We visited Tides as part of a 16 day holiday in Barbados eating out most nights. This was without doubt the best meal we had. We'd passed the restaurant on the boardwalk on our first day, thought it looked good and booked for our 2nd last night. There were 4 of us and the food was so good we spent... More

Truly excellent night out at The Tides. The food was wonderful (lobster and wild mushroom risotto to start, seared scallops and Chile an sea bass for mains), the service quick, attentive, and friendly without being intrusive. The Tides' mission statement is to be the best restaurant on Barbados, and they clearly take it seriously, with attention paid to the smallest... More

We are visiting tides tonight for the second time this holiday. We have to say that the ambience,location,staff and of course the food are second to none. A real privilege and treat to be able to visit every year

Of the beach restaurants we tried (cin cin, champers and the tides), this was the best. Service was perfect, the place is modern and well decorated and the idea of having a boardwalk right in front of the restaurant was ingenious: the sea is very calm and looks like a pool in that stretch of the coast, and strong lights...

We went to dinner at The Tides for my husband's birthday and had a wonderful time. They have balloons on the tables where people are celebrating special occasions and the service is wonderful from the time you leave your car until you return. I had the lobster risotto for a starter and the jerk bacon wrapped pork for my main... More

This year I was lucky enough to be taken to Tides by my husband for my Birthday dinner. The whole evening was a pleasure; the staff were wonderfully attentive without being "in your face" the table setting of sprinkled emeralds was beautiful, the food out of this world, and it was all finished off by the staff singing "Happy Birthday"...

We were recommended to go to The Tides by a friend and we were not disappointed. We booked that day and asked for a table on the sea front and advised I was gluten and dairy free, not a problem, I could choose anything off the menu and they would adapt it to my dietary needs and they did. We... More

The dining experience at The Tides was fabulous! We started off with a couple drinks from the bar, the bartenders were friendly and let us know what the nightlife was like in the area. We were then seated at a table facing the ocean, to watch the beautiful sunset. They had placed a 'celebrate' balloon at our table which was... More

We had a great time at Tides - food was excellent, and service was faultless. They noted when i booked the table that i said we were on honeymoon and they went out of their way to a make the meal special for us with an extra "happy honeymoon" dessert, which was very kind. Lovely setting - couldn't ask for... More

Had a very nice meal here and the service was great. Far better than the cliff which is very up its self and needs to understand that the customers are important - something that they certain in understand at tides.
