The Restaurant at Leverick Bay – Five Course Gourmet Meal
The Restaurant at Leverick Bay is Owned and Operated by Chef Alex Yates. The Restaurant at Leverick Bay is a wonderfully unexpected surprise. When traveling the British Virgin Islands you expect to eat conch fritters and curry, but upon entering The Restaurant at Leverick Bay you are met with a wonderful menu of classically prepared dishes of French and Italian influence and some traditional local flavors. Along with an amazing menu you will find a wine room full of fabulous wines to pair with every dish.
