Ate at Mine Shaft last week. The view from the outside deck will blow you away.

Make sure you get there at sunset.

The food is delicious and reasonably priced. Do not miss this restaurant!

We had a great meal here. This and Chez Bamboo were the best we had.

The view is fantastic. Make sure and go here for the sunset.

Great location to watch the sunset and it’s entertaining to watch all the local chickens roost in the trees just off the dining deck. The dining area is open air which was really nice in the evening. Dinner menu begins at 6:00pm. $2 per person taxi ride RT from Virgin Gorda Yacht Harbor. I’ll list what our group ate along with a rating from one to five and individual comments.
Ceasar Salad $10- Rated 5/5 – Excellent salad and it was shared by two as an appetizer.
Regular Garden Salad- $8 Rated 4/5 (they only had three choices of dressings, but it was a good size salad)
Ribs- $24 – Rated 4/5. Excellent Flavor but could have been a bit more tender.
Chicken Roti- $15 – Rated 4/5 – Great Flavor would have preffered more choices of sides to go with this meal.
Grouper - $22 – Rated 4/5. Good Flavor, slightly overcooked
Conch Stew - $24 – Rated 5/5. Excellent flavors, very tender cooked perfectly
Mahi Mahi- $22 – Rated 4/5. Great flavors, cooked well would have preferred less sauce.
All of these meals other then the Roti were served with fresh veggies that included carrots, zucchini, squash, which were cooked tender crisp and very good along with rice and peas (beans) which had a great flavor. Everyone felt the portions were generous.
Our waitress Mary was excellent in providing great service throughout our meal along with offering helpful tips and other great information. Total cost for 3 salads, 5 entrees, 3 beers, 1 mixed drink, and 2 sodas with 15% gratuity was $187.00
