“Food expensive but consistently good, service SLOW if hotel is full”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012

We've eaten at Wickets twice over the past few days. Food expensive but you're at the Fairmont, but surprisingly good quality. However, on our second visit, service was slow to the point where I just about took a catnap waiting for our food to arrive 45 minutes later. It was so bad, I think they should have given a complimentary dessert or something! The hotel was full, the restaurant about 1/2 full, though more than they probably were expecting.

We have a few days left. Doubt I'll eat there again.

“Very average and expensive hotel restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012

Wickets benefits from being one of the only casual restaurants in the Fairmont hotel. The food is reasonably good. The service is friendly except slow, there is not enough staff to handle the restaurant and out of several meals which included things such as a burger or salad, never made it out under $50.

Even for Bermuda this is high priced for the type of food you are getting and the Fairmont is obviously taking advantage of being the only alternative for casual food unless you want to leave the hotel.

“Great for Pool Side eating”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

The food is average bar food but it's great if you can sit outside by the pool. I loved their mushroom burger.

“Just like any other poolside restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2012

This restaurant had pretty good food, but bad service. You would think that they get a lot of people for lunch, which they did when we went, but the kitchen could not "keep up" with the restaurant and we waited about 30-35 minutes. We also asked for bread and we had to ask about 3 times. Overall, not the best, but the food is fine if you are spending a day at the pool.
(also I am not sure if its late night . . .)
