Description: Casual but sophisticated ideally located on the high rise strip on a sprawling corner of Paseo Herencia Mall. Scala is a bustling outdoor and indoor restaurant wich features two European trained chefs with Mediterranean and Caribbean influences. The bar offers a great variety of cocktails and martinis and for the wine lovers there is a very extensive wine list, both by glass as by the bottle. Scala is a dining experience you should not miss while visiting Aruba.

Great food and nice wine. The service was great and the outdoor seating was fun. One of the better meals we ate in Aruba

Had a late morning and we were looking for a breakfast place and stumbled across Scala. While they did not have a wide selection, they served breakfast until noon and what we ordered was excellent. I got the stuffed french toast and my wife got the Scala omelet. Both were great as was the coffee and fresh squeezed juice. Highly recommend!

We loved Scala when we ate there last year and returned this year. We were not disappointed! It seems so unassuming tucked away on the second floor in the small mall, but the atmosphere is casual elegant, service is great and the food wonderful. Out of all the restaurants we have gone to, this is my husband's favorite!

We had heard of Scala on a previous trip to Aruba but the menu on line didn't really do anything for us. This time, we were walking around the Paseo Harencia mall when a gentleman from Scala approached us with the menu. He said a drink was on the house and they would refund anything we didn't like. We were hungry and you can't beat that deal, so we went for it. We had a great seat outdoors overlooking the courtyard of the mall and a waitress promptly came over to take our drink order (and yes, the first drink was on the house).

We started with the ceviche, which was so fresh and delicious! It was the best part of the meal, actually. My boyfriend ordered the red snapper special and I had the scampi stuffed grouper. My meal was delicious - the grouper was perfectly cooked and very fresh and stuffed with 4 large shrimp, all swimming in a light scampi. My boyfriend was not overly thrilled with his very small, a little over cooked snapper but it was good all the same.

I would probably go back if, again, we happened to be hungry from shopping but I probably wouldn't make advanced reservation. As we have come to expect in Aruba, the service was tremendous!
