There aren’t enough words to describe this fish sandwich. I have been dreaming about it since I got home. This will be my first stop when I return to the island!

This is a local takeaway spot. Convoluted down narrow streets and up a steep hill to get to, but so worth it. Parking can be a challenge. Friendly staff, quick service, and yummy food. They only take cash. We go the iconic large fish sandwich...for $14.95. Big enough for 2 people to share, but I'm greedy so we got 2. Fish is swine and you get lots of piece. The raisin bread is amazing I could eat it alone.More

It is no doubt one of the best fish sandwich but it is away from the city centre. Just a take away so no place to sit outside like a park. Since it is located in a downtown the bus service is also infrequent. The...sandwich is great but didn't have the courage to go again during our stay.More

It really is the world's best fish sandwich. My son and I rented a Twizzy just so we could drive there. Well worth the trip, can't wait to go back again.

Amazing fish sandwich! Better than I could have imagined. Cannot wait to go back. If you can only get one fish sandwich on the island, this is THE ONE!

It’s true, this is the best fish sandwich we’ve ever had. And, it was worth walking from Front Street to get it. Keep in mind that this location is takeout only. We ordered our food and then sat outside under a tree to eat. Not...fancy - but the sandwich and fries were incredible. We’re trying to figure out how to get back there before we return home.More

Yes, it's a little tough to find, and I'm thankful that a Bermudan driver offered me a ride up the hill on which this take out sits. And it might be worthwhile to call first: although I arrived during "open" hours, the place had run...out of fish, and I had to wait a half hour while they thawed some more. But the wait worth it: the fried swai was so bountiful and delicious that I barely touched the fries. Swai, you say? Yes, and if you're heart is set on fresh wahoo, it's wise to call ahead, as supply of wahoo--or any other fresh fish--can vary from day to day. I had no complaints with the well prepared swai. Realize, too, that the place has no seating, though the staff kindly let me stand at the counter to consume my meal while it was raining outside. Would I return? Absolutely, and one could argue that you really haven't experienced all of Bermuda until you''e eaten here.More

Just go. Try it. Make yourself get there. It was wonderful. several locals said this was one of the best fish sandwiches on the island. It was. It's big enough for two people to enjoy one. Cash only, no card. Enjoy!

This was our second visit to Art Mel’s. The fish sandwich is absolutely out of this world. I had 5 fish sandwiches during this trip to Bermuda. To me, Art Mel’s is still the best.

Okay - if you would have told me I would be addicted to a fish sandwich on raisin bread with coleslaw on it about a month ago I would have thought you were crazy, but WOW. This is a DELICIOUS sandwich. I truly enjoyed every...bite!! They are about $14 each, and there is no seating inside the business, yet somehow none of these things mattered once we started eating! It's off the beaten path so if you need a way to get there check out A+ Transport Services, we utilized their services and did not regret it! We even got a little education about the neighborhood on top of door to door service.More

Ok … so we all heard the hype. Since we usually cruise to Bermuda and end up at the Dockyard, it’s a bit difficult to get here even after taking the ferry to Hamilton. But on this trip with my mother, we opted to take...a sightseeing tour in a taxi for her to see the island. So, a stop at Art Mel’s was finally within reach and it did NOT disappoint!! Our driver was nice enough call ahead to order us 2 sandwiches (with coke slaw, lettuce, tomato and hot sauce) along with an order of large fries (which we totally did not need). After picking up the sandwiches (a bit pricey at $14 plus extras - totaling $38 cash only) and some ginger beer (across the way from small market) … we made our way to some picnic tables in the shade across from the aquarium in Flatts Village. These sandwiches were HUGE! My DS was able to finish one on his own .. as he’s really a grown man at 24. But my mom and I shared the other … and it was still difficult to do. We barely had room for any fries and they were barely touched. We all agreed that these were the BEST fish sandwiches we’ve ever had! IMHO … the thick raisin bread was what sent it over the top! Looking forward to going back and bringing DH too!!More

Off the main path is this secret thst seems to be local favorite ... no place to sit, no washrooms, this is a true to go place. Fish sandwich is excellent. We ordered with hot sauce and only complaint is it needed a bit more...spice. But check it out for a to go lunch onthe beach.More

My wife and I have visited Bermuda several times and had been aware of Art Mel's for a long time. The trouble is, this place isn't in the middle of Hamilton. It's on the outskirts and not easy to get to, except by car. Well,...if you know Bermuda, the primary modes of transportation for tourists, like us, are the public methods (bus, ferry or taxi). You can rent scooters too, but I'm not fond of taking my life into my own hands. Now, we're seasoned bus and ferry users, but the cost of a taxi in Bermuda is too high to satisfy our curiosity. For while I love seafood, my wife doesn't. Spending a bunch on a taxi to a fish sandwich place that only one of can enjoy wasn't worth the expense. I've had the excellent fish sandwich at Wahoo's in St George, because we were able to take the ferry. That all said, we tried a new form of transportation on our last visit in 2019 (pre-Covid), the electric cars! We rented one for two of the three days our ship was docked at the Dockyard and finally got to Art Mel's! Its a GREAT fish sandwich! The place is a hole in the wall, with zero interior and exterior seating for dining. Basically, you place your order and take it somewhere else to eat. Just don't try to eat the sandwich without help, especially on a hot day! That was my mistake. Once we got our food (the signature fish sandwich for me, chicken tenders & fries for my wife and a couple of cans of soda), we hopped back in our little electric car and drove over to Ft Hamilton to find a picnic table. It was a lovely, HOT day. Given the heat of the day, I was barely able to finish half the sandwich during our little picnic. I wrapped the rest up and eventually finished the whole thing before we got back to the Dockyard, but, I was stuffed and passed on dinner that night. So, was Art Mel's worth it? yes, but you'll need to have an easy way to get to the place and either have a huge appetite or someone to share the sandwich.More
