Splendido is, hands down, the most romantic place to have dinner in Bermuda. The exquisite restaurant at the former Horizons & Cottages hotel is an elegant limestone plantation house with all the characteristic Bermudan touches: hot-pink walls, green tablecloths, antique family china and crystal. While the interiors are welcoming, the views are breathtaking: Up on a hill 500 feet above the ocean, you get sweeping vistas of the sea and the moon, which floats up across the sky between mountains. The food, surprisingly, rises to the level of its surroundings. The menu changes regularly depending on the availability of local ingredients, but expect Mediterranean dishes with light preparations—pan-seared salmon, broiled local lobster, plus grilled lamb chops (an ever-present legacy of British rule). Go early, order a cocktail from the funky little pub downstairs, and take it out on the terrace to watch the sunset.

Open daily noon to 3 pm and 7 to 10 pm.
