Elbow Beach Hotel restaurants still open despite resort’s shutdown
A restaurant complex at the shuttered Elbow Beach Hotel is still in operation, the owner said yesterday.
Jacky Di Meglio said Café Lido and the Sea Breeze Lounge and its terrace were still open, although the Paget hotel and its cottage accommodation were closed.
A spokeswoman added that they “remain open and ready to serve Bermuda’s residents and tourists”.
She said: “Jacky and his team have run the various restaurants at the complex – comprising Café Lido restaurant, Sea Breeze, The Deep and Mickey’s – since April 1992.
“Jacky has seen the development of the complex from one small operation over the years to become an icon of outside dining and entertainment in Bermuda.”
The restaurant complex at the Saudi Arabian-owned hotel is run by the Bermuda-based MEF group.
The spokeswoman added that Mickey’s had closed after hurricane damage last year, but it was hoped to reopen it after the hotel owners completed repairs to access ways and around the beachfront restaurant.
She said that Mr Di Meglio “concurs that Elbow Beach remains one of Bermuda’s jewels and looks forward to better times for all concerned”.
The spokeswoman added: “In the meantime, Sea Breeze continues to find aficionados with the explosion of outdoor dining and continues to host Bermudian entertainers on its spectacular terrace.”
Mr Di Meglio said: “I look forward to continuing to welcome all our longstanding clients of 30 years at the Lido Complex.
“Our exciting menus and entertainment continue to appeal and to attract the next generation looking for a lively and friendly atmosphere.”
Café Lido and Sea Breeze are open from Tuesday to Sunday for lunch, dinner and takeout.
Live entertainment is featured on Fridays and Saturdays.
Bookings can also be made for private events and holiday parties.
