The service at this restaurant was outstanding - the wait staff had a sense of humour and made the night very special. The ambience is brilliant, such a beautiful setting and we love the aquarium in the toilets!!! and the Zinc spots and little messages on the floor. Little touches. the food was delicious - beautifully presented and very tasty and fresh. Highly recommend.

A faboulous dining experience There are strains on all restaurants in Port Douglas at this time especially with staff availability but you would not be aware of it at Zinc.
The food was well prepared and presented. I thouroughly enjoyed my meal.

We were lucky to have a 4course menu with matching wines. The South Australian wines were excellent and the food was delicious. Thoroughly recommend dining here.

Had high expectations and saved for our last night of holidays. Left waiting in bar for our booked table and forgotten about! Finally get our table half hour late and wait for food was long. Food really very average for prices charged. Disappointed. Particularly barramundi was overcooked and tasteless.

We were seated in the old disco area where the background noise was far too loud.

Food was excellent, and service cheerful.

We had a most enjoyable night although I would have liked to be in the other outdoor area and not on the street.
Our main waitress was so lovely, she was most friendly and we did ask her many questions. It is so nice to hear their story. It helps make our night interesting when dining as a couple to be able to talk to other people….

What a gorgeous first stop for our first night in Port Douglas. We had arrived late in Cairns and made the trip up for a 9pm sitting. Balmy evening, good wine, tender and delicious eye fillet and crunchy frites...Zinc did not disappoint!!

Somewhat disappointing dining experience given its reputation as one of the top rated restaurants in Port Douglas. As a group of 8 the menu was widely sampled and while most meals were quite good none were exceptional. The mackerel was a stand out failure, initially in its bland presentation as a very small portion swimming in liquid and then the flavours were equally uninspiring.
Not the fine dining experience we had hoped for as a holiday highlight.

Wait staff run off their feet. The table next to us (4 people) very noisy. The quality of food was very good. We have been to Zinc many times in many years. Would recommend Zinc.

Great meal. Local fish was simple and cooked perfectly and my partner had comfort food ... beef bourgignone that was equally delicious with mixed steamed greens to accompany and share. Gelato to finish.

After waiting at the reception desk, with at least 3 waitresses walking past, looking but without acknowledging us, we finally got seated. The menu was small and underwhelming but the food we ordered was really well cooked. Our water glasses were not refilled without asking and overall, the service was very unpolished for a restaurant that wasn’t exceptionally busy.
