This would have been a 5 star review if not for a couple of small issues. We did our research prior to booking our first restaurant out after a 2 week lockdown on Melbourne. We checked where we could travel within 25 kms and found...Tides. Looked at the menu online and chose what we would order, which included the honey sriracha chicken wings, and double bruschetta for entree, and the seafood crepe and seafood pappardelle for mains. Arrived and was promptly seated in a great spot next to the central heater. Drink order was taken, and then the meals. Unfortunately as we were ordering the lovely waitress advised us the menu had just changed and the chicken and pappardelle was no longer on it. Bugger. Changed to the chicken satay for entree and pork ribs for main. Interestingly the Pork Ribs were advertised on the menu as 600-800 gms of ribs for $65. So not sure what I received, 600, 700 or 800. My base line for tasty ribs is Hogs Breath where it is clearly specified on their menu, 800 gms of pork ribs for $45. That said, all four meals were very good. The crepe was excellent with big prawns, fish and scallops in a creamy sauce wrapped in a thin crepe. The ribs had the meat dropping off the bone in a delicious sauce, although I believe the serving size was around 650-700gms. Chips were nice and crispy. The service was great and setting also good with the central fireplace. Total price was $171 for the two of us. Funny enough, when I got home and checked the menu again on the website it had been updated to reflect the new menu, so good work on that one. We look forward to coming back and trying four different meals including the ones we missed this time around.More

We were pretty excited to be able to return to one of our favourite local restaurants for lunch last week. 5 diners, 5 different meal selections and everything absolutely delicious. Although working on a slightly reduced menu there was something for everyone even me, a...fussy and difficult vegetarian (loving the new vegie pattie by the way!). Choices for us on the day included steak risotto, seafood crepe, chicken and leek crepe and a perfectly cooked steak. Generous serves - too full for dessert sadly. Hats off to the lovely staff working through the difficult Covid times. Appreciated all your efforts to make our lunch a safe and happy experience. Will be back soon.More

No salad options, no soups, no vegan dishes, one vegetarian dish. No lunch menu. . Poor selection of foods. I wasn’t offered an alternative so ordered something I didn’t want to eat as I didn’t want to complain in front of my guest.More

You must be kidding. One week out of lockdown, with current restrictions of only 20 guests per seating, extremely strict cleaning and hygiene measures in place and you give us a poor review due to lack of vegan and vegetarian meals. Winter has just started...More

On drive to Mornington to start our holiday we “found” this gem warmly greeted the restaurant is lovely well maintained clean an plenty of space between tables for conversation. Have to say all staff were really friendly and know their food,even friendly smiles from the...guy in the kitchen from where we were sat we could see into a amazingly clean organised kitchen. Great menu really varied choices for everyone we went street food ,light bites, lamb flatbread for me fantastic plenty of lamb and the cheese had great bite, he had chicken and mango cups which apparently was amazing no opportunity from hubby to taste it was just so good. Very very busy but food was quick and quality excellent would be very happy to try other options on the menu and come back on way homeMore
