Jamaican Grill Bermuda $, Jamaican/Caribbean
If you are looking for spicy Jamaican food in Bermuda or even other varieties of West Indian food in a casual atmosphere, Jamaican Grill is the place to go. The restaurant with its main branch in Hamilton City (a little outside city limits though), now has few other branches across the island.
This is a family run restaurant and good for casual meals. Unless you are looking for expensive stuff like lobsters, dishes here are quite inexpensive compared to other places in Bermuda. You will get the Jamaican national dish ackee and salt fish served with rice and peas.
There are many classics including the jerk and curry chicken, curried goat, oxtail stew, hot wings, rice and beans, dumplings, meat & veggie patties and more. There are other traditional Caribbean favorites as well including pineapple-glazed chicken, macaroni and cheese or roast beef in mushroom sauce etc. The portions are quite large and filling. They also make homemade cakes and cookies.
They don't serve hard drinks here. There are many types of fruit juices to choose from. Try out the Jamaican Ting, a grapefruit drink that tastes really nice. Other varieties include mango, carrot or ginger-flavored pineapple concoctions. They also serve ice tea.

Visitors' Reviews & Comments
Alexander Miles (December 2016)
Visited Bermuda 11/16 and stayed in the lovely Grotto Bay Resort, Baileys Bay. If anyone else is staying in the local area I strongly advise frequenting The Jamaican Grill up at Duck Puddle lane as not only was the food fantastic (especially the Ackee and salt fish breakfast!) and the prices more than reasonable but the family that own and work there were some of the friendliest warmest people I have ever met and I encourage you to give them your custom! When we got to Bermuda they had just been on the receiving end of a hurricane and although it damaged there restaurant it certainly hadn't dented there spirits!
