When Hollywood super-couple Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones used to live in Bermuda, this was the restaurant they patronized most frequently. Maybe it was the expertly prepared seafood or perhaps, the dimly-lit dining room and nicely spaced tables, both of which provide unusual privacy and the ability to have a eavesdrop-proof conversation. Whatever the reason, this City of Hamilton favorite remains one of Bermuda’s best, even if today’s VIPs are power-lunching locals and well-dressed socialites not movie stars. Amid walls sheathed with unusual modern paintings, you can order a roster of exquisite fish-based dishes that change with whatever comes in from local fishermen on the day of your arrival (imported fish is also served). The best examples is the seared rockfish with a Dark n’ Stormy glaze and locally foraged loquat chutney. Decadent cuts of meat are also de rigeur, like the beef tasting, a meatapalooza with boursin stuffed filet mignon, braised cheeks and sous vide short ribs. Tip: If you’re up for some live music after dinner, head downstairs to the Hog Penny pub, which often features local acoustic acts.
