Fodor's Review

In a house that dates from 1652, Tom Moore's Tavern has a colorful past, thanks to the Irish poet for whom it's named. Tom Moore visited friends here frequently in 1804 and caused a scandal by writing odes to a local woman who was already married. Today, fireplaces, casement windows, and shipbuilders' cedar joinery capture a sense of history that in no way interferes with the fresh, light, and innovative cuisine. Bermuda lobster (in season), and grilled beef tenderloin with asparagus and zucchini gratin stand out. You've got to try the fish chowder; it's warmed and completed with sherry peper sauce and Gosling's rum right at the table. Soufflés are always excellent, as is the chef's pastry. Eat in one of five cozy rooms; by special arrangement, groups may dine alfresco on a terrace that overlooks Walsingham Bay.

Tom Moore's Tavern Review

Stuffy, stuffy, stuffy. Appetizers were very good, entrees overcooked, service arrogant...a recommended glass of wine to accompany the foie gras was not brought with the foie and by the time we managed to flag down someone who knew what we meant, (our waiter was ignoring us and there were only two other parties in the restaurant) the foie had gone lukewarm. P.S: the half-glass of wine ended up being $28)

Est!!! Est!!! Est!!!

In the 12th century, a bishop sent his attendant out ahead of him on a trip to sample wines and mark EST (it is) on the door of taverns where they served good wine. He discovered a tavern in Montefiascone where they served such fine wine that he marked Est Est Est over the door. The bishop agreed and spent the rest of his life in Montefiascone. Tom Moore's is the Montefiascone of Bermuda. We visit Bermuda for two weeks every year and visit Tom

Moore's at least twice every trip. Even though it is a bit out of the way and a bit pricey, it is worth every penny. The service, the food, the atmosphere all combine to make it superb.
