Our group of 11 braved a taxi ride from Limerick Bay to Hog Heaven after reading reviews here and wanting to see for ourselves. We were blown away by the view! We arrived about 30 minutes before sunset and stayed a while after dark to enjoy the full range of views of Gorda Sound. We could even see the lights Anegada from here.
I had the ribs and really enjoyed them and all the fixin's I had, along with a fantastic strawberry banana smoothie. The food itself would earn the place at least 4 stars, but the combination of the food and the view blows it off the chart. This is a must-do for anyone who wants to see Gorda Sound from almost 1000 feet up and enjoy a great dinner.
If you add up the round trip taxi ride and the cost of the food, this is a pretty expensive dinner, but, as the kids say, you only live once!
Tip: If you come with a large group, be sure to have lots of cash, as they don't handle large group tickets very well if you're trying to pay separately.

The food at Hog Heaven is quite good, I really enjoyed the ribs and my wife's chicken was good as well. But you really go to HH for the view--it is breathtaking to look out across the Caribbean and see the many islands. Romantic, inspiring and a great place to enjoy a few drinks and watch the beauty of the Caribbean unfold. Its a must see on Virgin Gorda. It is out of the way, a taxi up and back to Spanish Town is 40-50, but it really is worth the ride and if you get a good cab driver (Shorn) he will narrate the history and geography of the region for you.

We visited Hog Heaven several times during our stay on Virgin Gorda. The views are breathtaking and the BBQ lovingly prepared. We tried a bit of everything and enjoyed all of it - and especially the side dishes of cole slaw and potato salad. We were there for sunset one day and loved the cool breeze. Bring something to layer as it actually gets a little chilly late in the day - which is wonderful after a day in the sun.

We sailed on a catamaran this past June and two of the people knew about this place. So all ten of us piled into a van and climbed the mountain. Breathtaking views and we sat up there and had some lovely rum drinks and watched the comings and goings of Richard Branson take his dinghy into Bitter End and then back and all the building they are doing on Mosquito Island which he also owns. Unreal beautiful views from this place called Hog Heaven.
