“Good for Lunch and Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

We had two meals here during our recent week in Bermuda - one lunch outside on the balcony overlooking Front Street and a dinner inside. Both meals were good and service was very efficient. The nachos were excellent, as was the burger, the quesadilla and the shrimps. We also had seafood pasta - good; jerk chicken and rice at dinner was less successful.
The place was very busy at lunch but the servers were very efficient and friendly; dinner was quieter and service was good. Overall, a good informal place to eat out when on holiday. Prices similar to elsewhere on the island for food, wine and beer.

“Not pickled- Just bad food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013 via mobile

This was recommendation from the locals, so even though its on Front street we decided to try it. They substituted 2 snapper order for what seem like monk fish, over cooked and if possible too much or the wrong spice.. How you could ruin fish is beyond me but they managed to do that very well...
Stay away !!!!

“Tasty food, efficient service and a room with a view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

We had lunch here on our first day in Bermuda, after a pleasant walk around Hamilton. Both our meals were very tasty, good value and served promptly and pleasantly, with a view of the harbour to round things out. There's a reason this place was so full (but not unpleasantly so). We'd go back in a heartbeat.

“Great Service - Tip them well!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

During a divine week in Bermuda, we dined one night at the Pickled Onion. Food was very good, but unlike every other restaurant we ate at in Bermuda, the service was good. Why?? Because all the other restaurants automatically add the gratuity to your bill. The servers have absolutely no incentive to provide good service. Pickled Onion does NOT add gratuity so you have servers that actually have to earn the tip. Made for a terrific dining experience, the only one I had in Bermuda!
