    Beautiful 5 course tasting menu with matched wines. It was exquisitely presented, tasty, used good produce, was quirky and well balanced across the whole meal. Staff were efficient and friendly. They didn’t hurry our meal and made sure the pace was good for us. The atmosphere was very special with lovely fairy lights over the awning. Great location.

    We ordered fish and it was undercooked. All we received was a "the chef apologizes." This was after having to wait for 20m to be seated, as they "had to pace" the kitchen....

    Zinc is our favourite restaurant in Port Douglas on our current holiday we’ve tried a few. We had a table in the outdoor area and were lucky enough to have beautiful weather on the night. The service was faultless, the meals sublime and the cocktails yummy. Would highly recommend Zinc for great quality food served in a very tranquil setting.

    Managed the difficult task of actually getting a table, which was reserved at 8.30 pm. By then the restaurant wasn't particularly busy, so I was surprised to be seated on the edge of the pavement, when there seemed to be better choices available. Anyway, we were just glad to get a table and the food and service were both excellent. Would happily return, assuming we could get a table second time around.

    Overall dining experience good. Service was very relaxed and staff not very engaging including the manager and staff at entrance, no farewell or acknowledgement on how dinner was. Guest beside us had issues with her $48 steak and staff did not handle that situation well, staff need to be more attentive, head chef in kitchen kept coughing throughout our meal right over the food preparation area. Person who delivered the meal was different to the staff member who took out order had no idea what we had ordered and initially took it to the wrong table. Every hospitality venue in Australia is under pressure staff wise but when paying these prices you have an expectation of engaging and attentive service which lacked from Zinc, the dining experience was very transactional. It is for this reason I would recommend Salsa and Wrasse & Roe where the staff are much more engaging, attentive and appreciate your business.

    Our second dinner at Zinc, once again exceeded our expectations . The menu is quite small but our salmon sashimi was beautifully presented and delicious as was our Barramundi surrounded by a very tasty sauce and papaya salad. The staff are extremely well trained and know not to remove our plates before all diners have been served! A welcome relief. It was a most enjoyable dining experience set outside in the wonderful balmy evening.

    We dined at Zinc tonight and my God are we glad we booked a table at Zinc, the service to start was exceptional and then the food. Well OMG, the food was spectacular, we had half a dozen oysters and the salmon sashimi for entree and then the barramundi and beef cheek for mains. All dishes were exceptional and I would go back here in a heartbeat, could not recommend this place more, do yourself a favour and make a booking to experience for yourself.

    Well - it was a 21st celebration - the menu was limited!! ( no coral trout ) the prawns were watery (under cooked) 2 main gnocchi dishes were nice BUT one serve came out 1/2 the size of another serve!!!!!! They automatically took a tip without our knowledge for less than average serve!! Won't ever return.... save your money we spent 700.00!!!

    We had a cob with oil and dukkah for a starter - way too much salt! Had to change for butter. Entrees halloumi and pork tenderloin - quite nice. Mains beef cheek and barramundi - again way too much salt. Have sent an email to the chef expressing our disappointment - hoping to receive a reply!!!

    Service excellent & not rushed. Meals arrived promptly after ordering. Ambience relaxing with an air of sophistication and no bright lights. The food well presented. My husband had steak with a smear of mustard on the plate. A choice of mustard either mild or hot may be considered in future. My barramundi with curry sauce was fresh & delicious although the curry a little overpowered the barramundi flavour. Call me old fashioned but always have and use a spoon & fork for desserts. We were only given a spoon so asked for a fork. Thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Zinc & have been before pre Covid. Would recommend highly thank you 😊

    My husband and I had a very enjoyable evening meal at Zinc the night before we returned to Melbourne. The evening was warm and so was the attention from the staff. The food was lovely. My husband enjoyed the sea-food linguini and I experienced the degustation courses. A good wine topped it off.

    The trout (fish of the day) was rubbery. The beef cheek was tasteless. The Cobb (a Caesar pursuit) was cheap. The waitstaff/host were entirely inexperienced. And yet, Michelin prices.
