What to Eat in Bermuda

Considering that its islands are surrounded by the Atlantic on all sides, Bermuda has the inside edge on quality seafood. Fish chowder (with a dash of sherry), codfish cakes and spiny lobster are island favorites. But its remote location at sea also means almost all other ingredients are imported in, and at a premium – Bermuda restaurants are universally described as expensive.

Dining on the islands is also more formal than on other destinations, so you should call ahead to find out the dress code. Although you can keep your Bermuda shorts on for the dinner hour, many establishments prefer you accessorize with a jacket and tie. Most visitors dine in the central parishes where there are more dining options. Ascots and Fourways Inn are two popular spots that offer European menus with fresh and local ingredients. If international fare is what you crave, recent travelers and experts recommend House of India.

Port O' CallThe Lobster Pot & Boat House Bar and The Harbourfront Restaurant and Komodaru Sushi Lounge all offer fresh seafood local island dishes. Once you're seated, try local delicacies like Bermudian wahoo, which is a type of white fish, some lobster or rockfish. No visit to Bermuda is complete without trying some of its famous rum. Try a rum swizzle at the world-famous Swizzle Inn Pub & Restaurant or a dark 'n' stormy at any bar on the island.
