A group of 12 of us arrived late and the restaurant accommodated us easily. The food was tasty, well cooked with a local flare. I liked how a pot of mash potato that came around after the plate of food was delivered and a plop of mash popped onto the plate.

Eating at Zinc feels a bit like having dinner at a friend's house, if your friend was a superb cook with a great deal of wine. Lovely staff, very good value and the best vegetarian food I've ever eaten.

Cosy atmosphere. Good food. No fixed menu, just what they happened to buy that day. And that was good!

A real breath of fresh air! Friendly staff, great food and never gets boring. Time flies in this restaurant. You will go out and be shocked that you have spent 3 hours in it.

After arriving late due to flight problems, the staff were very accommodating and still prepared us a wonderful meal even though the chef was finished for the night! Staff were extremely friendly and the food was delicious. I would highly recommend!

Zinc has been around for quite a while, and has had the honor of watching the rest of the world catch up with the philosophy of sourcing super-fresh local ingredients , with an ecclectic and constantly changing menu. The restaurant is on its second generation of ownership -- we remember both the father and the son's cooking, and this is... More

Sadly, they so not take credit cards so we had to go for a little adventure to find a at machine but they... More

Being a local I should have been here long ago! I heard a lot of nice things of this place from my acquaintances. It is my turn to tell about the place... We reserved in advance to avoid any disappointment. It is situated in Veerhaven, which is one of the posh locales of Rotterdam. We were there at 6pm, a... More

We've been to Zinc four or five times now and never been disappointed. Food is French style with an innovative twist and the menu changes daily depending on fresh seasonal local produce. Last week I had a starter of gazpacho with scallops, a main of sole with white asparagus and a dessert of rhubarb tarte tatin but the food is... More

We'd never been to this part of the city before. It was one of the few areas untouched by any bombs, so is steeped in history with beautiful architecture and next to the water. It was unfortunate that the restaurant didn't have our reservation (as it was our anniversary) but fortunately we were early enough and so they were still... More
