“Make Sure to see the Washrooms”
Reviewed April 25, 2014

The Zinc is a great restaurant in the main shopping area of Port Douglas. It is in a nice location with lots of outdoor tables. We arrived in Port Douglas later in the evening and very much enjoyed both our 'after 9' dinner experience and the beautiful weather that Port Douglas offers. It is probably worth the visit just to see the washrooms which have an aquarium for a wall.

“The best in Port Douglas”
Reviewed April 25, 2014 via mobile

The service in Zinc is a great surprise for Port Douglas at the end of a week in other restaurants. Quick, pleasant and not pompous food comes without fuss. And every course we had was delicious, fresh and stunning.

Don't miss this restaurant as is the best in Port Douglas for quality, service and value

We ended up going here by accident but glad we did. The beef I had was great and my fiancée loved her duck! This was all for a reasonable price and we both agree that this was our best meal in port douglas!

“Best restaurant in port douglas - a must!”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

No booking but lucky to get a table as we got there early before six and started with the lounge bar for drinks with $10 cocktail drink. Best food in town and the floor staff was the most professional as well - gave a generous tip and I rarely do that. Music was the classics from the 60s to the 90s. The bathroom is a must - worth the visit and would be top five bathrooms I have ever been too! Also got fireworks across the road at seven - about ten minutes of fireworks. Best night in port douglas!
