Cafe Cassis is a great little find . The food is amazing and the cost very reasonable for such a high standard of cuisine. There is a great choice for every palate. I had the Duck for my main this evening it was so delicious and just melted in the mouth. The flavour of the Apples, Dauphinoise Potato and Ratatouille... More

Superb food and service. Visited on a lunch time and sampled the set menu. Delightful, tasty dishes beautifully presented. Staff were also incredibly friendly and helpful when my partner and I could not choose a wine! Lovely choice by the way. Shame its at the other end of the country.blooking forward to another trip up North soon.

We booked this restaurant purely on other recommendations both on TripAdvisor and Yelp, and everyone else couldn't have been more spot on. There were five of us, and each of us truly enjoyed the food. My favorite, beyond my tasty seafood casserole, was the savory fois gras brulee...truly to die for. The adorable French hostess and I gushed over it,... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by the owner of our hotel as she uses it from time to time. What a lovely place, the staff are very friendly. Choice of food from the menu or the specials board all looked amazing, we plumped for the pigeon breast, rabbit terrine, venison and pheasant all beautifully cooked and tasted great with... More

Went to Cafe Cassis this time last week to celebrate my husbands special birthday! Used the online booking system which was very easy and straightforward. The restaurant is in the basement below a hotel, lovely little lights down the stairwell and a totally relaxed but professional atmosphere. You can tell that the food is king here which is how it...
