Attentive staff, delicious food, beautiful surroundings. Our fourth visit and about to book our next one. A visit to the island would not be the same without a Tides dinner

Another visit to a favorite restaurant - again excellent food & service, especially as they have a separate veggie menu. The surroundings are beautiful and staff professional but friendly.

Dining at Tides is always a treat. The restaurant is beautifully appointed with lots of discreet areas adding an air of intimacy - not an easy trick to pull off. Service is attentive but far from over-bearing and the food is nothing short of spectacular....More
