Wanted to take my parents somewhere different for dinner and was not disappointed. The menu is varied and reasonably priced, and given the quality of the food in terms of taste and presentation, this little restaurant punches above its weight. Yes, the basement location under an hotel is unusual, but the food, service and general ambience make Cafe Cassis stand... More

It's really a nice French cooking food restaurant. Day specials were wonderful and delicious. We had a surprise with a 10% discount as hotel residents.

Everyone in our party thought their food was excellent, without exception. Highly recommended! The restaurant is in a bit of a basement but there are windows. Staff friendly.

I decided to go there with a friend of mine after reading all the wonderful reviews here. We were in town for a couple of days as tourists. I was a bit disappointed in the restaurant though as it does not seem to reflect all the amazing reviews people left here. They do have really friendly staff and good service... More

We had a delicious 3 course meal, it was very well prepared. The service was great, I saw a warning that groups over six were charged an extra 10% hospitality, but they immediately recognized we were a family, and didn't put it on the bill, we didn't even have to ask. It's a cozy place run by a family and... More
