5 Bermuda Restaurants Worth a Visit


What’s incredible about the Bermuda restaurant scene isn’t so much the number or quality of restaurants, but the sheer variety of cuisines represented on the menus, especially considering that Bermuda is such a tiny island.

Hosting a tantalizing medley of global cuisines, Bermuda offers a mouthwatering east for the palate. Whatever your desire, it can be well satisfied here. Let’s take a look.

1. Aggie’s Café

Aggie’s is a waterside café housed in the lower level of Falconer House next to the water.

Aggie’s greets guests with pumpkin-colored walls, green trim and stools tucked under counters.
Using New York cooking school experience, owner Judith Wadson brings a fresh and unique style to the Bermudian culinary scene.

Guests can also dine in the garden, enjoying the daily-changing menu that includes soups, sandwiches, salads, free-range chicken, grilled fish and baked goodies like fresh fruit tarts.

Furthermore, Aggie’s offers dinner to go as well as cooking classes with a focus on healthy eating.

2. Fourways Inn

Often lauded as one of the best restaurants on the island, Fourways Inn serves locally inspired Continental cuisine in a Georgian building dating back to 1727. Imagine fine dining in a place reminiscent of latter years with its coral-and-cedar structure decorated with mahogany accents that also served as a guesthouse for almost three centuries.

Sitting among the Impressionist paintings, large French windows and a cool garden patio, visitors will be served dishes such as veal scallopine and grilled lobster with lemon butter sauce. For dessert, the signature soufflés are available in flavors such as Grand Marnier and Dark & Stormy.

3. Rock Island Coffee Café

Rock Island Coffee Café is well known for its raspberry scones, paintings by local artists, and north-shore gossip. Just a block from the waterfront, Rock Island serves the only locally roasted coffee in Bermuda and is known for its friendly atmosphere and scrumptious baked goods.

Rock Island’s walls are always decorated with fresh and interesting artwork by local artists. For the art lovers, this is a wonderful place to sample the local collection while dining in style.

4. The Heritage Court at the Fairmont Hamilton Princess

Located in the Fairmont Hamilton Princess Hotel, The Heritage Court restaurant serves everything from small plates to full entrees for both lunch and dinner. 

Of a more modern style, the interior has a British Colonial décor including dark hardwood tables, white paneled walls and pillars, model ships, and maritime paintings.

The Court’s menu options include baked local rockfish with coconut curry, traditional Bermuda fish chowder, and Cuban pulled pork panini. True to the English style, the restaurant also serves English tea complete with finger sandwiches, pastries, and Devonshire clotted cream.

The attached bar serves tropcial cocktails, including the Bermuda rum swizzle, and a live pianist performs nightly.

5. The Frog & Onion Pub

The Frog & Onion Pub is a small structure that formerly served as a barrel-making factory at the Dockyard. This little structure attracts families who come for the very British menu including pasties, fish and shepherd’s pie.

While in Bermuda, try to eat like localy and put a couple of traditional dishes to the test. Remember, Bermuda is a seafood lover’s paradise, with favorite dishes including mussel pie, shark hash, and codfish and bananas. Don’t forget to kick back and relax after a meal with a Rum Swizzle, a Black and Coke, or a Dark ‘n Stormy.
