Excellent fantastic meal.

The waitress was wonderful and catered for all our needs. The food was the best we had in awhile. We ordered the Barramundi and was cooked to perfection. We also enjoyed the desserts. yum!

This was our best meal of our trip so far. Food amazing, great ambience and staff very attentive but not in your face. I would recommend the pork tenderloin or the beef fillet. Only in Port Douglas for four night and unfortunately it was shut for two of them but definitely going back tonight for our last night.

This place got rave reviews in my travel books, as well as from the locals. I was possibly there on an off night, but I thought the food was average at best and the place was almost empty (though it was off season).

Eat there often, this year even for the Melbourne Cup event, food is always superior and the staff helpful. One of the first restaurants you encounter when staying in the "golden triangle" of Port Douglas, do not bother to walk any further!

We only had a couple of pre-dinner drinks but the service was outstanding and the young bar attendant was so lovely we returned after our dinner for a night cap.

After looking around for a few restaurants we settled on Zinc. Service was prompt, dinner was very good. Price-wise, about what you would expect. Definitely worth a try.
