Ok to preface this I am a repeater at The Reefs, which in my opinion has the best food on island as well as the former Stonington and Cambridge Beaches..oh and Waterloo. Having said that I was in St. Georges for a long weekend. We had continental breakfast at our Inn but dined out and I can honestly say I did not enjoy ONE MEAL.
Lunch 1: Cafe Gio - awesome waterfront spot, indifferent wait staff, food so so. I had Bermuda Fish Cake which was almost Indian like full of curry yet no taste if that makes sense? My child had a tiny Caesar Salad with dried out chicken for 16.95 and Mom had portobellow soup which was yummy. She also had a bruchetta which tasted like a Stouffer's french bread pizza. The price for lunch with one soda and a bottle of water was 60.00 USD.
Dinner 1:Island Cuisine - local food on Middle Road in I think Warwick? Rock fish was 21.50 and came with a choice of sides. The rice and peas tasted like fried rice. Since it was Asian run this would make sense. The fish was dry. My kid had a burger for 6.00. Nothing to rave about.
Lunch 2: Swizzle Inn - what a JOKE..terrible burgers for 12.95. No flavour. Our waiter was great...fun setting but do not eat here...drinks are safe.
Dinner 2: Tavern By The Sea - what can I say, great views but only so so. Pizza was ok for 19.00 (half veggies half plain). Nice cup of ham and bean soup. Brochetta like Stouffer's again. Conch fritters tasted more curry than anything.
Lunch 3: Lobster Pot in town- fun place, great waitress and so so food. Very pricey too...I am too depressed to get into the dissappointment here but it was so average. Next time back to The Reefs. You get what you pay for.
I was so bummed we did not have a good meal this entire weekend...
Glad to have seen this post. My husband and I were considering eating at Swizzle Inn after heading to the Crystal Caverns, but now I think we will reconsider and just head there for a rum swizzle instead. Rachael Ray happened to be doing a $40/day Bermuda that I caught the other night (which was pretty much a joke, I think) and I also saw the place and couldn't imagine actually ordering anything there. Classic dive bar -- definitely not the place to eat!
