I went to the Scala restaurant for a business lunch and really enjoyed it. The view is obviously amazing and the food was very tasty. The interior is beautifully furnished and has a cosy atmosphere. I will come back.

I had my birthday (50th) lunch here with my husband. It was recommended to us by the Concierge at the hotel that we stayed at. He also called the restaurant to make the reservation on our behalf. The restaurant is inside Hotel Montana. We took a short bus ride from our hotel, and stepping out of the bus, we already... More

I dropped by for the set lunch -- the only thing better than the view is the food. I can understand why they have a michelin star. This is a must

We are visiting Luzern for a few days. We were looking for vegetarian food with a view of Lake Lucerne and Scala was highly rated and in our hotel. We arrived on Sunday evening about 6pm without a reservation. We were led to a table set far back from the windows and hence the view. I began to ask the... More

We enjoyed the Scale on a Sunday evening for a wonderful dinner. The 3 course meal with matching wines was really good. Enough already as the portions were surprisingly large. Food was to a large extend very good. Interesting combinations and very good preparation. Only the veal main course did not really convince me as the meat was not really... More

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
