Dined here 14 nights of our holiday, and we had exciting contemporary dishes that were quite simply a delight. Attentive and efficient table service by delightful staff. Loved it!

“Outstanding in every respect!”
Reviewed 12 August 2014 via mobile

This was one of the most memorable meals we've ever had. Beautiful room with large windows overlooking the lake. Simple but diverse menu. Both the mushroom soup with mini lobster sandwich and warm miso salmon apps were delish. On the mains the seafood bouillabaisse, gnocchi, and Luma beef were all amazing.

Scala is a classic restaurant worthy of any special occasion. A lovely blend of quality / presentation with view / ambience and top notch service. A must visit in Lucerne.

“Very expensive food was average”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

Food was just average, service was great but food was not. My pasta was boring/bland. My husband's veal was a bit tough and his melon under ripe. At these prices it should be awesome.

We had a lovely table with a great view of the lake.

“THE combination of mountain view, fantastic taste with locally grown food”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

The scala, sitting in site or out site (even better), at brunch (on Sundays), (business) lunch or for the dinner you will be served with is stunning and so tasteful. The team in the kitchen serves you such a creative and well-balanced meal from amuse bouche to the dessert. I recommend for the dinner to combine it with a great selection of a glas of wine per course.
The personal which is serving you is outstanding and since many years creating an unmet atmosphere.- You can chose this place for all occasions and for all times during the day.
