“excellent value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

buy food and wine by the plate or glass - small, medium, large. perfect when you want small portions for toddlers or just want to sample stuff. good tasting food and freshly squeezed juices, made to order pizzas and pastas.. a lot of value for money and quicker than ordering from a la carte menu...highly recommend it.

“There are a few places, not just one!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

There is actually a restaurant on the 3rd floor, and a counter service at the basement, and another pizza counter next to it. We went to the 3rd floor first, found it expensive, and people there don't English at all. We came down to the basement. They have a Asian food corner. The service person also hardly speak English, but we get by by pointing for the food we want. But found the food too salty for our liking. In the end, one of us try the pizza from the pizza counter which is part of the supermarket. CHF3 for 2 big slices of pizza, and they taste great. There are a few variety to choose from. On hindsight, we would have love our lunch more and at much lower cost if we have bought from the pizza counter. The service person baked his pizza there and cut for you any sizes you want. You pay at the same Asian food counter opposite it.

“Least expensive good dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2012

This was like a Wegman's or Whole Foods food court, but with fresh-cooked Italian food, fine pastries, a wide selection of wines, a cheese buffet, and great latte macchiato. You walk around with a tray selecting what you want, then pay for it, and eat in one of about five areas. If you have pizza you can fill a small bowl from a toppings buffet and then deliver it to the pizza guy. Excellent salad bar, specials including roasts and fine cuts of meat, pasta done much like the pizza, generous servings, and no smoking.

“A cafeteria of very fresh food for lunch, lots of choice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2012

Lots of choice in this cafeteria-style restaurant. Very well displayed choices, everything is fresh and freshly made in front of you. Reasonably priced. Great for a quick and healthy and good lunch.
