Food was delicious and for the most part service was good. A little slow with drinks though. Nice location and comfortable seating.

We love Zinc, coming to PD twice a year for the last 15 years it is a tradition to dine there and have introduced Zinc to many family and friends. This time we were disappointed. We booked online for an inside table but we’re seated outside on the footpath area. Diners smoking outside wafted our way so we asked to be moved. The inside position was much nicer. We ordered 2 mains only. My lamb gnocchi had amazing flavor and depth however the temperature varied throughout the dish, cold in spots. The gnocchi was over cooked and soggy. My husband’s barramundi was beautiful. There were a group having cocktails that we’re making loud noises and carrying on that we’re spoken to by management. This is not acceptable at a restaurant of this caliber and price point. We look forward to coming back next trip and will hope for a better experience.

Unfortunately didn't live up to expectation. The dish both my partner and I wanted to order, and the reason we decided to dine at Zinc, was "unavailable". Meals were good but nothing special, particularly for the premium price being charged. Service was adequate. Decor was well presented but ultimately let down by the paper table clothes - unbefitting of a venue such as Zinc and a missed opportunity.

The food was especially good, we had the steak and beef bourguignon and a some chips on the side. The flavours and taste were excellent for both meals.
Took advantage of the free bottle of red wine offer and finished with a few house cocktails. Delicious food and drink and great service.
When you’re there check out the toilet amenities view which is a full size aquarium, so cool and the best bathroom I’ve been in at a restaurant.

We dined at Zinc 12 years ago on our honeymoon and returned last night with our 3 kids and we we not disappointed! The food was delicious and the kids meals were super affordable at $15 including icecream. We liked that the kids meals were good quality fresh food. The wine list is extensive and our meals were delicious!
Thanks Zinc!

Delicious food and good service. Pork belly for a starter was yummy and can’t go past a classic seafood linguine and this one did not disappoint. Definitely recommend!

We sat outside which was a bit quieter and what we felt like that evening. The flavours in the food were amazing, definitely good quality. The service couldn’t be faulted. We were impressed.

I had a birthday dinner with my partner . Had the barramundi and he had the lamb gnocchi . I wish my fish portion was a bit bigger but it was nice ! Gnocchi itself was very good, pilowy soft. But the braised Lamb could've had more spices to it. Cocktails were ok, last time visited was made better. Restaurant is beautiful, nice setting, romantic. I will still come back !

Rustic fries were the best I’ve ever tasted, crunchy on the outside and like mashed potato inside. The steak however was over cooked not medium rare as requested. When you’re restaurant is a steak & seafood restaurant, unless you want to be known for your chips, some extra attention needs to be taken in the kitchen to serve steak as requested.

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.
