The Island Brasserie, Bermuda
Located within the Rosewood Tucker's Point Hotel & Spa
in Hamilton Parish, this is a gorgeous restaurant living up to the luxury standards of the hotel. As you come to the lobby of the hotel and walk towards The Island Brasserie
restaurant, the wide marbled floor, high ceilings, graceful corridor, they all build up to the glamorous ambience of the restaurant.
It's a spacious dining room that has an elaborate mural depicting ships and ports of the 1800s. The Executive Director of Rosewood Tucker's Point Hotel Edward Trippe is the son of Juan Trippe, the founder of Pan Am. And the mural, created by Gerard Henderson, had once hung in the offices of Pan Am in New York. The tables are spaced out and you have enough elbow rooms.
Around 105 persons can be seated here and there are over 20 waiters serving the guests. There is also an excellent English style bar attached to the restaurant. Overall we love the ambience here. While there is a nice view of the waters from the window-side tables, you can choose to dine alfresco on the terrace with a wonderful view of the Harrington Sound water area. The sunset view from here is exceptional.

The Swiss Chef Serge Bottelli had shared some unique ideas when the restaurant was opened in 2009 (it was then known as The Point). He said that there would be two types of menu - Sea Menu and Land Menu. He felt that visitors end up having the same types of food in Bermuda wherever they go. So he wanted to make some innovative dishes and experiment a new dish everyday if possible. He sources the ingredients locally and gets the chicken and lamb from the local Wadson's farm
The restaurant has an excellent selections of wine. There is a wonderful 3,000 bottle wine cellar.
In Soups and Salads some of the popular ones are Bermuda Fish Chowder, Bermuda Onion Soup, Castle Harbor Salad and JJ’s Kale Caesar. They have a couple of vegan options as well. In main courses, some of the great dishes that are prepared in traditional island style includes Jerk Pork Shoulder, Piri Piri Chicken Breast, Dry Rubbed Strip Steak, Flame Grilled with Jumbo Onion Rings, Lamb Roti, Beef and Mushroom Pie etc.
If you prefer seafood, try out some of these... Pan Seared Rockfish, Locally Caught Yellow Fin Tuna, Tiger Shrip Curry and accompany that with Island Peas and Rice. The menu also includes some comfor food such as chicken & cheese burgers, fish sandwich, fish & chips etc. In desserts they have ice creams, sorbet, soufflé, brulee etc in the menu.
