Another visit to a favorite restaurant - again excellent food & service, especially as they have a separate veggie menu. The surroundings are beautiful and staff professional but friendly.

Dining at Tides is always a treat. The restaurant is beautifully appointed with lots of discreet areas adding an air of intimacy - not an easy trick to pull off. Service is attentive but far from over-bearing and the food is nothing short of spectacular....More

Staff were so lovely, the interior design beautiful but the restaurant was no where near full and we were tucked away at the back with no ocean in sight. The food, well puddings were great, trio of seafood for starters and both lobsters were rubber....More

It’s very posh, I would recommend maybe linen trousers if it’s too hot for smart trousers, the ladies all wore nice dresses and heels/ however some nice sandals would be fine (not the type you would wear to the beach etc.)
