Tides, St. James

Balmore House
St. James, Barbados
TEL: 246-432-8356

Housed in an open-air coral building, this beachfront restaurant in Holetown is divided into several dining areas, including the tree house, which has huge tree trunks growing through the roof; the garden gazebo, surrounded by sheer white drapes; and the bar, filled with colorful local artwork from the on-site Tides Art Gallery. Most tables provide views of the ocean as well as the adjacent candlelit garden. Created by chef-owner Guy Beasley, the internationally influenced Caribbean menu includes such dishes as lobster and wild mushroom risotto, and spice-rubbed monkfish with mustard-orange sauce. Desserts like the sticky toffee pudding are also popular.

Insider Tip:

If you’re a big fan of the restaurant’s signature lobster risotto appetizer, feel free to request an entrée-size portion of the dish; the chef is happy to oblige.
