We got a brilliant summer deal 2 courses for 72 BDS. This was fine dining at the best and worth the treat meal. We had a lovely lunch and it was great to sit in the glass air conditioned area. It's obviously upscale but the decor is divine and the view is beautiful. Makes u feel like a million bucks... More

We have been visiting Tides for the past 10 years. We stay at the Royal westmoreland and love this restaurant. However we visited last night and were amazed by the beautiful renovations which were matched by an excellent, well executed menu and attentive personal service. Having been to Daphne's and the awful lone star restaurants we are returning here next... More

Pre dinner drinks and we were shown to our table. After much deliberation the four of us shared the seafood starter for 4! Wow... More

For those who remember Tides in the early days, this restaurant always aimed to please and did, and continued to do so throughout the years. For those who have not visited Tides in the last couple of months, an extremely pleasant suprise awaits you on your next visit. It is almost impossible to describe how magnificently Tides has been transformed... More

The meal was excellent. Everyone greeted you as you walked by. Omar was one of our waiters he was lively and pleasant. Love the decor and the ambience. The re-modelling was worth it. Will definitely be back and will recommend to my clients.

Visited for lunch with my husband. The A la carte menu was reasonably priced. The service from entry ( with valet parking) to exit was magnificent. The comfort of sitting in air conditioning was an added extra. The food was delectable. Would recommend to anyone. Beautiful ambience.

Thank walaBarbados
