I loved everything about this restaurant--the ambience, the cuisine, the service and the view. The ambience is so elegant, like a step back in time. One thing I liked in particular about the service was the team looking after our table. They were attentive without being too much. We wanted for nothing. The bar next door was cozy and inviting....

The Hotel/Restaurant is a little outside Center Town, but reachable by a hotel-own funiculaire (in face of the Palace Hotel). Large windows in all restaurant rooms make a great view over the Lake Lucerne, the Mountains and a part of the old town. I heard positive comments only.

We had been for lunch at Scala. Its in the quiet surroundings of Haldenstien area. The view from the restaurant is breathtaking overlooking Lake Lucerne. The service, quality of food and overall ambience is excellent. Must Visit if you are in Lucerne for a holiday.

We were fortunate enough to be invited by friends to enjoy a meal here, on a beautiful summer's evening. The service was impeccable, and the food excellent. However, it was the wonderful outdoor terrace, overlooking the lake, that made it a memorable occasion. It was undoubtedly expensive (luckily we were not paying), but worthwhile, in my book, for the experience.

This is a wonderful culinary experience. Saturday lunch was a treat. We had the set menu , and the al carte menu. The main course selection included salmon , and a perfectly prepared lamb topped with Japanese garlic. Both a real treat. The service is equally top class , topped off by a great view of the lake.

Rude service, old property, terrible food, over priced. This is not a restaurant for people in the know it's for tourist that know nothing. You will be very disappointed, we had a group of 6 guests waiter gave menu with prices to lady rather than man. Really embarrassing and slow arrogant service.

Nice looking establishment, the employees were professionals but the food was on the average side if not for my love of curries. Just too expensive.

The terrace was totally booked so we "settled" for a window table in the main dining room. View is wonderful and the food superb.
