The Tides is a great buffet with so many different kind of dishes that your biggest problem here is to choose and not eat to much. The dessert and cake buffet is marvellous and the kids love the chocolatefontain. I have been here several times.

I've been to many buffets in Cebu and Lapu-Lapu. This is one more where ordering a la carter is the best choice: reasonably economical, food prepared to order, and good service.

Bit expensive but food was just a Heaven!! Forget your diet and get on with it.All you need to do especially summer/holiday yo need to wake up early to queue up because lots of empty tummies waiting also.Peak time 7am i think so if you go there around 9am you dont need to line.
