2018. July 21. Nearly half of Bermuda’s eating-out spots have been awarded “A” grades after inspectors checked their food and hygiene practices. A scoring programme published on the Government’s website lists 203 establishments, with 92 of those achieving the top grade. The Environmental Health section’s “grades on licences” scheme was introduced last year, with the online publication of rates for restaurants, cafés, supermarkets, bars, bakeries and delicatessens. It shows the results of food premises’ annual inspections in letter grades — A to D. After the unannounced visits, the 2018 list shows 86 eateries secured a B and five ranked C. None were marked D but 19 establishments were “approved”, which is understood to be a grade for new premises when they are licensed before a follow-up inspection takes place when the business is open and operating. One remained blank on the list and a government spokesman said yesterday it was among 27 establishments with grades yet to be confirmed, with these expected to be finalized by the end of the month. Last year, when only 180 eateries were listed as a phased roll-out of the programme took place, 77 were awarded As and 88 received Bs, with the remainder either Cs, approved, satisfactory or upgraded. Among those to improve their ranking from a B to an A was fast-food outlet KFC on Queen Street in the City of Hamilton. Ginene Haslam, its general manager, told how the importance of food safety is instilled in staff through online and hands-on training. Yesterday, she said the grade improvement was the result of unnecessary equipment being removed from the site. Ms Haslam added: “It’s good for the public to know where they are eating and that they’re eating somewhere safe. I don’t think it affects us very much because we are very focused on it anyway but it probably inspires some businesses to do better.” Long-established seafood favourite The Lobster Pot, also in the city, saw its grade fall from a B in 2017 to a C this year after an inspection in March. Owner Lynn Bardgett said nothing has changed at the restaurant in its 45-year history and claimed her licensing certificate did not explain why the rating slumped. She added: “They write down what we need to do, the different things that need to be addressed, those things are done.” Among them, she said, were more regular and thorough deep cleaning and ensuring that food can be stored in a refrigerator below 40F. Ms Bardgett said the issues were largely “the normal things that we do day in, day out” and continued: “Like everybody dealing with the public, we want to make sure that everything is done correctly. Sometimes there are slip-ups but at the end of the night, I make sure that everything is wiped down and cleaned.” Chris Garland, chairman of the Chamber of Commerce’s restaurant division, told how it was a great achievement for busy Bermudian venues, including spots on Front Street such as The Pickled Onion, to retain top grades. He said: “The volume of people some of those do ... for them to keep A and B, it’s a testament that something positive is being done. Between visits you can build up a lot of dirt.” Voicing his support for the list’s publication, he added: “Anything that publicly displays information usually keeps people on their toes. It tells you exactly what you want to know as a consumer and restaurateurs take it in the respect of, be careful what can happen if you don’t get a good grade.” An explanation accompanying the list online states that it allows people to see how well the island’s food establishments “are maintaining sanitary standards in accordance with the Public Health (Food) Regulations 1950”. Environmental Health officers score businesses on items such as temperature control of food, personal hygiene practices, protective clothing for staff and vermin control. A 100-point scale is used and violations result in a deduction, with a greater points tally resulting in a better grade. Anything below 70 points means a D grade, which would usually mean “urgent action or consideration of closure”. A Ministry of Health spokesman said: “The list includes all food establishments in Bermuda except those which only sell pre-packed foods as these are very low risk.” He added: “Bermuda enjoys a good selection of quality foods for sale to the public. Ensuring the safety of our food and the highest standards of hygiene in our food establishments is a key priority for the Department of Health. In order to enhance consumer confidence in our food establishments and to encourage those establishments to continually improve their hygiene standards, last year the system of displaying grades on licences was introduced. These licences must be displayed at establishments. In this way potential customers can know before they decide where to eat, what the standard of hygiene was at the last inspection carried out by Environmental Health Officers. The Department would encourage everyone to look at the website when deciding where to go. We hope that this in turn will encourage proprietors of establishments to always put hygiene at the top of their priorities.”
