Yea, the location is super nice in the harbour and we should have known that it was a turist trap. We as many where first charmed by the english speaking head waiter. (He later turned out to be a very ugly caracter) The food and the ignorant service was very poor. All fish they served this night where all farmed fish. (Le Loup and the La Dourade Royal) They still call them catch of the day and charge as if they where served on the Hilton. Among worst where there method of deepfrying all the fish to the point where there is no recognition. All the fish came with a pourridgelike vegetable blend (far away from a Ratatouile, if this where the chefs ambitions?) The presentation on the plate where 1/3 dump of the vegetable stew, 1/3 deepfried fish head, 1/3 deepfried lump part of the fish. Very Rustique you might call it ;/ This is not a propper Poissonnerie!! This is not even up to the standard of a fish n' ships kiosque in Germany. It's a tourist trap! I doubt that there is a propper chef working in this so called restaurant. The last surprise this night was that they don't exept creditcards. No, correction a drunk waiter falling in to our table was the last surprise.

First off, the servers, all young men, did not want to allow me to sit where I requested. But it wasn't a big deal. What *was* a big deal is that my moules a la provencale were just mussels covered in jarred tomato sauce. Also, the soupe de poisson was so awful that we now have an inside joke about it being made from our dog's fish-based dry food. The location is great, but with so many other options, avoid this restaurant and spend your money elsewhere.

We had the fish of the day for 2 people. The food was great and the staff was very helpful and professional. They recommended a great bottle of rose to go along with the food. However, I feel it was a bit overpriced, nevertheless we had a great time.

Stumbled across this lovely restaurant right beside the boats, great view, the waiters were lovely and the food was divine . I had the shrimp with pesto and it was one of the best meals I've ever had! The shrimp were huge and covered in a delicious pesto, oil and garlic sauce. I might have to drive the hour and thirty mins back from where we are staying to have it again before I leave France!

We learned that Poissonnerie Laurent was the best family restaurant in Cassis. Went there for dinner and loved it so much we came back for two nights in a row. You will not be disappointed. The fish is super fresh, cooked in old style and the owner is super nice. Great choice.

Thank Jymi
