we'll be arriving quite late in the afternoon on a friday...by the time we get checked in and settled into Banana Beach...we'll probably be more than ready for something to eat...but instead of just taking the "easy" way and eating at the hotel...thought it might be nice to take a short walk to see a bit before we retire (and we'll likely be eating more than one meal at BB)...

is there anything good close by? not looking for fine dining...burgers & pizza for my husband...anything with fish for me...

don't want to walk all the way to town...but something within 10 minutes walk?

Mikell, if my memory serves me correctly, the closest would be El Patio and Jerry's Crab Shack. Jerry's would be at least a 10 minute walk, maybe 15. El Patio is closer.

thanks kathy...checked out el patio online menu...looks and sounds pretty good...have you eaten there? how's the food?

if we walked up the beach a ways...could we find something on the water? wouldn't mind a nice view of the ocean while we dine our first evening there...but we will have an ocean front balcony view later anyway... smile

Mikell, I hate to be the one to make this public but walk down the beach to the south or take a taxi to Caribbean Villas and you will enjoy the finest dinner on the island. Trust me, thats where the expats go.

Whew! Confusion! Jerrys Crab Shack is clear in to town by Tropic, much more than 10 min. walk. El Patio has relocated in town center. Caribbean Villas has never had any restaurant. Perhaps Ernie was thinking of Carib Island which is located about 20-30 min. south. You could walk north on the beach by Banyan Bay to Ricos. Or have a good, cheap local meal at Antojitos on the road just north of Banyan Bay. Or get Chinese takeout just south 100 yds across the street from Banana Beach.

thanks for clearing that up jesse!! *laughing*

i get the feeling that if we just walk in any direction we'll smell food! seems you can't go wrong. i know we aren't going to go hungry!

i like the idea of trying some of the smaller places that don't get much publicity...a local hang out? maybe try that. what does Rico's serve? i'd go for chinese maybe...but alan won't...gotta be a place he can get "simple" food...AKA...burgers/pizza and that sort of food...or at least unadulterated beef or chicken...he's VERY picky!

For a first meal close to Banana Beach, but not at El Divino, I think I'd agree with Jesse and say go to Rico's. It's just 3 or 4 minutes away. The food's not fantastic, but it's okay, and the setting right on the water is one of the best on the island. You can certainly get fish and other seafood there, chicken and various other straight-forward stuff.
