This upscale, sophisticated restaurant is one of the best in Bermuda for steak lovers. In the 1950s, before Harry, its founder, boarded the PanAm Clipper to Bermuda, he stopped in New York to dine at a then-famous steakhouse named Peter’s Backyard. His meal was so exceptional he returned to Bermuda with a suitcase full of sirloin, the first unfrozen prime beef that island had ever seen. Decades later, based on that experience, Harry’s beef is still full of flavor, aged for 21 days, and impeccably prepared for an audience of businesspersons from the island’s financial community. The selection from the grill ranges from filet mignon to boneless rib-eye to double thick Welsh lamb chops. It’s also an excellent spot for seafood, and for small bites: head to the bar, where you can sit on high top tables and choose from a menu of small plates while sipping a proprietary batch of Gosling’s rum especially blended for the restaurant (it’s served from a mini barrel behind the bar). The waterfront patio, where you can watch sailboats pull in and out of Hamilton Harbour, is perfect for a breezy lunch.
