Had a lovely meal here. The food was very good and the service friendly and efficient. Staff were great at helping us with the menu as there were fish we hadn’t encountered before. We really enjoyed the barramundi and Spanish mackerel (a delicate white fish)....More

Not really our type of lunch or dinner menu. We're more into simple cuisine rather than some of the fancy stuff on offer like fondant potatoes etc. Don't let that put you off as they are happy to change certain items, so if you want...More

We were staying at the Hotel Peninsula which is where this restaurant is located. The service is excellent and the food is quite good. I do suggest you make reservations because it fills up too fast. Do ask for an outdoor table.

We ate here with our two young children several times during our stay for both breakfast and a lunch- and I can't rate it highly enough. Very friendly staff, amazing food - and a wonderful view.

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.
