I don't know BVI specifically, but assume that like other Caribbean islands, if the locals eat out it will mostly be "takeaway" (what we call takeout) rather than sit-down dinners - funky looking roadside stands. Or find out where the boatyard workers eat lunch - we got turned on to some fantastic roti hut in Trinidad that way.

Otherwise, I'd just provision breakfast and about 1/2 of lunches & dinners - load up on twice as many appetizers and munchies, and less full-on sit-down meals, as you think. You're right, you'll meet more locals, be more spontaneous ... and honest, you can't starve to death in a week.
