RESTAURANT OF THE WEEK
A PERSONAL REVIEW OF RESTAURANTS AROUND THE WORLD

WHITE HORSE TAVERN
ST. GEORGE, BERMUDA

This casual place sits right in front of one of the main cruise ship docks in this beautiful, historical town in St. George's Parish.  St. George itself is a treasure of well preserved history dating all the way back to the 1600s.


NOTICE THE WHITE HORSE ABOVE THE ENTRANCE TO THE TAVERN

Even though there were two cruise ships in port (you can see one of them in the background of the above shot) and even though cruisers had the option of using vouchers to dine here, we had no trouble being seated.

IMMEDIATELY TO THE RIGHT WAS A CHANNEL FULL OF FISH AND THEY LOVED BEING THROWN SCRAPS!

We started out with something that looked great on the menu - a large deep fried onion.  We figured that it would be golden brown and wonderful like the famous bloomin' onion at Outback Steakhouse here in the U.S.  We were extremely disappointed.  This thing came out half raw and extremely greasy with little if any flour batter.  The center "core" was totally raw and had not been carved into spears.  Do not order this here!  We saw other diners enjoying plain, old onion rings and they looked good.


NICE BAR FOR THE DINNER AND LATE NIGHT CROWD

For our main lunch we each ordered a White Horse burger.  It was a huge eight ounce slab of seasoned mince meat (that's what the Brits call hamburger), topped with cheese, bacon, onions, tomato and lettuce.  The burgers were quite nice.  By the way, if you have a little bun left over and you're sitting next to the water just toss it into the drink and watch the fish fight over it!

All and all this was a pleasant experience.  The tab with no alcohol came to about $48.  This was the cheapest meal we had during our stay on the island.
