    We were poked into a little corner right at the back beside a pole; there were much nicer tables that we could of been seated at. Food was lovely however; I think that a meal should come with some sort of vegetables and not have to purchase sides to these.

    Pleasant ambience. Staff seemed under pressure which is understandable at the moment. My steak was over cooked and they did offer to re-cook. Tad pricey. Food was pretty good.

    We were looking forward to our reservation at Zinc but overall sadly disappointed. Did not enjoy being seated near noisy people on the pavement with passers by. Didn’t feel romantic or special. Enjoyed my Daintree cocktail. Pork tenderloin was average but prawns were very tasty. Reef fish very good. Barramundi had a muddy texture but curry sauce was tasty. Average light chocolate dessert. Service average evidently not too experienced but pleasant staff. Watergate offered a much better ambiance, service and selection of finer food for a similar price.

    Wife booked for my 32nd birthday, it wasn’t exactly fine dining so I was surprised the portion sizes were miserably small. Service was good and food came fast. But I can’t stress enough, steak was half well done and half medium rare and tasted like the grill plate. I think we paid the tourist tax here. Edit: went to The Watergate the next night and it was much better.

    We sat outside which was lovely. The waitress took a little while to come take our order. There was soft music playing which was nice. The food was amazing! We had the cob loaf, halloumi for entree and beef cheeks and gnocchi for mains and it was melt in your mouth amazing. We ordered a couple of cocktails also which was yummy. Would 100% recommend for dinner.

    The main issue for our visit was service. Trying to order drinks took forever!!!! Then when drinks and food turned up the staff had no idea who they were going to? We had two tables (total 18 people) and it was a long, long wait to get a drink.

    Service was terrible! Worst I have experienced in a long time! Understand people being short staffed, everywhere is, but have been out to dinner all week in Port Douglas while on holidays & have found the service here to be terrible! Terrible that you won’t take a review if not over 50 words either? 🤷‍♀️

    Inexperienced staff bought us our sides before our main meals. The food was good but our eating experience was marred by not having hot chips and crunchy salad. Which is fine but we did point that out and complained but they still bought out more chips ahead of our main meals.

    We had a lovely dinner at Zinc. The table wasn't ready at our booked time, but we were shown to the bar and had a delicious cocktail beforehand. The outdoor/covered area was nicely lit and the garden looked lovely at night time with all the fairy lights. The food was amazing and came in a generous size. The staff were helpful with wine parings and service.
