If you ever in the mood for same good food check out The Tides Restuarant for some delicious foods.
Beautiful gem in Betty's Bay that met every expectation. Steak was done to order. Smoked salmon pasta was delicious. Meal portions were generous. Setting was romantic, relaxing and loved the Cuban music. Camembert and poached pear starter a must try. All in all, 6 out of 5.

Best restaurant in the area!!!!
I was initially resistant to add a review as already the good reputation of this restaurant is well known and as a result we struggle to get reservations for the restaurant when we're in Bettys. However, the harshness that some reviews have spewed may be their perception, but we've been going to the restaurant for so many years and I can't believe this is the same venue we go to. There are several restaurants in the strip from Pringle to Kleinmond and Arabella and the only ones worth attending for a dependably good meal and service are at Arabella and The Tides. Ask any local who frequents these. In my experience, treating restaurateurs with dignity and respect will go much further in getting an unsuitable situation remedied. If you do try them, I highly recommend our favourite starter - the snails and gorgonzola with the chefs home made focaccia!
Tides is the best local & casual restaurant, i dare you too try the others!!!!! and yes not everybody would agree, but ask the locals and they will tell you, if i look at the comments, i am shocked, i would wish for them (critics) too open up a restaurant and to deliver always the best service and food - Chefs are sensitive and remember temperamental!!!! so we all have our bad days!!!!!
Betty's bay is our second home, and the past 4 years has always been wonderful to be served by Lidia and her staff, in my view being in the restaurant industry before, is Lidia's husband very brave to be a Chef and i love his food on a regular basis with friends and family.
The consistency of food served in the past, Calamari starter - Steak with figs and blue cheese - Hake & Chips, for example was always the same and then i would try some new dishes - Seafood Pasta & plenty more.
All i can say, is good luck and keep up the good work, see you soon. C & R
