Nights out in Monte Carlo

Evenings in this part of the world, one is never left short of things to do. With each little beach town beautifully lined one after another along the sea the choice of restaurants on the French Riviera is never-ending, a 10-20 minute drive can take you to places like the glitzy glam of Monte Carlo,Monaco – or up to the ancient fortified village of Eze, sitting on its mountain peak with amazing views of the coast.

We decide to go to Monte Carlo Saturday Night, to Cipriani Monte Carlo. Cipriani’s is in the heart of Monte Carlo and as most restaurants on the Côte d’Azur offers 2 seating times – 8.30 pm or 10.30pm. We choose the first hour knowing that most of us are usually asleep by the second. We arrive and the maitre d’ tells us our table is not quite ready and suggests we have a drink at the bar. I look around at the empty restaurant and wonder if there is something special they need to do to the empty set tables before we sit down. We do as told and just as soon as we all have our drinks in hand, voilà our table is ready. (now where I from that there is called hustling..) We sit down and order, as the restaurant slowly fills up. (what happen to the seating times?) The food is actually excellent, and the ambience is exactly what you would expect in Monte Carlo.
