Nice outside eating area. Good service from staff. Food was nice, we had vegetable curry, which was OK, crepe suzette and fried banana for dessert. The restaurant was very busy. But would just describe it as good/average food.

Visited Scala twice on our visit to The Gambia and would highly recommend this venue for great food and great ambience. The owner (head chef) is at hand to ensure the highest standards are maintained with the backing of a great team to support her.
