If there is a place in the world where you can have an al fresco meal without being too cold it surely is in Bermuda!
The best location would be on a beach and if possible one of the South Shore of the island, but not directly on the sand, unless you like a bit of added crispiness on your food. As we have the chance to eat on the beach whenever we want, unless the rare times when the weather turns a bit cold or it rains, the best place for an al fresco meal must have something special, like some great food, a great view and an amazing setting.
There are a few places that can pretend to the title and this year, it was the Sea Breeze that won the Best of Bermuda Award 2011 of The Bermudian for best place for an al fresco meal. Given it’s name, it’s hardly surprising that the restaurant of the Elbow Beach Hotel is the best choice for a lunch, a dinner or even just a drink and tapas al fresco.
The Sea Breeze is ideally located on the Elbow Beach Hotel’s terrace that faces the Atlantic Ocean on the beach of the same name. It is one of the best and most famous beaches in Bermuda with stunning views, especially on a hot summer evening.
The best place for al fresco meals has a custom made wooden gazebo ideal for outdoor dining without being completely exposed to the oceanic breeze while enjoying wonderful views. For more relaxed al fresco cocktails and tapas, there are attractive lounge seats scattered inside the gazebo and on the terrace. Those are just what you need to spend an evening under the stars sipping great drinks and nibbles.
Everything is made at the Sea Breeze lounge for you to have the best time, with a satellite kitchen serving tapas, seafood and a selection from the Elbow Beach Hotel grill, and an outdoor bar to keep you going all evening during the summer. When the months become a bit cooler (for us in Bermuda that is!) the menu includes more comfort food and classic dishes and outdoor heatings are brought in as well as fire pits so that you can still enjoy the al fresco style and the view.
All year long, you can have some al fresco time at Sea Breeze, with food served from 5pm to 1am and drinks available up to 2am. You can decide to have a romantic time in the cool salty summer breeze or bring all your friends for a social evening. You can also hire the place for a function and the capacities are of 60 people seated in the outdoor lounge, 90 people seated under the gazebo and 120 people for a cocktail party.
The Sea Breeze is owned by the Little Venice Group that owns some of the best restaurants on the island. That is a guaranty of the great quality of the food that consists of tapas, sushi and meat from the grill, without forgetting delicious desserts to round off a great meal. You can also get some breakfast at the Sea Breeze to start your day with the most beautiful views you could think of.
