An expensive treat but fantastic food. The menu choice was brilliant and the staff were good fun and ensured they looked after you through the whole evening without being annoying. We loved it that much we went twice during our stay.

Our last night and we went to The Tides, if only we had found you sooner!! Friendly staff seated us in this lovely space. It was bustling with almost a full house. The server's were helpful and discreet. The biggest wonderful surprise was how great the food was presented and tasted! Absolutely delicious! We each had something different and it... More

Great food, excellent service and stunning surroundings. Favourite restaurant in Holetown, Barbados. A definite must for all foodies. Booking essential during high season and do ask for a table with an ocean view.

Meal is excellent, and menu selection outstanding. Service, and attention superb, this is a must visit if you want to splurge, and it can be a little pricey but definitely worth it. This is always our last night out when we are in Barbados, having been there 7 times.

I'd read a lot about the place before going to Barbados, and it didn't disappoint! We went for lunch twice whilst we were in Barbados. The set menu for $72 Barbados was fantastic value for money, the food was superb. Try the calamari Carbonara for starters, the fish main was superb, as was the Jerk chicken salad for main. Service...

We ate at The Tides twice during a two week stay in Barbados and each time were totally satisfied with every aspect of the restaurant operation, every member of staff we met, the food quality, it's quantity and presentation and finally the cleanliness. Having eaten once at the Cliff and being significantly underwhelmed by the service we cancelled a repeat... More

The location, service and food made for a perfect evening and for 'fine dining' was very good value. Our favourite restaurant during the holiday..worth booking early to ensure a table by the sea.

Had a great meal here, flavours and presentation were all world class - like the fact that the Head Chef comes out to meet people too, lovely chap! We brought our baby here and next time probably wouldn't as it is mainly adults in the restaurant, the staff were really friendly and knowledgeable, the gallery is definitely worth a look... More
