Our organization recently celebrated it's 8th anniversary at Zinc. 135 people attended. The food,service,and drinks were excellent. The ambience of Zinc reminds me of being in South Beach, Miami brought to Quito. Great choice for a celebration.

Zinc Gastro Bar has Brunch on Sundays in which there is a buffet with endless sushi, spring rolls, ceviche, nachos, salad, crepes, omelettes, breads, pastries, and jugos! And you can also order anything off their breakfast and lunch menu for the fixed price of $30. I recommend the french toast and the sliders! It is pricey, but worth the awesome... More

This place is nice if you're out to have drinks. Is not a place to eat actually. The appetizers are ok but don't except to have nice diner experience. Again, this place is excellent to hang out with your friends or when you're dating someone and want to have some drinks before or after having dinner in a real restaurant.

Nice food, nice vibe and they open until late at night! Good for hanging out and have a drink after office. A bit pricey though!

We came here basically because we're saw the really good reviews at trip advisor and had really high expectations. Nevertheless, we were disappointed with the food specially with the service. First of all I would like to mention that, even though the fish and burger were good, the sauces were quite buttery and heavy. We wanted to try the sea... More

We were only in Quito for one night but after realizing Calle La Ronda just wasn't our atmosphere, we took a quick can ride over to Zinc Gastro Bar. Walking into this beautiful new bar we immediately felt underdressed in shorts and shirts, but were assured we were just fine. As the night went on we saw that the rest... More

Supposedly great burger but no. Asked for medium well done, but was served raw. Asked to have them cooked more and they brought them a bit more cooked not enough though. Felt ill a few hours after and today the same (this was yesterday). Too expensive for what it was.

Went on a recommendation from a friend. Great place. Really liked the atmosphere -- very swank, but friendly and approachable. I was there in a tshirt and jeans and they treated me as well as everyone else. Had a salmon salad that was perfectly prepared, and the service was excellent. Only surprise was that drinks are as expensive as many... More

Try their lamb sliders. Yummy! Even though they change their menu from time to time, their classics are always available. Taquitos de ropa vieja are great with a cold beer!
