We have returned to the Tides for dinner every year since first coming to Barbados in 2006. We have never been disappointed with a meal. The food,service and decor are all of the highest quality and there is a great art gallery in the lobby.

We come here every year and whilst not a regular its always good to be made to feel very welcome. Food is always excellent and the staff and ambience worth the money. Typical Caribbean food, excellent seafood and curries.

I have seen travellers dress like this at Champers, however we like to dress up when we go out. The dress sandals are fine but I personally would not wear shorts to go out for dinner, neither would my husband.
