We had our wedding reception in the Tides at The Bay Hotel. The view was stunning and we had a great time. We spent the night in the hotel and enjoyed the breakfast buffet with our visitors. The breakfast was delicious. One of our friends didn't like the runny scrambled eggs and we found out that you can get eggs... More

Tides belongs on everyone's list of destinations for great food and outstanding service. You cannot ever go wrong dining here, with the world's most wonderful atmosphere, weather... More

The breakfast buffet is strong on fruits and yogurt. Pretty average on the eggs and such. You must order from menu if you want eggs other than scrambled. Baked goods are nice and plenty to choose from. Coffee refills are scarce but can be flagged down. The view makes up for any inconvenience here.

I booked Valentine's Dinner for us and another couple and was not aware that this would be a buffet dinner (or else I wouldn't have booked - nothing worse than a romantic date and a buffet dinner). OK, the views are amazing, staff is nice, friendly and accomodating. But....pink bubbly was served at the entrance but it was warm. Why... More

Good service, nicely done springbok, decent wine, lovely setting. Avoid the film crews, they talk loudly about themselves and don't realise nobody's interested.

Friendly staff - we had our Christmas lunch here - plenty of staff. It's also where breakfast is served when staying at the hotel - lovely buffet, great choice.

Found this little place on our first day in Camp's Bay and after a long flight in from Singapore and navigating from the airport - were starving! And so glad we found Tides. The two for one meal deals are amazingly good value and it was quite possibly the best Chicken Parmy I've ever had. It was also where I... More

We popped into the Bay Hotel and just wanted a light snack and drink and were shown into this part of the Hotel Complex. We were the only guests as it was off season and the staff were really friendly and nothing was to much trouble. We would pop in again if staying nearby.
