Hi ! No, i would say no. There are places where to eat but not restaurants. You can have lunch leaving the “air train” to the right and walk along the river side till the end if the last building (400 meters) there you can have lunch with nice views as it is the last building. If it is not too cold you can even take your time end enjoy in any of the outside tables. Squirrels will visit you. Enjoy !
