Great restaurant opposite the gates of the Stormont estate. Lots of car parking within the hotel and there is a side door (rotating door) into the La Scala area for those with mobility problems.
Despite having made an on-line reservation, it had not been read but we were assigned a table. The menu was extensive and includes food from Hannans.
We had an unbelieveable welcome from a lovely waitress who attended to us throughout our meal. It was freezing with the aircon and we asked to have it turned off; others had complained too. In the end it was so cold we declined dessert but had a coffee. I prefer my chips double or triple cooked; I think the ones here were only cooked once as they were a bit pealy waly / pale and not as well cooked as we've had other places. Will give this place a go again as the menu was appetising

The atmosphere and surroundings are second to none. Staff are polite and helpful. Food is delicious. Will definitely be having more meeting here.

been to LaScala a few times and I just feel it could and should be so much more than what it is. The restaurant is well laid out, the menu is grand, service is good but the food is just average. Ive had chowder and soup that were piping hot - and I would say had been put in the micro. Twice steaks have been overcooked and I didn't know you could tempura a carrot ... Perhaps a shift to a similar menu like Percy French or Cultra Inn would be better.

We had a great meal tonight at La Scala bistro. We both had soup and the scampi and burger for main - both of which were lovely. The service we received from Anthony (I hope this is the gentleman’s name as forgot to check again on way out) was excellent, nothing was too much trouble and he was so pleasant and welcoming. We look forward to coming back for dinner and maybe staying over in the hotel soon

Went for a birthday party (11 adults,3 kids),which was booked well in advance for 3pm on a Sunday afternoon.The hostess really tried her best,but being on her own really stood no chance,we waited for drinks bar water,which must have been freshened 4times while we waited for wine etc.Food was tasty,unfortunately the wait for both starters and mains pretty much made a mockery of both the chef,and as I said the hostesses best efforts.If a restaurant,especially a hotel restaurant can't find enough staff to cover a 3pm Sunday booking then a suggestion would be don't accept the booking!
