1 review of C.N.T.L. Cercle Nautique et Touristique du Lacydon in English
We've recently been for the first time in Marseille and headed due to Tripadvisor recommendations to the CNTL.
The location of the restaurant is ok and also the food and service at the beginning of our dinner with 4 people was good average. We've had a mix of menu and fresh seafood.
The fresh fish is priced by weight and that is where our disappointment started. My girlfriend and I wanted to share a fish, but since they could not offer us a fish big enough serving both of us, they advised to go for 2 dorades. For us the alternative was ok and we've asked for the total weight of the fish for us. The answer was 600g.
On the bill we then identified, that we've actually been charged 2x 600g and would therefore would have to pay double the price we've had estimated. The trouble then started with the argument of the waiter, that he has mentioned this earlier, whereby 3 of our group of 4 do speak French fluently and have not heard this, but only the fact that the fish weighs 600g.
Since we've refused to pay double the price (110€ instead of 55€), which by the way was half of our total bill, the waiter has been forced to call his boss (padron), instead of clarifying and resolving his mistake of not exactly pointing out the correct weight of the ordered fish. Also the padron refused to clear the double priced fish from our bill but actually threatened us on the phone that in case we don't pay, he would come and clarify together with 2 of his police friends.
Since we felt threatened and wanted to avoid making contact with police in a foreign country, we were actually forced to pay even though it was not right for us and we not at all felt well treated.
To summarize, we will definetily not visit the restaurant again and can nit recommend the unfriendly service and treatment.
