Our book group came here for our Christmas lunch. Some of us have been before and always liked it. It was new to others but they had heard good reviews. The menu was lovely with excellent choices,beautifully cooked and presented. We had phoned in our choices previously so although it was busy there was no waiting. The staff were as... More

The food and service was superb. Staff were friendly and attentive to my guests. There was 27 of us. Everyone's needs were catered for including three young children. It was great value for the price. I was consulted about the menu & a special menu was made to my specifications for my birthday lunch. All my guests were greeted by... More

Went with friends for what will be our last Wine dinner in Cafe Cassis present premises before they move. Denis had prepared a great selection of foods from his native France and from starters to sweet each course was paired with a wine matched perfectly to bring out the flavours of both. A truly wonderful evening. Can't wait till they... More

Lovely bistrot with friendly staff. Delicious goats cheese and beetroot cheesecake starter. Beef cheeks main warming and satisfying on a blustery night. Love the menu - difficult to choose!

Consistently excellent service from the staff. I could not recommend this restaurant enough (clearly from my many photos). I stayed at the Salisbury Hotel above and just stopped by to take lunch to my room upon arrival. I had not anticipated enjoying my Croque Madame so much. This led to a series of delicious room service dinners with wine. I... More

We ate at this restaurant in a group of 8 family & friends. It was off the back of a TA forum post suggesting it as walkable from the Pleasance (bit too far after dinner in my view - we took a short taxi ride instead). Having said that the restaurant was really very good and worth the walk out... More

Cafe Cassis had been recommended by the B&B as well as an old friend who lived locally. On arrival it looked promising and the staff very welcoming. The menu was limited, but with the daily specials should meet most needs. When the food arrived, we were all disappointed. The Scallops tasted good, but very lacking in scallops. The mains were...

This closing at this location at the end of the year which is a shame for this neighbour hood gem. It does really good lunchtime deals and specials. Service can be quirky but efficient .
