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.

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.

It was high season and everywhere was full. Thanks to TripAdvisor (and phone GPS!) we found the Fat Virgin. We had pretty lousy service at every restaurant so far on the holiday, and it had to be expected since everywhere was so busy. These guys were no different. The food was slow, but we didn't mind because our server was... More

The fat virgin was amazing. I recommend it for anyone that likes a great view, great food, and great people. It's not the easiest to get to, but it is worth it. 100%

My wife and I have been cruising the islands and trying chicken roti at each stop. We both agree that Fat Virgin has the best roti of all the islands. Tender and juicy with just the right amount of spice. And they serve it with a small side salad with a homemade dill dressing that's outstanding! We bring all of... More

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.

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.
