Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars

This hidden gem of a restaurant takes its name from the cinema opposite, and it’s where the film buffs descend after screenings to discuss whatever arthouse flick they’ve just seen. Their heated debates, mingled with the classic rock constantly playing on the stereo, evoke the charged student culture of the late sixties (though it may deter those looking for a quiet drink). Old-school Hollywood and Kurosawa film posters only add to the atmosphere. The food is cheap and the staff are cheerful – for €10, you’ll get a salad served with a smile. Croque monsieurs (€8) and steak (€12) are also on offer. Get a table by the window, and you may end up deep in conversation with a smoker or a cinemagoer outside.
