Ascots Restaurant Bermuda $$$, Seafood
Located on a country lane at the outskirts of Hamilton City, Ascots is a part of the beautiful boutique hotel Royal Palms
. With surrounding trees, garden settings and fountains, the restaurant provides a great ambience. It also serves dinner at the covered terrace or at the front porch if the weather permits. Ascots is only few minutes walk from Front Street City Center or the Hotel Hamilton Princess.
Since Ascots is located at the end of a country lane within a residential neighborhood, it is far quieter place than the other restaurants on Front Street and ideal for a romantic dinner.
The restaurant is housed in a spacious colonial hotel building that was built in 1903. The antique porcelain cutlery and Queen Anne armchairs give you a feel of an English Country House. Ascots Bar Lounge has wide selection of drinks and wine.
You can sit back and relax on comfortable settees and plush arm chairs, or have your cocktail on the patio overlooking the garden with a stone fountain and Mediterranean statues.
The restaurant inside is modern and spacious with large windows and silk curtains. The interior is quite soothing having shades of green on the wall, contrasting quite well with the paintings by a local artist. At one side the restaurant overlooks the pool and on the other the patio and garden. A center high ceiling is covered with Leonardo Da Vinci sketches.

The chief Chef Edmund and his team partner regularly with local fisherman, farmers and suppliers to get the highest quality seasonal ingredients available in Hamilton City. The menu has a wide range. Here are some of our favorite dishes at the Ascots.

Pan Seared Mahi-Mahi served with fresh citrus mango and bananas chutney flamed with Apricot brandy, or
Grilled Yellow Tail Snapper Served with mussels and clams, or
Pan Sautéed Tiger Shrimps Onions, tomatoes, garlic and fresh parsley with a white wine sauce accompanied with a Catalan chicken chorizo rice paella, or
