The Tides Review
Local residents and repeat visitors agree that the Tides is one of the island's best restaurants. Enter the courtyard of what was once a private mansion and have a cocktail at the cozy bar or visit the on-site art gallery before proceeding to your seaside table. Perhaps the most intriguing feature of this stunning setting—besides the sound of waves crashing onto the shore just feet away—is the row of huge tree trunks growing right through the dining room. The food is equally dramatic. Chef Guy Beasley and his team give a contemporary twist to fresh seafood, filet of beef, rack of lamb, and other top-of-the-line main courses by adding inspired sauces and delicate vegetables and garnishes. A full vegetarian menu is also available. Save room for the sticky toffee pudding—definitely worth the calories.
