Bermuda Report (long)

Spent a long weekend in Bermuda (friday - tuesday) and here is my report. The food was good. Didnt have a great meal, however, I didnt have a bad meal either.

Friday Night:
Barracuda Grill- this was a good meal, stuck with sea food on both appetizer and entree. Tuna Tartare was tasty as an appetizer had a horse radish creme fraiche that brought a good kick to the dish. Entree was a lobster and rock fish dish. The rock fish was a little bland and the lobster tail was about the size of prawn. I tried my wife's crab cakes and those were really good and creamy but 2 silver dollar crab cakes at $39 seemed way overpriced. Cant really remember the dessert so it must have not been that great.

Saturday - We had lunch at Flannigans to watch England/Portugal. The atmosphere was great with everyone cheering on England. Wings and chicken fingers were good. Very good Bloody Mary’s.

Saturday Night - We made reservations at the Sea Horse Grill at the Mandarin Elbow Beach hotel though they were not needed as the the place was half empty. Three course meal was priced at $55 which I though was really good deal. Had grilled prawns to start, nice portion size with a very nice grill flavor. Second course was a tomato and cucumber gazpacho with basil sorbet and avocado. This was great, the basil sorbet and avocado were a great mix and the gazpacho was very refreshing. Entree was 2 pound grilled lobster, very nice, sweet tasting(note the lobster added a $29 charge to my $55 three course price). Best meal of the weekend.

Sunday We had lunch at the Pickled Onion. Had a nice Arabian lamb wrap. Nice spices and herbs very flavorful, even bought a t-shirt there.

Sunday Night - Little Venice restaurant. Good Buffalo Mozzarella with a tasty Prosciutto. Lamb Chops were a little on the small side, but tasted good nonetheless. Wife had a safron risotto which was too salty. Nice gelatos to end the meal.

Monday Night - No lunch on Monday - We went to the HarbourFront Restaurant - Tuna Carpaccio and salmon tartare combination for an appetizer. Both tasted very good separately but not too good together. 20 ounce rib eye was cooked great and tasted even better. Didnt need the sauces that came with it. Wife had a very big bowl of lobster linguini which she said was very good. We shared a chocolate on chocolate cake that was so rich we couldnt finish.

Again, all in all good meals. I didnt find the prices to be too expensive as some have mentioned on here before - they seemed to be like many other tropical locales.
