Ok- maybe we are creatures of habit but when you find a salad as good as the chopped salad with grilled shrimp at Bananas you gotta come back for it! Again and again as it happened! The service was a little awkward once or twice but other than that it was top notch! So glad to have found it!

Ate here twice during our 4-day stay in Esperanza and loved it both times. The paella was excellent on our first visit and the seafood mofongo on the second visit was even better. My wife had red snapper on a salad and on a sandwich--it was done perfectly both times. Service was great, too. Food was better a more expensive... More

The drinks are fantastic and it's right on the malecón in the middle of everything so that's nice. The fish and chips are divine, I wasn't overly impressed with dessert, but such is life.

Happy Hour specials also great and the bartenders are the best, you know who you are, Mark, David, Richard, Elizabeth, Kelly....There is a lot of hustle at... More

The place was in front of the malecon, next to a bunch of restaurants around the area. It was 6:30pm and there were not that much people around. They had a Happy Hour special, but that ended at 6pm. We ordered a few appetizers and they were all pretty tasty. I liked the Mahi fried fish, but the fried calamari... More

great food and happy hour. The drinks were great for happy hour and you get a lot of fish on each fish taco. We even ate there two nights in a row. It is right across from the ocean, it is beautiful and we loved sitting outside (inside is an option but it's open as well).
