By way of a recommendation from a hotel staffer, we were taxied to Bertie's Creole Cuisine. The restaurant is in the Coxen Hole section of town, but there is no address that we were able to discover so you will have to rely on your driver to know about and find this place.
Bertie's is an open air, decidedly down scale sort of place that probably won't appeal to everyone. If you are like me, however, and seek out the hidden-away places that are mostly known to locals, Bertie's will delight you. Plain tables, almost no decoration, and the best creole cooking we had anywhere on the island. I ordered the lobster, which arrived with some sauteed plantains and rice and beans. This dinner, which was three succulent lobster tails, set me back US$18. My dinner companions had grilled grouper and coconut shrimp, all cheaper than my dinner.
The proprietor shared some home-made cashew wine with us, for which we were not charged. It was his treat.
We returned to our up-scale resort happy and stuffed. The whole bill, including several rounds of beer and bottled water, came to less than US$100 for the four of us.
