“Best duck I've ever had!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2014 via mobile

Great range of food with European and Asian influences, but if you like duck, you can't go past the Prosciutto wrapped duck! What doesn't taste better wrapped in bacon? My wife ordered a well done steak and it was perfect- well done but tender and perfect.
Even on a busy fully booked night they'll calmly accommodate you in the lounge for a lazy drink or two while you wait. Highly recommended.

“Fuss Free Dining”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2014

After dining at Zinc with friends earlier in the year, I was keen to return with my husband. Once again I was very impressed!

The restaurant was extremely busy (only 1 available reservation left) but this did not impact on the quality of food or service from staff. The timing for service of our main and dessert was spot on and the food certainly lived up to my expections.

This time I ordered the Grain Fed Beef Fillet (after having a case of menu envy last time I was there) and it was cooked to perfection! Deciding to choose a dessert rather than entree, I chose the lemon meringue and it was delicious. All of the meals were well presented and of a high standard which did not go unnoticed. Also I thought the pricing was very reasonable with the entire meal costing no more than $120.00.

In addition to this, our waiter was extremely polite and friendly from the minute we arrived. Once again the staff made me feel very valued as a customer and would definitely return again next time we are in Port Douglas.

“Good service, ordinary food for the price”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2014

Had dinner here recently and was very disappointed. Would highly recommend the twice cooked soufflé (one between two is enough) but mains were really poorly prepared. I had eye fillet which was quite dry and tasteless and husband had barramundi which was overcooked. It was an expensive night at $170 per couple (including tip) for a shared entree, 2 mains and drinks which consisted of a glass of sparkling each, one bottle of red $44 between 2 couples and one dessert wine. Don't mind paying if the food is worth it but that was not the case here.
