Rail catering. Time to enjoy.

So that you can also eat and drink in a pleasant atmosphere when travelling in Switzerland,
we serve you drinks, food and snacks in the SBB Restaurants, SBB Bistros and from the SBB Minibar. 

SBB Restaurant/SBB Bistro

Tasty treats from the Swiss National Culinary Team.

SBB Restaurants and SBB Bistros in conventional and tilting InterCity trains (IC/ICN) have been serving delicious creations from the Swiss National Culinary Team since July 2013. As well as classics such as Riz Casimir and Veau Zurichoise (Zurich style minced veal), fixed-price set menus are now also available.

All dishes are prepared using high-quality produce sourced primarily from Switzerland. Select Swiss wines, beers and soft drinks are also on the menu.

On the timetable, SBB Restaurants are marked and SBB Bistros , and they are open
from 6.30 a.m. to 9 p.m.
