- Cuisines: Continental, European, British
If you step inside the local lighthouse, you'll find a contemporary-looking and colorful dining room serving meals which evoke Bermuda and Britain alike. It's a handy place if you're touring the south shore of Southampton Parish. After you've climbed the winding steps leading up to the famous Gibbs Hill Lighthouse, you'll have worked up an appetite. Begin with such starters as warm Camembert cheese topped with a mix of wild berries or salmon-stuffed crepes. A vegetable grill is served with fettuccine noodles in a light hoisin dressing, or else you can order a mango, mozzarella, and walnut salad on a bed of fresh greens. Lots of clients opt for one of the fish sandwiches or perhaps the curried lamb pie or the codfish croquettes. A bar in the corner chugs out impressive numbers of both frozen smoothies and martinis. In the afternoon you can enjoy any number of specialty teas, including mango apple and strawberry. The owner, Heidi Cowen, is the granddaughter of the last lighthouse keeper who lived here in the 1960s. She too lived in the lighthouse with her grandparents.
