Budget

  • Roti Palace, Main Street in Road Town, offers roti (Indian flat bread) wrapped around various curries from vegetable to goat.
  • Capriccio's, on the Waterfront in Road Town. A proper Italian cafe with pizzas and daily pasta specials. Arguably the best food on the island.
  • The Road Town Bakery, Main Street offers sandwiches and really fantastic pastries. There are only a couple of tables outside here so its primarily take-away.
  • Serendipity Bookshop Cafe, in an old West Indian house on Main Street. Offers espresso, paninis, wraps and has internet access.
  • Indigo Moods, near the Roundabout. Offers vegan fare - tofu in different ways served plated or in a roti.

Mid-range

In Road Town and its environs, Nexus, Village Cay Marina, the Pub, and Le Cabanon have good but unremarkable food at mid-range prices. Le Cabanon and Village Cay Marina are more popular as loud and fun bars.

Splurge

If $200 for two for a meal with wine is what you are looking for, then try these places.

  • Dove
  • 18 Abbot Lane

Drink

  • Le Cabanon, casually known as "The Cab." An excellent bar with a great crowd in the heart of Road Town, the Cab has great, friendly bartenders, and a clientele composed mostly of ex-pat workers and tourists. Revelry here is par for the course from Thursday to Saturday night.
  • The Royal BVI Yacht Club, just west of town. Too bad Javier Fletcher and Phil Medeiros don't jam out that sweet sweet music at sushi night anymore. This is mostly frequented by English ex-pats and hosts races and the local rugby club.

Splurge

  • Peter Island Resort, 1-800-346-4451, Fax: 1-770-476-4979, [1]. The Peter Island Resort is a self-contained resort set on an 1800-acre private island in the British Virgin Islands with 5 breathtaking beaches.
