If you are looking for an overpriced Applebee’s look no further! Staff was good but food was awful. We had a salad ( chickpeas,blackberries etc.)with a piece of salmon on top. Floating in oil and found 4 chickpeas in whole salad. Calamari was just ok....Someone next to us had the bow tie chicken pasta and commented on it being horrible as well. Our one salad and calamari came to $70. Better to go to Harris down the street. Excellent food and came to $110 with wine for two entrees and an appetizer. A bit surprised as thought it looked pretty expensive but actually better than most places and food is cooked perfectly.More

WE ate here twice. The first time was wonerful-which prompted our return. Second time- waitress kind of "got us-" asked if we wanted water and when we said flat, (which meant to us to have simply a glass of water) , she returned with 2...bottles and quickly opened and poured the pricey water. We had to ask several times for more "tap" water...More

Went with 4 kids and 4 adults. There is no kids menu and the waiter wasn't able to offer suggestions on smaller meals for the kids. The menu was pricey and uninspiring. The steaks were over $45, so we stuck with ribs or pasta dishes,...which were closer to $30. The drink menu wasn't great either. Limited beer selection and nothing jumped out off of the cocktail menu. The waiter forgot to bring a second glass of wine that was ordered. For the cost of the meal, was not worth it. The view from the patio was very nice.More

I've always liked the Pickled Onion and still in this Covid period it was still pleasurable. The food was good as well as the service.

Loved the caesar salad topped with a delicious piece of salmon and the calamari appetizer was the best we've had in Bermuda!

Sat alone on the second deck. Good view of the harbor and the breeze was nice. Sanitizer at hostess stand and table. Everyone wore masks and nobody was seated near me. Logged my contact tracing information. The nacho's were novel. Pepperjack, Parm and cheddar. Unfortunately...no jalapenos. Rockfish taco's were also good. Not great, but very good. I don't think they are worth the $, but I don't know the going rate for Rockfish.More

Now that the cruiseships are not dominating the view (and seats), restaurants (and their patrons) along Front Street can now enjoy the beautiful harbour of Hamilton and surrounds. The staff are serious about COVID safety, remain positive and welcoming, and the food is delicious. Our...repeated server (Romanian?) was very helpful and friendly. Thank you for everything...hope to see you soon.More

We don't come here very often but will have to start doing so. The menu has been shortened but still plenty of choice. Our server was excellent, Alexander, always right on the ball. The food was good. They weren't busy which was a shame as...it is a nice location overlooking the harbour in Hamilton.More

Absolutely horrible experience last night. The restaurant was nowhere near being full but the service was nonexistent. It took 40 minutes for our appetizers to arrive and when they did they were cold. Note that means they didn't take 40 minutes to cook but 40...minutes for our server to bring them to us. The flatbread pizza was hard as a rock. The calamari cold and lifeless. I needed a new straw for my drink (a nasty mango daiquiri that tasted like watered down orange juice) since the flimsy paper one had become soggy but our server never arrived again to ask if we needed anything, mind you she made multiple trips to another table. I guess they were more important. To make matters worse she was in plainclothes so I don't even believe she was a regular server but perhaps a manager? After the awful food and service I then physically had to find her to get the check to pay and leave! Pay for food and service I was not happy with nor could complain about as she had disappeared once again! I can understand establishments are just now reopening after covid-19 closures but if you are not ready to reopen or short-staffed then DO NOT reopen. In these current times people do not want to waste their hard-earned money on abysmal service and food.More

Up stairs above the busy Hamilton harbor front, along with other eateries, this place has a lovely menu. Typical island prices. Yum!
