We arrived at 3:20pm, 20 mins after lunch finished. This was not so bad as they do lunch until 3pm and after that they offer Tapas until dinner starts. We had the prawns & the fries with Aoki sauce plus 2 smoothies. Service was good....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.
