there but the wait for food and drinks was a little longer than it should have been.... More

Super friendly staff, and a great place to chill if your flight is delayed and you've got several hours to kill at the airport. It's located in the old terminal. From the new terminal, walk out, and turn left, walk 2min, you'll arrive at the old terminal, find the stairs, go upstairs, follow signs for Big Banana. Great speed free... More

The Big Banana offers standard fare, rates itself for pizzas, which are indeed rate-worthy. Flakey notions of customer support... try ordering and asking for WiFi code - if staff are busy then you get turned away!

Friends recommended this place. Great place to grab a burger & fries. The only thing I had to keep reminding myself is "you're on island time"! Lol! Slooowww service with not to many people there (low season). Fun place though! Would recommend.
