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 mediterranean restaurant!! Loved it. Been there twice while in Aruba”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2012

Just got back from Aruba and had to write this first review. This is located inside the new plaza mall they opened up across from the hotels, near the Holiday Inn. The menu looked nice so we had to try it. We're a family of 4 with 2 kids.

This is located on the second floor overlooking the street/shops, etc.. Very nice place and we sat outside for outdoor doing on the balcony. Beautiful decor inside and out.

We order a steak with mash potatoes, chicken lemonato, penne with cheese, rice, broccoli..They had a great selection of food and they bring you some garlic bread while you wait for your order. It was so tasty we asked for more at no charge. They have a small kids meu as well if interested.

Service was great, waitress was nice and friendly. The food we ordered was amazing. We paid around $75 total. Not bad at all. We were so happy with the food we went back there the next night.

I recommend this place hands down for anyone looking for a nice family outdoor/indoor dinner in Aruba. Wether it's with family or a romantic night. Great place to check out no doubt!!!

“Best fillet mignon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2012

Really great steak - Just perfect! Price about the same as most restaurants on the strip. Wife had salmon teryaki which she loved and free glass of wine with a flyer. Outside dining meant the food didn't get cold in 5 mins as it seems to in super air conned indoor restaurants. Would return.

“Eh....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2012

Staff and ambience was all very nice. The food unfortunately was not. For the super high prices you would think that you would get great tasting qaulity food. Was pretty disapointing. I tried to be optimistic and really like the place, but no matter what I told myself, I could help but feel somewhat jyped when I left. We were on a very tight budget, no room for a high bill with a dissatisfied tummy.
