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.

It is a very nice place. It us built as a film studio. You feel as toy are taking place in a film. The place is in the middle of the town. the food is good and children enjoy the place.

Didn't make a reservation so couldn't get a la carte menu. Pretty pricey 41ch for brunch but had a great selection. Anything you can think of for breakfast buffet including crepes and waffles and even omelette made to order. They even had slider hamburgers👍 juices and espresso. Service was friendly and prompt.

Our penalty for not having checked trip advisor in advance. 3 out of 5 stars would have sent us elsewhere. We only ate half of our meal, but the manager cleverly convinced us that if we ate so much, it was our fault for not finishing. Naturally, if yelled for the manager after the first bite, we would've vacated the... More

Very nice, centrally located place with good food and good service. I met a friend for brunch. It was easy to find something without fish, shellfish, gluten and lactose. Will go again.

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
