“Group dinner”
Reviewed August 23, 2014 via mobile

Had a great dinner here for 13 people. After initial problem with booking -was booked for 2 instead of 13, the hed waiter went out of his way to accomatde us all, setting up a table in the outside area. Our waitress was very friendly and didn’t hesitate to take numerous photos for us all. The menu was extensivd and cateed for all tastes, a good selection of gluten free and vegetrian also. All our meals came out in a timely manner without any problems with the late influx of a large crowd. We all thoroughly enjoyed our meals and the atmosphere of the restaurant is great.

“Very nice atmosphere, service and food”
Reviewed August 22, 2014

Had dinner at a corner table near the street - beautiful evening, fun to people watch. Excellent service and white tablecloths made this restaurant feel "fancier" than others in town. I had a VERY yummy baramundi with veggies and husband enjoyed his kangaroo and salad. Walkable to hotels, looks warm and inviting as you walk by, not inexpensive, but this is not a burger at Dave's.

We were last at Zinc 3 years ago. Went back tonight and everything was well done. Service friendly, informative and timely. Menu intetesting and varied. Cocktails before the meal as we arrived early. We were given a perfect table for two. Well run and highly recommended.

“Very disappointed this visit”
Reviewed August 16, 2014

We always make Zinc our first port of call when in Port Douglas, with wonderful stunning memories of gorgeous food, and have recommended this place to all our friends who plan to visit P.D. This time, we were eager to repeat the same wonderful food experience and were dismayed to see it had almost turned into a child's crèche. There were five assorted strollers/pushchairs full of tired kids who should have been in bed, whingeing. We decided to not dine there as it was like a Zoo. Just had an expensive glass of wine in their bar - it was hard to find a place to sit. One considerate Mum and Dad, complete with stroller and crying kid took over six seats, with their feet up on the nice chairs, and the noise was so loud, we didn't even bother to ask them to move their crusty bare feet. Yuk. Sorry Zinc - we normally love you.
