“Most Amazing Spaghetti & Steak”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

My partner and I recently stayed in Port Douglas and dined at Zinc on two occasions. The spaghetti was amazing- the best I have ever tasted- and the steak was delicious. Service is friendly and efficient and there is a great selection of food and beverages on the menu. Plus- the huge fish tank in the bathrooms is worth a look!

“Good fun and lovely food”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

We had a fun evening at Zinc and really enjoyed the high-quality food and good service. The staff were very friendly, attentive and great with the kids. One of the boys said that our waitress was his favourite in Australia. We sat at a table in the covered area outside, which did get a bit chilly towards the end of the meal. Otherwise, a great place to spend an evening in Port Douglas.

“One of the best”
Reviewed September 23, 2013 via mobile

Zinc is one of those restaurants where you will be looked after and the food will be great. Wide range of beverages and it caters for kids as well. Not too crampy with an outside area to dine as well.

“Great Food and Great Service”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

We didn't have reservations to eat here so we were surprised that they sat us right away. We had planned to barbecue at our vacation rental the night we ate here, but the grocery store closes VERY early on Saturday. Anyway, we were happy that they could sit us. The meal was terrific. It was our first time trying kangaroo (in a salad) and we were surprised how good it was. I figured it was going to be very gamey, but it wasn't at all. Very tasty.

The service was also great. Take a look at the aquarium on the way to the bathroom. Great meal.
