Looking for somewhere to take the kids for a bite? Who's going to give you a more honest bite-sized review than a 10-year-old? Eliza Olander, from St David's, is a student at St George's Prep.

With a little help from Uncle Tony

Location: The Beach House at Blackbeard’s, next to Fort St Catherine.

First impressions: “Very welcoming. A sunny, happy place.”

Drink: Shirley Temple: “Very good”.

Starter: Calamari [$15]. “I liked it a lot and really enjoyed the sauce [mayo with Schezwan].” 

Service: “Our waitress [Shirley Baker] was very happy and that’s how a Bermudian waiter or waitress should always be. Always have a smiley face.”

Main course: Bermy Burger [$15]. “I asked for relish but there was no relish for the burger. But it was yummy. The fries were okay.” 

[The waitress thoughtfully suggested that Cheddar cheese would be more suitable than the Gruyere which they normally use on the Bermy Burger]. 

Portion size: “I couldn’t eat it all. They should make kid sizes, too.”  

Overall experience: “I would recommend [The Beach House] to tourists and to a lot of locals, too. If you’re in St George’s and looking for a happy place close to the beach, come to the Beach House.”
