Sunday nights are limited for dining in Bermuda, but Pickeled Onion was open and had the restaurant weeks 2024 menu, so we went for it. Service was great as the place was very quiet and the food came promptly. We empanadas, tuna tartar. fish and...deserts, which were all exceptional. This was unexpected but welcomed as our past experiences here were not spectacular, just good. If this were baseball (or cricket), the chef hit the ball out of the park. Well done and a contender for top of the restaurant weeks 2024 chart.More

Came here for lunch on our first day on the island. An easy walk from the Hamilton Princess for anyone staying there. Try to sit outside on the second floor, in the covered deck area. Really a nice spot to people watch and enjoy the...views. Fish chowder was quite tasty.More

First meal in Bermuda and did not disappoint! Fish chowder was delicious and so was fish and chips. Fish tasted greasy and the batter taste and crisp couldn’t be more perfect. Our server Ben was a delight and had helpful tips so we could enjoy...our trip all the more!More

Good service but most disappointing fish dishes. Appetizer guacamole: it was alright. One order was grilled fish sandwich. We were not sure if it was fish or chicken. Tasted like sawdust. Overcooked, dry. The other order was rockfish taco. My favorite fish and I was...very hungry. Had one single bite. Again overcooked, poorly seasoned fish.More

While travelling on business I came to The Pickled Onion for dinner. The place was not empty, and, since it was a nice night, I asked for a table outside overlooking the harbor. No one at the front desk even said hello. I was given...a table outside but never felt really welcome. There was a couple of other solo diners. Maybe they got the same reception, who knows. I ordered the skirt steak and found it tough. Not the best cut of meat. Also, I asked for it medium and got it about medium rare. I have been here before on visits to Bermuda and this is the first time that I was not thrilled with the experience or the food. The outdoor deck has great views and that saved the overall experience.More

Great lunch spot. We had the Cast Iron Shrimp. Absolutely DELICIOUS! The bacon jam was amazing. We asked for extra bread to mop up the deliciousness. Next visit to Bermuda --- we're coming back.

The dinner was fine, and the drinks were fancy. And as with anything in Bermuda, the prices were equally as high rated. Let’s face it, no one comes to Bermuda, figuring they will find a deal on any restaurant or meal or drink purchase. That...aside, the food was delicious as for the drinks. A beautiful ambience, and a polite atmosphere with all the servers. We were very happy.More

I can’t figure out the great reviews - this place is Applebee’s, except at that chain restaurant they aren’t rushing you to turn the table inside of 30 minutes, and the drinks aren’t drowning. Serviceable, but not how I want to experience a $100 lunch...for two, that’s for sure. Better options abound.More

We took a chance here because of the location - it has a balcony overlooking Front Street. Unfortunately the food wasn’t that good. But more importantly the service was TERRIBLE! Our server Alexandra was miserable snob who barely spoke to us. She walked off when...I asked her for water and forced me to get my own from the bar. Then she had the nerve to show me the tip screen on her mobile cashier - even after adding an 18% automatic gratuity!? She’s not worth $1 but doesn’t care because she knows you have to pay 18% whether she serves you or not. She should be fired immediately.More

We enjoyed the food (nachos, ribs, avocado rolls, calamari, fish empanadas, fish chowder). Nachos were simple and tasty, dry ribs were damn delicious, calamari was over cooked a bit, chowder was a big hit. The drinks were ok, more juice than liquor. The service was...awful, hence the two stars. She was absolutely rude. Items were left off the list, she wasn’t helpful until the end, and she just had a poor attitude. That would keep us away from returning.More
