“Lovely French/Scottish restaurant”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

Great restaurant, lovely food, good portion size and friendly staff. What more do you want. Not right in the centre but not too far away. Worth making the effort.

“Good food with an enjoyable atmosphere”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

We had a good meal with good wine and a great atmoshere in a family run restaurant. The chef is French and cooked very good food, some with an Alpine base which I enjoyed immensely.

Fabulous deserts.

Great service and very friendly

“Outstanding”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

Our first visit and it wont be our last. Great experience from online booking (worked like a dream), to a warm reception (even though our party of 6 arrived in 2 cohorts), to absolutely excellent food. The vegetarian with us had lots of choice, and our 12 year old daughter was treated delightfully (even though she broke a small vase). Will definitely be back when next in Edinburgh.

“Fantastic. Amazing. Run by truly passionate foodies.”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

We keep coming back to this restaurant and haven’t had a bad dish yet. I adore the fish dishes and shared desert platter. Over our countless visits (up to 3 times one flush month) we have become familiar with the owners, a French and Scottish couple who are very friendly, helpful and clearly very passionate about what they do. The French chef will on occasion appear in the restaurant to make sure everyone is enjoying their meal which is a wonderful touch showing he really cares about the experience of his customers. This restaurant is a little gem of French/British cuisine. We have also visited a rosette French restaurant in Edinburgh but it really didn’t compare with café Casis in either quality or service. Very good value for money.

“First timers”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

We have just had the most fabulous meal at Cassis. We are staying for 2 nights at the Salisbury and would be back for more of Denis's great food tomorrow if we were not booked elsewhere to eat with friends. The menu is very well constructed with blackboard specials and Denis delivers what the menu promises. Edinburgh has a gem in this superb restaurant and we are so envious. Next visit we will be back!
