A little quiet, but we liked it...

On a bareboat trip to BVIs we wound up in Virgin Gorda for a few days due to weather and were looking for things to do. A short dinghy ride from Bitter End Yacht Club and we wound up at the Fat Virgin. Good food, good service, very reasonable prices. We would go again in a heartbeat!

This was a nice place to go for lunch. We both had hamburgers and they were prepared to our liking. We went by boat, and were able to sit and feel the wind. They do have limited seating. It was not a big deal for us since we were a party of 2, but if you have a larger party... More

You can get a ferry to this restaurant from most resorts, just ask at your reception. Fun food to share with a group of friends, you sit outdoors on long tables, could be a wait if they are busy but just get a few more beers in. Local dishes as well as international favourites.

Loved the curried vegetable Roti...Has come to be one of my island faves. Can't beat the beautiful view since you are right on the water, and it's not crowded at all. Also had the split pea fritters, which were nice. It's always a plus to find tasty vegetarian options!

The first time I went here in 2013 i ordered the Chicken Cesar Salad. It was AMAZING! after begging for the recipe (with out any luck) I finally made my way back down and the food was just how I remembered it, the staff was amazing, and the whole place was just relaxing. This is one of my favorite stops... More

This restaurant is in North Sound of Virgin Gorda in the BVI. We visited this restaurant and island while on a week-long sail there. Accessible only by boat (be sure to learn where it is before dark), the food and service told us we did the correct thing to venture there. Food was excellent, atmosphere relaxed and, of course, by... More

I went here because I needed to lunch after hiking Biras Creek trails (Guy's trail is awesome!). I've read the rewiews on Fat Virgin Café before going. What a deception... I first entered the cafe and said "hello". The 2 ladies almost didn't replied to me... I then ordered a beer and asked for the menu. The staff lady didn't... More

This is just a little place that we came across while cruising around the island in our jeep. The burger was one of the best! Loved it so much I had to buy a beer coozie:)

We ventured across the harbor on recommendation for lunch. Tasty burgers, cool drinks and picnic bench view of the super yachts. Must see if you're in the area.
