“Great food, questionable service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2013

Honestly, it's hard to give this restaurant only an average rating. The food is excellent. But the service put a bad taste in our mouth. We don't drink, so we didn't order any beverages. As soon as our waiter realized that, he essentially ignored us for the rest of the night. At the end of the meal, the manager came up to ask if everything was all right. We told him we were waiting for our check. The waiter eventually came back, placed the check on our table, and left without saying a word. He barely even looked at us. If this restaurant wants to earn our business again, it needs to show that it treats customers equally -- even those who don't run up a huge tab with alcohol.

“Good but not great!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2013

Has potential to be a great place, but attention to detail is lacking. The menu choices were good but when the food came it didn't live up to expectations. I ordered scallops and was served prawns! Whilst they apologised for this, no attempt was made to rectify the order or to offer any compensation for it. Service was slow and not very attentive. All in all - I can think of better places to spend hard earned money.

“Good but nothing extraordinary”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2013

This is a decent restaurant located approximately half a mile from the Gibbs Lighthouse and the Fairmont Southampton Hotel. We went there at approximately 7 on a Saturday night and we had no problem getting a table that overlooked the water.

The menu is relatively extensive when compared to other restaurants on the Island. The menu includes sea food, pub food, pasta, curry dishes, and they also have a full sushi menu. A bit weird considering this is a pub but the place was buzzing with Asian waiters and waitresses. That may explain it. The prices are comparable to the other restaurants. Service was good and the food was good. Nothing stood out as extraordinary. A good place to go if you are tired of the restaurants at the Fairmont.

“Henry's Never Disappoints”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013

As a repeat visitor to Bermuda Saturday Night at Henry's is a Must !! Great service, great food and attentive staff.

Bishnu & Sully always go out of their way to make the evening perfect. On this past trip on Aug 31st the Food was Awesome. it's always good but this time was outstanding. The special Sushi we had was delicious and the Filet Mignon was like butter !!

After Dinner, the party just gets started !! DJ Uncle; the best on the island; starts playing his tunes and the frenzy starts as locals & tourists alike come together to dance the night away...It's fantastic....All ages are made welcome

“English charm in Bermuda”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013

This is a really nice restaurant. It's not very convenient if you are staying near Hamilton but if you are near the Southwest part of the island this is a must. They have a great selection on the menu and the food is great. It's located high on a bluff so you have great views of the ocean. The service is excellent and the place it self is very nice. You feel like you are in a typical English restaurant in London. This was my second visit and enjoyed it both times. I think you will like it too.
