This restaurant served the most wonderful food. The owner/chef was so passionate about the food he serves. He comes around to see his guests to ensure the food is ok. I could rave about this restaurant all day. I would highly recommend it.

Visited the restaurant based on trip advisor reviews and we weren't disappointed. Come hungry as the menu is amazing and you'll want to try as much as possible especially the dessert platter! The girls serving were lovely and genuinely friendly. Well worth a visit.

Loved all the fruit, the delicious coffee and croissants and the fact that they stayed open for us to have a nightcap

We had a relaxed and enjoyable Sunday Lunch at Café Cassis. The food was very tasty and reasonably priced. The staff were pleasant and professional. Surroundings also were comfortable with a nice 'restaurant' atmosphere. Only complaint that the helpings - especially the tasty dessert - could have been bigger. We will certainly return though.

I chose Cafe Cassis primarily because it was only a stroll from my mother's place in Newington and that's a significant consideration when you're 75! I'm very pleased that I did. We had a special - vacherin with bread to start, which was a cheese-box fondue, in essence. Very good. I had the ribeye steak with peppercorn sauce, which was... More

We went here on a Sunday evening during a weekend away. We arrived earlier than we booked (it was a very cold day and so we didn't want to walk around any more) but the waitress was very accommodating. When we said we just wanted to have a drink first, she brought us our wine and said she'd leave us... More
