Descend a few limestone stairs to the white sand of Elbow Beach and prepare to be impressed. Mickey’s Beach Bar & Bistro is Bermuda’s most iconic and romantic island-style getaway, located on the picturesque South Shore, less than 100 feet from the water.
Tables are arranged on a raised wooden boardwalk, shaded by a gently sloping roof and large umbrellas. The ambiance is casual, yet elegant, from the flicker of blue candles on white tablecloths to the soothing murmur of waves along the shore. Let the kids play on the beach while you enjoy a special dinner or dip your toes in the ocean between courses. If you are eager to experience true beachfront dining, there really is no other restaurant like Mickey’s.
Established in 1994, the restaurant was named after a local icon, Mickey Caines, who was the beloved property beach manager for many years. To this day, Mickey’s values its thoughtful and hardworking employees, led by none other than their ever-attentive manager, Stefano Cielo. Known for his customary open-armed greeting and magnanimous smile, Stefano guides each and every guest through a memorable dining experience. Years of commitment to happy patrons have earned Stefano, along with the rest of his staff, a reputation for doing everything in their power to make you feel welcome and at home.
Under the tutelage of Mediterranean-born Serge Botteli, Chef Angelo has created an exciting Provencal menu, which focuses on simple, traditional items and the best produce on the market. Accented with herbs and vegetables from their own organic garden, Mickey’s open kitchen crafts dishes that focus on the natural flavour of their ingredients. One of their most popular entrees is the Mixed Fresh Seafood Platter, with a medley of tiger prawn, mussels, clams, calamari and of course local catch of the day. Whether for lunch or for dinner, guests can enjoy gourmet pastas, local fish and Certified Angus Beef- there’s even a small bites menu, if you’re craving an afternoon snack.
The blissful beachside setting just wouldn’t be complete without one of Mickey’s indulgent cocktails; try a refreshing Blue Curacao Ocean View, a Sea Breeze Mimosa or a pitcher of Bermuda’s famous Black Seal Rum Swizzle. There’s an extensive wine collection as well, just ask Charles “Charlie” Bristol the bartender; he will be happy to oblige! During the summer, be sure to take a post-dinner stroll along the nearby Sea Breeze Lounge and Terrace, while listening to the live entertainment. A very magical evening awaits you!
