You can relax on our front deck with a drink or a 3-course meal. Bring the whole family or make it a special occasion for two.

As part of a seven-day training sail, we moored for lunch in North Sound and dinghied to Fat Virgin's Cafe. What a treat! From the fresh, brightly painted tables and seats, to the excellent food, to the gracious service, Fat Virgin's Cafe was great. Their home-made peri-peri is legitimately spicy, turning coleslaw from average into an excellent culinary experience. Ham... More

You need to take a free boat ride or your own boat to get over to get to the Fat Virgin Cafe, but it is well worth the journey! Wonderful waterfront atmosphere with friendly service, good menu options, tasty food, and fun games to play while you hang out. We loved the setting and wished we had time to go... More

We had lunch here! We took a boston whaler from BEYC over. We talked to Esther for probably 30 minutes. It's almost like you can taste her love in the food. The ribs were so tender, and the drinks were fresh! If you want a casual, low key, home cooked meal, stop at Fat Virgin! FYI, you need a boat... More

We did a Virgin Island "Island Hopping" trip one day and Fat Virgin's was the spot for lunch. It was a simple meal but oh so very tasty. The wife and I both had fresh grilled fish. The service was excellent. The views were great.
