El Vino Crudo imports quality wines from around the world. The wine we represent is real, from eccentric to laser focused and refined, always sourced from growers who follow organic, biodynamic farming and wine making practices.

The plates rotate monthly, with respect to seasonality and when we feel inspired to try something new.

About the restaurant
French Quarter Bistro was opened in 2018 in the heart of Frenchtown by Ed and Amoi Foerstel due to their love of all cuisine, Cajun.

Creole is derived from the many cultures who have settled in New Orleans, including; French, Spanish, West African, Caribbean, German, Italian, and Irish. Cajun is derived from the French-speaking Acadians who settled in the bayous south of New Orleans. The influences of the French are the most prominent of both cuisines. Almost all of our Creole and Cajun dishes begin with a stock (poultry, beef, or seafood), trinity (onions, green bell peppers, celery), and a roux (blonde, brown, or dark), lending a unique flavor to our Gumbo and other dishes.

We invite you to come to taste our cuisine at French Quarter Bistro. We are not re-inventing Creole and Cajun cuisine, only sharpening it!

Armando was an amazing waiter, the food was ever better if that’s possible. We had a few hors d’oeuvres Do you remember one was called the pig when I really liked the hors d’oeuvres ( the pork belly was delicious!!!) then shared the Tomahawk! Brilliantly presented and perfectly cooked. The Tomahawk was quickly Tomagone 😂 Thanks for a great evening.

Established in 1979, La Trattoria is one of Bermuda’s longest standing restaurants and a favourite of locals and visitors alike. Located in the heart of Hamilton, it is a place to savour hearty Italian food in an unpretentious, laid-back atmosphere. Year after year, La Trattoria is recognised as best in Bermuda for their rustic, thin crust pizza and warm, kid-friendly environment, all at an extraordinarily affordable price.
Great pizza, pasta and much much more!

Restaurant is generally good but unremarkable. Service was adequate, - nothing special / didn't feel particularly welcomed. I opted for chicken parm, "extra light on the cheese", and it came smothered in cheese. I didn't complain, but I wished the server had listened better. Would I go back? Maybe, but there are so many other good choices.
