“The biggest problem in this island is...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2010

The biggest problem in this island is that the restaurants have completely forgotten the value or money. I find it quiete obscene to ask a couple 200 dollars in a restaurant where the service is totally inadequate and the food is only accetapble. The restaurants are the biggest problem in this island that aside of a beautiful see doesn't have anything else.

“So nice we visited twice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2010

We had no plans to repeat restaurants on our week long stay in VG, but Chez Bamboo changed our minds. We thought it was the best restaurant on VG, and we ate at Biras, Leverick, Top of the Baths, Bath & Turtle, Nail Bay and Little Dix Bay.
The menu had character, and lots of choices even for picky eaters. Everything we ate was perfectly cooked, from fish to soup to salad (fried goat cheese, yum) and pasta, and flavourful. Each dish has a unique spin on it, such as the 'grouper en papillote'. Grouper, surrounded by lobster, shrimp and scallops cooked in parchment. It was delish. Lobster Curry was fabulous. The staff was great, and while you're on 'ilon time' they were very attentive. I loved the kitchy decor, although I'd recommend not sitting right at the side of the road, as exhaust may get you. For the price, comparitive to others in the islands it was a great value. I'd say this is the best restaurant in VG by far, and not to toot a horn, I'm quite a foodie.

“excellent all around”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2010

this is a great spot to sit and chill and the sevice is wonderful. the second night we were there, lobster curry ( a most excellent dish) was not on the special menu. when we asked, there was an immediate "of course we can make that for you". and do not miss the cinnamon chocolate ice cream. Rose runs a fine establishment.

We had many a wonderful meal at Chez Bamboo during our last trip to Virgin Gorda as well as used their kitchen to prepare meals for dinner back at Adagio Villa - Rose the owner is priceless.

“Terrific find on a wonderful island!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2009

We loved Chez Bamboo!
The service was fantastic- from start to finish! Food was equally fantastic.
Love the tapas- creative dishes.
Our entrees were also excellent.
For dessert, they have a few but, for me, the Chocolate Moulten Cake is the only one! (ask for 2 spoons- it's big, and rich!) Its served warm, with vanilla ice cream, caramel in the center of the warm cake. Bottomline- and is worth a trip on its own!

Sitting outside under the lights is lovely.

(The prices are what should be expected from Virgin Gorda.)

We will dream of coming back- and definitely hope to be back!
