To really get the full experience here, make sure you sample the bearnaise sauce-drizzled catch of the day - which can be anything from rockfish to wahoo.
2. Woody’s Sports Bar
Woody’s Sports Bar is located in a bungalow-style structure right off the beach with a unique twist on pub food. In fact, it’s so popular and well-loved, you might even spot the occasional movie star paying a visit.

4. The White Horse
The White Horse Pub & Restaurant is located at 8 Kings Square, Saint Georges. It is one of the oldest and most famous pubs in Bermuda.
The White Horse is well known for its great pub food and lively bar scene - a place where locals and visitors come to eat and have a great time.
5. Rock Island Coffee
As soon as you step into Rock Island Coffee, you can feel the good vibes and the freshly brewed coffee definitely helps.
It’s the perfect way to start any morning. Soak in the casual and artsy atmosphere, sip on a variety of drinks while checking out the display of local art (which you can also buy!).
Any drink made with freshly roasted beans is worth a try, so it really depends on what you’re in the mood for. The usual favorites include a caramel latte made with whole milk or even something as simple as a macchiato.
Although, if you’re feeling a little adventurous, go ahead and try their Mexican hot chocolate.
Local staff, spectacular views from the patio and solid food - you can do no wrong by visiting Wahoo’s. It’s guaranteed to be a top recommendation by any islander that you ask.
According to local Bermudians, not all rum swizzles are created equal and Wahoo’s version simply can’t be missed. The best part? The rum swizzle here is perfect for pairing with some of the finest delicacies on offer.

Ceviche, conch fritter, fish chowder, Wahoo nuggets and Rockfish Picasso are just some of the dishes you need to try. Although, the fish tacos are - without a doubt - a staple here and well worth the drive to St. George’s Parish alone.
For the full experience, eat and drink on the patio during sunset.
Whether you need a power lunch, you want to have dinner to celebrate or enjoy a casual happy hour, Harry’s is the place to visit. Plus, you can’t get more local than this as it was opened by Bermudian businessman, Will Cox, as a tribute to his late father.
The must-have drink to kick off your night simply has to be Harry’s Special Rum Blend. This is a collaboration between Harry’s and Gosling’s Rum, Bermuda’s native spirit brand.

To really eat like a local, order the Harry’s classic and enjoy a bottle of wine from the cellar. This is complete with shrimp cocktail, an iceberg wedge salad, a 14oz New York Strip steak and followed by a slice of heavenly cheesecake.
Fourways offers a dining experience like no other on the island. The restaurant is set in a traditional Bermuda building with limestone walls, arches and surrounding gardens. It is the only restaurant in Bermuda that still offers a live pianist every night.
