    We had a lovely dinner and the service was excellent. I had the prawn linguini which was delicious but there weren’t enough prawns in the dish which was disappointing. We would definitely return.

    Our seating at Zinc was fantastic. To start with, the service was incredibly with Monique being extremely friendly and helpful with guiding us to the right meals. The food itself was sensational, all extremely fresh, flavourful and looking stunning. The drinks were the same with extremely quick service for both food and drinks. Congratulations to the whole team, you should be extremely proud of the service you deliver and we will certainly make a note of coming back to Port, especially to revisit Zinc!

    Nice food and good service, had the local fish fillet in a curry sauce for main. My only criticism is that there was no rice on the menu and chips (the only other carbohydrate) was not suitable with this delicate dish.

    Eaten here in the past and it was exceptional. Not last Saturday. Eaten by mosquito's. Food was good. Service was poor and drinks were watery and warm. And when you buy a $17 cocktail that is not acceptable. Very disappointed.

    I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. The food is of mixed quality. I ordered the Lamb Rack. About fifty percent of the meat was fat! I told the waitress. She talked to the manager and owner and gave me a refund rather than give me a new meal. The place was not very busy so I thought maybe the owner or manager would come by to apologize for the preparation of the lamb. No such luck! We left feeling very under appreciated.

    We have dined at Zinc over the years for special occasions and have found it an exceptional experience every time. It manages to fuse all the elements that make a memorable dining experience. The menu has a number of delicious vegetarian options, which means my boyfriend can have an equally delicious meal. When a meal makes me smack my lips and make pleasing sounds, I know it has been made by someone who understands food and loves to create a meal that is one of life’s pleasures. The wait staff are very welcoming and manage to balance providing assistance and being unobtrusive. Zinc has a comfortable and tranquil atmosphere, which means the diners can enjoy not only the food, but the conversation. Thank you

    Started off with one of the best Bloody Mary’s we’ve ever tasted. Even got a few tips from the bartender. Food and service were fantastic. We were here last year and the food was even better than last time. And last time was excellent. Highly recommended.

    Delicious dinner experience at Zinc! Minnie, our server, made the night extra special with her bubbly personality and professional service. The gnocchi is divine, as well as the roasted vegetables and rack of lamb. The atmosphere is chic and relaxed. We tried other restaurants while visiting PD and this one ranks the highest. I would highly recommend.

    The food was not as good as I was hoping for the price, I had the risotto and it didn't have much flavour at all. Mains were bought out with entrees due to kitchen staff cooking all the food at once. Good selection of wines and cocktails. Very good with allergy requirements.

    We enjoyed the occasion and the food was delicious. Unfortunately the table was attracting flies and it was very hot. We were going to stay for dessert but we decided to go elsewhere because of the flies. I did tell the manager at the front desk later. Thank you for the lovely dinner and attentive service given. Best wishes and Happy New Year.
