Description: Looking for a Local Hot Spot? Virgin Fire Grill has everything: a fabulous eclectic menu with New Orleans flair served by a dedicated staff and a gracious Mongoose Junction location. Outside, smaller parties can enjoy a breezy romantic veranda, intimate and comfortable. Inside, a historically inspired interior with cozy booths, the largest hi definition video screen on the island, a convivial mahogany bar with stained glass elements and Kimberly Boulon's portraitures. We're great with large parties, family friendly with ample free parking behind Mongoose Junction. Join us for half price appetizers daily from 4 to 6 pm, and for frequent live jazz or reggae. Check our website for the current menu, media and music schedules.

I've known the owner/chef for years; he is highly skilled, has a long history in STJ and knows the business. This is a new project for him, and will become a very popular eatery, very quickly. Located in attractive Mongoose Junction, the restaurant is in a beautiful space, with both indoor and outdoor seating. Mongoose is far enough away from the wharf that the diners are locals or visitors who know good food. We were a party of six (two of whom were long-time locals), and had one of the best meals ever. Highly recommend this. The Espresso martini was a real punctuation point at the end of the meal. The service was outstanding.

The food here was absolutely amazing. We ordered the salt block, which was one of the best foods we had on the entire island. The tuna was also delicious . The service was great and everyone was so nice.

Apparently re-opened with new management (in late 2013), so maybe that is why it is not yet top-rated. In one of several very nice 200-year-old brick buildings (Mongoose Junction)-- a renovated “arcade “with high-priced shopping, etc. Excellent service and food. We ate outside at one of about 8-10 small tables overlooking the street and harbor. Highly recommended. Try the excellent Himalayan Salt Brick--do it yourself--and other tapas-style choices. Eat it with a friend. Enjoy!

I was skeptical going in because it was empty but am SO glad we stayed. The service was as friendly as it gets on an already friendly island. We had the Himalayan Salt Brick app which was fun and Delish. Great cocktails. Nice, diverse, eclectic menu. You won't be disappointed.

this place is awesome. I love new and clean restaurants, and this one is exceptionally nice because of all the older, rotting looking restaurants you can end up in on an island. the food was delicious (deep friend artichoke hearts and ribs!), the service was wonderful, and the drink i had (rum punch) was fantastic. Thank you virgin fire!
