“hearty food in grand location”
Reviewed November 9, 2012 via mobile

this is a spacious rather-grand room in main station. We have eaten several times over the last 40 years. On 9 November we felt it had lost a little of its appeal. Our lunches of perch and mushroom vol au vent were hearty but too much sauce and butter. Wine by 100ml glass. Expensive by UK standards. worth a visit but not for gourmet cooking

“An elegant station buffet”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

The restaurant is in an imposing space with large artworks on the walls, and seems appropriate for a main station, although it is tucked away from the main station concourse. As well as the standard menu there was a Ticino-themed choice of food available the week we visited. We tried a pasta dish and traditional sausage and chips, both delicious. Good choice of draught beer including a guest beer. Recommended way to finish a journey.

“Brasserie SBB : more than a station brasserie”
Reviewed January 22, 2012

Swiss railways are like their clocks : everything is on time, and they don't allow the station restaurants to under-perform

If you are staying in one of the many hotels nearby you can have a good and reasonably priced (by Swiss standards) meal in the Brasserie. I had the set lunch - a tender steak with pepper sauce-for 27 CHF plus 6 CHF for a pint of draft beer and I think only the Chinese place on the corner outside would have been cheaper
