Banana Cantina - Welcome or Rehearsal Dinner Spot

Recommended Posts

I just wanted to tell you all about my welcome dinner spot, BananaCantina because I am in love with this place! I hadn't seen it before a site visit last week and I'm so happy I chose the location. It is right in the Romantic Zone near La Palapa restaurant - about a block up from the beach.

 

Jae, the manager, graciously showed us the restaurant even though they were closed for the summer. It is a gorgeous quaint little Contemporary Mexican place - and it is super affordable (one of the most affordable restaurants for a welcome dinner of all the ones I contacted and even nicer than a lot of them). What I loved about it the most is that we are able to have a private dinner - since the restaurant holds about 55 people.

 

Anyway - here is the website: Banana Cantina - A Puerto Vallarta Restaurant - and I will be sure to post a full review when I return from our wedding, but I would highly recommend this place. The pictures on the website are exactly how it looks in person and the owner and manager are so nice. They are American also- so definitely easy to talk to/email.

Does anyone have any pictures that would do it justice? This was one of the suggestions from my wedding coordinator but I was not that impressed with the website and couldn't get an idea of the view.

I don't have any good pics as it was closed up when we were there a few weeks ago. I will however take lots of pics at our welcome dinner in November, and post them then.

 

Not sure what you are looking for, but the ambiance is more trendy/modern. There are huge windows that open up to the outside, and it is on the second floor.

 

There is a video on the website that does a pretty good job of showing you the restaurant...have you watched it?

Awesome Jess! It is so great that you were able to visit too for piece of mind! We did ours site unseen and were blown away- but we talk about how it could have gone the other way just as easy!

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
