Diners’ feedback on restaurants invited
Diners are invited to help promote island restaurants by sharing video reviews on social media.
This year’s Bermuda Restaurant Weeks starts on Thursday and will run until February 3.
The Bermuda Tourism Authority released a list last week of 49 eateries taking part in the scheme, which included the East End’s Tempest for the first time.
Restaurateurs from across the island will offer two-course lunches at $22 and three-course dinners at fixed-price tiers of $32, $42 and $52.
A webpage was launched on Friday to guide diners through the options.
People who take part in the offers were asked to share short video testimonials on social media and include #BermudaRW.
The BTA can share the best content with visitors, allowing them to see and hear the recommendations of residents.
Pat Phillip-Fairn, chief product and experiences development officer at the authority, said: “Whether it’s on TripAdvisor, Google reviews or on your own social channels, visitors genuinely value the recommendations of locals.
“It’s our goal during Bermuda Restaurant Weeks to raise the profile of what locals are saying about where to eat so that visitors benefit from that insider knowledge.”
Video reviews with the BermudaRW hashtag should include where the meal was from, what made it memorable and which restaurant the diner would like to visit next.
The BTA will choose a “most compelling” poster during each week of the campaign and they will win a restaurant weeks meal.
Visitors and locals are eligible to participate as long as their post is public.
Diners were also encouraged to vote online in the People’s Choice Award.
Only restaurants featuring Bermuda-inspired dishes can qualify for the title so that the island’s food culture is promoted to visitors.
Now in its eighth year, Bermuda Restaurant Weeks takes place at this time to enhance the experience of wintertime visitors.
