We dined at the Cafe Lido in celebration of my birthday in Bermuda. Being guests at a different resort, we had to get a cab to get here. We were glad we did that because it's located a good few minutes drive from the main road to the beach. it is on the beachfront and is overlooking the ocean! We had a window table and the pristine sandy beach in front could easily be mistaken for the white snow in the winter month! Such a wonderful sight to behold! The azure and while internal decor and ambiance were pleasantly calming. The staff were attentive and friendly. The wine selection was impressive and so too the good food choices. We had octopus grilled to perfection as starters and scrumptious swordfish and mouthwatering mixed seafood as our mains. All washed down with a very good bottle of red wine. The soufflés were a dessert heaven! The evening was certainly a memorable and fine one and we will certainly be returning let's hope for lunch (so that we can enjoy the ocean view more) the next time we are in Bermuda!

Enjoyed a fantastic dinner in this restaurant with beautiful views overlooking Elbow Beach. The Mussels and Tempura King Prawns were the best we ever had! Service was sublime. However, as we have discovered during our ten days on this magical island, the Taxi service is absolutely rubbish, especially Bermuda Island Taxi. Firstly, whilst we booked it an hour in advance they failed to pick us up from the Newstead hotel, so had to jump into a taxi that were dropping off people at the hotel. Then after dinner, the restaurant manager tried his utmost to order a taxi, but after a number of erroneous promises that one was on their way, he went Above and Beyond and took us to the hotel himself. Impressive or what? There is a serious issue with taxi service on the island, so before your arrive, download the Uber equivalent called Hitch to book your taxis.

It’s been a few years since my husband and I last went to Lido, but it’s just as good as we remembered. The views are great, the waiting staff attentive and knowledgeable and the food is the best on the island I started off with a Cosmopolitan cocktail then for our starters we had Polpettine (beef and pork meat balls) and Gamberi Alla Griglia. For the main we had Fritto Misto (mixed fried fish) and New Zealand lamb chops both with some sides. Each dish that we had was excellent and they have an extensive wine menu too. Hopefully, I will get to go back there again soon.

We came here for dinner and we were not impressed. While the view is amazing, the food and service was not. The food was rubbery and bland and didn’t have that much flavor. The seasoning was also disappointing. The prices of such low preforming food is shocking. The waitstaff barely spoke English which made communication extremely difficult. They messed up our order on two separate occasions during our meal and brought us the wrong dish. While many restaurants would say they’re sorry and replace the meal, the service staff refused to replace our food and told us that we ordered something else. I went from the outside area to use the bathroom on the inside area they would not let me walk through a certain set of doors and made me take the long way through the entrance of the restaurant instead of the side door.

Our intention was to just go to Elbow Beach on this weekday and go to Cafe Lido for brunch on the weekend. However, while enjoying the beach on Monday, we learned that the cafe was actually open for lunch on a weekday for the first time in the 2024 season. The staff was really friendly and upbeat--clearly excited about the cafe's being open that day. Senior staff members stopped by our table to introduce themselves and chat with us. The food was good, especially the sweet potato fries that came with my lobster roll. The Maine lobster in the lobster roll was chopped too small, but the sandwich was still good with its brioche roll. Other positive points were the basket of bread and accompanying compound butter and the plate of delicious cookies at the end of the meal. The bill was reasonable for such an elegant experience.

Ok maybe I don’t have enough experience to say this is the best restaurant in Bermuda BUT the food was delicious and the service was top notch. The ambiance was also fantastic with open air seating (retractable- they closed it up when there was a slight drizzle) overlooking the ocean and a killer DJ and cover band. If you are looking for a nice night out skip the Front Street haunts and check out Lido.

When I was seated there was one other couple in the restaurant. I asked to sit at a table next to the wall with a view of the water. I was told the table was reserved. I stayed for 2 hours and no on was sat at that table. All I can assume is that the maitre-d didn't like the way I looked (what else could he discriminate against since he didn't know me?!). The food was okay, but over priced. Expect to pay the cost of bottle for a glass of wine. The view is gorgeous. The service was solid.

Very good restaurant on a beautiful beach. We had salmon in a delicious vegetable cream sauce. All the good at restaurant atmosphere and beach view was great. The only hesitation I have visiting is how terrible it is to see The Elbow beach hotel shut down and in disrepair. it is very sad and depressing. When we visit Bermuda sometimes we forgo this restaurant just for that reason. it is a shame that the government cant do anything about leaving this beautiful old hotel to just stay there and decay.

