Unfortunately the seafood chowder we ordered did not meet expectations. More like an entree with stale bread on the side. The waiters on the other hand were lovely

A gem of a restaurant! On a quiet street within easy walking distance of Port Douglas CBD, the service was second to none and the food was excellent. We would certainly go back when and if we visit Port Douglas again!

View was great. Food was very tasty but the mains were rather small. The baklava desert is not to be missed.

Food was passable up to the time that we were served a prawn dish with frozen prawns. Absolutely not acceptable to charge good prices for frozen food😡

Thank you for your review. Although I am disappointed to read that your experience was below expectations, I appreciate your time in sharing your opinions and allowing us to improve our offering. We try very hard to source fresh produce where possible, looking all over Australia to get our ingredients. Some times living in PD is like living at the end of the earth when it comes to having access to fresh ingredients, however, I assure you that the majority of our menu is freshly sourced.

Hi Tide restaurant was average. Not a huge choice on the menu. Food was okay but nothing to brag about. Not sure that we would go back.
Location is perfect just need to improve the food.

The oysters are divine and the Barramundi was sweet, moist and fell off the fork. Accompanied by lovely vegetables and wines.... loved it!

I was very disappointed in the food. We ordered the ravioli and the meager portion was tasty but, it was barely an entree` size dish. We are definite foodies and dine out a lot everywhere we travel. This restaurant to me is one to avoid. Too expensive for little return.

Main meals we enjoyed, we felt starters, entrees were a tad expensive and just would have liked a garlic/ cheese bread on starters menu.
Cocktails very nice but at $18-00 each ( couldn’t have two)

There was a cool breeze which made it uncomfortable sitting outside. My dish was very nice but my wife's fish was average, well below other restaurants at Port Douglas

Value for money, the food was not good.
Entree scallops & the pork had no flavour.
Mains tortellini was lovely but not worth the money.
Location was beautiful.
Service was lovely too. the sweet NY American girl was very attentive.

A place which totally surprised and impressed us both. A very ‘bland’ cafe on approach but once settled in, with menu in hand and a lovely glass of wine, perusing the menu, it was very impressive.
The view over 4 mile beach and the tranquility of the surroundings, along with amazing tasting and plated food, made this an night to remember.
Highly worth the choice if considering.

The food was great and the wait staff were wonderful. Regrettably the outdoor setting was a little spoiled by the wind that was unseasonally present.
