Great service in a great location. It’s the kind of restaurant you can get dressed up but can equally go in shorts and a T-shirt. Food was delicious and served at perfect temperature.

We had a great table - where we could hear the sea. We all enjoyed our meals, though mine was a tad cold.

We enjoyed a number of meals at this restaurant on this trip. The menu is good, the chefs creative and the produce used fresh and fine. At lunchtime, there is a nice view over the beach. The staff are helpful and friendly. All in all,...More

My boys and I met friends here after a 4km beach run so we were damned hungry! And what a way to replenish with bacon, eggs and unreal hashbrowns! Not to mention the fantastic staff. A great place to eat and chill.

We arrived here for late breakfast only to discover that in Port Douglas many places don't serve breakfast after 11am, and this was one of them! (we're accustomed to all-day breakfasts in Melbourne.) So we enjoyed lunch instead. The menu is modern and varied, and...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.