Great lunch spot, overlooking the beautiful Elbow Beach area... The food and service was wonderful too. Enjoyed sushi and cocktails while relishing in the views. Afterwards, went down to the beach area. On a related note, Lido's has recently re-opened Mickey's Beach Bar, right next door. Highly recommend a visit for a lunch or dinner with beautiful views!

The location is stunning and the food good but unfortunately our entire experience was ruined by a noisy group of diners on a nearby table. The group were clearly drunk, shouting obscenities and generally behaving very badly which forced us to cut our time in the restaurant and blighted not only our experience but the experience of other diners. I’ve visited Bermuda multiple times over the last 15 years and never experienced this sort of behaviour before. We complained to the waiters and maitre d and they offered to move us to a table inside the restaurant but this was away from the stunning view of the beach and seemed unfair. It was disappointing that the staff did not want to tackle the poor behaviour of the other diners but in this case money speaks louder than protecting the ambience of the restaurant. Very disappointing and would not recommend.

Mother's Day brunch was spectacular with a wide variety of dishes, all of which showcased the chef's dedication to excellence. I usually skip salads, but the presentation demanded that I try, and OMG, the use of quality produce was evident throughout. Prime rib with au jus was heaven sent and so flavorful that I am still dreaming about it! The fish cakes were the sole exception to an otherwise exemplary meal. They were not Bermudian style and should be reworked. Desserts, often an afterthought at many venues, shone at Cafe Lido. The only downside was not wanting to appear uncivilized by making a huge plateful so I selected 3; lemon tart, pecan pie & bread 'n butter pudding. Each was beautifully executed and delicious, made guilt free without an excess of sugar. We've been to many brunches around the world and given Bermuda's size, this was hands down, one of the very BEST!

It looks like the really bad reviews were from years ago. We walked in from the beach without a reservation and were greeted warmly. Things might have been different had it been high season, but it was April, and there were empty tables on the day before Easter. This is a fine-dining restaurant. It's pricey, but there is a salad and sandwich menu that has less expensive items. I was not aware of any rule about very young children, but it would make some sense given the elegant ambiance, though I wonder how one is to feed one's children if staying at the hotel. The service was extremely attentive, and the pace was just right. I chose arancini from the full lunch menu and tuna niçoise from the salad and sandwich menu. My husband ordered truffle fries as an add-on to his octopus, and we shared them. Everything was delicious, and the wine that we ordered had been kept well. There is warm focaccia to start that is served with a lovely compound butter. I would imagine that dressing up is de rigueur in the evening, but there was clearly no dress code for lunch. I had bought a couple of straw hats to wear to lunch after the beach, and I was asked to remove the one I was wearing. I thought I looked more acceptable in my hat than the woman wearing the T-shirt advertising Curacao in giant letters did in her T-shirt. Hats at lunch are completely acceptable in the US for women, particularly when on holiday, but I guess, when in Rome . . . . The restaurant offers views of Elbow Beach, but behind a wall of glass windows, which were closed. I did not detect air conditioning, and I found the temperature to be a bit hot.

We've had some wonderful meals in Bermuda on this trip (Barracuda and Bolero to name two). Each of those was worthy of a 5-star rating. Lido is a 5++. Start with the view - we were seated at a high-top table next to the front of the restaurant. We had an unobstructed view of the beach, the waves lapping the shore and eventually a sunset (behind us) that turned puffy white clouds pink. The food was excellent. We split the grilled radicchio - grilled perfectly and resting on a tasty romesco sauce with shaved almonds. The flavors blended perfectly and again, another chef who pays attention to texture as well as flavor. Next up was the truffle carbonara dish. The truffle was added to taste, not to overwhelm. The pecorino cheese was added to taste, not overwhelm. It was all perfectly balanced. My wife had the prawns with beans cassoulet. Tasty again. Nice selection of wines by the glass. The service was attentive and the pace of the meal was perfect. You have to travel about 10-15 minutes outside of Hamilton to get here (it's at the currently abandoned Elbow Beach Resort, which is worth a gander as well). But well worth the trek. Taxis come here often and there was one waiting for us when we finished our meal.

This restaurant is gorgeous inside and out. The beach, view and overall atmosphere are excellent! We enjoyed our evening at Lido and walked the beach afterwards. Menu is extensive and tasty all around.
