“Great place for lunch and dinner!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2013

I have only been in Winterthur a month now, and Tibits is already one of my absolute favorite locations - in fact, my first meal after a 15 hour bus ride from Poland was here! I love it! The ambiance, the food, the buffet arrangement and the incredible variety of vege and vegan dishes - I absolutely adore it. The staff are always very friendly (which matters when your German is rusty - they all speak great English) and the place, even though it's always quite busy, has a very cosy, almost home-like feel to it. My favorite? Falafel! To all the staff - merci vielmal! <3

“Vegetarian's heaven”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

Tibits is a chain of self-serve restaurants offering exclusively vegetarian food. The Winterthur branch is conveniently situated on the main shopping street. During the warmer times they have outdoor seating as well as ample seating space on the inside. The atmosphere is laid back, at least outside peak hours, supported by really nice music and a cosy interior. A great place to meet with friends.

The food is a vegetarian's dream, of course. The self-serving buffet offers a vast amount of different meals, both warm and cold, as well as yummy desserts. The price of your meal is according to the amount of food taken, which in my case means I normally end up spending quite a bit, because I love to sample all the different dishes, so my plate is piled.

They also offer food containers and carry bags in case you want to take your meal with you and eat it later, plus healthy fresh fruit drinks.

The staff I have encountered so far was always friendly and helpful. Not the cheapest restaurant in town, but definitely worth the money. We eat there regularly.

“Better than Tibits Zürich”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013 via mobile

I have visited a few times in the Tiits Zürich. It's me & my friend's first visit in Winterthur, we don't know Winterthur well, knew there's a Tibits, were just too lazy to search for other places after a long half-day.

Food were as good as the one in Zurich, still too many dishes with onions (allergic to onions).

I found the interior is nicer decorated than the one in Zürich, it's more comfortable.

The outside area is still on the street but its more open and not like the one in Zurich which is located at an intersection with always a lot of cars passing by (eating with dust & pollution + smokers around).

And their juice of the day! It was so green that it looked disgusting to drink but the girl at the cashier let me tried a small sip and it's actually fabulous!

“Wow! Totally unexpected”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2013

Recovering from the night before and discovering this town after visiting friends for a Saturday night, we were delighted to have this option for breakfast on a Sunday in an otherwise sleepy town, The ambience was comfortable and lively, the buffet offered many choices and everything we tried was great. Birchermuesli and some sort of cherry trifle rocked, and bread was good too. Some nice inventive drinks eased some of the pain from the night before, and all in all., it was a very civilized experience when we weren't expecting one. Yes, it was a bit expensive, but worth every penny.

“No value...”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

No value for money.....food cold, no real service, communal tables and by far toooooooo expensive do not match the quality that you expected when you pay that much. I would NOT come back!

Dear schnege

We regret that you did not enjoy your visit at tibits more.

At tibits we strive for a casual experience - thus the self-serving at our vast buffet, the many cold salads, desserts and snacks (as well as some hot meals), the mix between larger and smaller tables, the lively atmosphere. We know that eating at tibits is a bit pricier than other places. But rest assured that you do not pay for a "cool concept" but for the high quality of our produce, much of it organic, local and everything from trusted and longtime partners.

We hope you'll give tibits another chance. Maybe try for a quiet mid-afternoon coffee and one of our rich chocolaty brownies. We guess, that would be more to your taste.
