We were staying at Viamede Resort for an anniversary getaway, and booked a table here based on TA reviews. Really the best meal we have had in a long time – and not just because of covid. Service was excellent, my husband had contacted Jacky after I made the reservation and secretly arranged to have flowers delivered to our table – Jacky was very helpful in suggesting a local florist. In recognition of our special day, Jacky had the chef decorate our dessert plate with Happy 45th in chocolate and offered to take our picture. A very nice touch and much appreciated. This was the first indoor dinner we have had since covid so I wasn’t sure what to expect, but felt completely safe. Although the seating area indoors is small, the tables were spaced well apart, and there was a screen separating our table from the one behind us. Lots of hand sanitizer available, and masks worn, etc. We both had the same thing – Caesar salad, filet mignon with peppercorn sauce, potatoes galette and grilled veggies. Everything was absolutely scrumptious. For dessert, I had the fruit crisp with ice cream – very good – and hubby had the lemon tart – SO tart and SO lemony, I tried a bite and wished I had ordered it instead. If I lived in the area I would go there just for the lemon tart! My husband isn't much of a dessert person, but I noticed he didn't offer to share it with me and finished it to the last crumb -- so that says a lot! Topped things off with a cappuccino and a specialty Cassis coffee – a perfect experience. Lakefield is lucky to have this hidden gem of a restaurant.

My husband and I dined at Cassis Bistro on September 9 for the first time and we will definitely be back. We sat on the patio and were greeted warmly by the owners. We enjoyed our appetizers of Mushrooms stuffed with seafood and cheese, and crostini with warmed goat cheese and tomato bruschetta. For entrees we had Coquille St. Jacques with basmati rice and seasonal vegetables and the chicken supreme with mashed potatoes and seasonal vegetable. For dessert we shared the Dutch chocolate cake with baileys buttercream along with two cappuccinos. Everything was delicious! Looking forward to a return visit soon. If you plan to dine here I would recommend making reservations in advance as there is limited seating.

My wife and I booked for the first time to celebrate our wedding anniversary which coincided with their Thursday “date night” special where two can dine for $60.00. This a a small but delightful restaurant. Owners are friendly and the food is excellent. We have no hesitation in recommending. You will not be disappointed. Not only is the restaurant highly recommended for its food and ambience but they also have paid great attention to safety during the pandemic. We felt 100% safe while dining there. Suggest you try Cassis for yourselves and suggest to your friends...but please don’t tell too many people as we want to be able to ensure our own repeat bookings!

Last night we visited Cassis Bistro in Lakefield for the first time. I'm pretty sure it won't be the last. The occasion was a celebration of my husband's 85th birthday. We were a family group of 7, ranging in age from 18-85. We were greeted pleasantly and escorted to a table that gave us a bit of privacy for most of the evening. We tend to be a fun bunch and sometimes a little boisterous. We did not want to intrude upon other diners. Rob, our server and co-owner, introduced himself as he presented the menus and explained the specials. He was attentive throughout the evening but not intrusive. We loved his friendliness and sense of humour. Our orders ranged from salads to soup to escargot for appetizers. From steak to scallops to chicken to lasagna for the main course. All the meals were presented beautifully and well-spaced between appies and mains. Everyone in our party enjoyed the food and most of us had room for dessert. As the guess of honour, my husband's Creme Brûlée came on a plate that was drizzled “Happy 85th” in chocolate syrup. It was a special evening spent with family, good food and good wine and wonderful service. Thanks Rob and Cassis Bistro. We hope to be back for a Date Night.

Stopped at this delightful restaurant for lunch on our way to the cottage . Our call for a reservation was returned promptly . The restaurant is small, intimate and comfortable . The two different soups and the seafood crepes with bechemal sauce were outstanding . The restaurant made chocolate cake was not long out of the oven and would be a credit to any Toronto fine dining experience . Service was warm and professional . For the quality of the food the prices were quite reasonable . Steve , Aurora Ontario.

We'd eaten well on the patio in summer and returned for Date Night in the depths of winter. The menu choices are "safe", nothing too adventurous, and the food is well prepared/plated, and the portion size is on the generous side. Warm welcome and service, bistro-themed decor and the drinks prices are reasonable, as is the $70 per couple Date Night menu which is great value.

