Ambiance 5/5 Food 4 Service 4.5 The food was alright....until desert came then it was perfection. Had the flourless chocolate cake. Best desert I've ever had in my life, hands down. The service was kind and attentive. And the ambiance was out of this world. Very well put together.

Had dinner last night at The Tides. The setting is magical, warm tropical breezes blowing through the restaurant and the sound of the waves just steps away. Service was outstanding from the moment we were greeted at the front door. Make sure to go early and enjoy a drink in the beautiful bar area or outside on the patio. Our... More

.....Tides is a beautiful dining room and watching the sun set over the sea with a glass of champagne was really special. However the food didn't live up to either the location or the hype. With the exception of the Asian Beef Salad the food was bland and of mediocre quality. Perhaps we are used to European fine dining but... More

We are lucky to be able to enjoy dinner at Tides each time we visit Barbados, and wanted to mention that, as good as it has been for the past many years, the team at Tides have taken the dining experience to a whole new level. The renovations completed last year have made the restaurant even more beautiful, and the... More

Lived up to all the hype and our expectations. Wonderful service, exquisite food and an excellent wine list. We expected to be underwhelmed but quite the opposite which is rare given the reputation Tides has.

Love the new decor, works really well. Lobster ravioli excellent as always. Salmon ok. Lamb chops cooked perfectly but hated the heavy stodgy risotto cake in my mind it didn't work. The pork tenderloin could have been a little more generous but nice meal. Service good and cocktails and wine expensive but not ridiculous. $250 for 2 of us.

Thank Stellachristine
