Went here because of the reviews on Tripadvisor and because it looked like a decent place on the otherwise quite unappealing main street in Saint Gilles, and was very disappointed. The service was good and attentive, but the food was just insipid. The chicken curry I had was blander than a porridge and the chicken in it was the toughest,... More

This is glowingly reviewed in Lonely Planet (one of four restaurants in the WHOLE of the island that they highlight as where to eat) so we had high hopes! It definitely didn't disappoint. As some other reviewers have mentioned, it is a little dark inside but that makes it atmospheric and quite private. It's got a lovely fish tank in... More

Everytime I am in this part of the world, I never fail to visit. Recently under new management I found the quality of the service and the food have not changed one bit. A little bit on the sombre side but definitely atmospheric.

Only on the island for a week, but visited this restaurant twice. The service couldn't have been better. As we don't speak French, it was not always easy to make ourselves understood, the waitress was very patient and helpful. Highly recommend the spicy black pudding and chicken curry. Give it a try, you might be surprised.

This is a lovely restaurant with a nice atmosphere and friendly, helpful and efficient staff. The food was very tasty and we had one of the best meals of our stay here at P’tit Zinc. We had the “carri d’espadon” (swordfish carri) and the trio of “carris”, which were very, very flavoursome and came with rice, lentils, Chinese greens and... More
