Recently did a bareboat charter starting in Tortola. We spent the first night in Road Town and had dinner at The Dove on the recommendation of a former charter boat captain I know. Not only was it an excellent dinner, it was probably the best dinner I have had anywhere in a very long time. I won't even compare it to the other restaurants we went to in Anegada, Jost, Norman or Cooper Islands...Just go to the Dove and cook on the boat if you are chartering in the BVI's. Enjoy

Often when you go to the Caribbean, you don't go for the food, but that's not the case with the Dove. Out of the 3 nights we spent in Road Town, we ate there twice, and would have made a trifecta out of it except they aren't open on Sundays. We loved everything we had to eat there and the first night we dined, it was the first evening they were open after slack season and service was spot on. The second night, they were training some new wait staff and we sort of fell through the cracks, but the proprietor was completely apologetic and worked hard to right the wrong which we appreciated and won us over even more. The Dove was definitely some of the highlights of the food we had while visiting the BVIs. De-lish!

My wife and I and another couple ate at the Dove while on a bareboat sailing trip to the BVI on October 28, 2011. We choose the Dove because the reviews we read on TripAdvisor and in other travel publications. We were not disappointed!
We have eaten at many places in the BVI that were more expensive than the Dove and none are as good. I would not consider myself a food critic, but we have eaten at some very nice restaurants over the years and this was one of my top 5 dining experiences of all time.
You can tell the owners are intimately involved in the business and enjoy what they do. Not only was the food well prepared, creative and artistically presented but the staff was very attentive and genuinely friendly. I highly recommend if you ever have the opportunity.

An oasis on Tortola of great food and service! Not for those looking for a "Caribbean" experience but if you want fabulous food, an amazing wine cellar and smiling, knowledgeable service then you will love it.

Definitely the best place to dine in road town the wonderful staff at the dove make such an effort to make sure you are comfortable and not too fussed over. Amazing food great wines and a lovely pre dinner under the mango tree area to sit and sip a glass of champagne! Just perfect.