2017. January 9. Environmental health officers are working to put “scores on doors” for every restaurant, café and bar in Bermuda. The scheme is to be implemented “within the next year”, according to Jennifer Attride-Stirling, permanent secretary at the Ministry of Health. She shared the plan with this newspaper after we made a public access to information request for the health and safety “grades” given to restaurants in Bermuda. Our request was turned down by the Department of Health’s information officer on the grounds that retrieving the records would disrupt or interfere with the work of the department and such records were exempt because they contained commercial, confidential and personal information. Dr Attride-Stirling reviewed that decision, at our request, and upheld the information officer’s refusal, concluding that “on balance, the public interest is better served by non-disclosure”. But she revealed: “The Department of Health supports the establishment of a publicly available ‘scores on doors’ scheme for food and beverage establishments and is taking steps to implement it within the next year. Fair application of such a scheme will require that: establishments know in advance that inspections will result in scores that will be put in the public domain; the inspection system methodically applies criteria to derive the scores; scores be attributed systematically to every establishment inspected; and that the scores be regularly maintained and published.” This newspaper’s Pati request was made with the aim of publishing a list of all restaurants and their most recent grades, similar to the inspection lookup tool offered by NYC Health. The New York version enables members of the public to search a database and retrieve health inspection results for each of New York City’s 24,000 restaurants before deciding where to eat. In Bermuda, it is estimated there are between 150 and 200 restaurants, cafés and bars. Phil Barnett, president of Island Restaurant Group, said he would not have a problem with a “scores on doors” scheme for the island. “It wouldn’t be different to many other jurisdictions,” he said. “That wouldn’t be necessarily something we’d be upset with. If it’s coming down the pipe, it’s coming down the pipe. We get inspected every single year and, particularly if there is an issue, we reach out to them [environmental health officers]. We care very much about the safety of our clientele. I can understand how some other restaurants may find that a little concerning.” Mr Barnett said pests were an issue in Bermuda and restaurants would want the opportunity to deal with temporary infestations before being awarded a public score. “Something could break out one day and four days later, it’s solved,” he said. Dr Attride-Stirling said that the grading of restaurants was not a “standardised part of the current inspection regime so scores have not been given consistently to every establishment or recorded on the inspection report”. For that reason, she said, the Pati request was denied on the grounds that the record requested did not exist in full. The other valid reasons for non-disclosure, according to Dr Attride-Stirling, were that inspection reports were filed by street address and the Ministry of Health did not have the manpower to retrieve them for every restaurant and that releasing incomplete and dated records could “potentially prejudice the credibility and authority” of the Department of Health.
2016. October 22. Environmental health officials have refused to reveal the health and safety “grades” given to every restaurant in Bermuda. The information was requested by The Royal Gazette under the Public Access to Information Act but the Department of Health’s information officer denied our application after consultation with Susan Hill Davidson, the acting Chief Environmental Health Officer, on four grounds. This newspaper sought the information in order to publish a list of all restaurants and their most recent grades, similar to the inspection lookup tool offered by NYC Health. The New York version enables members of the public to search a database and retrieve health inspection results for each of New York City’s 24,000 restaurants before deciding where to eat. In Bermuda, it is estimated there are between 150 and 200 food and beverage premises. The Department of Health said in its refusal letter that to comply with our request would, “by reason of the nature of the records requested, require the retrieval and examination of such records [and] cause a substantial and unreasonable interference with or disruption of the other work of the public authority”. Information officer Verlina Bishop wrote that complying with the request would require pulling the inspection records of each individual file of food and drink establishments. “The files are maintained by street address and are not filed according to food and beverage establishments,” she said. “The environmental health section of the Department of Health does not have the manpower to review and compile the records requested.” Other reasons given for the refusal to disclose information were that the records contained personal, commercial and confidential