Walked past soggy dollar bar as it was manic - pleased we did as food here was first rate - chicken burger was tasty and well cooked and partners shrimp roti was packed full of shrimps - excellent value quick lunch! Not sure about the sign advertising magic mushrooms though?

Let's face it the venue is utterly stunning. A beautiful island bathed in sun, a fabulous beach with clear, warm water. Idyllic. There were a few cafe/ shacks to choose from and we decided on Gertrude's. There is a friendly easy going atmosphere made more so by the invitation to make your own drinks the most popular being a Pain... More

This is one of the beach shacks in the beautiful cove that you swim to. Nothing outstanding, but it's all about the friendly experience and the beautiful beach.

To call it a fish burger is a crime! It is the best fish sandwich I have ever had. A whole large piece of Mahi Mahi expertly seasoned on a fresh roll with lettuce and tomato. I had it several times while staying on Yost. The chicken roti was excellent as well. The make your own Pain Killers is an... More

We arrived into Gertrude's at the end of the day after spending the afternoon at Soggy Dollar. So the place was very quiet (Which isn't preferred but doesn't affect the rating). The staff were nice but seemed quite sleepy coming towards the end of the day so they weren't overly attentive but still, they were nice and I imagine the... More

Little Shack on White Bay on Jost Van Dyke. Pick the size of your drink and pour in as much rum as you like! Beach chairs for rent and one amazing beach and view.

Stopped here on a recent day sail to White Bay at Jost. We heard that they had a good chicken roti dish on their menu. We decided to order one for each of us. Had cold Presidente while our meals were being prepared. We were glad we stopped here after getting our meals. They were worth waiting for. They came... More

Ms. Gertrude, Olga & Zena were so easy to hang out with, within just a few minutes you will think you are in a place you have been in all your life. I spent so much time with them I felt like I was leaving my family behind. Good Lord willing I will be back again and again🌴🌴👍✌️
