Nice atmosphere, but very unfriendly staff

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... read 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

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.

I have been there with my friend for dinner but really it was disappointing and very expensive. It had no taste at all....

The restaurant has an overall pleasant, movie-themed atmosphere, and the food is quite good. The service was nice but a bit too present for my taste, cleaning the table after dinner before we had payed etc. The crowd is relatively young, and 4-5 times per night the lights were dimmed, either to play a birthday song for some other guest...

最近なくなってしまったABC映画館の隣に位置している。チューリッヒ中央駅とBahnhofstrasseの近くで便利。天気の良い時には外のテーブルに座ることができる。中は古い映画館的な雰囲気とは言うが薄暗くて良く見えない。来ている人々が実際良い雰囲気を醸し出しているは幸い。アメリカ風のメニューなのでスイスの名物は出て来ない。メニューの名前はハリウッドの名作映画なっていたりする。The African Queen (ホモスなど地中海風), Big blue ( 海老料理), Birds ( チキン), Mr. Bean's Holiday ( 枝豆!), Sophie's Choice (各種タパス )。アメリカ風のものは簡単だが結構おいしくてお腹がいっぱいになるのが嬉しい。それだけにここはディナー時は若い人々でいっぱいである。ここはまた日曜ブランチでも有名で、日曜の朝10時からアメリカンブレックファースト[ブランチ]が楽しめる。夕方会社の帰りにバーで軽く一杯も可能。中央駅は徒歩3分。ランチはPasta del GiornoがCHF 20.-, Beef Burger CHF 26.-とチューリッヒ値段で安くは無い。

We visited the Movie restaurant in Zurich whilst stopping over on our way to Italy. It was a very buzzing place, decked out with movie memorabilia. The menus were written on film cans, and meals named after films. Very good food and very good service.

I was there for lunch - the meal was more than enough with a burger, fries, and salad. Taste was very good, especially the fries. Service was ok, a bit slow in the beginning, but later good. You get much for your money in Swiss comparison.

The first impression we had was, that the staff seems to be unhappy. The served us the food by almost throwing the plate in front of us. I ve even asked one of them if they are very busy (restaurant was half full) and she answered "no"! The food is average, not bad, but not really something you keep in... More
