Found this by chance

We were walking past Manora this morning and looked inside, so on our way back to our hotel later in the day, we stopped and had some food. What an amazing place! All sorts of food, cakes, breads, fruit, smoothies,coffees,fish cooked whilst you wait, soups, salads, ice cream, wine - you name it... read more

Last time I visited Lugano 12 yrs back. I hardly found that time any german/english speking person. The lady at the cash spoke to me in german without question, even she gave me some information about bus service. So, these are very good. But the prices are quite high. Even in compare with zurich. I have been living in zurich... More

Buffet-style restaurant attached to the Manor department store, with an excellent and varied selection of salads, hot freshly-prepared meals, vegetables, desserts, hot and cold drinks. You can make up a salad of your choice from the selection or choose from their prepared ones - and the same goes for hot meals, vegetables and desserts. Delicious fruit salad selection. Good choice... More

Revisited Lugano for the 3rd time, last on 1st May 2015. Unfortunately all shops were closed being a Public Holiday, so after the boat trip I headed for Ristorante Manora as i knew it was going to stay open. I opted for seafood mix, some salad and a glass of Rose` Doc wine. Very reasonable price and a great variety... More

The self service style restaurant offers a range of freshly/ready made food from pasta, pizza, steaks, seafood, desserts, fruit juices, etc. We stumbled upon this restaurant in the evening in Lugano (before we later learned it's a chain with Manor department store). We had an excellent freshly cooked pasta and a hot served freshly cooked burger steak. The price was... More

Found this place by accident after traipsing around looking for a late lunch at a reasonable price having been disappointed by the quality and price of meals at restaurants nearer Lake Lugano. The choice of food was wonderful, with freshly cooked pasta, self-service salads, bread, fruit, pastries, desserts and loads of other things available. Although busy, there were no queues... More

A fantastic top quality self service restaurant (always been there at lunch). Absolutely nothing to share with the usual plastic self service restaurants where you must queue up and choose something that stays behind a glass, where you know what is it only by reading the labels. Manora hits you as soon as you enter: fresh food, ready to be... More

Manor, a very popular department store has a buffet style restaurant. Because of the high volume the food is fresh and good. Probably the best selection in Lugano! Not a elegant setting, but a great place for a quick meal with good food.
