Really great food and excellentReally great food and excellent service from Diana.
The catch of the day crepe was fantastic!4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMSecond time even betterI visited Banana Café twice during my six day visit to Key West. It is on the quieter, classier south end of Duval, and close to my B&B on Elizabeth Street. The food, like everywhere in Key West, is more expensive than similar places in cities I frequent, but hey, you can't get off the island for dinner, exactly. I had the stuffed pork chop with asparagus and mashed potatoes. It was tasty and filling. The bread at Banana Café is the best I've ever had in the US. They serve it will an interesting dish of butter pats in herb-infused olive oil...the best of both for dipping and spreading. I'll for sure return to Banana Café on my next visit to KW.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food! The seats by theGreat food! The seats by the open windows make for great people watching too.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMA good test of a restaurant'aA good test of a restaurant'a service is how a single woman is treated, and Bsnana Cafe made me feel very welcome. I was dining late and did not feel rushed at all. The nion soup is excellent, and the fresh tuna nicoise very good. Nice wine list by the glass. This is a spot to return to often. It's on the quiet, stylish end of Duval,perfect for locals and tourists alike. Many nice shops and galleries to browse on the way.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe best baguettes ever!This wonderful neighborhood cafe has been an institution for breakfast and lunch crepes in Key West for many years. It has added dinner service. The cafe itself is limited in terms of what it can do to transform the venue daily, but the owners make a definite and successful effort. They have created a nice evening atmosphere by using candles crisp white table clothes and linens, and a bistro uniformed waitstaff. The chef serves a delicious French bistro evening menu. The food becomes the main attraction at night. The French onion soup is divine, and served with a large crouton and plenty of cheese. It can be an entree when paired with any of the other delicious appetizers. The baguettes are marvelous!!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFine dining with laid-back vibeExcellent food--prepared to enhance rather than drown the fine ingredients. My own dish--yellowtail snapper with gnocchi and green beans--was superb. Very nice salad as well of marinated fennel with shaved onion. Nice atmosphere--the weather cooperated, and we ate on the upstairs deck. Portions did not overwhelm but were just right. Great vibe. Not a tourist trap; not glitzy, slick, or pretentious; but fine. Attentive service but not obtrusive. If the noise was moderate that's because my own party of seven made a good deal of it. I hope to return to Key West and I would absolutely eat here again in a heartbeat.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMAnn and I love The BananaAnn and I love The Banana Cafe. We have a lot of visitors in Key West and we almost always take them to The Banana on the 1st or 2nd night because it is a perfect first impression of Key West food and service. We love Adrianna and the rest of the staff.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMWe will be back.Excellent variety of food. We had 7 in our group and everyone had an excellent meal. We will definitely return!

The food was excellent, the service friendly and ambiance lovely! This restaurant really stands out as excellent in all areas! A wonderufl find!3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMVery Good Bistro DiningThe name is misleading insofar as there's not much banana but plenty of French bistro atmosphere. Very good food with some ingenious crepe-based presentations. Service is there when needed but not in your face. A quite adequate wine selection. An altogether very pleasant dining experience -- name notwithstanding.1/10/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved it!!! Great food.Loved it!!! Great food.
