“We left hungry after terrible service”
Reviewed January 20, 2014

Our family of 6 had a small celebration during the December holidays, and the informal vibe of the Riptide restaurant in Southbroom seemed the perfect place. We were received in a friendly manner and placed our order. Our food arrived just under TWO hours later, and the portions were skimpy and very small. Many customers arriving after us were served before us.We had a huge bill to settle and my whole family left still hungry. On our way home we had to stop at a fast-food outlet to finish our meal.
We nick-named this restaurant the Rip-off restaurant and will never advise anyone to eat there.

“Would help if the address were correct”
Reviewed January 16, 2014 via mobile

Follow the signs for the Main Beach. It is NOT on Lagoon Drive but Imbezane Drive. Nice spot overlooking the Lagoon and the beach.

“Ripoff not riptide”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

Possibly we were expecting a lot more from this establishment as it is a long standing and well known restaurant in the area. From the start to end we found this restaurant below par in every respect.The cutlery had to be replaced for being dirty to the greasy tablecloth. The food was awful with overcooked, greasy fish and the fries looked and tasted like translucent sticks of oil filled tubes. The calamari was smothered in an unknown, oily sauce. I certainly wont go there ever again.

“Stay away!”
Reviewed December 27, 2013 via mobile

What a disappointment, cold food, bad service from manager (blaming staff for his incompetence in running a restaurant) and owner nowhere to be found. And the amount of calamari that we got and paid for was a joke! Overpriced!
