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

Dined here 14 nights of our holiday, and we had exciting contemporary dishes that were quite simply a delight. Attentive and efficient table service by delightful staff. Loved it!

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

Food was just average, service was great but food was not. My pasta was boring/bland. My husband's veal was a bit tough and his melon under ripe. At these prices it should be awesome. We had a lovely table with a great view of the lake.

Excellent array of food on menu. First class service. View from the terrace is stunning. Book a table close to the front with uninterrupted views of the lake, city and mountains.

The scala, sitting in site or out site (even better), at brunch (on Sundays), (business) lunch or for the dinner you will be served with is stunning and so tasteful. The team in the kitchen serves you such a creative and well-balanced meal from amuse bouche to the dessert. I recommend for the dinner to combine it with a great... More

Now, let me begin by saying that the trip up to this incredibly picturesque hotel must be on the reticulating rail. The restaurant overlooks the lake with a spectacular view. The food is superb, but quite expensive to American wallets. Take your time. This is not a place to rich in and out of.

This restaurant has amazing views over Lake Lucerne to the mountain Pilatus and professional staff attending table. The food had interesting flavour combinations and we considered 3 courses for 45 euros was pretty good value for lunch at such a premier location. This would be an ideal restaurant for a special occasion.
