This restaurant is in a boutique hotel. Is is small and quaint with a beautiful view. The servers were friendly and the food delicious. What more could you want?

Located as part of a hotel/apartment has both indoor and outdoor seating. It poured really hard that night and we were glad to be seated inside. The lamb. And recommended and did not disappoint. Service was great with all recommended food in line with expectations.

We had lunch on the porch, overlooking the ocean. Fresh grilled shrimp salads that were delicious and reasonable.

The Restaurant menu, food and service are amazing. whilst the menu is not extensive this is more than made up for by the quality and selection. The only restaurant that has a Coral Sea View in Port Douglas!

Highly recommend this cafe for breakfast. The outdoor terrace overlooks beautiful Four Mile beach. They also have inside seating too. As it’s away from the main strip of shops, it’s far more relaxing and quiet. The food was amazing & comparable price to other cafes...More

Casual, comfortable attire is what is required in the tropics and is best in Port Douglas. Whatever you are comfortable in!

Description
For a long while Hi Tide Cafe, Bar, Restaurant has been a local's secret, and no wonder because this is as close to a beachfront hideaway as it gets in the middle of Port Douglas. Indeed, if you're looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of Macrossan Street and enjoy a home style meal or one of our nightly specials, a cocktail or cool beer with the soft sea breeze the tide will bring you here. Nestled oceanside in the Peninsula Boutique Hotel. Hi Tide looks directly out onto 4 Mile Beach and the Coral Sea. It's cool without being over designed, warm and welcoming without sacrificing a certain sophistication and, well, they have the most amazing cocktail selection.
