I stopped by without a reservation or knowledge of the restaurant and was pleasantly surprised by the friendly, helpful staff, the quality of the food was excellent and the modern twists on traditional cocktails.
I would recommend this restaurant as a place to go to anyone who likes good food and service.

We didn't get past the starters. The selection of dishes was so mouthwatering that we both decided to have 2 starters. The scallops with squid ink are delicious, the tastes of the sea comprises 4 separate dishes prepared in different ways, which my wife raved about, and the pork belly was sublime and just left me wanting more. This chef has that great skill of being able to harmonise tastes and flavours seemingly without effort. He's definitely a keeper. We'll move on to the rest of the menu on our next visit.

Zinc is located in a great spot in beautiful Port Douglas. However, the food is average and overpriced. My friend and I were there recently and both ordered the steak - the steak was cold and incredibly fatty. The waiting staff are rushed off their feet - having to greet and seat guests while trying to take their orders. Very disappointing experience and wouldn't return or recommend.

while the dining atmosphere is good, food is not matching up, but it was making up by the service, it is ok overall
