We've booked a table for 4 persons to celebrate a wedding day two weeks in advance. The online confirmation was also received. Upon arrival that day at the entrance they said they didn't have a table because of some big group event even though they saw the confirmation email (where we specifically mentioned the occasion). No apologies, absolutely nothing. They... More

Wonderful views and superb food. A la carte with nuvelle quisine courses. Excellent choices of wine. The staff were attentive and friendly, topping up our glasses regularly. Above average prices but worth it with the quality and atmosphere. I recommend a visit when in Jena.

Stop here for a lunch break (daily menu at affordable price). The food is very good and tasty, with emphasis on nice presentation. Do not forget to make a reservation (ask for a window seat in order to enjoy the view over Jena).

I was curious to try this place, and after trying it I was so impressed. My favorite dish was the parmesan soup

We went to the Scala restaurant as it was part of a Jena package we bought. It was my first time on the tower and in the restaurant. We had a three course dinner, with accompanying wines. Every course was really delicous and thoughtfully worked out. The chef managed to diversify the foods and to still transition rather well from... More

Went to dinner with business colleagues. I was glad someone else knew how to get there - the switch in elevators, then up and down stairs was quite confusing. It was a weeknight so there weren't many diners. The weather wasn't perfect but even in the dark I could tell the view could be well worth the climb. The food... More

Not that there is anything wrong with German fayre ;-) I ate here with business colleagues and I have to say I really enjoyed it as it was my kind of food. I would say do not visit if you are a 'meat and two veg' kind of person. This is fine dining akin to Michelin standard. The food was... More

The restaurant is Jena's equivalent to Seattle's SkyCity restaurant, albeit all the good stuff. Possibly the only real fine dining place in Jena, usually flanked by the businessmen types.The place is very up class and the prices are exorbitant. The food doesn't match up at all to the hype. The presentation is certainly what you would expect at a gourmet... More

My first visit to Jena, and was taken to dinner with business colleagues. I was anticipating "the usual" pork-centric German cuisine. But wow, what an unexpected delight! All three courses were exceptional. Fine flavours and beautiful presentation. I rarely take photos of food, but on this occasion all of us at the table were snapping away. My meal is shown.... More

I've been here twice and both times I was extremely disappointed. For the great views you need to change elevators walk up some stairs and back down the other side, which is all very confusing. I'd like to be able to tell you what flavour soup I had on one visit, but my tastebuds couldn't go beyond salt. Yes, salt... More
