We had a beautiful meal last night. The salmon sashimi was the best I’ve ever tasted.
All three of us enjoyed our meals, the waitress Selena was very helpful and attentive. Will definitely dine again as we are locals.

Unfortunately one of the main courses wasn’t very nice and management weren’t very accomodating. Only discounting a small starter ($10). Money wasn’t the issue but the principle of a $50 main not being up to scratch and there was no offer to re cook or order another main, the kitchen offered salt to “dress” the meal. A bit disappointed considering the status of the restaurant.

The food was outstanding, lamb gnocchi and all the seafood dishes beautifully done.
The service was exceptional with our staff attentive to all our needs.
A lovely place to sit in the garden, music in the background and other diners obviously enjoying as much as we did.

Seated outside, very nice atmosphere. Was very busy so we expected service to be a bit slower than normal. I ordered steak for my main (medium rare) it was medium to well done. Manager apologized for this and offered to re-cook the meal which I declined, when we got the bill it was removed from the account, kudos to him for looking after us. Would have loved to try them again but we only had limited time in Port Douglas.

Our experience at Zinc was one of the highlights of our port Douglas trip.

Ambiance outside was ideal despite the brief violent rainstorm adding to the music.

Booking made in July. Confirmation text sent the day before. On arrival, told they were closing due to Melbourne cup. We were left with no help to find alternative dining or apology. Left on the street all dressed up with no where to go, literally. Extremely poor service and communication.

Beautiful place. When Zinc says it celebrates the natural flavour of the ingredients, they mean it. Food is delicious and big servings too (had the linguine and beef cheeks) yum!

I pre booked all of our restaurants but did not know about Zinc. Cancelled our least favourite restaurant to fit it in and so very happy we did. Did the degustation which was fabulous. Staff attentive and unobtrusive. A must do In Port Douglas. Loved everything about it- wine, food, service, fairy lights and fish tank in bathroom. ❤️

Excellent menu selection all 8 guests enjoyed their meals. Very pleased to see so many vegetarian and gluten-free meals. Nice touch is the pairing of wines with food on menu.
I would definitely book again.

Although the menu is not extensive there is variety which covers all dietary needs. The food was delivered perfectly to time, not too fast, not too slow. The meals were of good size, cooked perfectly and delicious. The service was excellent.

Reliably excellent! Our favourite go-to each time we visit Port Douglas. Professional, friendly service with perfect eye for detail. Food excellent with enticing plating. Relaxed, tropical vibe. We love that we can tke our little dog. Good value, although $12 for a floret of steamed broccoli is pushing it. Serena, our waitperson was great!
