Wahoo's Bistro & Patio
$$, Seafood & International
Wahoo's Bistro is another feather on the cap for St. George. As the numbers of restaurants have been reducing at the eastern end of Bermuda, Wahoo's has added a welcome option, particularly when it comes to seafood specials. The restaurant is owned by two Bermudians Alfred Konrad & Geza who have decades of experience in the restaurant industry.
Alfred was the owner of Mulligan's restaurant located at the St. George Club for 10 years before it was closed down by the Government. He was also the winner of the VIP Excellence Award for best Chef in 2006 and have many local followers.
Geza on the other hand had been the owner of Beer Garden in Hamilton and later the owner of one of the best catering services in the island called The Flying Chef. The two Wahoo's on the restaurant logo represent the two owners. So what do the owners bring on the table?
Wahoo has actually replaced the earlier restaurant Cafe Gio
. It has taken over the same waterfront space overlooking St. George's Harbor where the earlier restaurant used to be located.
The new restaurant with a casual relaxed atmosphere offers a terrace, an open waterside patio (with roof cover) and inside dining for enjoying your food. They have decided on an open kitchen so that the guests can see the chef cooking and Alfred has a chance to interact with them.
Wahoo's Bistro Bermuda - Waterside Patio
As starters or soup, the Wahoo Chowder is probably one of the best to try. While they prepare the traditional fish chowders, application of Wahoo is quite novel and worth a try. It's more cream based and more like a New England clam chowder and includes potato and celery. While the menu is not extensive, there are various fish specials. A nice dish is Smoked Wahoo Pate served with fresh vegetables and bread. While it's not too heavy, it can serve as a light meal. Grilled Wahoo is heavier and served with potato fries.
Dinner specials also includes rockfish with fresh fruits and ginger, herb crusted lamb racks, grilled lamb chops, Tuscan style pork, chicken breast stuffed with prosciutto and sage, 16oz rib-eye steaks, shrimp harissa, pasta dishes and more. We particularly liked the lobster meal. You will get it during the lobster season only (i.e. starting September). Alfred really prepares them well. Dishes also include wahoo tacos and wahoo burgers. And then there is large selection of Italian ice creams. They have a nice selection of Australian wine. The service is friendly.
Wahoo's Bistro accepts credit cards. Reservations are recommended. Dress code smart casual.
In 2014, Wahoo's won the Best of Bermuda Award for Porch & Patio Dining.
