Proffering magnificent views and a breezy open elegant dining experience, Tide is yet another dining venue at the Westin Langkawi Resort and Spa that won’t disappoint. A more casual upbeat feel during the day transmutes into a calmer, semi fine dining milieu in the evenings. A full menu highlighting pizza, pasta, salads and snacks dominate the menu during the day, where the evenings see a replacement of pizza with a seafood on ice display where guests can choose their catch and liaise with chefs regarding its preparation method. Displaying an international theme, you’ll find a bit of everything on the menu.

Our visit was for a late lunch and we were greeted with drafts from the sea, the sound of rustling trees gently blowing in the breeze and the soft scent of the ocean. As is our custom, we asked for recommendations from the waiters as to the most popular dishes.  A soup, salad and spring rolls were suggested for starters. The Duck Spring Rolls were a show stopping kick off with Chinese style roasted duck, mint, coriander, onions, chili and cashew nuts wrapped in supple rice paper and joined by a sesame and soy dressing. Tide’s Caesar Salad came with crisp coz lettuce, beef bacon bits, anchovies, crunchy cheese oregano croutons and garlic dressing. The Roasted Hon-Shimeji Mushrooms Soup was creamy and topped with roasted field mushrooms extra virgin olive oil giving a perfect contrast of textures rarely found in a soup.

Next up were the mains and pasta and pizza were the proposals of our servers. A Carbonara Spaghetti with beef bacon, egg yolk, cream and parmesan cheese was a satisfying tummy filler and the Wagyu Pizza, even though looking big enough for four, was hurriedly consumed by hubby – stir-fried Australian Wagyu beef in Chinese black pepper sauce, tricolor bell peppers, onions, cashews and mozzarella cheese provided a topping that the thin base could barely support. Knife and fork needed to eat this meal. Even with belts bulging there’s always a cavity for dessert. In this case, a Heavy Chocolate Mousse with a berry sorbet and chocolate swirl. Plush velvety dark cacao mousse was only brought to a higher level with the light tart berry sorbet.
