Mediterra - Fairmont Southampton Ratings and Reviews
We had a very pleasant meal, sharing everything: the fritter appetizer, salad, and paella. And, of course, wine. It was very good all the way around, though it like much of Bermuda was quite expensive, especially the wine. But we can't forget we're in paradise for our anniversary. It was worth it, and to get home we took an elevator.
A newly opened restaurant that promised an exciting sharing experience. We were not disappointed. The menu was explained in detail and recommendations offered. The cocktail menu offers a most interesting selection. Great value for money. The portions are very generous !
Visited Mediterra on a quite Tuesday evening. We chose the chefs selection of tapas to share for starters, the kofta was divine!
For main we chose the fish paella, tasty and plentiful.
As mediterra is quite new we decided to go out and had creme Catalan for dessert. All accompanied with a glass of Rioja.
Good value and tasty. Great, friendly service too
I was a fan and frequent customer of both previous restaurants in this space so was very disappointed in our experience of the new Mediterra.
I'll start with the good - the service and staff were great.
The problem was the food, which varied between just OK and bad enough to send back. We started with a platter of Tapas of the day which were OK, EXCEPT the pork tenderloin which was so overcooked it had the consistency of shoe-leather. We ignored it and waited for our mains.
I ordered a pasta Carbonara which I sent back and I NEVER send meals back. There was ZERO guanciarle (bacon) in it, it tasted of nothing and the portion was tiny. I think it was $26 which I simply wasn't going to pay for something so dismal. Back it went.
My wife's meal (cannelloni I think) had a slab of cheese on it that had been burnt into a dark brown brick. One of our friends had tortellini I think which comprised about 6 pieces of pasta totally lost in a soup of vegetables. Lastly, the other friend had Gnocchi Sorrentino which was OK but for $32 it should be. It's pasta and tomato sauce. We had a few glasses of wine but they came in tiny, I'd guess 3oz pours at $15 a glass. Guys, get some decent glasses for your red wine.
Even with our sent back dish removed from the bill, with grats, our meal came to $100 head which was lousy value for money for what we received. Hotel restaurant dining is never cheap but this seemed particularly expensive for pretty awful food.
As I say, both previous restaurants in this space (Gastropub and Newport Room) had great food so I don't know what happened here but I won't be back unless I hear things have improved mightily.
This was a wonderful experience, the food was interesting and tasty and reminded us of our visit to the Mediterranean. The atmosphere was welcoming and fun and the wait staff very helpful for those new to this type of cuisine. The price was reasonable given the opportunity for many menu options to be shared. A wonderful and fun way for a group or couple to spend the evening dining out.
