“Great garden, great food, great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

This was a lovely place. The menu is great and seemed to have something for everyone. The staff are very welcoming and friendly. We were in the garden, it was a beautiful day, and we must have sat there for hours longer than we intended as it started to get dark. Cannot fault this place.

“anniversary dinner 2013”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

chose this unassuming bistro after checking on trip advisor. my wife and I were not disappointed, as the service, food, wine and atmosphere were perfect. the 2 hours we spent there seemed to fly in, isn't it always like that when you are enjoying something so much. the family next table to us were so friendly, I felt that we could have been part of their company. the food was reasonably priced but cooked to perfection and the wine we had was a compliment to every morsel we ate. suffice to say, we will be returning to café cassis in the near future. I won't spoil anyone who may read this by describing the food, i'd rather you experienced the whole experience as a surprise, which it was for us. I forgot to add, the husband and wife team and their staff were "superb".

“What a surprise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

We selected this restaurant on the basis of reviews on tripadvisor, and whilst the outside is unprepossessing what a delight awaited us! Great food imaginatively cooked, and we were spoilt for choice on the menu. One of those meals you didn't want to end! Genuinely friendly service, too, with nothing too much trouble and everything really well explained. The chef even came out to speak to us!

If you have one meal in Edinburgh, have it here!

“Simply superb!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

Enjoyed my evening meals so much I had to go back for lunch. Three courses and a glass of good white wine for less than sixteen pounds. Terrific flavours of Salmon, cod and prawn roulade with a fromage frais dip. Mediterranean style poulet Basquaise with the warmth of paprika accompanied by rice and vegetables.
The menu tells you everything you need to know before your senses confirm that this is food of the highest quality. All cooked and served by the owners. My feeling is that what they have to offer is divine and affordable. Try it for yourself!

“Tres bien!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013 via mobile

Chose this as I'd heard it was the best French restaraunt in Edinburgh. Wasn't disappointed. The market choice menu is superb value, and quality isn't compromised through the price!! Sampled the goats cheese tartlet, the Toulouse sausage, and the bread and butter pudding. All superb and extremely tasty! Well worth a try.
