Best Roti in BVI! The food is to die for. She even stayed open for us and cooked us everything we wanted. Esther gave us lots of insider tips and things to do on the island. She is the long lost auntie you never want to leave. Mudslides are also to die for. -Jeff and Terri

We found this place by accident while sailing in the BVI's. It doesn't look like much from the water but when we sat down we were hooked! The cafe is casual with a relaxed vibe and the views are amazing! We enoyed Conch fritters and fish sandwiches which were quite delicious...and of couse,Carib beer to top it off. They have... More

We visited this restaurant by boat and trust me, it won't disappoint. You must try the conch fritters. Everything was delicious and the service was great. Esther is awesome - friendly and willing to accommodate. She tailored a meal for our 3 year old, an excellent treat and everyone was happy. It is truly a hidden gem.

One of my sons has a severe allergy and I had emailed the restaurant two weeks before our trip,. They remembered the email and were very protective in their preparation.It was... More

Our family has travelled in this area many times. It is always a bit of a effort to find vegetarian and vegan food while sailing in the BVI. We've never been here before, but we absolutely loved it. They are vegan/vegetarian friendly, with three items even on the menu. The owner and the staff were friendly and warm. If you're... More

The Fat Virgin was highly recommended to us but we were disappointed. The atmosphere was unique and fun. The service was pretty good except they forgot to put in our conch fritter order as an appetizer. .... then brought it just before dessert and didn't comp it. The food was so-so and the drinks were light. I'd go for the... More

I do apologize for your disappointment, and it was definitely a mistake on our part for charging you for the conch fritters which should have been comped. The menu at the Fat Virgin is a very reasonable priced simple one where the focus is on the introduction of Caribbean flavors and quality of product. We support our local farmers and... More

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.
