Welcome to Paraquet, where good service is key and generous, homemade meals are king. For over 50 years, this dedicated, family-run restaurant has honoured a time-worn commitment to dishing out satisfying, heartwarming food.
Now into its third generation, the kitchen’s ample menu attracts all kinds, from Bermudians to tourists, businessmen to families. Paraquet’s servers are more than just courteous, welcoming and very patient with kids – they’re also experienced and intuitive, knowing just when to top up your coffee and offer you dessert. Simply put, Paraquet is a local staple, complete with cushion-top stools, a casual vibe and generous, fulfilling portions that won’t break your pocket book.
The 2016 Best of Bermuda Award winner for “Best Diner”, Paraquet is known for its loyal followers, who return weekly for a feel-good, home-style meal and a slice of their famous, mile-high lemon meringue pie. A long list of reasonably priced breakfast, lunch and dinner options appeal to all ages, from meatloaf to mac n’ cheese to classic egg salad sandwiches. There’s also a special children’s menu that even the pickiest eaters will enjoy. Just try to save room for dessert – Paraquet bakes daily some of the yummiest breads, cookies and golden, pastry-topped mini apple tarts.
Situated on South Shore Road, a quick nip from Hamilton, Paraquet is close to a number of the island’s best resorts and pink sand beaches – in fact both Elbow and Horseshoe beach are just right around the corner. After a day in the hot sun, nothing beats a Paraquet cheese burger, a thick chocolate milkshake and a handful of fries. Other lunchtime favourites include the buffalo chicken wrap and their homemade soup of the day. Paraquet also serves the three time Best of Bermuda Award-winning codfish and potatoes breakfast – offered on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm. It’s a real taste of Bermuda cooking and is well worth the stop!