information, exempt from disclosure. The Pati Act lists a series of exemptions which allow public authorities to refuse to grant a request, including on administrative grounds. But public authorities can only rely on that exemption, where retrieval of the records would be too onerous, if they have offered to help the requester amend their request. No such offer was made in this case. An exemption can apply where personal information is involved, though the Act says personal information does not include any information relating to any “discretionary benefit of a financial nature, including the granting of a licence or permit, conferred on an individual by a public authority, including the name of the individual and the exact nature of the benefit”. Restaurants in Bermuda are licensed by the environmental health section of the Department of Health, based on inspections carried out by officers to check for hygienic conditions and operations. They monitor food and beverage importation, storage, preparation and sale and they ensure food is fit for human consumption by sampling milk, frozen desserts, other foods and drinks, and inspecting locally slaughtered meat. The Pati legislation includes an exemption for commercial information and states records can be withheld where disclosure “would have, or could reasonably expect to have, an adverse effect on the commercial interests of any person to whom the record relates”. The exemption for information received in confidence states that “a record shall be disclosed if disclosure is in the public interest”. Ms Bishop wrote: “The records requested pertain to the business of food and beverage establishments, which are private businesses. The information gathered is for regulatory and compliance purposes and [it] does not serve the public interest to disclose to an unrelated third party.” She said a restaurant’s grading was not always recorded on an inspection report as it was an internal tool, used for an incentive initiative called the Mayor’s Awards, some time ago. “The Mayor’s Awards have not been held in several years,” Ms Bishop wrote. “The grading is not something that is publicized and there is no policy or law requiring notifying the public of a grading.” She said an inspection report was a tool for environmental officers to use to determine if restaurants were complying with health and safety standards and whether improvements were needed. “It is a snapshot, reflective on the day the inspector makes the inspection,” Ms Bishop added. “If corrective action is required, the inspector will notify the establishment in writing regarding improvements required. Following a site inspection, the inspectors do not give a grade externally. A record is maintained of the number of food premises inspected, not a compiled record of the grades recorded on the inspection reports.” In New York, the health department conducts unannounced annual inspections of restaurants and each violation of a regulation gets a certain number of points. According to NYC Health’s website, “at the end of the inspection, the inspector totals the points, and this number is the restaurant’s inspection score — the lower the score, the better the grade”. Sharing the restaurant-grading system with the public has not been without controversy, with critics claiming it is unfair on businesses. But Michael Bloomberg said in 2013, when he was mayor, that it had helped drive down salmonella cases. This newspaper intends to appeal the decision of the information officer to the head of the authority, as is the right of any requester.
Since 2011 all restaurants have been required to pay a Bermuda Government-legislated Food Establishment Licence Fee. It has made the cost of restaurant eating appreciably more expensive. The fee changes were approved by Members of Parliament and Senators and also apply to bakeries, catering establishments, food manufacturers, food stores and delis, refreshment shops and restaurants. A sliding scale is in place meaning businesses with larger numbers of customers have to pay more. The licensing fees charged by the Department of Health are set by legislation, the Government Fees Regulations. The licensing and inspection of food service facilities is a key public health function carried out by the Department of Health. The process helps to ensure the quality and safety of the food served to the public, and the current fees reflect the cost of providing the service to the public. Any complaints from locals or visitors about what they eat at any Bermuda restaurant, or any suspected accidental food poisoning arising from eating there are dealt with by the Bermuda Government's Department of Environmental Health, an agency of the Department of Health.
American Fast Food restaurants. None, except a Bermuda majority-owned franchised KFC. There are no Bermuda outlets of Papa John's, Subway, Little Caesar, Dunkin Donuts, Pizza Hut, Wendy's, Domino's Pizza, Taco Bell, Starbucks, Burger King or McDonald's or their British or Canadian or European equivalents.

Only one has a toilet for the disabled.
Early Bird dinners. When offered, Good value for those willing to eat early dinners (5:30 to 6:30 pm).
