White Banana has easily become our top place to go for incredibly delicious food and well made drinks in General Luna, Siargao. It is tucked away off the main road in General Luna just passed Kalinaw and Siargao Bleu resorts. It's a beautiful open concept...resto bar with beach and ocean access (though not the best for swimming due to the rocks/coral). Jimi, the owner, is welcoming and accommodating, wanting to make sure you enjoy all aspects of time there. The menu is diverse in what they offer and even our meat loving friends found the food incredibly delicious and returned a few times on our two-week trip. The cocktails are top notch and the wall of gins etc. show a true love of mixology. Happy hour is from 4-5 and is buy one take one on all cocktails! We loved coming for happy hour, listening to the music mixed with the sounds of the ocean, and then order appetizers and dinner, followed by dessert- which easily lasted hours because we loved it all so much! The animals on the property are also very friendly, with our particular favorites being Totti the most cuddly cat and Aperol the dog, the husky-daschund mix. My spouse also had a huge crush on the little puppy they will soon add to the family named Joe Pesci :P. We are also educators so we loved spending time with their little girls, playing different games (they loved rock-paper-scissors- and are learning to play chess). However, they do give you space if you are not into it. We absolutely love what Jimi has done in this space with everything from the drinks to the food to the music and the location. We will absolutely be regulars whenever we make it back to the island. We HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend White Banana. It is an absolute MUST if you make it to the gorgeous Siargao Island.More

Hi Amanda, Thanks for your beautiful word. We are sad to announce that Totti left us, due to not friendly dogs in the neighborhood, he wasn't able to make it safe few nights ago. We like to think that his spirit is running around the...More

A wonderful place to visit for a delicious cocktail and lovely food. We went over Christmas and visited nearly every night. Very friendly owners and a relaxing place to sit on the beach and chill. We Highly recommend the White Banana!

The food, the drinks, the animals, the kids, the view, the music, the owner, the vibe - it’s all good at white banana! We visited several times over two weeks and had our New Year’s Eve meal there as well. Even though Jimi flew in...a chef from Manila for a special menu, he was awesome at accommodating our vegan diet as we were allowed to order off the main menu instead. Jimi works tirelessly for this place and it shows. His kids are adorable and the animals they rescue are well taken care of. We will be thinking of everyone and everything from white banana for quite some time. Much love to Totti, Joe Pesci, and the rest of the fur babies and family! Thanks for the memories!More

Stunning place in a perfect setting by the sea - the perfect spot to lounge on comfy cushions and work or sip cocktails while you watch the waves. If you love cocktails, you have to come here, because theirs are the BEST on the island...- Jimi is truly a master of his craft. I wanted to try everything on their drinks menu. He and his wife, Gayle, are the warmest and most accommodating hosts, and that, combined with great ambience, great bites (tuna sisig is particularly awesome) and great drinks, meant that naturally we ended up here almost every day (and night) during our stay. They even cooked up some Red Snapper for us that we caught on a fishing trip, and made us some sashimi and kinilaw out of it, which was to die for. Honestly, I feel like White Banana is my second home now (or, at least, I just wish it were XD).More

One of the best bars I've ever visited. Its beachfront location, open spaces, and native materials all contribute to such a laidback atmosphere that I didn't want to leave. Happy Hour meant double the number of their amazing cocktails for the price of one, superb...complement to their delicious finger food. Tip - visit when there's an acoustic guitar or saxophone player to experience ultimate relaxation.More

We came here twice on our trip to Siargao. First time was for breakfast and the food was great. The second time for sundowners on our way headed home. The second visit it took approximately 20/25 mins for our drinks to be served. The food...even came out (and was eaten) before the drinks. It’s in a good location, just don’t be in a rush if you come for sunset!More
