“The Scala”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

We ate here twice in one week and I do not do that very often. The setting, the service, the food, the whole experience. The chef is from scandiavia I think and she was lovely. We ate out side both times and the garden is lovely

“Wonderful place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

You may pay the same price as a meal at home but the food and wine here is wonderful with a lovely outside area for dining and a little "snug" bar for a pre dinner drink. Great staff and service.

“Lovely restaurant! Amazing steak!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013 via mobile

We went to scala twice during our week holiday in The Gambia! It's a lovely restaurant, sets a nice mood & you can sit inside or outside, we sat inside the first time & outside the second time, there was no problem with getting a table either time. The first night I had steak, all I can say is it was the best steak I've ever eaten.. And I eat a lot if steak! It came with a jacket potato and even the potato was lovely! Perfect amount of butter, super tasty! The boyfriend had Captains fish which he said was incredible, he had mash potato with his & again he loved the mash!! We saved our next visit until near the end of the holiday, I again had the steak (if its not broke don't fix it :)) it was lovely again but not as render and amazing as the first trip, boyfriend had lady fish, it wasn't as nice as the captains fish but think that was down to the sauce it was in, the staff were lovely and the chef came out both times we ate there and went around the tables asking everyone if their meals were okay, very nice touch :) defiantly recommend this restaurant if you're travelling to The Gambia!

“Classy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

Food excellent - but the order came too quickly. Wish I'd known about the small bar area inside before we ate. Could have a a couple of drinks before the meal

“ALL YOU CAN EAT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

Superb Sunday night bbq, worth the 425 dalasi, all meat and fish is fresh and delicious, with huge salad bar. Only problem is you will role out!
