Glistening teak and models of victorious America's Cup yachts give this fine restaurant a nautical theme. Each dish is beautifully presented, matching the clientele, which is made up of Bermuda's elite. Known as one of Bermuda's best restaurants, it changes its menu every season, and the chef works with as much local produce as possible. Appetizers of smoked salmon, carved tableside, or Hudson Valley foie gras with a port sauce will send the taste buds soaring. But it's
the entrées that really shine. You might have pork chops with butternut squash gratin or dover sole meunière with citrus and caper beurre noisette (brown butter). For dessert, try the black forest cake or the timeless English trifle.

Very elegant with outstanding service and well prepared food. The menu is very limited so ask to see it at the Princess before commiting to a reservation.

Had a good meal here. The service was 5 star for Bermuda, but in the states it would be a 3 star establishment. A stickler on men wearing a jacket at all times. My guests wife was cold, he offered her his jacket, and the server made him put his back on and the server brought her a mens jacket from the back.The food is mediocre,presentation was outstanding, wine list was limited, but it was a good dining experience.

Not many restaurants succeed at being both formal/elegant and friendly, but the Newport Room succeeds. Wonderful presentations! Be sure to make a reservation as soon as you arrive on the island. This will be the Big Deal dinner of your trip.
