Tried a prawn curry. Shocking. Prawns like rubber and stale. Person at the next table said she had also returned hers 20 min before but they continued to serve it! Replaced with undercooked hake. No quality control whatsoever. Never again.

Rip Tide is great for good wholesome food, and the view of the river mouth is wonderful. It is a great place to relax, and get into the south coast swing of things. I have never had a bad meal there.

The decor is plain and easy going just like the people who work there, you need to embrace this to enjoy it. It has a nice view of the Ocean and river.

This is the second time I went there and if I ever have to pass near it I will go again! We ordered a massive sea food platter because that is what they do best here. Not burgers or spaghetti, SEA FOOD! Its just like somebody made it for you at home, tasty and fresh!

People who travel in Europe will know that to pay for a platter like this you need to take the credit card out! Not here. We talked with the waiter and asked what they have fresh off the line and we added extras to it and shared it between 4 people.

WIth drinks and shots it was something like 50Euro!!!

Dont be tight and give the lads a fat tip! They just working to pay for holiday and the prices are excellent here.

If you want an upclass proper restaurant experience, go somewhere else.

This is like a pub with good seafood! To the owners- take that as a compliment because this is why many people love this place and that is why I will always come back!

Lekker kos!

*The rating reflects the standards at which the restaurant operates and I am totally satisfied with it.

We visited Riptide as regulars 10 Years ago, whilst living in the area. We returned for a holiday and lunch. The menu had dirt and food in it. We ordered snails and were told they had none, but they would do prawns the same way. They arrived and were as hard as boiled sweets! Cannot imagine how a prawn can be cooked till hard. The waiter agreed and then brought fish that was not up to standard. I thought the guests in the bar were noisy, and accepted that. We waited ages for the bill. On leaving we realised all the staff sitting were at the bar socialising. We asked to see the manahger and were told "he pops in now and again." We will not be returning as we were at the coast for 2 weeks and it was the only bad meal we had.

dislike: the food not a wow, the chairs not comfortable

like: by the sea and surrounded by beautiful houses and also the area itself is breath-taking.
