Mine Shaft Cafe, Virgin Gorda

mineshaft.JPGThe Mine Shaft Café on Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin Islands offers beautiful sunset views while you dine out on their elevated deck with very good food, including above average BBQ and jerk chicken wraps with homemade potato salad and curly fries. Drinks are good too, including a not too sweet Rum Punch. Overall, a good value.

What a spectacle. The hostess tells us they are wild and don't have a man made place to stay, so they roost up in the tree for the night to stay safe from predators. What must that place sound like at 5 AM?

Only a short distance from the Copper Mine Ruins on Virgin Gorda on Coppermine Road, The Mine Shaft offers a casual atmosphere, good food, lots of laughs from Jinz and all out the most beautiful 360 degree view of an island sunset i had never seen anywhere. The continental style menu is simple, featuring grilled fish, chicken, steaks and baby back ribs, salads and Tuesday Night Caribbean BBQ.
