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

It is a buffet restaurant with a lot if alternatives. I ordered a pasta with pesto and sea food. Take care because even the piccolo is big enough for 2, depend on 2 of course.

Lunch in here after shopping . We ordered the grilled fish which is pretty good, so fresh and we ate it with lemon , and chili sauce. also with salad and fresh apple juice. Pretty crowded for lunch since a lot of people working in this area eat in here. Food is OK, not that expensive but not that cheap... More

Lugano can be a very expensive place to eat. Manora is a restaurant that is associated with the Manor department store (a most unique department store on its own!). The restaurant is next door to the department store. This restaurant is a buffet - but it's no ordinary buffet. Fresh fish (fresh salmon, tuna, halibut, etc), meat, chicken, etc are... More

The self-service restaurant is located in the center of Lugano, in the shopping mall Manor. It's a very good place for people working or visiting the city. The prices are not high as in a normal restaurant, but the restaurant itself is not the cheapest. If you want to eat during a shopping day, this is the best place. The... More

Have been there about 15 times on various occasions, it is a nice place, but certain things can be improved. The pasta for example, is inconsistent. One day it will be delicious and the other day it will be bland and tasteless. I took my father there when he visited and told him it was going to be very good... More

It was certainly a relief to find this place as one can spend twice as much at any of the other restaurants in the area. This is a high quality fresh restaurant, to describe it like an American I would say that it is like a golden coral but way way better food. Lugano is a nice little city too... More
