The restaurant at this luxury resort makes for a romantic night out. Set in a hilltop stone gazebo, Chef Jermaine George takes great pride in serving diners a four-course dinner of haute cuisine with Caribbean flair. The atmosphere is elegant and sophisticated, boasting one of the finest and most extensive wine lists of any British Virgin Island restaurant. The Grouper Spring Roll and Braised Lamb Shank are not to miss.
CocoMaya, Virgin Gorda
CocoMaya is British Virgin Island’s newest restaurant and cocktail lounge, fusing sleek elegance with island relaxation on a white sand beach. Sip haute cocktails by the sea in the open air bar and enjoy an exotic blend of Asian and Latin cuisines with innovative twists like Hoisin Duck Tacquitos and Fire & Ice ceviche.
Sugar Mill Hotel, Tortola
The restaurant at the Sugar Mill Hotel is one of the Caribbean’s finest. Owned by a pair of food writers, Sugar Mill consistently creates innovative cuisine with a menu that changes nightly (a feat for any British Virgin Island restaurant).

Select among West Indian treatments of imported duck and lamb or fresh local fish, conch, and lobster with a Pan-Asian flair.
The Dove Restaurant, Tortola
The Dove Restaurant Jazz and Wine Bar is situated in a charming 1912 gingerbread cottage on Main Street in Road Town.

Don’t miss a glass of bubbly during the daily Champagne Happy Hour from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Corsairs, Jost Van Dyke
If you’re in the mood for an unpretentious locale in the British Virgin Islands, then dinghy right on the beach in front of this restaurant and beach bar. After a relaxing day drinking rum on the beach, Corsairs is just the spot to dine casually on high quality cuisine. While this beach bar & restaurant doesn’t command the attention as its White Bay neighbors, it’s an insider’s favorite. Wash ashore and sip on a signature Wench Juice or Voodoo cocktail.
Giorgio’s Wine Restaurant, Virgin Gorda

Perfect for those evenings you’re craving some comforting Italian on the British Virgin Islands.
