We always hit Fat Virgin when in North Sound as it's a nice respite back in Birds Creek. The menu has changed a bit recently but the food is still superb. I had the grilled fresh local snapper (awesome), and my wife had the BLT which is a unique version with Brie cheese and a basil mayo. She proclaimed it... More

Wonderful meal - Great food, everything cooked to order, casual with a "surprise". Colorful restaurant - local and authentic. Definitely a must have; burger with blue cheese and onions with balsamic,chicken roti and grouper. Dessert - warm chocolate cake and key lime cheesecake. Support local!!

low key is an understatement. At first glance Fat Virgin looks like a roadside stand with picnic tables and a counter. But make no mistake, this little restaurant will surprise you. Service is excellent. The tables are literally on the water - if you lean to far back on your bench you'll fall in the bay. And the food is... More

A gorgeous place and ok food but miserable staff who weren't interested in talking or engaging about the area that we were very enthusiastic in hearing about.

We sailed in to moor the night. Great little restaurant on the water. Sit on picnic tables and get to know some local folks. Food priced right. The Roti was great. Some fish a little over cooked but good value. Pretty quiet, have drinks but not a bar scene.

We visit Esther at the Fat Virgin cafe every time we come to Virgin Gorda and it never disappoints. Amazing laid back atmosphere, great food, fabulous home made fries which are a must and attentive staff. One of the best kept secrets in Virgin Gorda for sure.

We stopped at the Fat Virgin for drinks and apps. The staff was warm and friendly and the apps (including the home cut fries) were hot and fresh. If you have a boat, you should stop by.

This is a casual ambiance off of Biras Creek in North Sound. Good value for decent food served on outdoor picnic tables.

A trip to Fat Virgin is always a must. Ester's soups are very special. Everything is made from scratch her roti are to die for. We have tried everything on her menu, there is not a bad choice there

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.
