Nice patio, average food

I have come here a couple of times for lunch. The lunch deal is not bad a it includes a salad and free soda. The food is nothing special, but the outside seating is nice and the restaurant is conveniently located next to HB.

After a few visits I can say I have never had a bad meal and always good service. Even if the place is busy on the weekends, you are served in a proper manner and get your food quickly. If you are planning on going on a Saturday, you might consider putting in a reservation, since it will be packed.... More

Husband and I came here for dinner on a Saturday without a booking and surprisingly they had a seat for us. We had to share a table but that wasn't so bad. The place had nice ambience and lighting. The theme of the restaurant "movies" is a bit overrated. Didn't really have much to do with the restaurant other than... More

Ordered Pasta of the day for reasonable price of chf 19.50. Good size portion including salad and some drinks e.g. Water or Ice tea Salad had lots of dressing but nice compact portion Interesting interior focusing on the film industry Nice lunch location but for sure also for diner. Nearby cinemas

We found this place while strolling from the Zurich rail station back to our hotel. Set up inside like a old movie theater with plenty of TVs showing old clips from the 1930's to date. The place is bit crowded with an almost American Diner style menu. The actual menus are on the outside of old movie reel metal containers.... More

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 particular salad "The devil wears... 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

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.
