Just a short walk up the beach from the Viva Wyndham Fortuna Beach, Bertha's is one of the best kept secrets around. I was lucky enough to see a couple of people mention it is some reviews, that piqued my interest and we decided to try it.
The Blue Dinghy may not look like a whole lot from the outside, but don't be fooled. Bertha doesn't have a menu, she just tells you what she has. Our choices were fish, chicken, or conch. I ordered the cracked conch, my wife had barbequed chicken. The sides that were available were salad or french fried (I took fries, the wife a salad). Were we surprised when Betha carried out a plate the size of a pizza pan (14-16 inches) with the food for the two of us. My first thought was, "there is no way we will finish this". My wife had two leg quarters of chicken and I had a mountain of conch. The conch was the best I had on the island. Perfectly seasoned and not the least bit tough, I managed to each every last bit. My wife said it was the best chicken she had ever had...ever! We cleaned our plate of everything except a little of the salad, with the last bite just as good as the first. We washed it all down with a few Kalik beer while watching the beautiful sea from the porch.
After our meal, we had a great time talking with Bertha about some of her other hobbies such a crochet. My wife is a quilter so the got along like a house on fire. Bertha even pointed out to us when a ray swam by in the shallow water. I don't think either of us wanted to leave but we knew it was time. Bertha asked us to sign her book of guests, which we did and then we walked back to the resort.
If you go to the Viva Wyndham, this is a place you must go! You will not regret it and the memory of it will be one of the fondest of your vacation.
