When in the North Sound, don't miss out on the Fat Virgin Cafe. They serve up delicious food for lunch and dinner in a laid back atmosphere. Everything we've tried here has been delicious. The ribs are divine; the conch fritters are the best I've eaten; the roti is great; the wings with the tamarind sauce are memorable! Local food... More

It's not easy to get to, but if you're in the North Sound area and have a chance I highly recommend you stop by the Fat Virgin's Cafe and have some of their delicious food and tasty drinks. We love jumping in a dinghy from BEYC and cruising on over for some afternoon drinks and appetizers. The folks working are... More

The service was a bit slow the night we ate there but was made up for by the lovely atmosphere and good food. Also very good value for money in an area where the prices are very high.

We always hit Fat Virgin when in North Sound as it's a nice respite back in Birds Creek. The menu has changed a bit recently but the food is still superb. I had the grilled fresh local snapper (awesome), and my wife had the BLT which is a unique version with Brie cheese and a basil mayo. She proclaimed it... More

Wonderful meal - Great food, everything cooked to order, casual with a "surprise". Colorful restaurant - local and authentic. Definitely a must have; burger with blue cheese and onions with balsamic,chicken roti and grouper. Dessert - warm chocolate cake and key lime cheesecake. Support local!!

low key is an understatement. At first glance Fat Virgin looks like a roadside stand with picnic tables and a counter. But make no mistake, this little restaurant will surprise you. Service is excellent. The tables are literally on the water - if you lean to far back on your bench you'll fall in the bay. And the food is... 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.
