About Zinc Bar and Grill
Zinc, essential to many things, including immune system support and sunburn prophylaxis. This latter is especially important if you’re down at Cronulla’s famous southern Sydney beaches and, if sunbaking and surfing tends to incubate a mighty thirst and hunger you’ve got Zinc Bar to turn to when you need a little help. Ideally located at the foot of Kingsway (off Gerrale Street and McDonald Street strictly speaking), between South Cronulla beach and the main strand, Zinc Bar is a one stop refreshment shop for lovers of sun and surf.

Open midweek from noon until late and all day over the weekend, Zinc Bar has you covered if you’re beachside in Sydney’s Cronulla. Zinc has a McDonald Street address proper, but it’s easier to simply head straight for the surf down Kingsway and find Zinc sitting pretty on the corner with Gerrale Street. You can’t miss it with its raised and shaded terrace area packed with patrons enjoying superlative bistro fare in a chilled and unpretentious setting. Afternoons are long here, so book a table and kick back with friends and family.
Zinc Bar is also a restaurant, equipped with a menu that is perfectly suited to its Cronulla beachside setting. Skip from the briny to Zinc and a plate of salt and pepper calamari or simple beer battered onion rings for post-swim satisfaction, or venture deeper with mouthwatering grills like Egyptian chicken or marinated beef skewers. If you’re with a group, go for Zinc’s share plates – classic Italian antipasti or the premium cheese board loaded with Tasman double brie and Viking blue vein among others. Our picks for the most compatible eats here are the Sydney rock oysters by the half or whole dozen, kept natural or jazzed up with Kilpatrick or Mornay sauces. Best bet’s to order up the platter and sample 4 of each.
Was fabulous! Had a great night with good food and drinks. The music was a good mix but may have been a tad loud as was having to yell quite loudly across the table for anyone to here. Definitely coming back
We enjoyed our dinning experience, the food was fantastic with and amazing view, The service was excellent. I recommend to go there any time Thank you
Went to Zinc Bar for Fathers day. Food is fantastic and service was excellent. There is something for everyone on the menu. Staff were very friendly. :)
three of us had a lovely breakfast. the service was efficient and friendly even though the restaurant, we had booked (always a good idea) and so had the best table with the best view below and of the beach. each of us was slightly annoying by asking for minor changes to set dishes but the waiter handled our requests politely. we will definitely go back.
Pros - Nice place. Cons - made a booking for 8pm. When we called to say we were running a bit late, we found out then that the kitchen would be closing at 8.30pm. We attended as a family to celebrate a birthday and unfortunately the attending waitress showed poor fundamental hospitality and interest in us being there. Zero engagement and explanation given it was our first time. She made us feel like we were imposing. The meat (other than the chicken) was tough and had to be cut up in small pieces in order to chew it in the wraps. Not enough avocado and tomato condiments to properly compliment the extent of meat and wraps. Should have also come with tsatziki. Given the great location of the venue and its nice settings, its disappointing that we can't rave about our experience and look forward to going back. Not recommended for the food and hospitality.
Sorry guys, waited way too long for the meal to come out. The food was good once it arrived and the staff friendly and apologetic. If you're serious about offering breakfast, a decaff coffee selection and some more menu options would be a good idea. I really like zinc but the competition springing up around cronulla is going to make things tough if this is the offer. Hope you find this feedback useful.
First time experience at Zinc Bar and Grill, Food was good and staff friendly, great views overlooking the park and beach, would go there again.
The atmosphere at zinc is very relaxed and the outside tables provide nice views of the water. The food was fantastic, we had a share seafood platter, and a mixed grill platter (from the specials) which were both fantastic. The service was very relaxed.
Nice atmosphere, but music just a bit to loud, hard to talk, and wrong music for the average age 40 year old patrons; music for young people. A nice little bar though, with a great feel.
Great venue/location & fantastic service! We had a wonderful afternoon, our reserved table was in the sun right up the front as requested! Look forward to the next time 😀
Zink bar had our table ready to go! Atmosphere was awesome and cocktails were delicious! A great place to catch up with friends! Thanks for a good night!
Excellent food service & location beautiful lunch would recommend the oyster platter & the barramundi & the chicken wings - all the meals we selected were delicious
Nice food, great location to sit back and enjoy life, staff are friendly and helpful. Great place to catch up with friends by the ocean.
Delicious and in a nice position - we had Fathers Day breakfast here and we're very happy with the service and meals. We hope to be back again soo
This place was buzzing with people and had a great atmosphere. We ordered the chicken and meat skewers that arrived with wraps, a bit of salsa and avocado. The food was delicious and the staff friendly.
Service was very good. Food was yummy and they make a great cocktail. It is a great lunch location for families over looking the park and ocean.
Great food and really funky vibe. Also has a really good location in Cronulla close to the beach. I can recommend the food here - well done.
Good service, good vibe and reasonably priced beers. Music was also very good just a bit too loud. All in all though we had a great time!
Excellent food and location - funky cool vibe. We have been there several time. Good selection of cocktails too. Share plates are really yummy :)
When making booking I requested a window seat. This wasn't forth coming and the girl admitted she hadn't seen the request. Other than that happy staff tasty breakfast.
We arrived on time and our reserved table was taken. We had to wait 30 minutes for the people at the table to move. Cocktails were terrible
Disappointing as far as food is concerned -- feel it is only a cocktail bar. The kebabs were overcooked and tough -- we could not eat them.
