Great place to visit in Matala for Dinner experience. The Cuisine was fine and the pricing was reasonable for the dishes offered. A great asset was the perfect view that offers a great sense in the dining experience. The staff was positive and the atmosphere...was exceptional. We will definitely visit the Scala again next time we visit Matala. Recommended for everyone.More

Delicious, fresh (sea)food. We had diner and lunch for a couple of times, we ordered different food and each time it was just perfect. The staff is very friendly. We didn't have to wait. Raki or Vodka and grapes were offered to us after diner...(for those who think that's important, yes they will offer it ;-). We eat at Scala last year, this year (the food was as good as last year) and we will definitely come back next year.More

The location is beautiful and the food was good, but unfortunately the service was unattentive and nervous. It took more than 30 Minutes to get the bill. Prices are high and no coffee/raki/ouzo/fruit was offered. We were disappointed to see that greek guests were treated...differently than „tourists“.More

I've been giving that place a chance every summer. Every single time the food is below average, grilled vegetables uncooked, Fava totally bland and too much dressing in the salad; unfortunately couldn't finish any of the courses. When complained about the food the owner got...annoyed by our comment and took the plate back being rather rude. Prices unjustified for the quality of the food as well. The only thing worth it is the venue, however not enough to get me visit again.More

We ate Fried calamari and aubergine paste as starter and grilled sea bass and rabbit stew as main dishes, everything was perfect. You should try the Scala Illusion dessert, very unique and delicious.

Went here for a meal, it’s overdone. The place used to have a Greek charm to it and a family feel. The atmosphere and the food let it down. Fish over cooked, which you would except for the price, not just one fish dish but...2/3 we ordered. Staff were not attentive and rude with us when asked for things like another drink or condiments. Views and food nothing special. Tourist factory.More

My wife and I came here for our first wedding anniversary meal. We requested a sunset view but we were seated on a table that couldn’t see the sun set. After our initial greeting we were not offered another drink and the wait staff were...not very attentive. We ordered prawns to start and these were a little chewy but tasty. We also ordered the octopus which was over cooked. We never complain about anything but felt the need to. When speaking to the waiter about this he was abrupt and rude. It made the rest of the meal almost unbearable. It’s disappointing that the staff didn’t take on board the feedback and they made a scene in front of the whole restaurant rather than trying to resolve the issue. Really poor customer service. We’d heard great things but the experience itself just didn’t measure up.More

The welcome is astonishing, the view is breathless but the service is just … bad. We had to ask for the refreshments of the kids after the cocktails were served (yes we enjoy to say cheers all together when served) but even worse we had...to ask TWO times for the wine to be served when the plates arrived. Mine was just cold the time the wine was at the table and … it was not even served cold. For a restaurant which like go be seen as the top restaurant, this is just NOT ok…More

We came to Scala based on the reviews and it did not disappoint. We had grilled octopus, shrimps and pesto linguini. The food tastes great, the view is amazing and the prices are fair. The staff are really friendly and kind. We recommend it!
