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.

“Surprising find - nice staff and tasty food”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

We stumbled on this place after being turned away from the nearby surf club as we missed their 3pm lunch cut off. The staff were welcoming and polite and the food was very fresh and tasty. Often eateries located in hotels are overpriced and the food average; Hi Tide is a great exception and we enjoyed the experience. The smoothies we had were delicious and the mango and chicken sandwich is a must-have for mango lovers. We plan to go back again for breakfast.

“Nice breakfast”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

Not a bad place at all. Only thing i didn't like was when i was told percolated coffee, was available, but for inhouse guests only, thought that was a little bit rude. Other then that, service and food good, and quite fast as well.Prices okay.

“Hidden gem”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

Wonderful little beach side cafe, with excellent menu, friendly staff, and reasonable prices. The "bucket of prawns" was wonderful; Sunday evening "Fish and Chips" which included Barramundi, for $20, was amazing value, and very yummy! Happy Hour $10 cocktails are a must!

“Great Atmosphere”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

Thoroughly enjoyed a lovely meal overlooking four mile beach. We sat out on the deck area and arrived during 'happy hour' for the $10 cocktails. A small restaurant with great views and an intimate atmosphere.
