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.

“Best Casual Restaurant on VG”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

Great food, friendly waitstaff, and amazing atmosphere all combine to make this a truly fantastic place. The Chicken Roti are the best in the BVI and I continue to badger the owner for their homemade salad dressing recipe, alas, to no avail.... I would easily recommend this restaurant to anyone.

“Awesome food, great people”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

we loved it here, it was easily our favorite spot to eat on island. We could have had the chick roti every single night! The BLT was really good too. All of the staff we extremely friendly and helpful. We got hooked on the ring game!

“Dockside, boating casual, great food”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

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!

“Authentically Good”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

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.
