Really great service from the wait staff even though they were operating on skeleton staff. The food was great from the entrees to desserts, great choice of vegetarian and vegan options and a large drinks menu. The bathrooms have a massive aquarium which is a lovely touch! The place is quiet as it is open and quite large. Would definitely go here again and recommend others to do so too.

Best beef bourguignon of my life. Wish I would have gotten a chance to dine a second time in our trip, but just not possible due to Covid closures. Do yourself a favour- dine here when in PD.

Dinner for two, Thursday night, initially noisy with a few families in, but quietened down as they left. Great ambiance, promptly seated, menu & availability explained, entree & mains arrived within expected time, food was excellent, waiters likewise, price ok. Would happily return again.

Lovely restaurant inside away from the hustle of other places.

We both had the seafood linguine as a main at $40 each. For that price you'd expect more than 3 prawns each.

Based on that unfortunately we have mark it down as value for money.

We had saved this restaurant for our last night in Port Douglas as a special dinner to end the holiday. Unfortunately, we walked away so disappointed with the experience. The service was not to the standard that you would expect from a restaurant of this kind. The food was okay but nothing spectacular. My husband had the eye fillet and that was by far the best dish that came across the table. I had the tuna special and it was quite flavourless. We had really been looking forward to enjoying some beautiful seafood, however by the time of our 8pm booking they had run out of a lot of options. Overall, we really wanted to love this place-we had high hopes and our experience was average.

The service is too rushed and not relaxed. Food was average. Too many sauces overpowered the food. Could be so much better.

We dined at Zinc with family while on holiday in Port Douglas. The service was excellent - they were very accommodating of our group, and helpful with the menu. The food was very good - varied and of a high standard. One of the best restaurants in Port Douglas.

Pretty ordinary options on the menu; food was ok. Swordfish cooked on the pork grill and so tasted like pork; lamb gnocchi was a bit oily.
