Hi my name is Mark Eberlein and i opened High Tide on St Agnes, Isles of Scilly in the summer of 2007 when Tristan Hick who has Coastguards Cafe (in the same building) asked if i would like to use the building in the evenings & so High Tide was born.
Having been a Chef for over 20 years now, I have a varied work history beginning in my home town of Martinborough in New Zealand, I started as a kitchen hand at the tender of 13 in a little Restaurant called The Zodiac.
I left school at the age of 16 and moved to Wanganui to do my chef training & gain more experience in various Restaurants & Cafes after which i left NZ moving to England where i started in the North working my way down South ending up in Cornwall helping my father run a pub.
In 1999 i went to work for John & Pauline Dart at the Turks Head on St Agnes where i worked for two seasons before going back to NZ.
After a short time working in Rotorua i ended up back in Martinborough, I worked at the Martinborough Hotel for a couple of years as Sous Chef when one day John & Pauline stayed at the hotel whilst on holiday & one evening over a fine bottle of port i decided to go back to the Islands & I've never looked back, doing four more years at The Turks Head before opening High Tide.
My wife Emma is from Leeds but has a long family history on St Agnes, she is also an Artist & many of her paintings grace the walls of high tide - all of which are for sale, Emma also helps out in the Restaurant from time to time when busy.
I hope to see you soon in my little restaurant by the sea.
