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

Best Roti in BVI! The food is to die for. She even stayed open for us and cooked us everything we wanted. Esther gave us lots of insider tips and things to do on the island. She is the long lost auntie you never want to leave. Mudslides are also to die for. -Jeff and Terri

We visited this restaurant by boat and trust me, it won't disappoint. You must try the conch fritters. Everything was delicious and the service was great. Esther is awesome - friendly and willing to accommodate. She tailored a meal for our 3 year old, an excellent treat and everyone was happy. It is truly a hidden gem.

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.
