“Dinner in a tree house”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014

The Tides tree house dinning room provides a spectacular view of sunsets on the Caribbean. The dinning room is elegant with a touch of island ruggedness to make you feel like you are dinning in a tree house overlooking the sea. The food is terrific too, we can personally vouch for the Red Snapper and Salmon)

“Very pleasant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014

Good food, very attentive service and they made a fuss for my daughters birthday, although it seems everyone's latched onto this part of the service as half the restaurant seemed to be celebrating something!

It's hard to fault when you add up the quality food and the service, but it is lacking atmosphere sadly. Maybe just a little music would have helped, so whilst you definitely won't have any reason to complain it may not go on your "great night out" list of your holiday...

“You have to go”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2014

This was by far the best restaurant we ate in whilst in Barbados from the service to the food to the location all were amazing. It is not cheap but worth every penny we highly recommend The Tides a memory I will treasure .

“Great food but...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2014

Service a little over the top - athough I'm not sure thats something that should necessarily criticised as the waiting staff were so friendly and enthusiatic. I suppose it just felt a little too 'trained' as if they are going off a script. Bajan people are so cool and fun and chatty just as they are and it seemed a shame that they seemed to be following a script at this place. The food is faultless though - in flavour and presentation so I would say definitely give it a go
