Great food for such a small place

We tried every breakfast offered and loved each and every one. There's so much variety you'll have a hard time choosing just one dish. They offer something for everyone.

Although we're used to superb food and ambiance here, Alison, Denis and their staff really provided a marvelous birthday party for 15 of us for my wife's birthday. Everyone had their individual food likes perfectly taken care of - from 3 years upwards, via teenagers and us oldies!

We came here for lunch to celebrate my son's 1st birthday while visiting family in Edinburgh. We had a great time. The food was very tasty and great value. The chef himself came to say hi with my son's b day cake. Such a nice touch. We'll definitely be back on our next visit to Edinburgh. Thanks cafe Cassis

Looking for somewhere new last minute. Looked on TA and plumped for Cassis. Could not have chosen better. Friendly staff helpful chef/ owner lovely maitre/owner. Food 10/10 nothing too fancy just honest well presented fare. Definitely be back soon. The fact they welcome kids means next time I'll take the whole family.

Delightful service, delicious food and delectable desserts. We visited a few days ago and loved everything. So much that we are back again and I don't normally want to go back, preferring something new. A must try in Edinburgh.

Booked again at Cafe Cassis to celebrate our Ruby Wedding as this restaurant is my favourite place to eat in Edinburgh. We received a warm welcome and had a wonderful meal. The starter of mussels in ginger and chilli sauce was an absolute delight for the taste buds. The lamb cutlets with garlic butter were cooked to perfection and the... More

What a find! A Hidden gem absolute value for money. Each course better than the last. Dessert taster plate a must! Couldn't ask for more friendly helpful staff. Should be on every visitors to do list. Can't wait to go back. 5*****+

I was totally disappointed of my experience at that restaurant because of an accident. Boiling snail meal splashed on my face, neck and clothes. Due to someone's negligence I have got a few burns on my face and neck. Moreover, My clothes were covered by many oil spots so I am not sure that I can wear them again. I... More

Normally I do not reply to review’s on Trip advisor as I do believe that customers have a right to express their opinion, as long as a fair account is given. I feel Ekshan; you have not given a fair account of the evening. When the unfortunate accident, (not due to someone’s negligence) happened with the snails the waitress did... More

My husband & I booked this restaurant at the last minute while visiting Edinburgh and we were not disappointed. We were able to sit outside in the garden for a pre dinner drink. The staff were very attentive and friendly and the food was delicious. We will definitely be going back when we next visit Edinburgh & have already recommended... More
