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.

Good local food - but not what we expected

My husband and I were referred to this location by a local bar tender. We thought they had some local fish, but that was not to be. We did try the beef ROTI - try it - it's a local dish that is quite tasty and very filling. The atmosphere is picnic table seating with a lovely view of the... read more

A waterfront cafe which has the Carribean atmosphere one seeks when in the BVI. If you are lucky you will be served by the effervescent Sami, a delightful person. And if you are really really lucky the day's selections will include Stewgoat. It is fabulous! Best I've ever had and the one to try if you've never eaten goat meat.... More

First off, we went here because all the locals said this was a great place to eat. We were a little disappointed in the selection of food on the menu. I ended up with a cheeseburger and my wife had the Roti which were both good but again not what we actually expected. We understood that the served local food... More

I recently visited this cafe whilst sailing in the BVI. we arrived at the cafe in a small boat and was welcomed to the cafe by a friendly waiter. The waiter took our order and drinks order informing us that the food was freshly cooked so would take a while to be served. This was not a problem as we... More

Staying at Biras Creek Resort, this made a great change for a relaxed light lunch and or a "Carib" beer with lime or a "painkiller" in the early evening. Often busy with passing dinghy boats and obviously lots of local support, no doubt well deserved. Good value compared to other bars in area. Great atmosphere and friendly service. Burgers and...

We where given a recommendation to go Fat Virgin Cafe. As the ferry boat went past The Bitter End and Briars Creek and the other passengers had reservations to eat there, we felt maybe we should cancel and go there. On the boat also was one of the waitresses for the cafe and she encouraged us to keep the our... More

We were staying at Biras Creek & this little restaurant is just a few minutes walk away (or about a minute on a bike). Very casual, nice selection of food which was always well cooked. A nice place to while away a relaxing lunch with a drink or two. We had lunch there quite a few times & always enjoyed... More

Picturesque little waterfront bistro,. Good food, good service in a fun, casual environment. Ratti, the server and bartender is great! Friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. A good alternative to the more formal restaurant at Biras Creek.

Wandered over to the Fat Virgin on our first day of holiday at Biras Creek and enjoyed the laid back ambiance, fresh well cooked food and great cocktails so much I think we ate their most lunchtimes. It was a good contrast to Biras. Yes sometimes you may have to wait a few minutes sometimes but its just so peaceful... More

The restaurant was very clean and inviting. Food was very good and fresh. I would not hesitate to eat there again. Not fine dining but a great little treat.
