Restaurants, Bars & Pubs

For a place with a population of only 62,000 this small island seems to have a disproportionate number of many things. With over 100 restaurants to choose from visitors will have no trouble in finding a place to suit both palette and pocket. Compare this with a small town in your home country and we guarantee the numbers won’t even come close.

Recent decades have brought immense variety to the island’s culinary scene. With the explosion of international business and the kick it has given to Bermuda’s economy, restaurants have been forced to up their standards to meet the needs of both the international businessman and a more discerning local population. Bermuda imports a large proportion of its workers and this diversity is reflected in the menus. Local favourites like Fish Chowder are still found in many places but recent trends see internationally acclaimed chefs combining local produce with world styles.

One thing that’s not plentiful in Bermuda is fast food outlets. Those who can’t live without a Big Mac will be disappointed as fast food franchises have been outlawed by the government. Somehow a KFC skipped the legislation but the Colonel looks destined to spend the rest of his life in solitude.

The dress code has been relaxed in recent years. A few establishments still require jacket and tie but smart casual will guarantee entry to most. Bear in mind that most restaurants automatically add gratuities so exercise caution to avoid tipping twice.
