“THE BEST EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

Made a reservation about a week in advance for a table by the beach and they did not disappoint. What a lovely evening, perfect weather and the food and drink were delish!!!
This was the best meal we had on the island and can't wait to go back again. If you can afford to stay at the Elbow Beach Hotel go for it. The beach is awesome and would be well worth it.

“Lovely location”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

Mickey's is a great restaurant if you want sea views and the option to eat with your toes in the sand. We were told we couldnt book and to come on down for a table. The staff were very professional and friendly and the food was excellent. It gets really busy which gives the place a wonderful atmosphere and you can have a walk along the beach afterwards. It is no more pricey that other restaurants on the island and in our experience you got what you paid for. You can even have sticky toffee pudding for dessert if you like!

“On the Beach”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

The only restaurant to be on the beach in Bermuda and some years it does get washed away! Great setting with good attentive staff, can be pricey but thats Bermuda in general. Hard to have a bad meal here worth at try at least!

“Just Do It!!”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

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.

“Dream location, good food, prompt service”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

I am torn between putting very good and average - it was a pleasant evening but nothing out of the ordinary as regards food. However the service was excellent with prompt attention and courteous waiters and the setting beautiful.
I booked a table and asked to be by the beach but all those had been taken by prior bookings apparently even though it only seemed they were allocating us as we arrived. So we were three rows back from the edge so view a little less good. There were a significant number of families with young children so this distracted somewhat from any romance or feeling of special seclusion. The children weren't noisy, just children and fidgety!
The food was well cooked but limited menu with nothing that intrigued or surprised - salmon in FILO pastry, baby ribs, pasta, fish,etc. the plates were well presented with just the right amount of vegetables and main. Desert menu standard - sticky toffee pudding, tiramisu etc.
wine good.
So I would recommend for family or group of friends, less so for couples wanting romance. Costs around $30 for main course, $20 for starters and desert.
