Fish soup or bouillabaisse - only the taste matters!

Great food in a cozy environment. They squeezed us in when we ended up under their awning in a mini-thunderstorm (we had intended going to another restaurant further down the quay). The fish soup was beautiful - I could have just eaten this and been happy (other reviewers have questioned whether it... read more

I thought I was going to have fresh fish as the owner said, but instead, I had frozen fish, not fresh. We were 4 people and none of us had a good meal. Pricy and horrible!

We've been to Cassis 3 times and each time Chez Gilbert has welcomed us with open arms. It has always been just my husband and I, so we have never ordered their bouillabaisse, because it is really too much food for just two people. In my opinion, the portion for 2 is really ideal for 4 and can even be... More

Nice fish soup for starter. Main dishes unimpressive. Had higher expectations. Fairly pricey, e.g. charging 6 € for an apple juice. Saved by a nice view.

We had read great reviews of Chez Gilbert and were really excited to try their bouillabaisse. We made a reservation ahead of time and called the day before to tell them we would order the bouillabaisse (the owner of our B&B had suggested we tell them ahead of time in case they needed to plan ahead / reserve fish for...

Good atmosphere right in the port. The service is not really good. Rude and unfriendly. We ordered Bouillabaisse, was good, though not great.

Our Hotel recommended Chez Gilbert for Bouillabaisse, and we both had that. The restaurant is well positioned overlooking the harbour, and our waiter had sufficient English to be marvellous. This restaurant is a part of the Bouillabaisse Charter, and on our side of the restaurant the majority of diners made that choice. The wine recommended was local, and not inexpensive... More

This was by far the most expensive meal we had in Cassis and the most disappointing. The menu looked very interesting and the tables were nicely laid in this prime situation on the quayside. But each course was a disappointment. The local wine, which was delicious, was very expensive at 30 euros for a 50cl bottle.
