For my wife and I no trip to Bermuda is complete without spending the evening at Mickey's.
And here is why:
1. Outstanding Wait Staff and Bartenders. Our experience is that no matter how crowded the Bistro is when you walk in you are made to feel like you are their primary concern in terms of service. And this starts with the Manager and holds right thru to those who bus the table at the end of the meal.
Our waiters have always been attentive, engaging, and highly professional. We love how they manage to unobtrusively visit the table and anticipate your needs throughout the meal.
And a few of them come by just to make you laugh at your table. This has to be the best crew in Bermuda!
2. Outdoor view that you will never forget.
Mickey's is directly on Elbow Beach and the view is simply stunning. Most of the restaurant is completely open: no roof...no walls. Just that incredible view of the breaking ocean waves thirty yards away and a night sky filled with stars.
We were there for dinner in August (3 times) and there was no heat or humidity...only those lovely ocean breezes. And if you catch it on a night with a full moon you will pinch yourself.
3. Well prepared Meal Courses.
Being that we were on an island we always went for the seafood side of the menu and were always delighted with the starters and main course offerings.
Nicely plated and perfectly cooked at each of our visits.
4. The Intangibles.
We love the atmosphere and the energy that surrounds us. Mickey's is a happy gathering place in the best sense of the word. Families, groups of friends, romantic couples, children playing on the beach...everyone seems to find their niche there.
Kinda hard to describe but you will understand when you are there.
Although there does not seem to be dress code folks seem to appear at the upper end of "casual" ...again just part of the atmosphere that surrounds Mickey's.
We did not visit during the day so cannot comment on the lunch experience.
In regards to cost...yes it is on the expensive side if all you look at is price. But then again that's true of all aspects of Bermuda.
But for us, when we consider the total experience it is the best money spent in Bermuda.
