Nice Guinness in downtown Zurich

Chose Paddys as it was the nearest bar to the tram stop and there was a thunderstorm deluging the streets. Bar was spacious and staff friednly, although I felt service was a little slow. My Guinness was very good though! Saw plates of foods being delivered to tables and helpings looked large. Might... read more

Can you take care of that - I want to go home! -- that's the attitude we got from our server this evening. Absolutely disappointed by an otherwise decent place.

The best burgers in town! A wonderful Irish pub with very nice staff and for an affordable price (don't forget, you are in Zurich!) Thank's a lot to the French waiter (Sorry I didn't catch your name) but he's very professionnal and it's a pleasure to meet such passionnate person.

If you like pseudo Irish pubs especially made for foreign lands then maybe this is the place for you. I don't like it. It is not authentic and it is extremely expensive. It has been extended a lot from it's original size. I am not a great fan of pubs, cafes or bars which are not the original. For me... More

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

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

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
