Although I have only been here once back in 2012 I must say they have left a lasting impression! The food is awesome as well as the ambiance of this place. There was entertainment the night we were there which we enjoyed very much.

This is a must-do fine dining choice on Tortola, high on a hill overlooking the water and BVIs. Perched on a hill, there's a spectacular view from tables on the patio. There was live music the night we came. Food and service would excellent.

The place has been renovated a bit since we were here last; it's a beautful space made even more compelling by its spectacular location. Excellent food and attentive service. Parking can be a bit challenging, as it's perched 'way up the hill overlooking Carrot Bay.

We were staying along at Carrot Bay and visited this restaurant twice and my husband enjoyed the Chimichanga Beef so much the first night that I had it the second and it was probably the best steak meal we have ever had. I also enjoyed the pork loin dish and the tuna carpaccio the night before. A lot of people... More

A lot of reviews indicating this is one of the best restaurants on Tortola. I admit it is good. The food is presented very well and time has been taking in the preparation. We tried the almond crusted chicken and the pork loin last night and I would have to say that while the meat was cooked well both meals... More

Favorite eating place on Tortola! The chef puts a great local flavor on his food offerings with a menu that will satisfy anyone. Fresh local fish is awesome, so is the Churrasco steak wich I had twice! Their version af a Bushwacker is the must have drink at Bananakeet! MAKE RESERVATIONS IN ADVANCE!

This restaurant is one of our favorites on Tortola. Great Views and wonderful food. Make a reservation and be there for sunsets. Parking is an issue in their parking lot but you can park on the hill.

At the recommendation of our skipper, Jack and I headed up to BananaKeet's for dinner. The staff was amazingly friendly and accommodating. We split the tuna tartare, which was amazing...fresh, tasty and light. For dinner, they made me the veg pasta and added some shrimp for protein. It was exactly what i was in the mood for. Jack had the... More

This place is unusual! As you will see from other reviews, people love the food and the view over the islands is to die for, but it lack any atmosphere or charm and it feels a little odd eating dinner around a (rather cloudy) swimming pool? The staff are a mixed bag, as for most of the islands, the girls... More
