America’s Cup Profile – Rosa’s


International Visitors Love Rosa’s

 Rosa’s is known for Tex-Mex style food but more recently, the Hamilton restaurant has become famous for Bermuda-style fish sandwiches.

Two years ago, they won Bermuda Tourism Authority’s fish sandwich competition and don’t show any signs of losing that crown. Rosa’s is serving up the delicious sandwich in the America’s Cup Village to tourists and locals alike. And while it might sound strange on the surface to non-Bermudians – raisin bread, cheese, lettuce, tomato and tartar sauce – it’s proving to be a very popular dish.

Manager Lindsay Durham says: “It’s been wonderful. We’ve been very busy and it’s been a great experience.”Rosa’s is fully staffed to serve up tasty Bermudian treats within minutes, including chefs quickly frying fish, which has proven to be the most popular item on the menu.

Asked about the process to become an official food vendor for the America’s Cup, Ms Durham says the restaurant was excited to be considered.

“I was always confident that we would be a food vendor here. Confident and excited that we would get the job. The response has been very positive.”

Speaking on the famous fish sandwich, Ms Durham said: “A tourist came over and got a fish sandwich and said ‘raisin bread?’ but then he tasted it and said it was amazing.”

Ms Durham said the most popular items on the menu are of course the fish sandwiches, but also fish and chips and the burgers have been big sellers. She said the kids meals were quite popular as well.

“If you want the best food in the America’s Cup Village, we guarantee to give you a great value meal”, she added.

Encouraging Bermudians to come up to the America’s Cup Village, Ms Durham said: “What they did to build the America’s Cup Village is amazing. It’s for everybody. There is so much to do and there’s a beautiful kids zone.

“I think everyone should come and experience it. It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity. The atmosphere is fantastic and everybody is having fun. During the week when the children come and perform, it’s beautiful. It makes me proud to be Bermudian. Hopefully America’s Cup will come back here once it’s finished.”

Rosa’s menu includes hot dogs, chicken sandwiches, salads, veggie burgers, chicken tender, chicken wings and more. There are also gluten free options for those with allergies.

THIRD WORLD JOIN AMERICA’S CUP VILLAGE MAIN STAGE LINEUP ON SUNDAY 25th JUNE

June 25, 2017


Third World, the Jamaican reggae legends who first formed in 1973, will bring their “reggae-fusion” to the Main Stage at the America’s Cup Village after racing has concluded on Sunday 25th June.

Celebrating 43 years, THIRD WORLD is one of the longest-lived reggae bands of all time, and one of Jamaica’s most consistently popular crossover acts among international audiences. Mixing in elements of R&B, funk, pop, and rock and, later on, dancehall and rap, Third World’s style has been described as “reggae-fusion”.

Third World’s history includes 10 Grammy nominations and a catalogue of charted smash hits, including “Now That We Found Love”, ”96 Degrees in the Shade” and “Try Jah Love”, spanning over four decades, sold-out tours and a vibrant and loyal fan base.

Sunday 25th June is the fourth day of competition in the America’s Cup Match, presented by Louis Vuitton, and will see ORACLE TEAM USA, Defender of the America’s Cup, continue their battles with Challenger Emirates Team New Zealand from 2.00pm on Bermuda’s Great Sound.

After the action finishes on the Great Sound, all eyes will turn to the America’s Cup Village Main Stage where Third World will be the headline act in a range of entertainment that will continue until the America’s Cup Village closes at 7.00pm.

Speaking ahead of the band’s America’s Cup Concert Series performance, Cat Coore said, “We are super energized to be invited to jam with all the racers , crew and attendees at the Americas Cup in Bermuda on Sunday June 25th.   Every time we touch down in Hamilton, it feels like we are coming home, so we welcome being back in your arms, Bermuda.

“We are looking forward to taking in race four with ORACLE TEAM USA and Emirates Team New Zealand battling it out ,as well as walking on the pink sand beaches, having a Dark ‘n Stormy and performing all the hits and entertaining you.”

A limited number of tickets for Sunday 25th June at the America’s Cup Village are still available now from $50 via www.americascup.com/tickets.
