I have a feeling I may not eat all that well. Being in the Hamilton Princess. 

  That’s okay anything is better than this rainforest like climate in the NYC Tristan’s area right now. I’ll be on my own for a few days and maybe nights. Is it safe for me to explore the area around the hotel on foot? If not I’ll just stick to Marcus’s and the pool bar. 

  Is there a decent Uber presence there? I’m thinking we should hit up duty free on the flight out. 

 

You'll have the opportunity for some good meals.  There are lots of restaurants in Hamilton and some are very good.  There's nice shopping too if you are in to that sort of thing (I'm not much of a shopper).  

 

Bermuda in general is very safe, especially during the day.  You will be OK in town alone.  Stay in the main areas and out of dark alleys 🙂  Most crimes are petty theft and the like.  It's rare though.  For example yesterday my husband went to the market and left his iPhone X with his license and credit cards in the wallet part of his phone case in the basket of his shopping cart.  When he realized and went back, it was still sitting there.  Someone had opened it and looked for cash, but nothing else was touched (no cash in there).

 

Uber as such does not exist on Bermuda.  There's a different app you can download, HITCH, which is kind of like Uber.  There are not always drivers available though.  You can always call a cab, the drivers are wonderfully nice.

Avocado fries! Why have I never thought of that before?! That sounds delightful and decadent.  Other dishes on your more recent restaurant post are also inspiring. 

 

Since you don't plan to do much in the way of restaurants in the near future, please remember that we are also fascinated with local grocers and what you do with that food in the rental kitchen. :)

@liamsaunt thanks for the advice. My husband has works dinner 2 of the 5 nights we will be there so I’ll be solo. 

 

  Is there a grocery store in Hamilton? Do you have any recommendations for a solo female diner?

The finest grocery on the island is right by your hotel, Miles Market.  They have everything you could possibly need, from fresh fruits, vegetables, meats and fish to prepared foods like soup, sushi, grilled meats etc.  They have a large selection of beer and wine, plus a full liquor selection.  There's a Godiva cafe in there, and a large (for an island) bakery.

As far as dining, there are a bunch of restaurants on Front Street (the main road through town and the road your hotel is on) that have outdoor dining looking over the street and harbor.  The outdoor seating is up on the second floor so you can have a good view for people watching to entertain you while dining solo.  Most of the tables up there are for two, so you should not have a problem getting seated at one.

 

I remembered the name of the Indian restaurant I mentioned earlier: House of India.  Last time we ate there we were seated next to the Premier of Bermuda, so you know it has to be good 🙂

Now that I am home and organized I'll post our last meal.  My niece and nephew begged us to go back to the Frog and Onion on our last full day because they offer all day waffles on Saturdays.  Of course we caved.  The waffles

My husband and I are coming back for a long weekend at the end of next month and will be exploring some new to us places, I hope.  We are staying at Elbow Beach for the first time so a repeat visit to Mickey's will definitely happen.  Everything else is up for grabs.  If you eat anywhere good on your trip MetsFan5, post it here!  Until then...

 

My favorite beach, Warwick Long Bay

@liamsaunt thanks for sharing. I have been curious about The Frig and the Onion. 

  We don’t land today (omg I need to go to bed) until 8:30pm and I’m worried we won’t be able to get dinner. Seems like the Lobster Pot May be open late. Also, the shopping is super appealing. I’ll add to this thread soon enough.
