Dining in Bermuda

My wife and I were there for a long weekend in October, 2014....  a hurricane arrived shortly after we did!

 

Ha that happened to us too, in 2011 I think.  We were the last plane to land before the storm caused the airport to close.  It was wild when we got up the next morning: our room faced the harbor and it did not seem like anything was happening.  Then we went to the ocean side of the hotel and the wind and waves were crazy!  Luckily the storm blew out quickly and the rest of our vacation was lovely.

 

Light photos from yesterday.  We walked on the beach trail down to my favorite beach, Warwick Long Bay, with the intention of coming back up on the road and having lunch at the South Shore Swizzle Inn.

Unfortunately we ended up walking in the wrong direction and ended up back at our resort haha.  Grilled shrimp wrap from the Beach Cabana:

Dinner was at the Waterlot Inn, one of the oldest restaurants on the island.  It's been around in some form or another since 1610.  We shared a tart made of local Bermuda onions for our starter.

For mains I got the fish sampler, which was tuna, salmon, and grouper.  My husband had a waygu steak.  This is an a la carte restaurant so for sides we shared some sautéed spinach and truffled mac and cheese.  Too full for dessert, though they did give us some chocolate covered sea salt caramels.  They are in the fridge for later.

Everything was tasty but don't go here if you are on a budget.  The bill was punishingly expensive.
