Dining with Kids in Bermuda
Kids are people, too, and very hungry little people on a regular basis. Little-big eaters are usually banished to a far-flung corner away from all the action (which they'll then have to find, leaving a spaghetti trail behind), or forced to dine in fast-food restaurants for fear they'll actually express themselves. Well, Bermuda has no fast-food chains, except for a lone Kentucky Fried Chicken in Hamilton, but little diners and their big companions will have no trouble finding familiar foods in welcoming settings here.
Harbour Nights. Harbour Nights festival in Hamilton (Wednesday evenings May through September) lets kids eat on their feet. Choose fish sandwiches, patties, wraps, sweets, and more from booths and kiosks along Front, Reid, and Queen Streets.
Paraquet. Rather than just ordering a hamburger and fries, let your child watch it being cooked at the Paraquet. This American-style diner's low counter with stools is ideal for little ones to watch what's going on in the kitchen. The large selection of kids' food and the well-priced menu make this a great spot for families. 68 South Shore Rd., Paget Parish, PG04. 441/236–9742.
Pizza House. Youngsters love being creative and eating with their hands, so let them have the best of both worlds by creating their own pizza; head here to see who can come up with the tastiest combination of toppings. Especially hungry kids will love the double cheeseburger or jumbo hot dog. 441/293–5700.
Shelly Bay. Bermuda has the ideal picnic venue to keep the younger set entertained all day long. Shelly Bay in Hamilton Parish has a huge children's play area right next to its sandy beach, so little ones won't have time to be bored. Grab a bite to eat from the beach snack bar or bring a picnic, and prepare for a fun—and probably tiring—day by the ocean.
Warwick Lanes. Let the kids knock 'em down with a family bowling challenge at Warwick Lanes. Between games, pick off the menu at the on-site Last Pin restaurant. Kids' meals at the bowling alley in Middle Road, Warwick, include all the favorites: pizza, hamburger, chicken nuggets, and french fries. Hill View, 47 Middle Rd., Warwick. 441/236–5290.
