Bermuda’s Island Flavours Run Deep

With international roots and a natural bounty from the land and sea, Bermuda’s food culture is as multi-dimensional as it is delicious. Enjoy a slice of island life with every bite or sip, and for the full experience, seek out new flavours on a foodie adventure.

Fresh catch with a twist. Creative rum cocktails. Savoury, soul-warming traditional dishes steeped in the melting pot of Bermuda’s rich heritage – a blend of British, Portuguese, African, Caribbean, and Native American influences. It all comes together on the island’s culinary table.

Sure, you’ve had seafood. But have you tasted fried wahoo on fresh-baked raisin bread, topped with coleslaw and hot sauce? Or sipped on fish chowder infused with black rum and spicy sherry peppers? Or indulged in Loquat Gold Liquor Cake? Dig in and explore the deeper flavours of Bermuda – it's just a two-hour flight from the U.S. East Coast but it tastes like another world.
