We just did the cafeteria food but it was well priced with a good quality. Coffee was great and pastries yummy! Toilets were free.

Ordered plain Roesti with vegetables; got an oily caked and burnt board of potatoes with dead-cooked ratatouille. Alternative option such as salad buffet was highly overpriced due to animal meats. Simply couldn't find any filling other meal. It is a self-service facility, spacious with nice...More

Went here for afternoon drinks and desserts which we had on the balcony with great views. We were really pleased by the quality of the food. Unfortunately, the cleanliness of the balcony eating area was terrible. Although we were there for two hours, not once...More

The Rösti tasted like a premade one you buy from Coop or Migros. It's super greasy and absolutely disgusting if you know what a 'real' Rösti tastes like. People with no taste (about 70% of the population) will love it, though.More

As befits a Migros "leisure park" restaurant, the self-service Tapis Rouge offers a markedly up-market take on the standard supermarket cafeteria. There is a wider selection (monster bowls of coffee, a range of wines and beers, a grill (if you are there at the right...More
