“Great Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

Again Trip Advisor comes up trumps. Restaurant looked a bit basic but it was very busy because of the New Year celebrations and we got almost the last table. We asked if we would have a wait but assured everything was on time by the very friendly Danish chef Meal arrived very quickly and it was very good. Indeed excellent!! There are a lot of good restaurants on the Senegambia Strip these days but Scala certainly ranks among the best!!

“As good as ever!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

This visit to Kololi we only managed one evening at Scala but were pleased to find the atmosphere and the food as good as ever. Whilst it is slightly more expensive than other restaurants up the Strip it is worth it and I would recommend trying it if you have not been there.

“Excellent food and a friendly atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

Wide selection of food including top quality fillet steaks and really good fish dishes. Extensive wine list, including South African Pearly Bay white or red, which were very good. Excellent value for money - 2 main courses, a starter or dessert and wine for less than £30. The Danish owner (sorry, forgotten her name) and staff were so friendly and efficient. We went three times during our fortnight and throroughly enjoyed every meal.
