Its own small mountain lift from the street up to the hotel and a great view of the lake and surrounding mountains, especially from the Scala terrace. its busy for Sunday lunch but the food , both the selection and the quality, is very good - but the drinks service...

SCALA is the upscale restaurant in the Art Deco Montana. Its reputation is well deserved as it provides wonderful and attentive service with great views and even better food. A tad expensive but worth it!

Were frequent guests of hotel Montana, and just spent CHF 350.- on a dinner for-two on their terrace; food was excellent but customer service just sucked: High-heel of wife got stuck in overly-wide parquet floor of terrace and broke, but manager on duty denied any kind of responsibility, claiming the incident “regular wear and tear”. Did not even think of... More

Despite the stunning terrace, our experience at the scala was far below average! After waiting for 30min for a menu, we were given one for two because "not enough were available". We then had to wait for another 20min before we could order and another 30 before our food came. To top off the evening, the chef forgot to add... More

We had a wonderful dinner (twice) here while we were in Lucerne. We stayed at the Hotel Montana, so it was a no brainer! Definitely get reservations....especially when the rain rolls in so you don't have to leave the hotel! The food was wonderful and service was great! Try and get a table with a view!

This is what a upmarket hotel restaurant should be. All the ingredients for success were there - food, decor, view and service,albeit the last of which was a little bit robotic when compared to our superb experiences such as at the Armani Amal in Dubai. But for a city such as Lucern which was constantly entertaining hundreds of thousands of... More

This was one of the most memorable meals we've ever had. Beautiful room with large windows overlooking the lake. Simple but diverse menu. Both the mushroom soup with mini lobster sandwich and warm miso salmon apps were delish. On the mains the seafood bouillabaisse, gnocchi, and Luma beef were all amazing. Scala is a classic restaurant worthy of any special... More
