We were delighted with our wonderful dinner at Scala. It far exceeded our experience (food, ambiance, service, and of course the view) at any other fine-dining restaurant we tried in Lucerne during our stay there. Everything was prepared perfectly and the staff was delightful. Thank you so much, Scala team, for a great night.

All too often large and top level hotels have a stiff atmosphere and a rather 'dry' service. Scala in contrast is a very nice and very accommodating yet perfectly professional place. The oxtail soup was very good. If you like it very hot, say so in advance - it is more a matter of taste than a skill of the... More

We had several recommendations from Swiss friends to try the Sunday Brunch at the Montana Hotel Scala Restaurant, and as it was our wedding anniversary we decided to give it a try last Sunday. Words cannot express how much it exceeded our expectations. The weather was not so good but that did not matter as the dining experience certainly made... More
