Very nice self-service type of restaurant. Huge variety of meals to choose from. I really enjoyed freshly cooked pasta there. Considering it is in Switzerland the prices were reasonable.

Crowded bistro type of restaurant, though the food is really good and has a high variety of choice for it's price. Perfect place to grab a quick lunch with friends or family, they offer everything from grill to home made type of food.

We were jetlagged, so looking to eat an early dinner: we stopped in here. Don't do what we did: don't get the pre-prepped food (pizza, etc) anything already made...it's tired and old by the end of the day. We did see people order freshly made pasta and pizza which seemed much much better. Coffee and pastries...but I would just go... More

Stopped off here for a coffee and cake. Very pleasantly surprised by the quality of both which I did not expect from a Department store café/restaurant. Very good other menu choices and prices reasonable.

Totally didn't expect to get fresh-made pasta before my eyes for CHF 10.50. It was spectacular, perfectly al dente. My salad and glass of wine made for a perfect meal at CHF 16. Outstanding quality.

Switzerland is expensive and we were looking for somewhere cheap to eat. Manora is located in the department store called Manor. The restaurant covers a huge area and they serve soup, sandwiches, pizza, a gorgeous range of desserts plus other hot food.
