My husband and I had a lovely meal at the Fat Virgin. We have never been disappointed with the food, company or atmosphere. Ester, the owner is a wonderful, happy lady who always has time to talk. A must stop in Virgin Sound.

Fat Virgin is a great seaside bar in Virgin Gorda. They have the best fries in the islands. Great when you're looking for a salty snack with your happy hour!

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.
