“Our neighborhood restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

We stayed in Cassis for several weeks and spent a great deal of our time exploring all the magnificent and tasty restaurants in this wonderful village. At the end this restaurant, Le Chaudron, turned out to be our favorite. We went again and again ... and we´ll be back. We where very satisfied in every way and had the best steak ever and we mean EVER. The service was excellent, personal and flawless even though every seat was taken and people standing in line. Our best regards to Le Chaudron.

“Good Enough to Warrant My First Review”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

After being rudely blown off for lunch down the street in Cassis, we consulted TA, and the description of Le Chaudron enticed us. Not only were we pleasantly surprised with our meal, it inspired me to write my first ever review. First of all, we were made to feel welcome, even though we had no reservation and it was the height of lunch hour. We only waited a minute or two before we were seated at a nice table on the patio. Despite the fact that my wife is fluent in French, the waiter was more than willing to speak to us in excellent English, and was very patient in not only explaining dishes but making recommendations, all of which were spot on. Pastas were very good, the fish special was excellent, and desserts were also very good. They were also very nice to our daughter. Best of all, after I ordered a bottle of local rosé and we discussed its origins and merits, I engaged David in a lengthy conversation about our mutual love for wine that ended with us showing one another photos of bottles we had consumed that remain near and dear to our hearts. My wife is convinced that if we lived in Cassis that he and I would become close friends. That's a nice feeling to leave with in a restaurant halfway around the world from home.

“A few small steps off the boardwalk a giant step up in quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

My family of four went to this restaurant based on tripadvisor ratings and after a couple of very disappointing meals on the sea-front. A local man and his wife seated next to us told us they had been coming to the restaurant for 20 years and it is definitely the best in Cassis. We didn't try them all ourselves of course but I do believe our friend at the next table must be right. The service was excellent, the food carefully prepared, the quality fresh and the flavours beautifully blended. Another reviewer has already commented on how good the peach cake is. Amen to that.

“charming local kitchen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

a local friend who works at another restaurant made reservations for us at the Chaudron.

The owner of the Chaudron, David, greets all his guests personally and takes the time to check on every table throughout the evening.

Very friendly atmosphere.
Wonderful food.

Make reservations.

Eat the Peach Cake!!! it's amazing.

“Our Favourite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

The food was excellent as was the service and for those not so good at speaking French they will describe everything on the menu in English for you. Lovely restaurant.
