We recommend Coconuts, not only for its scenic vista, but also for its sense of being tightly woven into the fabric of Bermuda's complicated social pecking order. Enjoying a surprising amount of favor among long-time residents of the island, it's set between high cliff rocks and a sandy pink beach on the island's mostly residential south coast. Alfresco dining here is most romantic, although those breezy nights tend to cool your food before you've finished it.
The restaurant is based within an open-sided dining room that's partially paneled with varnished cedar. Lunch is nothing special -- the usual, burgers, salads, sandwiches, and the like. But at night, the chefs strut their stuff, offering a set menu (which changes daily) full of variety, flavor, taste, and scope, and presented with flair. Freshly grown produce is served with Cajun and West Indian spices, for a "taste of the islands." We can't guarantee what you'll get on any given night here, but the scope is wide enough to appeal to most diners -- though if you're a picky eater, you'd better call ahead and check.
