“Fine food & Fantastic service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

We were able to get the kids sat while staying at Caloundra, and what a great night. The food is what you expect from this establishment. Quality seafood and service was impeccable. Good location and great daytime views. If you are up for that special night while in Caloundra then choose this restaurant. Tides will surely deliver.

“Fantastic Service!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

Tides Caloundra is absolutely fantastic! The staff could not do enough for us. They had changed the menus that day & we came for something on the previous menu but they still cooked up our 'wish'. Wait staff very very friendly & helpful. Fantastic food, fantastic staff. Well done!

The food is not cheap but is of consistent excellent quality. Also it is a great location. Our Gourmet group have enjoyed a number of enjoyable evenings there.

“Romantic dinner”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Me & my partner went to Tides for a romantic dinner recently. We had a booking for 7.30pm on a Saturday night & it was quite busy so it wasn't as romantic as we thought. But despite that we had a good time! View was ok, good service & the food was nice. I found it to be quite expensive for just a good experience though.
