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.

And furtheron, that everything: meat, fish, cake, salads, vergetables, pizza aso is prepared fresh on the place under your eyes and on your special desire for example a steak: mediam or ... as also the best pizza in Ticino. Nearly every day Manor-restaurant offers a Swiss or international speciality. As the... More

A good choice of food, places indoor and outdoor, a kid's place, many differet corners where you may have your beloved pasta, prepared with the sauce you like most. A quick service for a nice place, where you can sit with your family; even small children will be happy

Your budget will hurt no matter where you eat in Switzerland; however, Ristorante Manora can help relieve the anxiety of the high cost of food in Lugano. Portions are abundant (the soup is always excellent). Pizza is a good option and is of higher quality than your regular Swiss pizza. The cafeteria style of eating means your budget won't be... More

This is a pleasant place to go to for a nice fresh salad (buffet with vast choice) and dessert. Food served is not the top of the tops so have avoided it but the pricing is good and the outdoor atmoshpere is convivial especially for families. Open all days if you are not looking for gourmet food this is the... More

is what is nothing more, it is self-service, there's plenty of choice of food, meat and fish, fruits and a lot of sweets, during the hours of lunch, there's too much confusion, so for a lunch unpretentious and little cost is ok.

Buffet-style laid-back cafeteria, open late on Sundays. As a vegan I was grateful to come across this place because they had a few options for me. Unfortunately, the food was disappointing. My minestrone soup was cold; my rice was burnt. A bit expensive considering the mediocre quality of the food. Good music though (Bat for Lashes, New Order and Blur... More
