Good penne

Service was a little slow, but my pasta and Pinot Grigio was excellent. Gimmick of movies does not quite work for me. Maybe better for a drink.

Found Movies tucked away a couple of blocks from the main railway station. Sat outside under the trees and enjoyed a tapas style meal. Very popular with the younger crowd.

Went for just an ice cream on their (very nice!) terrace. It took half an hour before they allowed me to order and another one to get my 2 scoops of ice cream - of which one was half melted already. Not on my list to return to any time soon...

Restaurants in Zurich are exorbitantly priced. We stumbled upon Movies and it looked interesting and wasn't as expensive as others we had seen. We chose to eat inside to enjoy the unique movie theme. The menu is given to you (in English if needed) on a movie reel box. We both ordered the steak fajitas and they were excellent. The... More

A friend of mine booked a table for the Movies. I went there with mixed feelings, because I remembered the bad service from when I had been there a couple of years ago. Nonetheless, I was looking forward to some tasty american-style dinner. Service was fast, but the waiter tried to be funny, while he actually was annoying. He constantly... More

I want there twice and both time, the atmosphere was very nice, To be there to have a drink is nice. But, what surprised me the most is the unfriendliness of the waitress, both times. It looked like she didn't want to be there, not even a smile, talking to us with arrogance... Really, you don't except that kind a... More

The poulet satay salad with cucumbers is really good. The place is nice and cosy. The decoration like in an old movie theater is cool. But OMG our waitress was the unfriendliest person in the world, i am still in shock (this is why I write this review). She didnot care at all about her job and was not talking... More

From entrance to exit. Rude, unhelpful staff. Unhappy customers tipped the balance for us and we left before eating.
