“Great views and even better food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

What more could we ask for than great food, great service and a water view? We heard Blu had good food but the four of us were treated to magnificent service and everyone loved their meal. We would recommend this restaurant highly.

“Sushi, Deck, View, & Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

WEBSITE

LOCATION and GROUP
Positioned on the harbor cove in Warwick within a residential area, Blû is on many people's fave list. Apparently, two or three restauranteurs in Bermuda created the LIttle Venice group with to feature their different restaurants. One hostess shared that you can by a MAP plan in which the Little Venice group restaurants are your "meal plan" for your stay. Eating at each one is then already paid-in-full unless you opt for some exceptionally priced items outside of the proposed plan.

ATMOSPHERE
Most people will bring up the view as wonderful, fantastic, ... They are right. The deck area is very nice. The bar area seemed to be hopping when we arrived; there are sushi opps as well. Sometimes, if you can plan the reservation well, you may even get to have a romantic sunset while you dine. (1) Check the sunset schedule for Bermuda. (2) Get a reservation in advance or you may get a bit of an obstructed view. Inside can work as well if you do not care for the occasional humid evening.

SERVICE
Excellent with a team approach for drinks, ordering, delivery and checkbacks. The hostess and manager each checked in occasionally without being obtrusive. The kitchen is open with the appetizer and entrée chefs being the ones you can see and talk with as you walk by. The chefs truly appear to take great pride in their work and its presentation. Be sure to stop by to compliment them. Some of the servers had international accents that we had difficulty with, but with everyone's patience and understanding, we enjoyed their service. Do not speak louder or more slowly to them as a nearby client tried to get his thoughts out.

FOOD and WINE
Unusual and tasty food combinations. We started with their calamari, one of our favorites. The calamari was lightly breaded and fried served with a mango and red chili pepper sauce. The chef scored with us. We had molasses-glazed tuna with a sweet mash and a pineapple chutney mahi-mahi with a broccoli risotto. Usually, I leave risotto on the plate; I do not care for risotto normally, but this preparation was the best I had ever had. I ate it all...something about how the broccoli stalks and seasonings were chopped and blended...wow! They have a multitude of wines by the glass and even some nice 1/2 bottle selections.

Would we go back? Likely...and we'd plan a reservation a bit better

“Two Perfect Evenings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

On a business trip in Bermuda, we frequented this place two evenings in a row. The first was with a party of 64+ people (we had the entire restaurant) with buffet stations. The second evening was just four of us and we ordered off the menu. Both evenings were spectacular. Sunset view on the patio, service, dinner, dessert, cocktails and wine were all superb. Recommendations: a Dark & Stormy or Bermuda Triangle cocktail on the patio, the pork and the filet mignon was incredibly tender and flavorful.

“outstanding view and great for sunsets”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

The setting for this restaurant is truly fantastic. Plan to go for the wonderful sunset views and ask for a window front table. While the service was a bit slow, the seafood is also very good. We were not really concerned about the slow service because we were not ready to leave anytime soon!

“Wonderfully Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

Claudio and his team were excellent (they included Lauve and Dana). The attention to detail was magnificent and could not have been outdone. We had a large party and the timing of the meal was spot on. They never missed a beat. The food was exceptional and the wine was well paired at the recommendation of the staff. We had children in our party and the staff made sure their food came out first and they were entertained.

Overall the best meal we had on the island. You cannot miss this place.

Recommendations:
Short Rib
Chocolate Cake

MUST MUST MUST GO!