My wife and I had a fabulous evening at Cassis Bistro. Jacky and Rob were the consumate hosts. They have the dining area set up for Covid but you wouldn't know it. It feels like you have the restaurant to yourself. Ambience was very calming and inviting. To the food (don't have the menu in front of me, but here goes), we had the "Festive Special", Starters- Phylo with apple and a special cheese, Butternut Squash Ravioli. Entres- Beef Bourgonon and Maple Glaze Pork Tenderloin. Dessert- Christmas Cheese Cake, Egg Nog Creme Brule........Chef Sharon knocked everything out of the park! Every dish had its own identity. The flavors were inclusive and not over powering, perfect! Best vodka martini I've had in a while yo boot! Thanks again Team Cassis. You never disappoint! All the best for the remainder of (ech!) 2020! John and Joanne (Toronto/Buckhorn)

Back patio is secluded and away from busy street (so no fumes from traffic, thank goodness); food was delicious but I was almost forgotten for service from the front as people came in at the same time for take out. After the rush, Chef David was able to come out and chat a bit “ en français “. The conversation was about food, naturally, but also about making flavoured vinegars. On a next visit to Lakefield, I was offered a sample of a product to be shared with everyone you love: a chive blossoms vinegar. It is one of the finer flavoured vinegar I’ve ever tried! I hope David will have all his vinegar concoctions available for purchase. It was delicious on salad. Thank you.

Good evening Claudette. We are saddened that your overall star rating of 3 reflected one mistake made (that we went over and above to correct) and not your overall experience and many positives you encountered at Cassis Bistro. We always aim to please. Kind regards, Jacky & Rob

We have been regular diners at Cassis every since Jacky and Rob took over. The title of the review says it all. We have NEVER been disappointed with either the food or the attentive service. We take our visitors there and they too are very impressed. We have spent several holidays in France and Cassis measures up to our culinary experiences there. 10 out of 10 every time. I notice one of the questions below is about high chairs. This isn't a place I would want to take a small child. It is a quiet, refined place, yet not a place that makes you uncomfortable

We moved to Peterborough 2 years ago, and this has become one of our favourite restaurants in the area. The food is consistently excellent, with dishes that are not the same old tired fare you see at other restaurants. We love everything from the appetizers to the desserts. In the summer they have a nice patio, and this is a great place to take out of town guests. A plus is having the owners be the servers, as you know they really care about your experience.

My mom, sister and i do an annual trip, this year it was Lakefield and Bobcaygeon. We were looking for a fine dining restaurant for our special occasion. I had called a couple places and some didn’t take reservations, others just didn’t seem to care if we dined with them. When i called Cassis Bistro, i was greeted with the most friendly and welcoming voice on the other end of the phone, this warm greeting came from Bonnie. It took me less than a minute on the phone (a live person actually answered!!!) to get our reservation set. Little did i realize that this was just the beginning of an awesome experience. When we walked in we were greeted by none other than Bonnie, and the amazing dining experience began. We shared two appetizers, the coquilles st. jacques and the bruschetta and for the entrees, my mom had the salmon, my sister had the shrimp puttanesca, and i had the entree version of coquilles st jacques, then profiteroles for dessert, all were outstanding. The service was second to none, Bonnie was our main server but Shelley was also there to assist us, i don’t think we have ever had a more pleasant experience all the way around. Superior food and absolutely top notch service. The chef also checked in on us a couple times to ensure everything was to our liking. Thank you to Cassis Bistro for making this year’s trip a memorable one!! Wishing you nothing but success!! Thank you Bonnie and Shelley!!!

Stepping in is like stepping into a little village bistro in rural France. The food is OUTSTANDING and rivals anything anywhere in the country.. A MUST stop in Lakefield. Proud to say Cassis is in my home town!

The food was just as well cooked and presented as it was the last time we were there pre-COVID. The staff were professional and regularly checked in with us during our meal. The bacon wrapped pork tenderloin was delicious and moist. The salmon was done to perfection and the chicken and pesto was excellant.

During Covid, we have been heading out of town from Toronto, safely, for day trips. Today we landed here. We had our dog with us, and their back patio was enclosed and could not accommodate him, so these amazing people set a table for us out front! The best private dining experience! Wonderful service, really solid food, at decent prices. We loved it!

We both agree that the smoked salmon and leak quiche (a daily special) was the "best" quiche we'd ever had. We sat on the back patio which was lovely and private. Service was excellent - attentive without overdoing it. Good value. We would definitely go back.
