Sadly most of the food in the South of France seems unable to move on from the 1970's. However Chez Gilbert not only serves extremely mediocre food but the service is so arrogant that it leaves you breathless. We ordered turbot - it was not turbot but some un-named white fillet of fish stuffed with pureed carrot (not mentioned on... More

If you are interested in the food, I would strongly recommend not eating here. The location is enticing - on the harbour side. And I think it may once have been good, but the food is not now any good at all, in my view. I am very surprised it is being so well reviewed by others. The hake reminded... More

Nice place, but u better practice your french... Strange for a city like cassis, but they don t have a translator for the menu. Beside that, good food, location, but no AC inside...

We ate here on our last night of 3. Our best meal. The Amuse Bouche was amazing, an escargot in a tomato sauce. We both had "Daurade" (Sea Bream) was very good, unfortunately there were a lot of bones. Dessert was OK. Service was also good. Too bad the French still smoke so much, with our tables 6 inches apart... More

Want to know what it felt like to dine in France as an American 30 years ago? Want to reserve a table outside over the phone and then be sat inside (don't worry, it still comes with a view of the empty seats outside)? Want to be stonewalled by your waiter while asking if he would mind seating you at... More

This restaurant is sensibly priced. The only problem it wishes people to eat early or in the evening at 21.30. Even with empty tables they will not let people sit down beforehand. The food is reliable and the terrace has a pretty view of the port. Whilst the owner Robert is very friendly he is not there in the evenings... More

A busy waterfront restaurant in Cassis, it was hard to choose where to eat and although this menu was slightly more expensive the dishes coming out looked really good. The food was modern, really tasty and good service.

We've eaten at Chez Gilbert multiple times on previous trips and had been looking forward to going this trip. We had a fine experience, as expected. The service was competent, the food was good, the scenery and people-watching was terrific. The reason I wouldn't give it a more than four stars is that nothing stood out as particularly good or...

We ate here at the recommendation of our B and B and were not let down. My wife for got the bouillabaisse which was very good. It's a huge portion and can be shared between two if the other person gets a small dish. It overlooks the harbor and is one of the only places that has white table clothes... More

We were recommended this restaurant by the hotel as being the best for sea food. Whilst the location is very good the overall experience was extremely dissapointing. I am quite used to mediteranean cuisine and the food was really poor considering the price and some of the dishes were not that well cooked. Normally we would say something but the... More
