Visited the Juan Costa for a quick bite and drink. We really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and very friendly and quick service. Prices were moderate for Zurich and a diverse selection of tapas allowed choices. Probably a good place to come back with friends and have a good time talking.

Went here with a colleague. Good tapas and decent red wine. Maybe we were there late, but it was a quiet atmosphere and a bit sedate. Good hot and cold tapas. Worth another visit.

Juan Costa has a pub style atmosphere, which is relaxed and enjoyable. There were three of us and we had a good night together and were not bothered by too much noise or crowds of people - the place was busy, but not overly full on a Wednesday night. The amber beer was enjoyable and my wife enjoyed her white... More

As the name says it's a place for spanish food. Unfortunately in a daily manu which i chosen was vegetable lasagne so I can't tell if the spanish food there is good :) But i liked the lasagne! Place looks a bit old-stylish, more like british pub. The service is nice and friendly.

Interesting mix of styles. From the outside, the sign The Old Inn resembles an American style pub yet it is also called Juan Costa tapas bar. Inside, dark wood alcoves and English pub style tables with posters of Spanish cities! Very friendly and helpful staff. A menu of special dishes and another menu of Tapas brought on a clipboard with... More

A lovely restaurant next to B2 boutique hotel and Google office. Great sangria and great staff. Sea bass was cooked perfectly and my steak was perfect. Open late until 23:00.

I was in this restaurant in December with a group of colleagues. The overall bill was quite substantial (around 900chf) but we were 14 people so perfectly in line with Zurich prices. What made me really angry is that, after the main bill was paid, we asked for a liter of water. They brought it to us in a open... More

i am really not sure what some of the other reviewers ordered, I think the tapas here are very good. The pimientos del padron, the pickled sardines, and the patatas bravas are particularly good. I also appreciate the good service and pint sized beers. This place is well worth a visit.

Probably the worst tapas bar I have seen in a long time. The place itself is comfortable and the service is friendly and efficient, but the food...ohhh, not even close to what it should be. We were a group of 8 and ordered several things to share: pulpo a la gallega (not even similar to the way is normally prepared,... More
