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.

When staying at Biras Creek we routinely eat lunches at Fat Virgin. This is a wonderful little café located right on the Biras Marina. The café is amazingly small for turning out such excellent dishes. Burgers, chicken, and hot dogs are cooked on a Weber grill right outside the door and the rest of the offerings are cooked in a tiny kitchen which is the only "indoor" part of this establishment.. The seating is a series of colorful picnic tables on the café patio and marina dock. Drinks are basic, but expertly mixed, and menu offerings are loving prepared by local chefs. We always order the chicken wings with tamarind curry dip ... absolutely delicious!

We had a gathering of family and friends to the Fat Virgin's Cafe this past week and thoroughly enjoyed our experience and our meal. A no frills kind of place - unless you consider the wonderful view of the North Sound harbor. Really good food with an island flair and excellent service. The chicken roti and the fish sandwich were both delicious. A solid recommend.

My brother and I went here during the low season. There were not very many people, and the sunset made it a perfect environment. The food was delicious, and the service was perfect.

Small quaint cafe that offers a delish West Indies Vegetarian Roti in a curried sauce with chutney ! Out of this world.

A group of four of us dinghied over from Saba Rock for lunch on July 10, 2014. It is tucked away in a quiet corner of North Sound, only two minutes ride away.

The service was the best we have had in the BVI. Very friendly & helpful. A bit like a cross between being at home & a restaurant. Not a touristy place. The decor was worth taking a camera for.

The menu had a great selection. One of those menus where EVERYTHING looks good. We had burger, snapper & tuna salad. Seems that everything here is done with care and attention. The tuna salad had fresh tuna. The fries were made from scratch, not from frozen product. Absolutely delicious & best fries in the BVI by far. Burgers were delicious. Snapper was excellent too. Burgers and snapper were grilled on the BBQ in front of us.

Prices were very reasonable.

We will go back again next time we are there in January for sure.
