“What an experience.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

Arrive before dark and have dinner then enjoy the view after dark. Also it is a great place to take photos. Have your cabbie handy for the ride back.

“Food between good and OK, service rushed and indifferent.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012

Superb location and beautiful dining room. The atmosphere was bustling and felt fairly high-end. The food was fine although hard to judge given how spoiled we are by the surfeit of incredible food on our doorstep in London.

What let this place down was the staff. Poor English, lack of engagement, we had one waiter who took one drink order and rushed off before taking my husband's. Another waiter brought a different wine to the one we'd ordered. The pudding was very sub standard and our complaint was met with a poor response. Eventually we elicited an apology and removal from the bill.

If only it weren't so expensive we'd have found it all fine.

“Quaint dining room with great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

I ordered the Veal Ossobucco and it was FANTASTIC! If I had the opportunity to go back, I'd definitely order that again. My boyfriend got the fantasia pizza, and unfortunately it was not good.

Gibb's Lighthouse is absolutely beautiful at night. I'd definitely recommend checking it out while you're in Bermuda. We sat inside since there was a private event going on outside. The dining room is quaint and nicely decorated. If we would have had the opportunity I would have sat outside.

“Very Nice and Casual”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012 via mobile

The Resturant was very nice and casual. The view and ambiance was the best. The food was good but an average menu.

“Fine”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012

All the other TripAdvisor reviews seemed to have it bang on... GREAT view (would suggest vising during the day rather than at night, as the windows in the restaurant are small, so no view once you get inside)... food was fine, but nothing spectacular, service was adequate. Note: restaurant is somewhat dark, crowded and noisy, so if you're going with elderly people they probably won't be able to read their menus or hear what you or the servers are saying! Would probably be a lovely place for lunch
