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.

Best waterfront location.

Great to sit and have a morning coffee!

So close to our hotel and the beach.

Visited here for lunch today and unfortunately we were very disappointed. Our group spent $245 on a 45 minute wait for bad food. The seafood didn't seem fresh and the burgers were dry. In saying that, the chips were lovely and it seemed like a great place for a drink. I really wouldn't recommend eating here, there are so many other lovely dining options in this beautiful town.

Hi Tide is in a great location just around the corner from Macossan St (main street), and opposite Four Mile Beach. It probably has lovely views through the trees to the water but we dined there at night so couldn't see much! We decided to sit at a table inside rather than on the deck and were happy with our choice. Lots of restaurants in Port Douglas have quite loud "background" music making having a decent conversation difficult but at Hi Tide the music was actually in the background. It made for a more relaxed dining experience on a week night.

The menu was not extensive but still had a sufficient number of choices. The food and the service were mostly very good. The only negative was the sweet potato rosti that accompanied the pork cutlet - it was dominated by so much black pepper that I just couldn't eat it. I tried but just had to give up. Apart from this one item, the food was enjoyable.

When we visit again, we'll probably go for lunch and enjoy the views and beach-side ambience. Hi Tide is also open for breakfast.

Not outstanding, but pleasant and relaxed like most of Port Douglas. Great location off 4 Mile Beach. Service willing but slow. Good for an unhurried lunch.
