Fantastic view over Lucerne, excellent food and service, a unique place in Switzerland for an unforgettable dinner. As a native from Lucerne, I brought my friends from Japan to the Scala and they shall remember this evening for the rest of their lives.

The menu is not very extensive - but there is something for every taste and even quite a nice selection for vegetarians. The dishes arrive beautifully presented, but the wait in-between courses is much too long. Arriving at the restaurant at 1930 hours sharp and the main course being served more than one and a half hours later, i.e. at... More

You're inside, but it feels like you're outside, and you could actually be at one of the few tables. The food is probably the best in Lucerne and the price reflects it. A leisure meal with a great staff to see to your every need.

It doesn't get better, being perched up on the Montana terrace overlooking the Vierwaldstattersee, best lake in CH. Delectable cuisine, perfectly suited to the weather/season- kudos to the chef for his very enjoyable offer. The ladies that served us were kind, warm, extremely hospitable, absolutely ensured a lovely experience. The view and setting are as good as it gets. Thank... More

Stunning views over the lake and delicious food. Watching the sun go down and the mountains cycle through different colours is something you could never tire off. The food is also excellent and varied to all tastes. It isn't cheap but is worth it for a special occasion.

Visited with 2 friends for a "fancy" dinner, but must say that unfortunately both the service and food was not up to our expectations. None of the courses were "hot" rather luke warm. There was no real "wow" feeling about anything. The waiter and waitresses were overwhelmed with 7 tables with between 2 and 5 guests. Unfortunately there was no... More

We stayed at the hotel for a week and enjoyed lunch in the restaurant, Service was very good and food was well presented. However breakfast was a little disappointing as it was virtually the same buffet each morning, selection of cheese was varied but that was about the only change. The service was not as good as lunch maybe due... More
