You may have to seek this little place out as it’s tucked away off Front Street on Chancery Lane but it’s well worth the effort. Cozy, intimate atmosphere and great food. Highly recommended.

The food and drinks are very reasonable. I mean a bucket of corona for $25 that’s good for Bermuda especially in Hamilton 😊

Another hidden gem just off Front Street. Not known by many but the simple and well designed menu is made up of food from the mutual kitchen of the more upmarket and expensive Port O' Call, another great choice bye the way. Never been dispointed.

Came upon this restaurant on a side street/alley off of Front St. Menu changes daily. We had a beautifully done swordfish with fingerling potatoes on a fennel/red pepper sauce that was perfect. Soup, hummus and even the bread was also perfect. Price was so much...More

This is a great place. Food is good, but portion sizes seem to be decreasing. For dessert I ordered a some sort of chocolate mouse cake and it was all of 1" by 2". We had a good laugh at that.

We liked the European atmosphere and smaller portions. The vegetarian shepherd's pie was delicious. The servers were polite and friendly. The menu covered the bases with beef (flank steak), fish (wahoo), chicken and pasta. It was simple but with a decent variety.
