Restaurants in Bermuda
Not surprisingly, seafood is plentiful on Bermuda. Locally caught fish like wahoo, rockfish, mahi mahi, and snapper are prepared using some traditional English cooking techniques. One local dish is called paw paw casserole, which is made of paw paw fruit, tomatoes, onions, beef, and cheese. Given the amount of travelers, there are a lot of Bermuda restaurants to choose from. If you’re looking to dine with the locals, then stop at the Black Horse Tavern in St. George’s Parish. We hear the fish sandwiches are delish. On the first Wednesday of every month, the restaurant hosts a rowdy Quiz Night.
Another great local spot is Hog Penny. Their menu includes dishes like wahoo bites (pieces of wahoo flavored with jerk spices and then fried), Bermuda fish chowder, bangers and mash, and plenty of other meat and seafood dishes. Starters are around $11 which main dishes average $20. For oceanfront views and piña coladas, try Breezes at the Cambridge Beaches Resort. Open for lunch and dinner, this restaurant offers Caribbean cuisine (like fire roasted rock lobster tail and braised oxtail) at a higher price point than the aforementioned options.
