Brandywine Estate Restaurant

Tortola | (284) 495-2301

Located in the vicinity of Parham Town, Brandywine Estate Restaurant is a logical choice that's worth considering if you're going to be spending time seeing this part of the island. If you're curious, Road Town is approximately two and a half miles (approximately three and a half kilometers) to the west. Salty, fresh seafood and Italian flavors both share the spotlight at this popular fine dining establishment.

Head Chef Davide Pugilese mixes the menu up on a daily basis in order to work with the freshest ingredients possible every time. The vibe overall is Mediterranean, and you'll find his best dishes to be a calf-liver dish for which the recipe is a family secret and the roast duck.


Road Town, Tortola | (284) 494-2333

Located northeast of downtown Road Town, Charlie’s is located at Mooring-Mariner Inn, and is a good choice for guests thinking about staying near this town and nearby areas. Although some delight in the general selection of Italian cuisine, this place is especially proud of their desserts and pasta.

If Italy and the Caribbean had a baby, the outcome would be something akin to the food offerings at Charlie's: eclectic Italian fare that utilizes Caribbean seasonings and spices to create a new flavor that can't properly be described to someone who has never tasted it before.

Capriccio di Mare

Downtown Road Town, Tortola | (284) 494-5369

Located in downtown Road Town, Capriccio di Mare is a good option worth considering if you're going to spend time visiting this neighborhood or nearby. Not only is this restaurant famed for Italian delights and particularly pasta, but they're also quite the favorite for pizza.

The environment at Capriccio di Mare is a relaxed one, especially out on the shaded terrace, which offers a view of the dock. The interior offers an authentically Italian ambiance, with worn furnishings that lend themselves to the laid back atmosphere.
