Fairmont Southampton Princess, 101 South Road
A classic, nautical theme pervades
the decor, which is modelled to the
likeness of a ship’s cabin. Faux portal
windows adorn the walls and, thanks
to bright, photorealistic paintings, appear to look out onto a lively scene in
Hamilton Harbour. Scattered around
the edge of the room are semi-circular
booths; regular table seating is available in the centre of the restaurant.
The Newport serves classic dishes
with a modern twist. A bold and confident
kitchen turns out imaginative creations and
capture guests’ attention with their inspired
food presentation and plating techniques.
Take the much-loved poutine, for example,
which is served smothered and loaded in
a mini cast iron dish. Many other appetisers and desserts are delivered to the table
on thick slabs of slate! You can even watch
chefs shuck oysters and build charcuterie
platters at the live action prep station in the
middle of the room.
When you arrive, check the black-
board specials for new and exciting
appetisers, main courses and desserts.
A must-try are the “Drunken Mussels”,
flavoured with white wine, garlic and
cherry tomatoes and plated with a hand-
ful of french fries. The fresh raw bar is
also outstanding. Another popular dish
with the seafood lovers is the Maine lob-
ster pot pie, seasoned with fennel and
enveloped in golden pastry. Gluten-free
options and a cheekily-written “young
adults menu” are also available.
Last but not least, The Newport loves
its beer. In fact, the restaurant boasts the
largest selection of local and craft beers
on island. Accent your meal with one of
over 40 international brews or go for their
sampler trio if you’d rather spread the
love around. Nothing pairs better with
a big ol’ frosty beer than their “Serious
Burger”: marbled Wagyu beef, aged
cheddar, garlic aioli, egg and bacon- yum!
Reservations are available but not
