Though I was disappointed that there was only one vegetarian option, they more than made up for it with their amazing service. Our waiter was hilarious! Such a fun dining experience.

Beautiful cafe with a view of the 4 mile beach. Staff are terrific and the breakfast is wonderful. We would sit for a couple of hours just enjoying the coffee, breakfast and views. Great way to start the day.

Great food and service!!! Would definitely come back. In my opinion the best food I had in Port Douglas. All plates ordered where great. The house made gnocchi, the tuna entree and the fish were very good!

Food and service was amazing. You must try the confit duck salad, it was truly an excellent dish. Service is second to none and the view is just as good. Make sure you take the time to have lunch here

We stayed at Peninsula Boutique Hotel and dined here for lunch and ordered room service dinner. Food is super delicious - the salmon fish cakes were great and my Partner had cheeseburger which he enjoyed. Our waitress was lovely. A great place in Port Douglas....More

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.
