Overlooking the stunning south shore on the beautiful and historic Elbow Beach Hotel property, the Lido Complex features three distinct restaurants—each with its own incredible ambiance and unique dining experience.
Meaning beach in Italian, Café Lido first opened in 1992 as a single beach side restaurant before expanding to include Seabreeze Lounge—an al fresco dining and entertainment space on the beach terrace—and Mickey’s Beach Bistro which is located directly on the beach level. With pink sand and turquoise waters as the backdrop, the ambiance for the entire complex is arguably one of the best in Bermuda.
Head chef Stefano Ligori has a passion for fresh and carefully prepared cuisine and all the restaurants feature locally grown vegetables and fish caught in Bermuda waters whenever possible. The signature restaurant of the complex, Café Lido focuses on upscale Mediterranean/Italian cuisine. With the waves lapping against the shore a mere 50 feet outside the picturesque windows next to your table, Café Lido is both elegant and romantic. The dress code is described as business casual.
Outside on the terrace, Seabreeze Lounge serves food to be shared like sushi and tapas in a casual outdoor environment and often has live local entertainment.
Open April through October, Mickey’s Beach Bistro features more casual Mediterranean/Italian fare. The dress is smart casual to tie in with the location.
Some of the most popular dishes include linguine with lobster, fresh tuna tartare with avocado mousse and zucchini noodles and Lido mix grilled seafood. Their amazing daily specials highlight local ingredients when available.
Manager Ennio Lucarini will ensure you have a fabulous time while bartenders Marvin Burchall and Charles Bristol will stir up something memorable from the bar’s extensive cocktail list. Or if you prefer, select a glass or bottle from the expansive wine list which has international character with a wide price range.
For private parties or events, Café Lido also has a private dining room—the St. George Room—which boasts its own private beach deck. Indoor and outdoor dining can be provided for up to 40 guests.
For that something extra, private beach dining is also available for booking in the summer season. Exclusive bookings of the entire restaurant are also available for special events.
