We had some cocktails here during the happy hour. Was dissapointed that only two cocktails are available for happy hour. We ordered off the normal cocktail menu so paid full price. Although the drinks were very nice there was no love, meaning no garnishs on...More

Visited here twice during our stay.Our first meal was good but on our second visit the food was very second rate and disappointing. The $10 happy hour cocktail consisted of a massive chunk of ice and not much else! I would not recommend this restaurant...More

Hi Tide is situated away from the 'action' of Port Douglas on the Esplanade opposite Four Mile Beach. It is a lovely setting looking through the palm trees to the water. Service somewhat relaxed, if anything on the slow side. Staff pleasant enough. Food good...More

We had a wonderful breakfast here - there are so many great options that it is hard to make a choice - but I suspect they're all amazing. We enjoyed the breakfast burger and cauliflower fritters. Coffee was the best we've had in Port Douglas...More

This was a great breakfast with table view of the ocean. I had the chorizo with chive potato hash.... probably the best thing I've had in Australia so far. The service was good and coffee was good. Decent prices. Will definitely be back.

We fancied some local fish and chips in a nice setting. Got that and more sitting in the front of the courtyard. Really good service and snapper, chips, mushy peas and tartare sauce. Sometimes you just crave something basic. Plenty more choices then f&c. Chocolate...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.
