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

Fat Virgin has been a favorite of mine since we started coming to Virgin Gorda. The roti is delish and there are tasty drinks and colorful water front tables to enjoy your meal from. There is now a bit of difficulty getting to the Fat Virgin for us land lubbers... The trail from Bitter End is now blocked off at... More

Very relaxed with good food. Out of the main stream so it is not as crowded as other spots in north sound. The staff is on island time so don't be in a hurry.

Diamond in the rough....Get the Roti-chicken!!! Absolutely delicious. Grouper sandwich was good! Great place to have lunch and a ice cold beer. The ladies working are very sweet. Don't expect frills....I would say Caribbean soul food! Must go

Stopped here on the rental boat and had lunch. Wanted a t shirt but the shop wasn't open. Tried the conch fritters and burger. View is great. Food was average. Not bad at all, not outstanding.

Since Biras Creek Resort closed, there's not a free ferry. But if you have your own dinghy or if you go to Gun Creek Harbor and get someone to give you a ride - you must go!! Best Key Lime pie I've had in the BVI. And you must have their conch fritters and chicken rotti. It is worth your... More

We have been to the Bitter End many times but finally took the dinghy trip over. Laid back fun place and everyone enjoyed their food.

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.
