We were walk-ins at about 6:30/7 pm on a Sunday night. We were told we could be accommodated at a table outside. We were given the table tucked away in the darkest corner by lots of foliage, then ignored for a while....our waitress was friendly but it took a long time to get drinks and even have our orders taken....

I’ll get straight to the point, we absolutely loved this place! The service was fantastic; they knew every dish on the menu inside out, were friendly & they really looked after us (no mean feat when feeding Vegetarian Girl & Nut Allergy Boy). Front of house wasn’t the only success though, the food was great too; would very much recommend... More

Dinner at Zinc was a very good experience. Service was attentive and friendly from the start to finish. For entree we shared the crusted Tuna with pesto and a delicious savoury pannacotta. My main of salmon with a blini, roast tomatoes and broccolini was cooked medium rare. Delicious in a butter sauce. The spaghetti with prawns was a winner, cooked... More

I loved my dinner at Zinc. I had the fresh fish with chips. Fish was cooked perfectly and not too oily. Chips were delicious. Best part of the meal was my dessert - the cookies and cream cheesecake. Absolutely delicious. The service was outstanding and really made the night memorable. Would definitely recommend. For the quality of the service and... More

We really loved the food at this restaurant. It's not cheap, but it's creatively prepared and delicious. At times the service was a little slow. If you eat here, make sure to go to the bathroom. You'll see why.

I came to Zinc for my best friend's wedding last year and we had an absolute blast. The venue was fantastic, service was awesome and food was really nice. I would definately reccommend booking this place for an event as the staff really go above and beyond.

Staff were really nice and food was really delicious (if a bit on the posh side). Cocktail menu was extensive and expensive but very tasty on a hot night

We recently celebrated my Father's 70th birthday here. The food and the service were sensational. We were a little worried by the exotic sounding menu as we had some inexperienced palates in the party but there was something for everyone. The fillet steak was out of this world. The service was brilliant with the waitress constantly attentive but never intrusive.... More
