About
This is what vacation dining is all about. A delicious meal enjoyed in the open air as the soft tropical breeze wafts by and colourful boats glide across the water. The wonderful menu at 1609 Bar & Restaurant is a masterpiece of casual elegance, the cocktails are amazing, and the uninterrupted harbour views are spectacular. 1609 takes its name from the year that the Sea Venture shipwrecked on Bermuda’s shores and the first colony was born. We celebrate that sea-going spirit in our menu, which stars fresh-off-the-boat seafood: ceviche, golden fried shrimp, creamy stone crab dip, fish tacos and much more, alongside laid-back favourites like nachos, fresh fish, burgers and salads.

As this was my third time dining at this establishment, I knew what to expect. We were there celebrating my oldest son’s graduation from The Berkeley Institute in Bermuda. His favorite item on the menu is their Fruit Punch which he would rave about almost...everyday since his last visit. Our waitress, Florina, was very polite and prompt with her service and the food, as always, was outstanding!! They sat us next to the window, so the view of the sunset was breathtaking, which could be seen from any seat in the house. I definitely recommend 1609 for any upcoming event, family dinner, or evening for two… you won’t regret it!More

We chose this restaurant for our first dinner when we arrived in Bermuda because I had read that it is only open from Thursday till Sunday and we arrived on a Sunday. The information I read online was outdated. This restaurant is now open every...day I believe.it has large windows, providing great water views. Our server was excellent, as was our meal.More

Great restaurant within Hamilton Princess Hotel. Fabulous views over the Sound. The food was very good with a great atmosphere and very attentive staff. Another restaurant on the must do list when holidaying in Bermuda

I usually don’t like dining alone but my experience at the 1609 Restaurant was a pleasant exception, in large part to the wonderful service by Lloyd and Olga my servers. Lloyd went out of his way to find me a table and was very engaging...in conversation, making me feel not so alone. Olga made excellent recommendations about my menu choices and provided superb service with a real personal touch.More

The staff was amazing. The food was great. We were guests at the Hamilton Princess in late May 2022. I made my reservation via email and they were great in responding, and accommodating my request for celebrating my husbands birthday. It was a beautiful view...by the windows and a lovely evening. The ambience is amazing. Highly recommend.More

Food and drinks were great. A nice twist on mexican food. The charred corn salad was excellent. But what we really loved was the Palomas - a tequila based drink with grapefruit soda. Made so nicely - perfect by the pool too.

1609 has the best food & drinks, the best atmosphere, and the best service (thank you Lloyd)! We stayed at the Hamilton Princess hotel for 5 nights and ate at 1609 every single day. We will be back!
