Gourmet Dining without Stuffiness

We recently had dinner at la Villa Madie and thoroughly enjoyed the surprise tasting menu. Dinner commenced with the usual amuse bouches and fresh bread, and each course was up to my expectations of a Michelin 2 star restaurant.

It was the one and only restaurant that me and my boyfriend really, really loved in Cassis. Everything was excellent - from the service to the food. Usually I do the research of restaurants before arriving somewhere but this time I didn't plan to visit Cassis, it was just on our way and we loved the place and decided to... More

What a wonderful experience. This is a 2 star Michelin restaurant where we had lunch. It was probably the most expensive lunch we have ever eaten, but the food was truly inventive, delicious and exquisite. The service was flawless and the presentation excellent. Of course, the most telling was the fact we could hear the angels sing when we took... More

Was just excellent! The staff, the food, the wine and the view...I guess the bill was "hot"but worth it. I really enjoyed the place as it was my birthday.

Lovely setting, spacious and well appointed dining room. The food was good, but certainly not spectacular. Ordered the Menu Decouverte (chef's choice). Entree and first main were fish, disappointingly, somewhat similarly prepared. Second main was a well put together melange of lamb. Dessert was an overly 'tarted-up', effusion of lemon (tarte au citron). Overall the food missed the mark expected... More

We had lunch at La Villa Madie and found it to be less than its 1 Michelin star. The appetizers were unimaginative: tomato relish on a cracker, onion reduction on bread and fish ceviche on a cracker. Our main course, guinea fowl, was over-cooked and dried out. Only the dessert, a lemon tart, stood out. The service was horribly slow... More

Dear sir, By reading your review and by the description of the dishes I can assure you that you didn't eat at The Villa Madie, 2 starred restaurant, but at The Petite Cuisine, located upstairs of our establishment. The dish you describe is a pissaladière that is served only at the Petite Cuisine. I will join you on one point... More

A full 7 course meal that definitely earned its 2 star rating. It was our first 2 star experience and will definitely be doing this more often. Each dish, and surprise dish, was just astounding and the setting couldn't be better. The view of the rocks and Mediterranean was beautiful and the restaurant itself was very well designed. If you...

Restaurant certainly lived up to its 2 Michelin star rating, with of course a price tag to match. Food and service on the outdoor terrace were superb. Delightful canapies with champagne to start, followed by Amuse Bouche, exquisite starters and lovely main and dessert courses. The chef visited every table after the meal.

We were on a cruise that stopped in Marseilles, France. We had toured quite a bit so we just wanted a relaxing day to enjoy a great meal. We took the 100 euro taxi ride (45 minutes - one hour ride) each way to Cassis. While in Cassis we toured the waterfront and the shops then we walked to the... More
