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.

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.

Great food, friendly waitstaff, and amazing atmosphere all combine to make this a truly fantastic place. The Chicken Roti are the best in the BVI and I continue to badger the owner for their homemade salad dressing recipe, alas, to no avail.... I would easily recommend this restaurant to anyone.

When staying at Biras Creek we routinely eat lunches at Fat Virgin. This is a wonderful little café located right on the Biras Marina. The café is amazingly small for turning out such excellent dishes. Burgers, chicken, and hot dogs are cooked on a Weber grill right outside the door and the rest of the offerings are cooked in a...

We had a gathering of family and friends to the Fat Virgin's Cafe this past week and thoroughly enjoyed our experience and our meal. A no frills kind of place - unless you consider the wonderful view of the North Sound harbor. Really good food with an island flair and excellent service. The chicken roti and the fish sandwich were... More

My brother and I went here during the low season. There were not very many people, and the sunset made it a perfect environment. The food was delicious, and the service was perfect.

Small quaint cafe that offers a delish West Indies Vegetarian Roti in a curried sauce with chutney ! Out of this world.

A group of four of us dinghied over from Saba Rock for lunch on July 10, 2014. It is tucked away in a quiet corner of North Sound, only two minutes ride away. The service was the best we have had in the BVI. Very friendly & helpful. A bit like a cross between being at home & a restaurant.... More

We loved it so much we came back a second time. Would've come more if we didn't have to go home! Although the free ferry boat may be an inconvenience to some, we had great experiences both times. The chicken roti is what we loved. But I also thoroughly enjoyed the pumpkin soup, the fritters, the chocolate cake, and the... More
