Really enjoyed our evening at The Tide. Fantastic view and location,prompt and friendly service. The decor and ambience is just right for a special night out. Menu had lovely choices and the meals we ordered were excellent.

“Good fish & steaks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2012

Good location, slightly away from town centre towards water. Decking / outside space neat & tidy. Husband had steak, I had fish both were very good.
Wine was also good, waitress friendly and chatty.
Very quiet when we were there as had a big charity even the night before (24hr walk) and most people at home!

“Restaurant with a view of Bottom Lake, Mallacoota”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2010

Absolutely premium location looking out over woodland to Bottom Lake at Mallacoota. The menu is not extensive but offers reasonable choices including some vegetarian options. Use is made of locally available produce. The restaurant has a limited but quite adequate wine list and the prices are reasonable. The dining room has 'atmosphere' and a romantic dinner would be a distinct possibility. There are also tables outside and these might be preferable on a balmy summer evening. Try the Polenta entree - an excellent dish. Local beef is good too. We did not try the dessert.

“Atrocious food & appalling Service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2010

Their ad said bookings advised, so we called twice during the afternoon and left messages that were not answered. Calling after 5 p.m. got someone on duty. Our seating, entree, first drink serving and the entree itself were all OK. We finished our bottle of wine, waited for 3/4 hour and asked a passing waitress what was happening to our main. She did not report back. Another guest at an adjacent table reported a similar wait. We asked at the bar again about 15 minutes later and were told it was underway. Arrived about 10 minutes later. No apology. We ordered seafood platter for 2 at $60. The chips were hot - everything else was almost stone cold. One oyster was so bad I just spat it out. The prawns were not de-veined. Even the quantity of seafood was pretty poor. We ate less than 25% and then advised the restaurant manager that we would not pay for the main and we were leaving. She stated that she was sorry we did not enjoy this meal as other guests did - so obviously it was our fault that we did not enjoy cold, "off" seafood! No apology! We found out later that friends had dined there just a week or two earlier and he had felt obliged to advise the staff that their food was s..t. I am normally quite easy going in this area, but this was atrocious food, appalling service, dreadful preparation and no acceptance of responsibility. As the only "restaurant" in Mallacoota, they must feel that they do not have to try!
