If you're out for dinner with picky eaters or want to go somewhere that has anything from steak to nachos, Movies is great. They have an awesome drink menu as well... if you can imagine it, it's there. While advertising typically American cuisine, they have a variety of things. They have burgers, pasta, salads and lighter fare, as well as... More

We did not eat there but enjoyed a sunny evening. Not too busy but loud from the cars. Drink was cold, fast enough and almost friendly. Nothing to complain but also nothing to get excited.

the patty was clearly pre-manufactured, not the slightest bit touched by the chef, dry, lacked of taste, was more than medium cooked as we ordered, the bun was super thick and way too much and the lettuce was nothing close to crunchy, however the bacon we ordered as an extra was too much cooked and not enjoyable. The country fries... More

I was at Movies Restaurant for dinner yesterday with my girlfriend. Upon arrival, without reservation, we immediately got seated. That was a very positive first impression! We quickly were ask for drinks and got served soon after. Food wise we both shared our meals. We went for the Quesadilla Eldorado and the American Dream Burger. The Mexican food was great:... More

Stumbled onto this restaurant while looking for food. There is something for everyone. I had the chicken satay and hummus. Chicken was a little over cooked but still yummy. My friend had the alpine Mac and cheese and she loved it! Love the vibe and energy of the outdoor seating.

We went for brunch on a Sunday when there is a buffet. There was a big variety for every kind of taste. The sweets were excellent, much better than the rest food. Totally worth it for the price.

Recommend this place for drinks and some finger foods, especially when the weather is nice and you can sit outside. Otherwise, the food is barely average in taste for zurich standards. We had Quesadillas, Burgers and their Thai Dish, and everyone had the same opinion.

We popped in for a lunch and had the veal and Thai beef salad. Both were nice but not exceptional but we thoroughly enjoyed the interior and uniqueness of this restaurant. Not a must do but enjoyable all the same.

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
