Port Douglas is known for it's seafood, it's also known to have every price range for dining on offer, including very expensive. Breakfast is definitely an art in Port Douglas and it's worth trying breakfast in a different cafe every morning during your stay.
Lunch is actually bigger on weekends when the Cairns locals visit Port Douglas but otherwise you may be surprised at how many restaurants are closed for lunch but that's due to the majority of visitors being out the full day on a Great Barrier Reef or hot air balloon or rainforest tour.
We've complied below the Port Douglas restaurants the Hot Air Balloon Port Douglas team have dined in personally and that we know and are happy to recommend and yes we did mean to include a pie shop in our list! Of course, it's always worth trying the local fish and chip shop too with a bottle of wine on Four Mile Beach at sunset!
