The good:

Spacious, upscale. Very diverse menu. They were accommodating to our food allergies.

We ordered drinks with our waitress. They were delivered before she had left the table! High-tech.

The waitress was extremely knowledgable about the menu. The food was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. The portions were just right!

The less good:

The only complaint was the amount of time it took to get the final bill. It was not that big of a deal. The waitress was busy with some other diners, but we were obviously ready to go.

The final word:

We would go back again in a heartbeat!

I never eat out much due to the cost of it and Zinc is no exception with lots of high prices. I had spaghetti something which had mince and tomato sauce and it was very nice but at $25 very pricey considering it didn't fill me up. My friend had the steak which was $35 and he wasn't overly impressed with it for what he paid. Overall I would say go there if you're not short on money.

Thank you for your review ETJ9914, always good to hear from locals. Our pricing and feedback on pricing is very important to us so thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts. We feel that we are very competitive with other similar restaurants, not just in Port Douglas. Unfortunately with increasing pressure from the cost of fresh local produce, wages, electricity etc., restaurants need to charge what they do to stay in business. Having said that, we are continually looking at ways to keep costs down so as to not have to raise our menu prices. We hope that you can visit Zinc again sometime. Thanks again.

I loved the candle light lighting, nice music, and surprising fish tank in the bathrooms. The menu (food/drink) options were delightful. It is medium-high priced but the quality of food and service is well worth it.

This place was recommended to us by our hotel staff. The wait service was prompt and the food was fantastic. We wished we had more time to come back and eat here during our stay. We didnt have a booking but they accommodated us and we even got a table outside
big tick from us.

A lovely meal in cool surroundings with outstanding service. Nothing too much trouble. Duck was tasty and not greasy whilst the pork was just right. Was going to order two starters but the waitress said one to share would be ample - she was right!
