I am a solo traveller, and I was found a lovely table near the centre of things near the footpath. The food was really nice, and the service was attentive and helpful. I liked the formality of the white tablecloths.

Beautiful restaurant, and very popular. Food was great, but found service to be quite average for such an establishment. Skipped the desserts to pop next door to the ice cream bar!

A great evening with friends at an excellent restaurant. We have been frequently visit Zinc during the day to sample their amazing cocktail list which I have previously reveiwed. We decided to try it out for dinner at the recommendation of the cute New Zealand bartender :)

You have to try their different flavored Mojitos - they are to die for. I fell in love with the Mango and my gf was addicted to the Strawberry.

Food was excellent and superbly presented. The only down side was having to wait quite a while before being seated by a rather abrupt man who behaved like we were inconvenicing him. This was recitified immediately by Our awesome waiter (who just happened to be the cute bar tender from the day). He provided excellent service, great recommendations and put up with three girls getting quite tipsy and asking him stupid questions about fish in the aquarium.

Highly recommend the Chicken Supreme and Cajun Salmon. We finished the night off with liquid alcohol desserts from their amazing cocktail menu. Expresso Martini, Tobler and Calaway Port :)

Ate here once while staying in Port Douglas. Best to book in advance, this is a very popular restaurant, we didn't but it was not peak holiday time, (mid October).
The staff were very helpful and the kitchen was very happy to alter dishes to take account of one lactose intolerant customer.
The Mille-fuille of Coconut Coated Local Banana Prawns was very good.
Would go again.
Apparently, the loos have floor to ceiling fish tanks but we never got to see them!

One of the best restaurants in Port. Location is perfect and the tapas/bar area is great for relaxing. The staff treat you like guests, unlike other places in town and the food is always fabulous. Can't rate high enough - worth every cent!
