Locals' restaurants in Bermuda

Recommended Posts

My wife and I are going to Bermuda at the beginning of August. We love good food and like to explore places most tourists don't go. Can anyone recommend eating places on Bermuda frequented by locals? The places don't have to be fancy.

Hi,

The Black Horse Tavern on St. David's Island serves a combination of locals and tourists. Casual, very fresh fish and local dishes. It is wonderful.

If you're already acquainting yourself with St. David's -- which is a 45-minute to an hour moped ride but considered waaaay remote by locals! -- you should check out Dennis' Hideaway, also. The late Dennis' son, known as "Sea Egg," will cook you fresh-caught fish, shark hash, stew and other old Bermudan fare not found much anymore. You should call him in advance. The place is uniquely scruffy -- especially for Bermuda -- and he'll tell you lots of stories about how it used to be in St. David's, which considers itself a bit separate from the rest of Bermuda.

Unfortunately, I find the rest of Bermudan fare overpriced and boring. Yes, that includes the top-notch restaurants. I don't travel to islands to eat four-star meals. But that's just me. Just got back from Eleuthera, Bahamas, where I enjoyed the limited but wonderful soul cuisine of fried grouper, fried mahi-mahi, fried conch, conch fritters and sheep's tongue souse. Loved it.

Go to Black Horse and Dennis' though. You won't regret it.
