A neighborhood grocery-store/deli kind of place trying to do fine-dining and pretending to be avant-garde stylish. No it just doesn't work that way. Cutting your polenta side dish with a cookie cutter and having only three sets of surprise menu without actual menus does not make you a refined establishment. The kitchen and the staff are just not made for that kind of dining experiences. The failed attempt results in something that is laughably pretentious and by no means enjoyable for the diners.

A place where you can fill at home. Compared to others restaurant in Rotterdam the prices are very fair and I was surprised by the quality of the dishes. Wine very good at cheaper prices than other restaurant.

Had dinner here last night, with a group of friends.

The food is good, and well prepared. You can choose from the daily menu: multiple dishes (3 or 4) with meat/fish/vega.

The traditional mashed patatoe with the main course is really tasty!!

The service is friendly.

...but worth a visit. Small menu (3 starters, 4 main, always a vegetarion option), seasonal, well prepared and very tasty. Wine was excellent. Very kind hosts (we didnt have a reservation) and quick and friendly service. Will come back next time in rotterdam.

Last time I was in Zinc was more than 20 years ago when I lived in Rotterdam. My wife and I have moved back to Holland after many years in Belgium and France and we decided to see if it was the "same"....in those days you didn't even get offered a choice...you were asked a simple question...meat or fish...? Last night we had a few choices for starter and main course....the food was great, well cooked and very tasty. Accompanying wines were good, nothing special, but accompanied the courses well.
Well worth a visit.":-))
