Went to Cassis with a group of friends but took my girlfriend out for a night by ourselves and discovered this gem of a restaurant. The food was beautiful, the service was delightful and the setting in the quiet backstreets of cassis was perfect. This is the first review i have ever written which shows just how good this place was and i cant recommend it enough.

Our evening at Les Frangines was by far the best evening we had had in our 10 days in the south of France. The restaurant (whose name means 'sisters' in the old Provencale dialect) is perfectly located: easy to reach and only minutes from the bustling harbour-front. We came across it by accident and remembered hearing good reviews about it so we booked a table (booking is necessary in high season).

We were given a table on the street which was great because we could people watch while we ate! I ordered the fish soup to start, the prawn spaghetti for my main course and the fiadone (a sort of cheesecake) for dessert. Each course was delicious and beautifully put together. The fish soup was bursting with flavour and the prawns were done just right.

Perhaps the best thing about Les Frangines was the incredibly charming staff, who joked and chatted to us in English, French and even some Italian! They involved our fellow diners, who also chipped in to our conversations. It was such a lovely social event. When we finally did leave it was to genuine goodbyes from staff and fellow diners alike.

If you are looking for good food, amazing staff and a social atmosphere, Les Frangines is the perfect place for dinner in Cassis!

Chance made us stop there. Evething was perfect. The food is awesome and all the staff is friendly and well trained. The price (around 22 Euros for 4 services, excluding the wine) is very reasonable, considering the overall quality. We sure will go again, if we ever travel again to the area.

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.
