A passport to great food, wine, discounts and prizes


Residents have a chance to dine in restaurants while earning special discounts and other prizes.

Gosling’s and Total Marketing & Communications Limited (TMC) recently launched the ‘Passport to Taste’ programme.

It offers the opportunity to choose from menus at 14 select restaurants, and have their food paired with one of 16 wines selected by Gosling’s.

In exchange, they get a stamp on the provided passport which enables a discount towards a future purchase at Gosling’s Wine Store; ten or more stamps places them in the running for a grand prize drawing with exciting goodies from Gosling’s and Bermuda Gas.

According to Steve Marklew, president and CEO of TMC, it’s a win-win situation for all involved.

Restaurants can boost their patron numbers through the winter season and residents can sample what’s on offer, he said.

“We are very excited and the restaurants are too. The new thing is this year the website is more detailed. It doesn’t just list the restaurants, it also lists the recipes.

“So if you really enjoy the meal you can go home and recreate it yourself.”

Participating restaurants include: Beau Rivage, Henry VIII, Ocean Echo, Wahoos Bistro and Patio, Bolero Brasserie, Bistro J, Lobster Pot, Lido, Port O’Call, Mad Hatters, La Trattoria, Little Venice, Blu and L’Oriental.

Mr Marklew said: “It will be a great way for people to try different dishes and experience Bermuda’s great hospitality at some of Bermuda’s finest restaurants.”

The programme has been made possible thanks to the generosity of sponsors and participating restaurants, he added.

Residents can collect a free passport from locations including Gosling’s retail stores, Bermuda Gas showrooms, TMC offices and participating restaurants.

They must then present the passport to the restaurant’s maître d’ or member of staff when they arrive. The scheme runs through April 20.
