The place has tasty drinks, pricy because alcohol in Ecuador is expensive. The appetizers are great for sharing. If you have a Diners Club, it's a great place to dine on Wednesdays because it's 50% off.

It´s an OK place to have a drink with friends. Prices are on the high side. Better make a reservation if you don´t want to wait.

Zinc has the best drinks in town, well prepared and the bar tenders know very well how to prepare your favorite drink ! I ordered a "Negroni" my favorite Italian drink ! Good job zinc ! If you plan to go there, eat before, the food is not good at all. Cheers

Although we were told the wrong time to get there when we made reservations (they start serving at 10:30 AM on Sundays), the staff really tried to make up for the misunderstanding with great service. The food was tasty and the portions were small enough so you could try at least 3 of the options (it's one price for all... More

Fabulous cocktails which is what they are known for. Food was even better!! Best veggie burger I've had in South America and outside of Tallin, Estonia. Great service topped it off!! Will definitely be back since its walking distance from home! Well done Zinc

The atmosphere is young and fun, and chock full of booze. The food, just what you´d expect from a bar ( not the main attraction). Sliders are ok if you must eat something.

Love this place! The food is truly delicious - the hongos silvestres flatbread, pulpo, ceviche and filling salads are all top rate. By far the coolest atmosphere of any restaurant in Quito - it has excellent lighting, dark wood, semi-open kitchen, fireplace, large bar, and zero feel of pretension or stuffiness. The staff couldn't be kinder and more attentive. It's... More

I went there for a drink with a couple of friends. The place has a nice environment, nice decoration and good service. The gin and tonic as well as the micheladas are good. Good option to have a drink in Quito.

Nice place. They have different environments (lounge and restaurant), both same comfortable. Good food, but not as good as you expect for the price (specially the hamburger). Sliders (those little hamburguers) were really tasty. Drinks were really good. Service was also very good, kind and alert. Not so easy to park close from the place, but there is a vallet... More
