We sailed in to moor the night. Great little restaurant on the water. Sit on picnic tables and get to know some local folks. Food priced right. The Roti was great. Some fish a little over cooked but good value. Pretty quiet, have drinks but not a bar scene.

We visit Esther at the Fat Virgin cafe every time we come to Virgin Gorda and it never disappoints. Amazing laid back atmosphere, great food, fabulous home made fries which are a must and attentive staff. One of the best kept secrets in Virgin Gorda for sure.

We stopped at the Fat Virgin for drinks and apps. The staff was warm and friendly and the apps (including the home cut fries) were hot and fresh. If you have a boat, you should stop by.

This is a casual ambiance off of Biras Creek in North Sound. Good value for decent food served on outdoor picnic tables.

A trip to Fat Virgin is always a must. Ester's soups are very special. Everything is made from scratch her roti are to die for. We have tried everything on her menu, there is not a bad choice there

We have been to Virgin Gorda many times, and no vacation here is complete without at least one dinner at Fat Virgin Cafe! The food is outstanding, the atmosphere relaxed, cheerful and charming, and Esther is warm and gracious. Our favorite is Esther's vegetable roti. The veggies are cooked just right, the seasoning excellent, and the rotis are melt in... More

I wish I could put into words the experience we had at this place. The atmoshere is charming and the owner Esther makes THE BEST Chicken Roti I have ever had. I actually have not had bad chicken roti in the BVI but this one takes the cake. As our group was ordering another group came up with someone who... More

As we pulled up in our little boat, I didn't think this place was going to be that great. Was I ever wrong! The service was amazing. Our waitress, Esther was so warm and friendly, we would have stayed and hung out with her all day! She even took great care in one of us, who was nursing a hangover...... More

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.
