Description: "For the ultimate fine French dining experience, you can't go past La Villa Madie restaurant - an offshoot of renowned chef Jean-Marc Banzo's award-winning Le Clos de la Violette. Set on the seaside between the rugged cliffs of Cap Canaille and the Mediterranean, this Michelin-starred restaurant boasts stunning sea views, and the Deco-style dining room – with an elegant chocolate and cream colour scheme – has a divine summer terrace for al fresco dining. The classic Provencal menu includes regional favourites such as foie gras with morels, and succulent lamb served with roasted garlic and goast's cheese potato gratin. The wine list, created by acclaimed sommelier Enrico Bernardo, features a selection of fine wines from the south of France. "

Had lunch as part of a tour group. Positives were the ambience, view, wines, entree, cheese and dessert. Disappointed in the main dish. Most of us had a set menu of rabbit, which was dry and oily (my mother cooked rabbit much better). The side dish of vegetables was also very oily. Cannot rate it for value, because the cost... More

I went to Villa Madie with my family and my service dog. We pulled into the parking lot and a man came up to us. He saw the dog and would not let us in. Not even to cancel our reservation. We told that he was a service animal and he just shrugged his shoulders.

By far my favorite restaurant in Cassis. I eat here frequently throughout the year when in southern France. They just received their 2nd Michelin star and it is well earned and deserved! They are very accommodating for dietary allergies and vegans...plus the view from the terrace is out of this world spectacular!

Uncredible but true, with the same splendid view you may have two choice. Dining in the gastronomic and well known retaurant or on the upper floor eating for a lower price at ' la petite cuisine' where we went today, fresh products with delicious barbecue cookin. The service is excellent professional but friendly, a large selection of Cassis wines is... More

The restaurant offers a variety of a la carte dishes and one menu in seven courses (incl the amuse bouche). It started with a revealing combination of perfectly cooked Breton lobster and excellent al dente porcini placed on a thin slice of cracker accompanied by Barolo vinaigrette. The second course was a tasty monkfish in tandoori style and acidified cream... More

We found this restaurant because it was next to where we parked on a recent visit to Cassis. We were rewarded with a seat on the terrace, overlooking a secluded ocean view, and ate amazing fresh fish--prepared with delightful vegetables, cooked to perfection. Our only regret was not having time to stay for dessert.

I visited this restaurant in the middle of summer so I could really enjoy the impressive location on the sea. However from all the tables on the terrace you can enjoy it there are few "first row" ones that really are worth the bill. The food was very good and surprising. I had an entree of Tomatoes on a basil... More

Very nice view as so many restaurants in so many places by the sea!!! Excellent service. But... outrageous price! 40 to 50 euros for a very small entree mostly consisting of vegetables and 3 very tiny pieces of langouste(scampi). Then,always on the same regimen, 3 pieces of a young sheep(agnelet) with the same vegetables and a few plain gnocchis. Always... More
