Where the expats meet

Been going there for years. Always packed on a Thursday night and when there's a big sporting event. Cheap lunch menus.

I love this place and so does everyone I drag in there. Friendly, cheerful staff making sure you're happy with everything. All that Irish and international liquid stuff as well as a nice variety of superbly cooked pub food. Regular live bands, not only folk, also pop/rock etc.! :-) Crowded especially Fri/Sat, very nice mix of people from the world... More

Another plastic Paddy Irish pub. It is often extremely overcrowded as a result of having multiple televisions showing soccer and rugby. A drink even a soft drink is extremely expensive even by Zurich standards. I am not a great fan of "unauthentic" Irish pubs. Real Irish pubs cannot be copied as then people who make them real Irish pubs are... More

We had a beer on Saturday afternoon while checking out the Irish pubs prior to watching a football match on Sunday afternoon, and chose to return to this pub to watch the match and have lunch. We found the service excellent and we enjoyed the food we ate - caesar salad and chicken panang curry, followed by a sticky toffee... More

First of all I need to say that the service is great and the waitresses are very charming and most helpful. The place looks the part and the ambiance is what to expect from a Irish pub. I must say that I normally like Irish pubs but there is something rotten in the state of Paddy's, to be more specific,... More

It was very busy because of or inspite of a number of sporting events on large number of tvs . Everyone seemed in good spirits. Have to say barman who served us was very efficient and friendly .Could not... More

Nice atmosphere pleasant decoration, lots of nice people and quality food. However, unreasonably expensive, having the most hostile, unprofessional and rude waitresses I have ever seen in my entire life. It is such a pity to ruin an overall good set up by having so incompetent and miserable employees working in the service. Thanks a lot, I 'll pass next... More

We went here last night on the recommendation of a friend, to try it out. The place was packed with football fans, which is nice to know where you can catch your games in Zurich. The service is quick and attentive, despite it being very busy. Both people I encountered were like that. The food and menu were exactly what... More
