The four of us shared a combo platter that had red snapper, lobster, conch, chicken and rice. Loads of delicious food for four at $125 total. A nice break from the buffet, anly anshort walk down the... More

1. Best food in the world. 2. Bertha is a sweet heart. 3. Great place to experience the "Bohemian" lifestyle just 4 minutes from Viva Wyndham Fortuna Beach. 4. Just look at my photos!

I found out about Bertha's on tripadvisor and am very glad I did. What an awesome place. A hidden gem. It was the best conch and lobster me or my wife have ever had! Truly authentic Bahamian food you really can't get anywhere else. I live in the Florida Keys and the seafood here is not even close to Bertha's.... More

Yes, it's a shack as we would call it. It's not a luxury restaurant by no means but if you want fresh, home cooked seafood, this is the place to go! They've got a full bar and most of the days they have either lobster, conch or chicken on the menu. You have got to try this true Local place!

Went to Berthas blue dinghy for lobster, snapper and conch last night. The place is a real beat up beach bar, her house and restaurant. Other ratings are high but also with the warning "don't shy away from what the place looks like". They were right. When you pull, you think you're at someone's beat up beach shack. I believe...

When my wife, daughter and I stayed in the Bahamas it was our first experience with all-inclusive. It was so bad, it almost was our last. The food was terrible where we stayed and I wasn't sure I could take 4 days of it. Before we had left for this last minute trip (literally planned it the day before we... More

Terrific grilled conch and conch salad cooked perfectly. Couldn't of asked for a better atmosphere, scenery and delightful service. Two thumbs up for Bertha's Blue Dhingy Bahamian cooking. Make sure not to miss it if you are in the area.
