“beautiful location, but food and service need improving”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

Don't usually write online reviews, but was so disappointed with food in La Scala that feel need to write it down. One of the best locations in old Bergerac, and it would be brilliant with better food and service. Had many meals in Bergerac and this was the worst. Coffee wasn't great and salad unimaginative and drenched in dressing, rather than on the side. Omlette, which should be easy, was too soft and runny and just didn't taste right. Both of us left most of our meal, and when we were asked if it wasn't good, they was no offer of apology or money off the bill. I didn't make a thing of it, as lovely location and life is too short. Saying all of that, chips were tasty. Come on La Scala, these reviews should be a wake up call. You've got one of the prime spots, it could be so much better. You can do it. Maybe be back next year to see if it's got better. If you want cold drinks or beer, sure it's a lovely place to sit. Didn't taste the desserts. Young man serving was nice, but didn't seem too interested that we didn't enjoy our food. He did offer us another serving of the same meal, but had no appetite by that stage.

“Not bad”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

We ended up here yesterday after failing to be served at another restaurant further up the road. They served us promptly and the food was tasty although the portions were on the small side. We didn't get any bread with our meal and our cokes were served without glasses but the owner was very friendly and accommodating. I was surprised to read such poor reviews about it as we weren't dissatisfied.

Looked good from the outside, what a terrible choice we made.
Food, service and attitude not what you would expect in France.
Two couples got up and walked while we were there as not even been served for drinks and they were not busy.Late arrival of poor food and completely forgot one of our meals and were not particularly bothered.
Suggest dont eat anywhere in that square as all appeared the same .Walk one street away and completely different.

“So disappointing!”
Reviewed November 2, 2012 via mobile

Poor choice when there are so many other lovely places. Indifferent waiter with no idea of customer service. Not rude but completely disinterested. The food was poor throughout, how can you mess up salmon? Definitely advise all potential customers to keep walking. What a waste of an opportunity.

“Great set menu”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

La Scala had a fantastic 3 course set menu offer available when we visited including fois gras to start, duck confit as a main and a choice of dessert. It was great value and absolutely delicious. The outside dining area is lovely and there was a really nice atmosphere.
