Elegant, sophisticated and thoroughly upscale, The Point is the one of the few island restaurants where a jacket is recommended for gentlemen—understandable, since this fine dining establishment is indeed one of Bermuda's best. It's housed in a handsome white-tableclothed dining room at Tucker's Point Resort on the island's southeastern shore, and while its international cuisine is certain to please, so are its surroundings. 


On the walls hang large hand-painted murals depicting world ports of the 1880s, which once adorned the Sky Club in New York's Pan Am Building (Tucker’s Point president Ed Trippe is the son of Pan Am founder Juan Trippe; the murals were acquired by Ed at auction when the Sky Club closed in 2005). 

The restaurant serves as Tucker's Point's main dining area for breakfast and lunch but if you’re not staying at the hotel—or even if you are—set aside a special night and splurge on dinner. Chef Guido Brambillo’s creations are inspired as much as they are delectable. Starters include local favorites such as house-cured salmon with Bermuda honey and black seal rum or the spiny Bermuda lobster over squid ink tagliolini, while entrees range from an Asian-style yellow fin tuna with enoki mushrooms and ponzu foam to roasted beef tenderloin with a foie gras crust.
