There’s nothing better than dining outdoors in the summertime. Lucky for us, some of Bermuda’s finest food and best views can be found al fresco. Here is a list of 14 restaurants that highlight the island’s stunning natural beauty and culinary heritage.
Munchies By the Sea
St. George’s newest eatery is getting rave reviews, and we agree, it is the perfect place for an authentically Bermudian lunch. The Munchies experience is zero hassle: just order, choose from the many brightly colored picnic tables to sit, and enjoy a fresh fish sandwich in the sunshine.
50 Water Street, St George’s, 261-5641
Want to take a power lunch to break up the WFH day? Or grab a glass of wine to get out of the house for the evening? Harry’s has you covered. The outdoor seating at Harry’s has enmassed many loyal fans and is a Hamilton favorite.
96 Pitts Bay Road, Hamilton, 292-5533
Pink Beach Club at The Loren
The Pink Beach Club is literally built into the South Shore shoreline. This open-air rotunda with no walls or windows ensures there is nothing between you and the horizon. Every table has an excellent view, but we recommend getting as close to the surf as possible to feel completely immersed in the seaside dining experience.
116 South Road, Tucker’s Town, 293-1666
White Horse Sunday Brunch
You can hear the beat of reggae and soca from the White Horse Sunday Brunch across St. George’s harbor. Spend your Sunday afternoon sipping Swizzle and basking in the sunshine before digging into their fantastic brunch options.
8 Kings Square, St Georges, 297-1838
Bermuda craft beer on tap, laid-back, family-friendly atmosphere, and great views of the Sound, you can’t beat Divot’s outdoor patio. This restaurant isn’t only for golfers straight off the 18th hole. It’s a great spot to take kids, friends, and colleagues.
25 Belmont Hills Drive, Warwick, 434-8687
Transport yourself back to the elegance and ease of old school Bermuda by spending an evening on Ascot’s porch. Enjoy Bermudian classics like cold banana soup while sipping on a beautifully crafted cocktail. After your meal, why not take a stroll around the enchanting hotel gardens?
24 Rosemont Avenue, Pembroke, 295-9644
Crown & Anchor Monday Quiz Night
At 6 pm on a Monday night, get yourself down to the Hamilton Princess to test your trivia knowledge and self-control. Every week, the Crown & Anchor is offering up brain teasers and tasty bar snacks. Friendly warning: the Cocktail of the Week might damage your quizzing capabilities!
76 Pitts Bay Road, Hamilton, 295-3000
Mickey’s might be out of commission, but Sea Breeze remains an idyllic spot for incredible drinks, sushi, and pizza under the stars. Keep your eyes peeled on the horizon! You might catch a whale breaching as the sun dips below South Shore surf.
60 South Shore Road, Paget, 236-9884
There is nowhere better to watch the sunset cast its golden glow over Bermuda. The Flame’s patio offers a panoramic view of the entire island from Dockyard to St. George’s. The only thing that rivals the location is the quality of the food and service: all we can say is chef’s kiss.
89 North Shore Road, Devonshire, 292-0348
There isn’t a Bermudian worth their salt who hasn’t chowed down on a fish sandwich at Woody’s, still salty from the boat or the beach, and washed it down with a Dark ‘n’ Stormy. This Somerset stalwart belongs on every Bermudian foodie’s list.
1 Woody’s Drive, Somerset, 234-6526
Flatt’s Village is one of the most picturesque spots on the island. Park at the Aquarium and stroll over the bridge before alighting onto Rustico’s Al Fresco patio. Twinkling fairy lights, Neapolitan pizza, and an Italian wine list to swoon over might make you believe you’re dining in Capri.
38 North Shore Road, Flatts, 295-5212
Underestimated and often overlooked, Robin Hood’s outdoor space is ideal for a chilled pint after work or an afternoon watching the football. The patio hosts multiple TV screens showcasing the match of the day and its own outdoor bar, so you’re never far from a refill.
25 Richmond Road, Hamilton, 295-3314
Sandy’s hidden treasure sparkles at the top of the Port Royal golf course. The wrap-around patio looks out over a glittering ocean vista, and kids are welcome to play on the grass mere steps from the table. Do not sleep on the Fried Calamari and Zucchini. It’s the best calamari we’ve ever tasted.
5 Port Royal Golf Course Southampton, 232-0100
The Dockyard Pastry Shop
Tucked away in some of the most historic limestone buildings in Bermuda, you will find the most adorable courtyard in Dockyard. The Dockyard Pastry Shop offers excellent afternoon teas with a selection of homemade sweet treats and even a glass of prosecco! The paninis and salads are as generous as they are delicious, but be sure to grab a cookie or cinnamon swirl for later, as the pastries are where these café shines.
Only open Thurs- Sunday, 12 Dockyard Terrace, 232-2253
