We visited here for dinner and wasn't pleased at all. First off there are 2 young females as waitress with no customer service skills, we sat there for a while before one of them came by to take our order, on top of that about 20 mins after the other one bought out the food. We then felt kind of... More

We arrived there at 5:30 one evening and wanted to order dinner and watch the sunset but were informed the chef wasn't in! We waited for about 20 minutes and he never showed up so we went elsewhere. I have to say the Rochelle was very gracious about the situation and wanted to help but her hands were tied. Later... More

From the time we got there, it took 30 minutes to get our drinks, 1.5 hours to get our appetizers, and 2 hours for the waitress to come around to take our dinner order. When she did, we got up and left. Problem was, they had staff in the bar area, doing nothing, while the one waitress in the dinning... More

Good view, but run down and very tacky. Good calamari, but not worth the effort. Drinks were good, but expensive. I would pass on my next visit for sure. Staff seemed preoccupied and rushed.

We had dinner last night as a family, first "official" night on the island. We've had dinner here in the past (about 7yrs ago when we were last here) and returned for the great food. Rushell was our server and she was the best! Attentive, friendly and joked around with us most of the evening. The bartender (wish I had... More

What a wonderful restaurant this is. We visited the Mine Shaft Café for dinner one night and had a wonderful time. This was our first actual dinner on Virgin Gorda and was very pleasantly surprised. As soon as we entered, we were greeted by not only friendly staff but very friendly local patrons as well, everyone greeted us with a
