So having sank a few painkillers in Soggy, we headed over to Gertrude's and am very glad we did. The Rotis were incredibly tasty and full of flavour. You have a 'pour your own' bar policy and the bushwhackers are simply delicious and pack one hell of a punch! We were a group of 30+ and all moored up in... More

We were ultimately thrilled that the Soggy Dollar Bar was such a madhouse, if it wasn't we wouldn't have found Gertrude. The view of White Bay is just as beautiful, the sand just as white, and the Crib just as cold. So if you're looking for good food why limit yourself to bar bites and have a great meal. The... More

I've searched the island for the best bushwackers as that's my drink of choice when visiting the Caribbean, and Gertrudes makes the BEST ones! No need to go elsewhere. Also, ask for a BBC which is supposedly a local drink. It's a frozen drink that tastes like a banana smoothie, soooo good too! It's right next to Soggy Dollar with... More

The title says it all. That's a big plus right there! Rather than wait in the long line at Soggy Dollar, we went to Gertrude's and enjoyed the drinks. Not least because she let me mix my gin-and-tonic myself! Friendly staff, too. I'd recommend it.

Most bars on the island have spotty hours in the off season, but you can count on Gertrude and Mary the cook to take care of you. Even if you come in at closing time, Mary will insist she will cook for you! The painkillers are creamier than Soggy Dollar, and it's a pour your own bar. Gertrude gives you... More

This is a classic beach bar! And in this reviewer's opinion...the best option for food on this beach. Soggy Dollar is excellent for getting tons of drinks and partying. One Love also has excellent food; however, it was closed when we were there (during off-season). The shrimp roti was amazing and probably the best lunch we had on our sail... More

We started off at the Soggy Dollar and had read such great reviews about Gertrude's that we decided to go there next. It was the next business on the beach. My husband went out kayaking so I grabbed a chair facing the ocean to enjoy the gorgeous view! I asked Mary, the waitress for a rum punch. I had never... More

We had lunch here last week, nine family members. The food was fantastic. The Roti was one of the best I have had anywhere! Really, the quality of the food and the smiling service far exceeded what we expected! If you are on jost sailing, go here for lunch!

Visited for Lunch one day (burgers and very good) and dinner another night. Wife had Garlic & lime Shrimp and I had ribs. Both were very good. Service was great and honor bar is cool. Spent a little time visiting with Gertude and that is always a pleasure.

Just a quick word to say that Gertrude's burgers are great! I'm pretty sure they are the equivalent of a Bubba Burger but combine that with the views, the beers and the delicious potato salad and you're in heaven. I hear that the chicken roti is amazing there too - I guess we'll have to go back and try it!
