Bermuda bound

Going in 2 weeks for 4 days. Was there 2 years ago. Any new dining spots or old stand bys that are must goes? Would like to plan one exceptional dinner out to celebrate 18th wedding anniversary. Other than that want to keep it casual w plenty of seafood and salads. Where shall we go?

  1. The Reefs is superb on all levels.

    1. Definately The Reefs, also Waterloo House and the Newport Room at Fairmont Southampton as options for the anniversary dinner. What part of the island will you be on and how are you getting around?

      1. I'm renting an apt. in Shelly Bay and will be getting around on the 3 day bus pass.

          Shaebones I'm going to Shelly Bay and have an apartment as well. Just curious where you stayed.

            I stayed here. I think the name of the street is Old Bay Road which is off the main road not far from the supermarket. The owner is a doll. She's the consierge at The Grotto so knows all the good places to go on the Island.

              Bingo; thought this may be where you stayed. Any way we can email each other about E08??? I'm new here and don't see an email member option anywhere here.

                Shaebones do you have any pics of E08???

                  Sorry, no pics. I posted my email address on my profile (under blog). Feel free to email me w any questions.

          2. That's near where I live. I walk every morning on the part of the railway trail that starts at Shelly Bay beach. There's Rustico in Flatts and another small restaurant practically next door for breakfast and lunch, they've been renovating - not sure if it's open yet. The Swizzle Inn is OK for burgers and fish sandwiches. The Bailey's Bay Cricket Club on Coney Island has Jamaican food and the Black Horse in St David's has seafood.

              Stayed near the Flatts 6 years ago and know Rustico well. It was my very first meal in Bermuda :)Have been to Black Horse and Swizzle too. Cricket Club sounds interesting. Where is Coney Island?

            2. It's in Bailey's Bay, not far from the old Perfume Factory and Swizzle Inn, check your map, and ask your bus driver to let you off at the nearest bus stop.
