Dined here for my wife's birthday. Service was perfect. Beautiful food. Spoilt for choice. Amazing presentation of dessert for her birthday on the house. Well done team. Made her day. Highly recommend The Tides. Breakfast also amazing and service to match.

Got fed up looking at mixed reviews for restaurants to dine at that evening. It was then I we saw the menu for The Tides restaurant lying on the desk in our room. A hugh menu with something for everyone. So off we went.
There is even a 2 course set menu ($45) or 3 course ($48). A saving of almost $20 off the price if the items were bought individually. The service was excellent as was the food presentation and quality.
Each dish on the menu has a recommended wine.
Selecting our meal choices was difficult as there was such a great selection.
Another little stand out item is that the restaurant menu has backlit pages making it very easy to read.....no glasses need.
The restaurant overlooks a river that runs past and has a nice outdoor area for pre meal drinks.
The experience was so good we returned for breakfast the next morning and were not disappointed.
We only became aware afterwards but some of the surrounding motels are extended a discount that is available to their guests and the meal can be charged direct so worth checking up on.
Highly recommend.

What a lovely place to dine.
The lighting was amazing, just enough in the right areas. The led menu was quite flash and added to the experience.
I had dinner here two nights in a row and both times didn’t disappoint. Great service from the staff. Oh and the food,,, omg very nice!! Well done team.

I was a guest inhouse and dined two consecutive nights in a row. The service was exemplary. The first night I had the roast of the day and the second a duck risotto. The food was exquisite. Five stars.