Food and its origin. Unless specifically stated as Bermudian or local, assume 100% of restaurant food is imported, most from afar, with some food pre-packaged specifically for restaurants.

The impartial basic list below indicates whether the restaurant is at a resort hotel, small hotel, cottage colony or independent premises. Reservations are recommended for dinner. Prices are much more if they include alcoholic drinks. The major reason all beer, wine and other liquor are so expensive is because of a huge Bermuda Government import duty.

|Shelly Bay Beach House||Coming||2017.
February 7. The operators of Shelly Bay Beach House hope to have the
facility up and running in time for the summer despite complicated
structural challenges with the building. Renovations have begun on
the waterfront Hamilton Parish property, which will include a fully
licensed restaurant and bar with water sports and beach facilities, as
well as expanded parking in the existing eastern lot. Tom Steinhoff, of
Shelly Bay Beach House Ltd, anticipates that he will spend more on the
facility than the $1m originally estimated in June 2015 due to
structural challenges including rusting steel supports in the walls and
wood rot in the roof. However, he plans to have the venue open in time
for the summer — at the earliest June — and said that up to 20 new
jobs could be created once it is completed. Outlining some of the
ongoing plans, Mr Steinhoff said: “We want to improve the layout a
little bit — it will be the same size; we are just changing the shape
of the roof. “We will have a covered patio so we are able to do indoor
and outdoor dining. The outdoor patio will be mostly covered and will
have retractable walls so we can close it on bad weather days. We had to
spend more on the structure of the building but I think the end result
will be fantastic. We are shooting for June but the reality is we may
come up against some more hurdles and challenges with the construction.
We are taking it back to a clean palette so we should be able to make
some progress soon. Our spending has gone up a bit but we are certainly
still hoping to do the water sports like the kayaks and paddle boards.
We hope to represent some local dishes to give it a local flair — some
good local seafood. We will have entertainment on the weekends such as
solo artists — a brunch atmosphere with music. We are looking to hire
about 20 people and we are certainly looking for Bermudian staff.”
Original plans for the facility sparked controversy due to the inclusion
of a new parking lot near the existing playground but that element of
the plan was shelved by the developer. Some concerns have since been
voiced about the selling of alcohol near the public playground but Mr
Steinhoff does not envisage that being a problem. He said: “We don’t
intend on having alcohol near the playground. People take their own
alcohol down to the beach all the time. We will be serving responsibly
so I don’t see any trouble with it.” Speaking about the opportunity
the new venue presents, Mr Steinhoff added: “I think it is good that
people are utilizing Bermuda’s waterfront more. It is a great asset to
the island and we should really take advantage of it. I think it is good
to have more stuff going on the beach. We are excited to bring new
amenities to the area, clean up the eyesore of the building and make it
into something successful.”
2016. May 28. Plans to turn a building at Shelly Bay into a new restaurant have been granted planning approval by the Development Applications Board. While the plans for the Shelly Bay Beach House sparked controversy due to the inclusion of a new parking lot near the existing playground, that element of the plan was shelved by the developer in the wake of a public outcry. The plans approved by the DAB instead proposed an expansion of the existing parking area to the east of the property, providing spaces for 14 additional cars, and minor alterations to a parking area to the west of the building to create a handicapped parking space and one space for an existing rental unit on the property. When completed, the proposed restaurant would have seating for 100 patrons, an ice cream counter and a beach rental shop. According to the minutes of the meeting, the board questioned the technical officer about who owned the property. The technical officer responded that the building and park were both owned by the Bermuda Government, and the Estates section of the Ministry of Public Works had confirmed that only the building would be leased out to a private entity — which would pay for all renovations for the building. The board also asked about bathrooms, and were told the restaurant would have three bathrooms on the upper floor, while bathrooms on the ground floor would remain open to the public and renovated by the Ministry of Public Works. Given all the details, the board resolved to approve the application.
