Movies is a very casual restaurant and bar. Staff are all quite young and keen to please. Good food and reasonably priced drinks for Zurich. A good casual dining option.

We stopped here by coincidence on a shopping trip in Zurich and were pleasantly surprised. Everything inside is in the theme of the name of the restaurant. The menus are on those old film cases, so you have to turn them to read the menu. The place settings are also of movies, the dishes are called after movies, well I... More

For Zurich it reasonably priced 25chf for burger meal - small salad (or orange juice) plus decent size burger with zucchini on top plus good fries. Although we asked medium rare we got it well done. All burgers in Switzerland are different then in USA or England - meat is dense and hard. Not sure why. Less tasty then in... More

Movie is located 2 min walk from Zürich main station (HB). They serve great brunch! Lunch and dinner! The Burger is tasty and they have a nice kids Menü. Staff is really friendly and if you're lucky you'll get to enjoy a sunny day by sitting outside.

Clearly for the very young clientele judging by our fellow diners one crowded recent evening visit. The texmex food was rather dry and unoriginal in flavour and presentation. And it was expensive for what we got. It needs a makeover, especially the aging all black Hollywood of the 50's decor, all big cameras on tripods and menus on old film... More

During lunch weekdays quite busy with locals taking advantage of relative cheap. Menu is different and limited choice at lunch We had for 25 francs the meze burger - basically burger with fries and two very tiny thimble size bowl of hummus and aubergine. Starter a salad was included not bad with mustardy sauce Burger beef is as always much... More

I have never seen such an unpolite waitress! After ordering a beer she looked at me pissed and walked away without replying. Not acceptable also that no english is spoken. Worst experience in Zurich!
