I can't believe some people did not like this place. Fine, it could be cheaper, but the food is nice, atmosphere is good and service is great. Every order at lunchtime comes with a free salad and a soda (1 liter!!!). Bread is also free. If you come after 1 pm, you also get free coffee. Prices are, on average,... More

Firstly, all the people complaining about the food quality - you are dumb! of course the food wont be top notch, it's designed to be a random selection and it is more a bar than a restaurant so deal with it! Yes it is pricey but it's Zurich! The place has a great vibe and atmosphere, every so many minutes... More

This is a lovely and very relaxed diner with a great atmosphere. The buffet style food includes eggs, pancakes and waffles along with eggs, potatoes, breads and local foods too. It's a very easy going environment with a nice social but not noisy feel about it. Definitely a great find.

All in the title. had the red curry and a quesadailla. Far from Thai and Mexican food. long tim I had such a bad quality for a 30.- plate. Atmosphere is fine tough. Maybe just ok to drink a glass but would not recommend it to eat.

It was big and loud but friendly staff and the food a lot of different things small and big and for Zurich fair price. Not a place for a nice diner but to have a quick meal perfect.

My guests had spare ribs which was ok! I had a salad which was really revolting! Ice cold chicken strips mixed with dried tomatoes ,garlic, splattered on a bed of lettuce (the rest was unrecognizable). The service was unprofessional, food overpriced!

I was at this restaurant with a friend to have a nice dinner and chatting. Definitively a bad choice. We had no reservation, but got a table in between two other tables. Veeery tight, we squeezed ourselves in. When one of the tables next to us got vacant, we wanted to move, but got rudely informed that the table was... More

I went there for brunch. There is one price and it is all you can eat. However, there are many nice options missing from the brunch. There were plenty of different things but I would characterize this a hotel breakfast rather than a brunch. The prize is far too high for what it is offered. I heard so many good... More

And the Oscar goes to... Movie Restaurant in Zurich. Service here is slow and unprofessional. The server seemed to be in a rush to get out of there, though, so as I was placing our order and wasn't even finished speaking, he interrupted me saying he knew what I wanted and stormed away. It took over 30 minutes to get... More

A wee overpriced but a peculiar location with its movies theme. Nice crowd in summer and decent hamburgers. All in all, every time it comes up to choose a place we en up passing this one. The food is not good enough to justify it, and the atmosphere quickly gets boring. The crowd shifts to the teenager some days, and... More
