Description: At Virgin Cafe's simple "Caribbean fusion" menu offers the best casual waterside dining in the BVI. Our delectable home style dishes include tender guava glazed baby back ribs, West Indian boneless chicken roti, grilled wahoo fish, gourmet sandwiches, fritters and homemade soups. We always use the best quality ingredients, including locally grown produce, freshly caught fish and Angus-grade beef. Homemade sauces and dressings such as sun-dried tomato aioli, lemon-poppy seed salad dressing, and mango chutney are house specialties. Gourmet magazine loves our Fat Virgin Hot Sauce. 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 long as you're ready to slow down the pace and savor our culinary delights, it doesn't matter if you come in your high heels or your bare feet.

This wonderful little restaurant makes wonderful food. The Chicken Roti is the best we have ever tasted. There is also a nice little gift-shop behind it.

The menu is authentic and the setting beautifully casual. The drinks are refreshing, all the "real deal" and the genuine friendliness from the staff second to none .............just catch... More

After a long day of fun in the sun we pulled our dinghy right up, literally 2 steps from the tables. Our crew of 7 each ordered something different and the food was so good we didn't want to share. Everything from the salads right down to the french fries. Cant wait to go back in May.

Lovely little restaurant bar right on the water. The food was excellent and the service was right on the money. Our server was Rati - he was a great personality, good fun and efficient.

We too were among the great group of 39 people who gathered at this quaint waterfront restaurant. Esther and her staff (along with a little help from her friends) served up another memorable Thanksgiving dinner! As always, thanks for sharing wonderful food and drink with friends from far and near!

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
