We had a great experience having dinner on Movies. The place is really cool with a cool decoration, and the menu is huge so it is really weird that you don't find something for you. It would be great if they had more types of alcohol free beverages.

Stopped for dinner during a business trip - one of the few places that wasn't packed on Valentine;s Day. Server was good - brought the menus, drinks, and food in a timely manner. The atmosphere is hip and cool - the food is average at best. Interesting menu, a little bit of everything. The appetizer was small for $26 (sampler)... More

The place was a movie before, and the decoration is reflecting that, it looks really cool and hip especially for a swiss place. Its in a great location in the summer time you can sit outside on the small square, and its always FILLED around lunch time, so reserve a table. I've been visiting this restaurant over 5x for business... More

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
