My friend and I came here Sat 24th Jan and enjoyed a delicious lunch for my birthday. Tasty, well-presented food and excellent value lunch deal. Service was excellent - quick, efficient and lovely staff. What a lovely little restaurant. We will most definitely be back. Thank you!

I went with my GF to this restaurant based on reviews from TA. The location is about 15 mins from the town centre in the basement of a hotel. The staff were friendly and very welcoming to what looks like a cross between a British cafe and contemporary restaurant. A bit odd as it's clearly French cuisine (of which there... More

We had a retirement Sunday Lunch for our friend and colleague. The food and service were excellent and will visit again soon. Good choice of food and very relaxing for a group of friends. We have been a couple of times and will definately return.

Although we stay not far away this was our visit to Cassis which was recommended by friends. This wasn't a place we aware of but we do like to support local businesses. It is located in the basement of the Salisbury Hotel but with its own external entrance - down stairs at the left of the hotel. We received a... More

Staying in Edinburgh at the weekend we needed somewhere to eat and there are plenty of places to choose from, but as we didn't have much time there we wanted to make the most of the visit. Cafe Cassis as it turned out, was an extremely good choice, tucked away under the Salisbury hotel you could quite easily miss it,... More

I ate here with my wife and son on the 27th of Dec. Despite the fact that the restaurant was virtually deserted due to an understandable post-Christmas pre-New Year lull, the lack of other diners didn't matter as our waitress was super, the food was great and we had a fantastic time. I have never eaten better venison and my... More

Very well decorated little bistro. The meals were quite good choices but on the pricey side. Staff were very helpful and pleasant. Families well catered for also.

I was at a conference in Edinburgh for a week and found this restaurant through recommendation of my B&B. I went there three times that week, first alone and then with two friends and colleagues. We were all very impressed with the quality of the food, in my case I liked the mussels appetizer and the venison was superb. Very... More
