Seriously some of the best service we’ve had in Australia (including hatted restaurants). Oh, and the food was delicious!

We had 2 entrees and dessert. Both the sesame prawns and pork belly were amazing! Superb mix of sweet, crisp, salty and piquant with the pork and the prawns and sauce were to die for!

Easy going lunch between stints at the pool and beach. Best burger I have had in years. My wife thoroughly enjoyed the confit duck salad. Banana and Chai smoothie is a knockout. Great food and friendly professional service in an outstanding location.

What should have been a mediocre dinner turned into a great experience. It was a rainy night, but we chose to sit outside with the protection of a transparent, plastic tarp. We had a delightful waitress, Anna-Sophie, who helped us with our selections. By the...More

All of Port Douglas is easily walkable. This place has a view of the ocean (through the trees) with good food.

Went here for lunch. The service, food and coffee were excellent. Add to this a relaxed atmosphere and beautiful view and you would be hard pressed to find a better place to enjoy a meal out at any time of the day.

Thanks for visiting Hi Tide, we are so glad you enjoyed your lunch with us and there is no better way to spend an afternoon than overlooking Four Mile Beach with a Happy Hour Cocktail in hand.

Casual, comfortable attire is what is required in the tropics and is best in Port Douglas. Whatever you are comfortable in!

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.
