“Simply the best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

The setting is just beautiful (right on the water's edge), food is sublime (try the sticky toffee pudding) and the service surpasses both! A delight!

“Beautiful location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

We just returned from a two week stay in Barbados and ate at the Tides as well as various other West Coast restaurants. After the Cliff, Tides was our favourite. We had a table by the ocean which was not only beautiful to look at but relaxing to listen to as the waves broke on the shore. The food was excellent and our only criticism (which is minor) is that the portion size was quite large. The staff were attentive without being annoying. We enjoyed looking at the art gallery which added to the interest of the place. We would definitely return.

“Fantastic Birthday Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012 via mobile

This was our 5th visit to Tides and I had emailed in advance to let them know it was my wife's Birthday. From start to finish the service and attention was fantastic rounded off by the staff singing "Happy Birthday" Stevie Wonder style. As we've found on past visits the food was really really good. A big thanks to all the staff for making the evening special.
