About La VoileLa Voile, “the sail” in French, is an authentic French brasserie imported from the South of France, with unmatched success on elegant Newbury street. The original “ La Voile au Vent”, as it was called, was founded in 1947 and was one of the oldest and most appreciated restaurants in Cannes. They say that Hemingway, a regular patron at one time, even wrote about it in his novels.
