Really recommend Zinc Restaurant. Best barramundi in Port Douglas. Great service and drinks. Do yourself a favour and don't miss out on eating here. And check out the great fish tank on the way to the toilets.

Was advised to go here for early dinner as kids eat for free between 5-6pm as long as adults also buys dinner. Seems fair enough. Except didn't see the fine print as you had to be seated by 5.30pm and we had arrived just after that by minutes. Felt dooped

Open air restaurant with good food. Wait staff was very service oriented. We were told we needed to visit the rest rooms - large aquarium with coral reef and fish.
