Nothing special despite cool concept

We had lunch here, outside in the sunshine. The waiter took a long time to bring us the menus and even longer to take our orders. My friend wanted to order a salad but without the chillis in it.... oh gosh, no, impossible! That would be requiring some flexibility, wouldn't it. As it happened that... read more

This is a restaurant near the main station and can be reached by public transport very easily. It is the place I usually meet friends for lunch. They have a very simple menue card - they always offer a small starter - either a soup or a salad to start with. The menue (with starter) includes a large bottle of... More

First of all not a very welcoming lady at the front but maybe she was too busy to put on a smile, seated on a table with 3 other people without even asking if okay.... The waiter who served us for the rest of the evening was good, really gave his best, fast , smiling and correct service the way... More

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

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.

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
