Where to Eat in Bermuda: The Best Restaurants and Bars

November 21, 2017 Yuk Petri

Don’t be fooled by Bermuda’s small size; this 21-square-mile Atlantic island is big on history, personality and charm, from pink-sand beaches to historic forts. It’s known for aquatic adventures like shipwreck scuba diving, cliff jumping and deep-sea fishing. On land you’ll find an eclectic island culture of vibrant neighborhoods, brightly colored shorts and delicious fish chowder.

We had a nice dinner here, don't get me wrong. But as two people who love fine dining, and who have traveled the world around Michelin quality food, I can tell you that this restaurant did not meet the high standard the reviews seem to indicate. We were happy with our food, it was good - but not excellent. The service was good, but not great. And worse, we were left there stranded. Before we came, we asked whether taxis or buses were readily available. We were told no buses, but taxis certainly can be called and get there quickly. After dinner we requested a taxi, and they allegedly called one for us. We waited over 30 minutes and no taxi came. So we went back to them and asked whether they had called or could call again, but they said they already had called and we just had to wait - there was nothing else they could do. Our phones did not work there, so we couldn't call. And they did not let us use their phone. We waited over an hour - no taxi came. NO ONE cared. We had to WALK, in the DARK, through winding roads without a sidewalk, hoping to find a hotel - which we did (after 20 minutes). And at that hotel we were able to get a taxi. That experience was so dismissive, so crazy, so scary...I have no words. I cannot imagine an establishment, especially one that is not just a restaurant but a hotel as well, that would treat patrons like that. Needless to say, we will not return.

Fourways Inn

The Grande Dame of Bermuda's restaurants, famous for its celebrity guest list, renowned menus, signature dishes and organic Bermuda selections. Live piano music in its timeless dining room. Glamour, style and the most extensive wine-list on the island with fine wines sourced from Sothebys ready for discerning connoisseurs. And the most stupendous Sunday brunch on the island, with exotic dishes from near (local farm produce and local delicacies) and far (come and see!)

Very nice fine dining, but very expensive. Here, it's all about the show. The Maitre d' offers his elbow the the ladies to walk them down the stairs to their table, chateaubriand is carved tableside, and irish coffee is served with flaming Jameson poured back and forth between glasses, and the crepes suzette is of course flash fired.

L'Oriental

Reviewed By Big One R - Cheshire, United Kingdom

it made a welcome change from the mostly American fare on the island. However, the crispy duck was already diced and prepared, served with chopped lettuce ( in my opinion was more of a filler that added to the taste) I was further disappointed that the chicken in my Pad Thai was not great meat.
Over all not a bad meal, but certainly not the best.

Mad Hatters

Hidden gem of a little restaurant, serving contemporary, fresh unique and inspiring cuisine.

Reviewed By collinstw - New York City, New York

We had dinner at Mad Hatters on a rainy night in Hamilton. The restaurant is a bit off the beaten path, not particularly easy to find, but it is a unique and enjoyable spot for dinner. The food was very good, service was also good, and the hats on the wall make it fun and festive. The only negative was the "loud talker" who sat next to us with two of his business colleagues. He talked about himself for 1.5 hours solid, very loudly, and we did not particularly enjoy hearing everything he said -- but that was not the restaurant's fault. We had a nice laugh with the server about it as we left.
Definitely worth a visit.

Tom Moore's Tavern

Reviewed By sap32261 - New Jersey

I went to Tom Moore's Tavern with my husband for a special occasion. I thought it would be dressier as it is advertised as elegant dining. The dress ranged for dinner between jacket and tie, to wrinkled shirt and pants to no collar at all. A little disappointing. The appetizers ranged from $19 to $33 - I had the $19 Escargot that lacked any flavor. I feared getting any of the specials because entrees ranged up to $49 and no wonder what a special could cost as there was not mention when described. Presentation is really nice for everything served and some meals are prepared table side. A very nice touch. Wine list is expensive as well. All servers dress in Bermuda shorts. The restaurant has AC, but you really couldn't feel it. Would I go back? Probably not. The service is great, but really not worth the trip for the price and I can't say that anything I had was exceptional

This wonderful restaurant in the Tuckers Point Hotel is old time wood and table clothes with truly professional waiters, The entire Hotel will be renovated and closed from January thru March. The food was wonderful but expensive as was the wine list. The service was tops and attuned to our every need. Go while it is still there
