We made a last minute decision check this place out based on other Trip Advisor reviews. We went to dinner around 8pm. We did not have a reservation and we both speak poor French. I'm prefacing this review with that bit of information to acknowledge that we didn't expect the best service. I know reservations and regulars get priority. But the service we got was just offensive.

The initial seating, taking our orders and bringing the first course was fine. No issues.

Then we waited. So long that we finished our bottle of wine. I asked for another. It didn't come. Neither did our entrees.

≈40 minutes after our first course was cleared, we received our entrees. I order the duck, but received the steak. It took so long to come that I just kept it. Our wine never came. Our water was never filled. Our waiter couldn't have been less interested in any table that wasn't directly in front of the restaurant.

Once we finished our entree, the dessert came out relatively quickly (10-15min?). Then came the real fun. We asked for the check when dessert was cleared, because we worried the sun might come up before a coffee came. About 30 minutes after asking for the check, our waiter come by with a credit card reader and drops it on the empty table next to us without saying a word. Then about 10 minutes after that, the other waiter came by and asked what we were waiting for. He had no idea what stage of our meal we were in. We probably should have just dined & dashed at that point, but we didn't. A few minutes later, the check finally came and I made sure to pay in cash so I wouldn't have to wait for a credit card.

To be as fair as I can muster, the food was very good. But it was so overshadowed by horrible service.

We had our best meal here while in Cassis. Excellent and fresh food and wine. Our fish was some of the best on the trip, the salads and desert were also fantastic. Very unlike the terrible food served at some of the restaurants at the port.

We read about restaurants in Cassis on Tripadvisor and can only tell that the grades are well deserved. We ate 3 different menues at a price between 22-30€ and was pleased with all of it. Great starters in great portions and main courses in the same way (I eat a very good grilled sea bass with potato puré and broccoli timbal). Service ln a friendly and a choose free way. For us who been on the beach the whole day and didn't want something to fancy this was top notch! As always you find the best food in the alleys on the side streets but not far away from the tourist traps.

Each had a 30 euro set menu consisting of 3 courses - food was cooked beautifully, particularly the duck! Highly recommended.
