My first experience with the "honor" bar was awesome! Yeah it might have been a little steep on price but the drinks were great and the atmosphere was second to none. Met some great people where we proceeded to sit on the beach out front and drink and talk and just really soaked in everything that is Jost. Loved it... More

We had a group of 12 people visit this gem on February 14, 2014. The staff was friendly, food was very tasty, and drinks were delicious. When ordering a Pain Killer, the friendly bartender handed us a glass, a bottle of mix and put the gallon of Rum right on the bar for us to mix our own. How much... More

On one side of White Bay, you have Ivan's. On the other side, you have what I'll just call "the strip", a collection of beach bars/restaurants, all with their own redeeming qualities. Gertrudes serves up great food (burgers) and the staff is just as delightful as they can be. The roti is good, too, and, of course, the drinks are... More

While sailing through the BVI's last May, 2013, I decided I wanted to try Roti, a hearty thick stew wrapped in masa, a West Indian comfort food. I've seen it many times on various travel/food shows and decided this was my chance to find what I thought was the best during my trip. Throughout my 10 days sailing through the... More

...had the greatest cheeseburger I've ever eaten at Gertrude's. Staff and view are outstanding. Smiles abound and its just steps to you lounge chair on the beach which provides a great nap afterward.

Stopped in at Gertrudes while on excursion from Cruise. Ordered a rum punch and bartender gave me a glass with ice then put jugs of various rums and some punch mix on bar and said "make it how you like it". Loved it! Stayed for a while mixing drinks anyway we wanted and then settled up and staggered out. May... More

I don't know what it is they do differently than the other bars on the island but Gertrude's painkiller is my favorite! Mary is a fabulous host and if you have a few too many grab a ride back to your villa with Gertrude's brother Claude! (He lives right next door!!)

Olga makes the BEST homemade mango chutney around! I crave it for weeks prior to visiting. Enjoy it with the chicken roti for lunch. The beer is cold and reasonably priced, the mixed drinks are poured by you so as strong as you desire, and the service is fantastic. Olga remembers me and my husband year after year. There is...

Cannot say enough great things about the folks at Gertrudes. Glenn was filling in for his Mother and Mary was cooking up some wonderful food. We could not have felt more welcome and at home. My wife and I instantly became good friends with Glenn. Be careful ... It is self pour. When you ask Glenn what you want and... More
