Eliana’s Fine Dining is showing its appreciation for customers by giving away a free birthday cake for those who are celebrating their special day.

It is also running a Friday deal that allows one person to eat for free if a dinner group is made up of four customers. This deal upscales to three people eating for free if there are eight people in the dinner party.

The restaurant is a hidden treasure located in Southside, St David’s. Its neighbour is Pizza House, and Eliana’s is part of the Pizza House franchise.

L. Anthony Butterfield, operations manager, said the restaurant wants to ensure guests enjoy the experience and ambience of the restaurant.

Mr Butterfield said the restaurant prides itself on its appearance. “We are one of the fine dining restaurants in Bermuda. The restaurant is very intimate and only sits about 24 people comfortably,” he said.

Because of the limited space, reservations must be made in advance. The restaurant has an extensive ten-page menu, serving a wide variety of seafood, steak, lamb, pastas and salads.

“Our prices are very compatible for the food and service we offer. You will get your money’s worth,” he said.

Entertainment is also provided, with local musicians playing soft music during dinner.

Although the restaurant is out of the way, it has many repeat customers. “Once you come to eat here, you will definitely be back next week,” said Mr Butterfield.

One guest at Eliana’s said it was their favourite restaurant, and mentioned the ambience, “excellent food and good service”.

Eliana’s happy hour on Fridays gives women the opportunity to enjoy a “ladies night” experience. “This happens every Friday and it’s for women to come and unwind after a long week. We appreciate our women and the first Prosecco is on us,” Mr Butterfield said.

As mentioned earlier, another deal offered on Friday nights is one person eating for free if a dinner party contains four guests, two people eating for free if the party is six-strong, and three eating for free if it is a group of eight.

Opening hours for Eliana’s Fine Dining is Tuesday to Sunday from 5.30pm to 9pm. To make reservations call 777-0555
