“Nice food, odd ambience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2011

The restaurant was one of many surrounding one of Ghent's squares. Perhaps more expensive than some of its neighbours. Some nice ideas on the menu and little taster pots while waiting for the food to prepared were a nice touch - shrimp and apple salad served in a small jar with good bread. Food was well prepared but I was a little disappointed by the service - perhaps it was alone, but the service seemed cold and not welcoming

“Excellent in every way”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2010

We discovered Cassis whilst staying at the nearby Ghent River Hotel for four days. Looking around the neighbourhood for good places to eat we missed the Cassis for the first two nights, and dined at a couple of OK local restaurants.
On the third night a local, who worked in a bar called Dulle Griet, recommended Cassis to us. The place was wonderful, and we enjoyed the meal so much that we booked for the next night.
The was very unusual, as we never book in advance. The level of service and standard of food was amongst the very best.
I wish we has discovered Cassis sooner.
Excellent in every way.
