“Great food, relaxing place.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

Very chill place. Good Dark and Stormy's. Great view of a bay if you sit outside. Food pricey, just like anywhere in Bermuda, but definitely worth it.

“Lunch with friends”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2013

A beautiful day so were able to sit outside and enjoy the view and the weather. All of us ordered the fish sandwich special. They were enormous but delicious. Staff were friendly and everything seem to run smoothly. An enjoyable lunch.

“Average food.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

was expecting more local dishes on menu. Sadly nothing exciting.
Deck area looked tired and staff not as friendly as some Bermudain restaurants.

“Local, authentic ... GO”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2013 via mobile

When ever I have friends visiting Bermuda, Black Horse Tavern is my No.1 lunch spot.

Sitting outside on the porch enjoying the fantastic view and a cool breeze on a hot summer's day is well worth the drive out to St. David's.

The fish sandwich is ALWAYS made with local fish, usually wahoo. There are very few places on the island that serve ONLY local fish on their menu. Get yourself the fish sandwich w/ toasted raisin bread, lettuce, tomato, tartar sauce and a little hot sauce.

While you are at it, enjoy a very good 'Yellow Bird Cocktail' or two. After a lunch at Black Horse you will want to find the nearest beach (Clear Water Beach), find some shade a take a nap!

Local, fresh, good food what else do you want?

“Fresh Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2013

Having been to Bermuda many times and visited The Black Horse can I just say how well Heather and Gypsy are doing! A new Chef, new staff and the food is absolutely amazing ! The conch starter with chilli dip is out of this world ! Gypsey catches most of the fish himself with the best rock fish and wahoo on the island . There is something for everyone including mac and cheese with fresh lobster, the best and freshest fish sandwich I have ever tasted, you can taste the sea ! We sat outside in the sunshine with the sea only yards away with the boats bobbing around in the water, the 9 of us didnt want to leave. We tasted everything on the menu between us from the conch curry starter to the huge and beautifully presented lobster. Heather and staff were so attentive altho it was so busy they never left us without a dark and stormy, so thank you Heather, Gypsy and staff for the most wonderful day out with my daughter Staci and her amazing friends. I wish you good luck and will see you all again soon.
