“Elegant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2014

I loved my dinner at Zinc.
I had the fresh fish with chips. Fish was cooked perfectly and not too oily. Chips were delicious. Best part of the meal was my dessert - the cookies and cream cheesecake. Absolutely delicious.
The service was outstanding and really made the night memorable. Would definitely recommend. For the quality of the service and food I thought it was very good value.
Thanks Zinc - I will be back!

“Great meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2014

We really loved the food at this restaurant. It's not cheap, but it's creatively prepared and delicious. At times the service was a little slow. If you eat here, make sure to go to the bathroom. You'll see why.

“Great cocktails”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2014 via mobile

Staff were really nice and food was really delicious (if a bit on the posh side). Cocktail menu was extensive and expensive but very tasty on a hot night
