DINING & NIGHTLIFE
A Fusion of Flavours
Whilst Bermuda blends a variety of influences into its cuisine, the island is a British Overseas Territory, so the United Kingdom’s influence on Bermuda is undeniable. English and Irish pubs on the island serve up authentic British fare like fish and chips, bangers and mash, steak and ale, shepherd’s pie and carved roast beef with Yorkshire pudding. And of course, frosty local pints are the best pairing for these hearty British meals. Many Bermudians also follow the English custom of afternoon tea paired with finger sandwiches, cookies, cakes and pastries; and there are plenty of venues were visitors can indulge their fondness for tea time, ranging from eateries with lush garden settings to upscale hotel lounges.
Whilst Bermuda was never colonised by the U.S., the island’s proximity to the States makes it an easy getaway for Americans, and as such, you’ll also find American fare prevalent on Bermudian restaurant menus. Bistros, cafés, and casual restaurants offer burgers, soups, salads, and other fare that’s sure to make American visitors feel at home.
