Any 'must eat here' recommendations?

We are cruising to Bermuda and docking 3 days. Plenty of food on the ship and haven't heard reference to Bermuda as a food destination. Wondering if there are any local food establishments not to be missed, either for local flare, atmosphere or any other characteristics that are worth the extra cost when we've already got meals included on the ship. Traveling with 2 kids, ages 11 and 14 who appreciate good food and are open to new experiences. Alcohol is not a priority.

Thanks for any thoughts...

You might want to take a look at the Frog and Onion which is located in one of the enormous stone buildings left by the Royal Navy in the Dockyard. Good pub food.

As noted above...if they ever do a '..Pirates of the Caribbean--Curse of the Bermuda Triangle..' the Frog & Onion Pub will be the 'location' for the '..pirate tavern..'. Lunch here and you'll feel an overwhelming urge to preface every sentence with an '...Arrrrh...'. Review this '..language..' primer before you arrive--

www.talklikeapirate.com/howto.html#basic

Other minor Bermuda '..institutions..' you can try--

HOG PENNY PUB--(downtown Hamilton)

http://www.hogpennypub.com/

SWIZZLE INN--('original' location)--

http://www.swizzleinn.com/

OR...go for something a bit '..traditional..'....a proper Afternoon Tea at

HERITAGE COURT LOUNGE at the Fairmont Hamilton Princess Hotel--

fairmont.com/hamilton-bermuda/…

SWEET 'P' TEA ROOM--(at: Bermuda Perfumery, Saint Georges...Wed. & Sat ONLY)--

dockyardtimes.com/dockyard-seasonal-events/1…

and try try to make time for the BAILEY'S ICE CREAM SHOP, at the top of Blue Hole Hill, directly across the road from the 'original' Swizzle Inn. A double scoop of their maple walnut is worth the price of airfare to Bermuda.

Just got back from Bermuda two days ago and must agree that the Swizzle Inn is a "must" place to visit, but you'll be sitting with lots of other tourists. The food is great, and the Swizzle is a great/small drink that will intrigue your taste buds. If you'd like a feel of the island culture--eat at the Specialty Restaurant. Nothing special, really, but you'll get the feel of the island culture, and the food is excellent!

If I had to choose a must eat that isn't the typical tourist spot, only because tourists haven't read too deep and isn't super fluffy fluffy expensive "bites" to eat would be Art Mel's Spicy Dicy - can't vouch for the Hamilton spot we just went to the St George's location. Get the fish sandwich on raisin bread with tarter and cole slaw, if you like it with a little heat ask for hot sauce (it's not too hot, but you know it's there). If you're lucky Art will be there and his charisma and personality will make the sandwich taste even better. It's not hip, it's not fancy, it's a great fish sandwich you'll never forget and no one back home will believe you.

The original ART MEL'S SPICY DICEY, on Saint Monica's Road, located in Pembroke, on the back-side of Hamilton, is another minor Bermudian '..institution..'...but this location is a bit inconvenient to get to if you're not riding a rental motor scooter. The new location out on Water Street, in downtown Saint George's offers the same '..Best Fish Sandwich in Bermuda..' with more convenient access.

There are still a lot of local establishments that offer good food at modest/moderate prices for those on a budget or those who simply want '..something good to east..' rather than a '..dining experience..'.

The SPECIALY INN-- bermudayp.com/local/…speciality-inn --(previously mentioned) out on the Devonshire/Smith's border, along the South Road (at: Collector's Hill, is one....The PARAQUET RESTAURANT-- www.bermudayp.com/dining/view/47:32371--out in Paget (nr: Elbow Beach) along the South Road is another....The SPOT RESTAURANT-- https:/…390123621011172 --up on Burnaby Street (btwn: Reid & Church Sts) in downtown Hamilton...DOROTHY'S COFFEE SHOP, up in the Chancery Lane pedestrian alleyway (btwn: Front & Reid Sts) in downtown Hamilton....ANGELINE'S COFFEE SHOP, out along Water Street ((#48...btwn: One Gun Alley & Shinbone Alley)...ISLAND CUISINE-- http://islandcuisine.org/ --out in Southampton, along the Middle Road (Heron Bay Shopping Centre) is another.

NONE will be '..must eat here..' selections but...all will be solidly good for breakfasts, lunches and dinners....and great places to meet 'n mingle with local residents sitting at the next table or on the next stool at the counter.

Thanks to all for the great suggestions. Just back and ended up simply eating at whatever beach we were at. Due to Cricket tournament we were advised that most businesses would be closed anywhere we went. Did stop at Frog and Onion Pub at the dockyard for our last meal in port. Enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. Love Bermuda and hope to go back for another visit with more time to explore when things are open.

All of our meals in Bermuda were very good, but one in particular stands out as being most unique and exquisite. We visited "The Flame." This is a small restaurant on North Shore Drive just down the road a bit from the Rustico Restaurant in Flatt's Village. Jennifer, the owner and chef, serves her meals beginning at 10:00 am onward. Her food is incredibly tasty and offered with a local flair. Breakfast is especially affordable, and her servings are generous amounts. Guests can enjoy the large stoned patio with breathtaking views of the island while she whips up your meals her professional kitchen. Arrive in the evening, get a glass of wine, and enjoy the prettiest sunsets on the island while you wait. Excellent service and food!
