“A great selection of dishes at an excellent price”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

Tides offer a great variety of dishes to choose from and I specially like how they would add local Cebu dishes. You can always get good western food in most five star hotel, but not all five star hotel offer local comfort food.

Despite being so close to sources of seafood, there aren't much choices of seafood at Tides.

“Good dinner. Good breakfast ”
Reviewed 17 May 2014 via mobile

Hosted by the Shangrila resort Cebu. Caters for many Asian and European tastes. Not the grandest selection I've experienced but considering you on a tropical island it was all good. For those living at the resort there are two breakfast venues. Tides is one of them. It overlooks the gardens with inside and outside seating. O yes. The egg station was great.

“Amazing and Satisfying !”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

What made our wedding anniversary celebration extra special ? It’s the TIDES restaurant buffet in Shangrila Mactan, Cebu . Our breakfast buffet ( free our overnight stay in their equally beautiful and relaxing deluxe room accommodation ) were staggering with food from a variety of cultures. Me and my husband were overjoyed to see courses of western, Filipino, Korean, Japanese , Mexican food. Honestly, we could not figure what to eat with the overwhelming choices. I remember what I posted in one of my travel and food blog to first plan for your meal . So roam around and took pictures of the food first before satisfying my palates.

Not only are their food great but also their staff. Special thanks to Miss Early Jean and Sir Dick for making our buffet special. We were actually late for breakfast but they accommodated us as soon as we entered the place. I’ve learned that the TIDES is serving fresh foods. They don’t recycle food from breakfast for lunch or lunch for dinner. Wow! That is truly great. Whew! The whole page wouldn’t be enough to express my delightful and sumptuous meals at the Tides (I have 3 plates in a row.. you know..) so I would summarize it in 2 words… Amazing and Satisfying!

( P.S. - Good news! The place would be renovated soon for a bigger area for a bigger crowd)
