Top Restaurants & Bars in St. George Bermuda
What to expect
St. George is a quaint historic town of Bermuda bearing the history and memories that date back to 17th century. Dining at St. George gives you that special feel as you are away from the tourist concentrated areas like Hamilton and Dockyard. St. George in a laid-back peaceful place which is steeped with history and heritage, and offers a relaxed friendly ambience for wining and dining.
These days only few small ships dock at St. George mainly because of water getting shallow. And therefore St. George doesn't get much cruise ship tourists other than some who care to come all the way from dockyard and some from Hamilton. As a result, several restaurants and bars that were once very popular with both locals and tourists, have closed down due to lack of demand. Having said that some new restaurants have also come up with specific dining themes to attract visitors and locals. Some harbor-side restaurants with lovely water views offer exceptional dining experience.
So if you visit St. George for a tour of the historic town and its many forts and lovely beaches, then this is a perfect place to plan your lunch. If you are staying in a hotel here or at nearby parishes, St. George's would offer nice options to wine and dine. Below are all the restaurants, cafes, bars, pubs etc by category.
