Cafe Cassis had been recommended by the B&B as well as an old friend who lived locally. On arrival it looked promising and the staff very welcoming. The menu was limited, but with the daily specials should meet most needs. When the food arrived, we were all disappointed. The Scallops tasted good, but very lacking in scallops. The mains were...

This closing at this location at the end of the year which is a shame for this neighbour hood gem. It does really good lunchtime deals and specials. Service can be quirky but efficient .

Been a couple of times for lunch and dinner. The first time had some gluten free friends - who were specifically catered for by the chef - who came out to enquire how he could help. Garden is a boon for parents who might get some peace whilst their children run around outside. Great service and food.

Lovely French restaurant tucked away in a quiet suburb of Edinburgh. Amazing French cuisine with great service. Very friendly staff. No rushing.

The staff was lovely even though we showed up one hour before closing and ordered bottle of wine, started, main and dessert. Our bill was around 60 pounds so not bad value for what we got for it. They have taster dessert which includes few small different dessert and we loved it - nice for sharing (or not ;).

Having visited once before and been very impressed we took two friends there for dinner. Both were lavish in their praise of the starters and main courses, in particular the chicken stuffed with haggis and the sea bass, but they were absolutely astounded at the quality and presentation of the desserts. The Assiette Gourmand (a selection of desserts) is a... More

Great food, and friendly and helpful staff. We enjoyed their pre-theatre menu. Prices were typically for Edinburgh. It's a little away from the centre, but well worth the walk.

Decided to try this place having read the reviews on Tripadvisor and were not disappointed. although a little way from the main drag so to speak, it was a busy night during the Fringe so had a great atmosphere and the food along with service was excellent. If in Edinburgh, a must visit!

We visited Cafe Cassis on a Saturday at 17.00 and were surprised to find that we were the only people in the restaurant. It did get busier. The menu choice was very good and the staff pleasant and efficient. So why the average rating? We enjoyed our meal, the food being above average, but we were somewhat taken back by... More
