Whilst staying at another hotel on Cap Ferrat my friend and I decided to have a bite in the little port. By coincidence we ended up at the restaurant of The La Voile d'Or. The champagne car rolled in and we ordered a glass of champagne an a Black label whiskey. The offered a very nice 3-course dinner of EUR 48 which included 2 galsses of wine and coffee as well. The food was quite good (paté de foie gras, duck, dessert) nad the junior staff very friendly and attentive.
I think the sommelier had an eye ons us from the very beginning because we ordered the cheapest menu. The 3-course dinner was served in only 50 minutes!!!! Even though I mentioned, after having finished main course, that we preferred to wait for dessert half an hour. We asked the sommelier with a smile if the chef was in a hurry in order to be with his wife. He replied in a very arrogant manner: Monsieur, le menu de quarante huit, ca va trop vite!
Translated: if you order the cheapest menu, you have can not stay long here. We immediately paid our check and will never return here again. The place looked nice enough in the beginning, but be aware of this arrogant attitude of this sommelies. The Maitre d' noticed everything, but did not seem very interested to check what was going on. This is not a hotel with a professional staff looking for potential new guests. Like in many place in the Cote d'Azur you have to EARN a friendly treatment. You have to be a frequent guest, then they will treat you kindly and butter someone up. If not, they put their nose in the air.
