We arrived in Edinburgh late on Sept 18...the day of the Referendum. We were tired after a long day's drive from London. We chanced on Cafe Cassis around 9:15pm and asked if they were still serving. They were just finishing up with a few well satisfied tables of customers. The chef and his daughter welcomed us warmly after what was... More

Tried Cassis for the first time - prior to concert at nearby Queen's Hall. Absolutely delighted. Beef cheeks quite special and creme brûlée served in traditional shallow dish rather than ramekin. My guests equally delighted. Very friendly while professional staff. Will be back!

The restaurant was recommended by a friend and didn't let us down. Service was very friendly. The dessert platter was out of this world. Will definitely eat here again.

We never expected to have such stunning food in this little restaurant that is attached to The Salisbury Hotel but it was wonderful. Beautifully cooked and served and the wine list was good too. Lovely friendly hosts too. A real hidden gem!

I dined here on a Saturday lunchtime and could not fault the place at all. It's slightly out of the way up in Newington but I'd recommend going after a nice walk up Arthur's Seat. Waitress was very friendly. Food (soup and mackerel) lovely and fresh/tasty. Really good value too compared to the expensive mediocre eateries on George St.

Another delicious lunch was enjoyed by four of us. Service was especially friendly and efficient, Food still very nicely cooked and presented and still very good value for money. Chef looked into dining area to check that all was well. Over the years since it first opened there has been no noiticeable decrease in the enjoyment of the overall experience.
