Great Restaurants In Bermuda
There are also great Indian, Thai and Continental restaurants and the ones serving Bermudian Cuisine.
Out of the local Bermudian food, some of our great favorites include the fish chowder, wahoo steaks, shark hash, mussel pie, Hoppin' John (black eyed peas and rice), spiny Bermuda lobsters and so on.
If you like fish meals, the seafood, especially Bermuda rockfish is quite excellent. However you need to ask and ensure that the local fishers have caught those on the same day and therefore are fresh.
A lot of frozen fish and almost always meat which is imported, are kept in cold storage by many Bermuda restaurants. In general, we have found that dining in Bermuda is more expensive than in the U.S or Canada. And you really need to know the right restaurants to get innovative gourmet food. Let me also forewarn you that all restaurants in Bermuda are not as great as they might claim to be. But some are excellent.
Many of the restaurants and pubs in Bermuda tend to be a little formal. Some of them expect men to wear jackets in the evening while women in general can be in smart casuals. It’s always a good idea to ask for the dress code at the time of making reservations.
Below are the restaurants in Bermuda that are our personal favorites. We believe that they stand out from the rest in terms of quality, ambience and service. If you are specifically looking for ones that are cheap & great, then check out Top Cheap Restaurants in Bermuda
