Visited Bananas 3 times during our stay in Esperanza. Great Happy Hour from 4:30-6 with $1 fish tacos and $4 margaritas. Other food was great too, with friendly staff. Highly recommend.

We stopped by for appetizers before our kayaking adventure on the Bioluminescent Bay. Our server couldn't have been nicer & offered suggestions on portion size and seasonings. We returned after kayaking and some main courses. Food was yummy. Great Painkillers too.

Stopped in Esperanza for a quick lunch before visiting La Chivas. Popped in here on a whim as they were having a happy hour. Now I hadn't eaten in a few hours, but wow, their rum punch is definitely a great value for the happy hour price. Was feeling a buzz after the first one! Tasty as well. The food... More

Perfect place for after beach lunch and drinks. Generous margarita glasses; fish tacos and mango salad are a must-eat!

Decent but not great food. Slow service. Some food was burnt. Would not come back as the food quality didn't match the prices.

This place has a good fun vacation vibe! It is most popular with the foreigners. It has ample sitting, good music and a big menu! When we went the place was packed and the service was fast, attentive and food was great!!

We have always loved bananas and the food quality is good. This year, however, we felt ourselves rushed by the staff. Our food came out at the same time as the appetizers and our waitress seemed to be in a hurry to get us out of the restaurant. We still love this place but whose other options this trip where...

I was impressed with the food here - liked the fact that there were some local fusion-style dishes, at a price which was not too expensive. We ate here twice, and it had a lively atmosphere with good service and tasty food - the cocktails were ok. The only thing that put me off this place is that on the... More

Don't let the silly name fool you. This was our best meal on Vieques. Plenty of seafood and other options to please anyone. Great atmosphere across from the beach. We met a few locals here so another sign it's a great find!

We wanted to eat at a new place every night, but Bananas was such a fresh treat we had to come back a second night! The service was just as refreshing as the food. Fresh caught fish served in the amazingly delicious fish tacos was worth writing home about. And the drinks were very reasonably priced. Would suggest to anyone... More
