At The Rock Café (The Valley, 284/495-5482, 4 p.m.–midnight, $19–40) you can enjoy Caribbean and international cuisine at tables set amid boulders or inside the air-conditioned dining room. This is a popular stop for happy hour, and there is live music at the piano bar most nights, especially during the winter tourist season. House specialties include Sicilian-style swordfish and spaghetti with fresh Anegada lobster, and there is a kids’ menu.
Little Dix Bay Resort (284/495-5555) has two main restaurants. The Pavilion ($36–50), an open-air dining room with a highly pitched roof, serves elaborate breakfast, lunch, and dinner buffets featuring some of the freshest ingredients available in the BVI. The Monday night manager’s buffet is the best. You can also order from an à la carte menu. The Sugar Mill ($45–80) serves intimate, upscale dinners.
