Serving authentically French cuisine within eyeshot of Hamilton Harbour, this upscale restaurant on the grounds of Newstead Belmont Hills Resort & Spa is among Bermuda's best. Spearheaded by critically acclaimed chef Jean Claude Garzia, who was awarded the "Meilleur Ouvrier de France" in 1998 (France’s highest honor for a chef), Beau Rivage features an ever-changing seasonal menu of classic French fare. Favorites include pan-seared frogs'  legs in garlic butter, traditional beef bourguignonne, and Chef Garzia's seafood bouillabaisse with shrimp, mussels, clams, crab, scallops, and fresh local fish. Desserts are equally as French, featuring classics such as crème brulee, apple tarte tatin, and a soufflé of the day. For a special night, reserve the chef's table, an eight- to 12-seat table inside the kitchen where patrons are treated to a five-, seven-, or nine-course meal of the chef's choosing.
