About Ocean Club - Fairmont Southampton

Great seafood simply prepared and served surfside. There’s nothing better. The Ocean Club combines the freshest local catch with the relaxed atmosphere of this sea side setting. Take in the ocean. Soak up the sun. Let the breaking waves be your soundtrack. Bermuda’s best ocean views are just as much a part of this experience as the seafood. Come from the beach, come for lunch, come for dinner, come for a cold, crisp glass of wine or a frosty beer.

Don't get why people like this place. Food wasn't great at all. So many better options on the island

The Ocean Club has hands-down the best views of any restaurants we ate at on the island. It was just magical – something you’d see in a postcard or on someone’s computer background photo. AMAZING. And then of course the food was fantastic as well! All in all, and A-Plus. We started with the calamari (delicious) and then I had the rockfish and my husband had the lobster thermidor. We were both super happy with our choices. The rockfish was served with banana’s and almonds, which I must confess I thought was weird when reading it on the menu, but OMG I’m so glad I got this dish. It was fantastic. And for dessert we tried the chocolate brownie and keylime pie – would recommend both!

My kids and I spent our last evening in Bermuda at the Ocean Club and I guess you could say we saved the best for last. The views were amazing and the service excellent. Our server was from Australia and was the most outgoing and friendly person which just added to our experience. We had Fried Calamari and then had the special of pan seared halibut with asparagus and cut sweet potatoes. Absolutely delicious. Lastly we finished the meal off with desert. The brownie to share and trio of icecream also very good. Excellent finish to our trip.

We dined at the Ocean Club 2 evenings during our visit and both times were wonderful. The second night was amazing because the weather was perfect so outdoor dining was available. The service was excellent and the staff can not have been more attentive and pleasant. We were celebrating our 30th Anniversary and the waitress brought us a special anniversary dessert. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who is looking for a romantic dinner with a beautiful view. Thanks Ocean Club, you made our anniversary trip to the Fairmont Suothampton Princess so special.

I would definitely recommend sitting outside on the terrace to enjoy the view. It was so hot and muggy we choose to sit inside where the decor was bland. Food was good. My husband ordered fish which filleted so he had to take apart the whole fish and had some trouble with the bones. Service was very good though..we had delightful waitress!

The best part about this restaurant is that it has an amazing view of the beach. You should sit outside and try to get a table near sunset. The food was good but the second most expensive restaurant we went to in Bermuda and not the second best. For that reason I scored it lower on overall value.

At our table the waitress spilled an entire drink on a couple and their clothing and nothing was even comped.

The Ocean Club at the Southampton Fairmont is the most impressive of their many dining options. (The Waterlot at The Dock is a close second!) Seated outside on the patio, above the beach at sunset was a treat. The atmosphere is enchanting and the service is top notch. This is a seafood-centric restaurant serving locally caught as well as flown-in seafood. All four of us were quite pleased our respective meals which were expertly prepared with bright, fresh flavors.

I was celebrating my 70th birthday.
Couldn't have chosen a more perfect spot. The food was delicious. The view was absolutely beautiful. The service was excellent. Waiters took photos without even being asked. My meal was prepared gluten free & was phenomenal . We will definitely be back . We thank you.

We arrived early and even though it was not busy it took almost 50 minutes to get the first course. The appetizers were lobster based and quite good. The rest of the meal was over cooked. Lovely location but the building itself looks tired. I have t been here for maybe 20 years and sadly won't be back any time soon.

We were staying at Hamilton Princess and decided to visit other Fairmont property. We had
reservations at 6pm - arrived about 15 mins early thinking we could have a drink at the bar but
it didn't open until 6. They sent us to the beach bar to wait. Unfortunately, that bar closes at
6 so they were in the process of closing down. We were able to get something but it wasn't
the greatest experience.

The food was good but nothing special. We were also told they had a dress code which for men meant they could only wear shorts if they were true Bermuda shorts (just above the knee). We dressed up and dined with people who came in straight from the beach. The biggest take-away is the following: both Fairmont properties heavily promote their restaurants and they are massively overpriced for the quality of the food. Drinks start about $12 so for two people having 1-2 drinks, appetizers, an entree & sharing a dessert (+the 17% gratuity they include), you're
looking at 150-200.

I wouldn't discourage people from going as the setting is gorgeous - just manage your
expectations. The facility itself is looking a little tired but I hear the owners are investing
in improvements so that's a positive.

Very overpriced, but then again so are all the restaurants in Bermuda. I guess you are paying for the view because the food and service were just mediocre. We felt very rushed by the waiter to place our order. At one point, when we were taking too long to place our order, he just walked away. At these prices, that shouldn't happen. We will not be going back. I would recommend The Reefs restaurant down the road which has just as spectacular views, better food, and great service.

The restaurant is sitting on a Perch above the ocean with great views.
So everything is good before you take your first bite!
We had the locally caught wahoo which was really fresh and then add the butter chive sauce on the side and it's fabulous!

We celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary this past Monday and had dinner at the ocean club .My husband had the mussels and rockfish entree and I had the strawberry gazpacho and crab soup followed by the prawn curry which did not disappoint.
The staff were very attentive and did not rush us to order which was pleasant I would have no hesitation recommending the Ocean Club as a great spot

The excellence of the Ocean Club met us at the door and stayed with us up to the time we left. The service was attentive and "genuine". The pace of the service was perfect to enjoy the romance of celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary. The food was outstanding, and our server was delightful. We give our highest recommendation to the Ocean Club at the Fairmont Southampton in Bermuda.

Everything was perfect! The staff was welcoming and succeeded in anticipating and fulfilling our wants. The outdoor setting was elegant. Every course was outstanding and the drinks - delicious. We weren't rushed, the staff was so friendly, personable and professional. We could not have asked for a more wonderful evening. Even the sunset cooperated and provided us with a spectacular show. Thanks and praise go to Maitre'D Cameron and our Waiter Hari!

 (Washington DC)·Dined on August 5, 2017

Had dinner for 10th wedding anniversary. Stayed at Fairmont. Great location and view. Menu is limited and not that inspiring for a seafood restaurant. I ordered a pan seared tuna steak medium rare. It came out well done and dry. It was a thin wide piece. The Bermuda fish chowder was good. The prices are inflated, which is to be expected. The manager did take our champaign off of our bill because of the entree. We dined there a second night with a large party. Fish was good the second night, but one of our party's entree again had to be returned because of overcooked. Service was slow and after dinner, plates sat at table for almost 15 minutes before being cleared. Alternative close by I would highly recommend Coconuts at the Reefs.
