Dining at Tides was the highlight of our holiday! The seafood was perfectly cooked. Bar service was a little slow. Delicious desserts. We will be back!

Four of us celebrated a birthday and 2 x anniversaries with the 5 course Degustation Dinner. Absolutely delightful. Great presentation and a taste sensation with each course. The Wine Package was an added treat. Each wine was perfectly paired to the different courses. Not a cheap night but thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

We were invited to Tides by a friend who is there regularly. From his report we expected a good experience and were not disappointed. The food was excellent. The menu had good variety.

Lovely spot for this event. The staff were great and attentive to all our needs. The food was beautiful especially for that many people. Nothing was too much trouble. Everyone present from overseas as well thought it was a wonderful day and such lovely memories.

Tides is a slightly upmarket restaurant with a fantastic menu. A blend of seafood and traditional meals served in good sizes and very appealing to the palate. I had the Cous Cous Seafood and it was amazing. Make sure you try the selection platter for the entree for you and your partner

We made our booking online (very convenient) and confirmation prior by text. Met at the door by enthusiastic waiters and our table overlooked the Bullock Beach shore and nightlife below. The attention to the menu, descriptions recited by the well trained staff, and relaxed ambience made our experience very memorable, especially the little treat at the end of the evening,... More
