“is a canteen, a fast food”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

is what is nothing more, it is self-service, there's plenty of choice of food, meat and fish, fruits and a lot of sweets, during the hours of lunch, there's too much confusion, so for a lunch unpretentious and little cost is ok.

“Open on Sundays, options for vegans”
Reviewed 26 October 2013

Buffet-style laid-back cafeteria, open late on Sundays. As a vegan I was grateful to come across this place because they had a few options for me. Unfortunately, the food was disappointing. My minestrone soup was cold; my rice was burnt. A bit expensive considering the mediocre quality of the food. Good music though (Bat for Lashes, New Order and Blur played while I was there) and it was nice to eat in a relaxed atmosphere.

“Good Food for reasonable price”
Reviewed 24 October 2013 via mobile

It is a buffet restaurant with a lot if alternatives. I ordered a pasta with pesto and sea food. Take care because even the piccolo is big enough for 2, depend on 2 of course.

“Food is Ok”
Reviewed 20 October 2013

Lunch in here after shopping . We ordered the grilled fish which is pretty good, so fresh and we ate it with lemon , and chili sauce. also with salad and fresh apple juice. Pretty crowded for lunch since a lot of people working in this area eat in here.

Food is OK, not that expensive but not that cheap either... about Sfr.25 for fish, salad and apple juice.

“This may be the BEST buffet anywhere!”
Reviewed 1 October 2013

Lugano can be a very expensive place to eat. Manora is a restaurant that is associated with the Manor department store (a most unique department store on its own!). The restaurant is next door to the department store.

This restaurant is a buffet - but it's no ordinary buffet. Fresh fish (fresh salmon, tuna, halibut, etc), meat, chicken, etc are available for grilling; there's a pasta station with many kinds of pasta, meats, shrimp, etc. that a chef will cook to order for you; there are salads galore - MANY kinds of salads and vegetables; fresh-squeezed fruit and vegetable juices; a wine bar with many open bottles of wine where you pour what you want; many soups; all kinds of pizzas; deserts; the list goes on and on.

It's only open until 7pm, so it's best for lunch.
