The barramundi was good, the steaks were good, the wine was good and all loved the peanut butter dessert. The service is unsurpassed and we would return here without question. They also serve breakfast and lunch, next to the beach!

This was not among the best restaurants I went to in Port Douglas, though that could be because of our choice of dish. We chose the Bouillabaisse, a dish for two. It was quite small and rather ordinary, with little variety of seafood. Nothing like...More

Beautiful setting to enjoy my coffee, you can hear the waves in the background. Only had coffee today but I'll be back for a meal. Staff friendly and cost average

Directly opposite 4 mile beach so good views, super friendly staff and fantastic food. Who could ask for more? Not us, we dined there twice in 6 nights.

Hi Robert, Thanks for your review, we appreciate you taking the time to leave your feedback. No doubt we do get affected by the wind but it can still be worth it to be overlooking such a beautiful beach.

Had dinner at HiTide on our first night at Port Douglas. Food and service were excellent. Sesame prawns were beautiful, as was the fish of the day. Staff were very friendly and ensured we enjoyed our evening. Highly recommended

A great spot to grab a morning coffee or settle in for a delicious brunch. I highly recommend the smashed avocado on pumpkin bread.

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.
