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.

Nice island atmosphere. The conch was not like Bahamian conch or Florida Keys conch. Must be a different species.

The best, unpretentious, small restaurant. Come by dinghy and sit by the water on colourful picnic tables. Cool, breezy, great view of Biras Creek. But what is even better is the fantastic local Carribean cuisine. The grilled fresh fish in the best in the BVI, served with a wondeful salad and fresh cut french fries, homemade. Great service.

We enjoyed this little casual restaurant. They had just brought in fresh wahoo that day so that is what my spouse and I had along Esthers scrumptious fries. Delicious food at a very simple, clean restaurant

This is our standby go-to place on Virgin Gorda for island cuisine, and everything is excellent. Esther Wheatley is the owner and also has a very nice gift and clothing shop just behind the restaurant. Our family loves the conch fritters, burgers, chicken and veggie roti, and fish dishes (snapper and flying fish are my favorites). The soups, stews, and... More

Fat Virgin Cafe for dinner was the standout meal for our March 2014 sailing trip. We had Goat Stew, Kingfish and West Indian BBQ Ribs with sides like christophenes with pumpkin, fungee and peas & rice. The Kingfish was beautifully sautéed with crisp skin. I asked about the fish options and Ratty, our server, said "Kingfish come off the boat... More
