Quote: I love dining out and was pleasantly surprised at the range of options in Bermuda. In this journal I will share some ideas of where to go and perhaps where not.

Newport Room

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "Blue Ribbon Dining"

Quote:
The Newport Room is widely considered to be one of Bermuda’s top restaurants. Indeed there really is only one other on the island that in my view could be considered to be of the same or similar ilk. During my two years living in Bermuda, I have been to the Newport Room three times, most recently to celebrate my last birthday on the island.The restaurant is based within the Fairmount Princess Hotel in Southampton. Tables are greatly in demand from both local residents and visitors, so reservations are essential. For a Saturday night, I would definitely recommend booking a couple of weeks ahead. A nautical theme prevails. The entrance lobby is wooden decked and looks like ...Read More

The Elbow Beach Resort is part of the exclusive Mandarin Oriental chain and Lido Restaurant is one of two fine dining experiences offered at the resort (the other being the Seahorse Grill). A third sister restaurant, Mickey’s, is outdoors and literally on the beach. Lido’s has the advantage of being situated directly overlooking the beach and the Atlantic Ocean, but offers a more formal dining experience than the tables on the beach.I have dined here several times. I often had business visitors whilst I lived in Bermuda and Lido’s never failed to impress, not only with food but the stunning views. I have also brought two parties of visiting relatives here and they also came away very happy c...Read More

Harbourfront

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "Not Simply Sushi"

Quote:
When I first moved to Bermuda the Harbourfront Restaurant in Bermuda used to occupy a spot on Front Street, Hamilton’s main shopping street. The entrance was tiny, but the premises reasonably large and pleasant if starting to get a little dated. It had a good reputation for seafood on the island.About two years ago, the Front Street restaurant was closed down and relocated into the same buildings as the Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute (BUEI). The new position is an enviable spot, literally on the harbour front, but just on the outskirts of the Hamilton town centre. As residents it was easy for us to drive here, a visitor would probably prefer to catch a cab or a bus from the...Read More

Restaurant | "Feeling Pickled"

Quote:
Three years ago my husband made a spur of the moment decision to apply for a job he saw advertised in Bermuda. Before we knew it, we were heading over there for a reconnaissance trip to Bermuda in May 2006. Bermuda is a stunningly beautiful place, but when we arrived that Friday night it was raining and gloomy and our first impression was not that good. This proved to be a very unusual first impression as most people are won over on the journey from the airport. After dumping our things in the guest house that had been booked for us we set out for a walk into Hamilton at about 7.30pm. I don’t know why but we found it quite an intimidating place initially, with gangs of youths hanging...Read More

Aqua Seaside Restaurant

Restaurant | "One for the Star Spotters...?"

Quote:
Another week into my new role in Bermuda brought another set of corporate visitors from Europe. It is surprising how many people need to spend at least a week here on essential business matters around this time of year. I have never felt so important. Anyway this was a good opportunity to try out another of Bermuda’s expensive restaurants without too much concern for the budget.The venue was chosen by a member of my finance team and when I mentioned it to my husband in a bar that evening, a Scotsman sitting on my other side overheard and informed me that this was Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones’ restaurant, very famous and that he (the Scotsman) designed it.In fact the...Read More
