Fine Dining: Marcus'
With a celebrity chef, this hotel restaurant serves Marcus Samuelsson’s signature dishes and some staple Bermudian favourites.
The fish chowder bites served with Gosling’s Black Seal Rum aioli are not to be missed. You can also sample the spices that grow along the island’s Railway Trail on the famous jerk chicken.
Inside the vibrant Hamilton Princess & Beach Club, the former ballroom was renovated with a fresh island vibe. Highlighting the views of Hamilton Harbour and the Atlantic Ocean through large arched windows, a central bar ensures unobstructed views and open space to enjoy the global-inspired menu.
The ambience is lively, especially on Sunday during the popular Champagne Brunch.
Spontaneous Seafood: Tempest Bistro
Before deciding on your meal at the harborside Tempest Bistro, wait to hear the daily specials. The food is inventive and features whatever fresh seafood might be available that day, so you’ll never know what culinary delights you might encounter.
However, don’t count out the daily burger, which is often topped with decadent additions like brie and onion jam.
Located just a leisurely stroll from King's Square, the intimate Tempest Bistro has a secluded entrance, along with a rustic interior that adds to the restaurant's old-fashioned allure.
Desserts are also part of the temptation, including a substantial banana bread pudding complete with ice cream. Although the restaurant doesn’t offer outdoor dining, the floor-to-ceiling windows in this former carriage house provide great views of St. George’s Harbour.
Tasty Takeout: Seaside Grill
When you think of Bermudian cuisine, the fish sandwich comes to mind. Piles of fresh, crispy fish between hefty homemade bread, spread with tartar sauce. It’s not only appetizing but it’s also one of the island’s most Instagram-worthy meals.
Seaside Grill is a simple take-out stand situated just off the road on the North Shore. Don’t be fooled by its modest exterior. It crafts one of the best fish sandwiches on the island. It also offers the perfect backdrop for the sandwich’s close-up.
Try one made from either mahi mahi or wahoo on raisin bread. Don’t forget a dash of hot sauce to complement the flavours. If you’re feeling extra hungry, grab a side of Bermuda-style peas and rice.
Beachfront Bite: Mickeys
With its main dining room located on an open-air deck on Elbow Beach, Mickey’s boasts beautiful beachfront views while you enjoy the perfect combination of Mediterranean and island cuisine.
This location is loved by locals and visitors alike for its unique location, quirky menu and friendliness. What says Bermuda more than the calm waves washing back and forth on the Bermuda sand while you tuck into a Rum Swizzle?
It’s one of the only Bermuda restaurant situated directly on the beach, ideal for a relaxing lunch or romantic dinner under the night sky.
