Island Roots on Main Street

Located within the Old Custom House in Road Town, Island Roots is a casual restaurant tapping into the laid-back vibe of the British Virgin Islands. In addition to being a great place to stop for lunch, Island Roots has a staff of skilled baristas so that you can get your caffeine fix as well.

Captain Mulligan’s

Captain Mulligan’s is a fun and friendly restaurant and sports bar, and even has a mini-golf course for kids. Despite its child-friendly atmosphere, Captain Mulligan’s welcomes people of all ages. If mini-golf isn’t your thing, then perhaps a tall glass of rum is. Be careful though; if you stay at the bar here too long, you may end up walking like a peg-legged buccaneer.

Capriccio di Mare

Capriccio di Mare is conveniently located in central Road Town, serving your favourite bolognese, frutti di mare, risotto and linguine. If you’re craving Mediterranean cuisine, be sure to book a table at this cosy spot.
