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.
