Fodor's Review

For consistently good American-style food, you can't beat this breezy marina restaurant with a view of expensive yachts and sportfishing boats. Locals complain that the prices are high, but portions are hefty, and include generous salads, sizzling hamburgers, excellent chicken fajitas, and a delicious grilled dorado sandwich with a mountain of fries. Shrimp and fish plates are pricier—$15 to $22—but they couldn't be fresher, straight off the local boats. It's open for breakfast, too. Try the Eggs in Hell, consisting of two poached eggs smothered in hot sauce. While you're waiting for your order, take advantage of the free Wi-Fi.

We heard a lot about Banana Bay. We decided to try it. After sitting for about 5 minutes, the server came over, handed us a menu and said "We have no fish, and no shrimp". So, we went to the the Mar y Luna.
