Good food, decent value - wonderful setting with beuatiful sunsets (getting there early!) - and watch for the chickens at dusk quite a surprise. Entertainment and specials on some nights...although the music was a bit loud for conversation.

Great way to end a day at the Baths! Beautiful views, overlooking the Channel Islands. Food was amazing, the kids portions were very generous and well prepared. $100 for a family of 5 with drinks. Choose a table near the eastern railing and be entertained by chickens flying up to roost in the trees for the night!

We returned to Mine Shaft just before sunset, sat at the west side of the dining area, and watched the most colorful sunset and views of Virgin Gorda and the islands. The ladies ordered the house rum drink, which was very good. We debated over the menu options but all eventually decided on the grouper, which was grilled and came with a tangy sauce that enhanced the flavor of the grilling; we all agreed that it was about the best ever. The fresh vegetables, fried plantains, and beans & rice, complimented the grouper very well. Then, Morris Mark arrived to perform for two hours non-stop, singing a mix of tunes spanning the decades; his voice is so sweet, and his beautiful guitar accompaniment added to his singing. We will be returning next Friday to hear him sing and have another great meal. Mine Shaft's convivial owner and staff are full of fun and energy.

We went to the Mine Shaft late in the evening. We had a group of friends and we were looking for dinner and drinks. The food was much better than I remember from the last time I was at the Mine Shaft. It was very good. The drinks were good, including their specialty house drink. I will definitely return on my next visit to Virgin Gorda.

My husband and I dined at the Mine Shaft Cafe' for dinner on our last night at Virgin Gorda. I ordered the grouper and it came with a fried plantain, seasoned rice and steamed veggies. The sauce on the grouper was SO amazing!! The service was very good and timely. The best part of the experience was watching the sunset! This would be a perfect place to eat and be sure to arrive by 5:30 or so to make sure you watch the sunset around 6 p.m. The food was SO delicious and the atmosphere was amazing!
