The food, service and view are spectacular. We were particularly impressed with the attention and care of the wait-staff. After we enjoyed our meal, our kind waiter took us on a tour of the high-tech kitchen; it was unlike any set-up I had ever seen. This restaurant is not to be missed if you are spending an evening in Lucerne.

I just went here for a few beers and wasn't disappointed. The 1 minute Funicular train to the Hotel sets the scene from the start. The staff are all really friendly and the view from the Club terrace is fantastic. CHF8.50 for a large lager isn't far off the average price and worth every penny! Especially as it costs CHF30...

Me and my cousins went there for a coffee on the terrace. The view is beautiful but the service slow and to get our bill we had to chase the waiter. Getting in a place like this you expect to receive the best but it was not our sensation. The cup containing the coffee was chipped. They should pay more... More

My wife and I decided to visit the Scala before my departure back to Boston. We took a chance, and without a reservation, were seated immediately with a smile. The German buffet style brunch was amazing and extensive. It seems as though every culinary taste was not only made available, but done with incredibly fresh ingredients in a pleasingly visual...

I have already evaluated this restaurant as part of the hotel so I will not consider the breakfast which is served in the same area. Staff was all over us at the start refilling our water when we had plenty of water already, then placing the winde out of reach and disapearing. Food was ok but you can easily eat... More

The Montana is best approached by the little lift that slides gracefully up the hillside from opposite the Casino Palace. It is a friendly place that is stunning visually but also possesses one of the most stunning locations in Lucerne. The height gives the Scala Restaurant fantastic view across the lake and to the mountains. On a warm summer's evening,... More

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.
