Description
In addition to its fresh, creative and delightful dishes rooted in Mediterranean cuisine, the Scala Restaurant in Lucerne, which was awarded 15 points by Gault & Millau, also offers a wonderful setting decorated in the Art Deco style. The MONTANA cuisine embodies the ease of the South, and draws on influences from southern Switzerland, Italy, France and Greece. Our long-serving head chef, Johan Breedijk, places great importance on ensuring that all of our dishes are freshly prepared every day, with excellent ingredients. Our kitchen is open to all of our guests; at any point, you can glance over the shoulder of our kitchen team and watch as your menu is created before your eyes. To top off your lunch or evening meal, head to the Scala Restaurant or Scala Terrace for a breathtaking view over the lake, the mountains of central Switzerland and the historic centre of Lucerne.
