I am delighted to bring you another venue highlight today- the highly-rated Tides Restaurant located in Holetown, St. James. Tides specializes in fresh seafood and boasts a wide and varied menu which also caters to vegetarian and vegan tastes.

Some photos my husband took on our visit

This fine dining restaurant is owned by a husband and wife team- Guy and Tammy Beasley. Maybe this partnership is the key ingredient in setting Tides apart, because it does have a very romantic ambiance. A fact I can personally attest to, having been “officially proposed” to there by my husband. We were already engaged at the time but hubby still wanted to do the whole ‘bended knees’ bit and surprise me with the ring he picked out.

He could not have chosen a better place to do it. I was blown away by the divine food (I’m a dedicated foodie so that’s no small feat) and warm, impeccable service. By the time dessert rolled around and the ring emerged, I was sitting on cloud nine.


Anyway, I was completely enamored by our experience there, from beginning to end and definitely recommend it to you lovebirds.
