“A relaxing and elevated terrace along waterfront!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

The food was delicious...would not have complained had there been more of it! The courses were artistically presented without too much waiting despite the full house. The terrace is elevated just off the main thoroughfare making it very relaxing at a different plane from the hustle and bustle on the promenade. Reservation is essential...and worth it!

“Yummy meal and picture postcard perfect.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

Visited Cassis to see the Independence Day fireworks and booked for dinner at Nino's. Food was divine (it's a fish menu but meat eaters are catered for to a lesser extent). Not cheap but definitely worth it and possibly the best place on the port to see the fireworks.

Tip: Ask for a table on the terrace when you book.

“Delicious food, the best setting in Cassis to enjoy it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

Dined at Nino's on 14 July and the food was delicious as always.

The setting was sublime for what in my opinion were the best 14th july fireworks I've ever seen in Cassis - not only the fireworks but also the choice of music - just perfect.

At about 130 euros for two people, each having three courses and coffee, together with a bottle of Cassis wine and a litre of sparking water, it is not the cheapest; nor is it the most expensive in Cassis. I honestly believe however, that it is good value for a special occasion like a birthday, or, simply as a treat because you're on holiday. This is not just because the food is consistently good, but the staff are always friendly and the setting is one of the best. Not only is the view from the terrace sublime (you must book ahead to get one of these tables and ask for one when you book) but it is also very comfortable - cool and sheltered without being windy. You sit just above the heads of the passers by, so You are not so detached, that you are staring down onto people, from on high. This allows an intimacy with the setting that I've not found elsewhere in Cassis perhaps with the exception of Les Clos des Aromes - but then you can't see the sea.

Ideally, you'll have booked to stay in one of the three suites above Nino's so you can wander around the port and back to your 'hotel' without having to hike up hills. Again not the cheapest, but not the most expensive and you get the privilege of the best breakfast setting in Cassis (a table on the terrace where you had the night before) and Nino's also thoughtfully provides a free parking pass for the Viguerie car park.

“Great but over-priced?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013 via mobile

I think the other reviewers captured the essence of the place, so I won't be redundant. This is a real fish restaurant for a special occasion. We weren't on a particularly special occasion so my wife and I gulped at the 134 euro price for dinner with local wine and no dessert or coffee. But you decide.....it really is a great experience. Overlooking one of the great vista of the world....

“Best place on the Port”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

I love Nino. Have eaten there many times and have become friends with Bruno, the owner.

Best visit is Sunday on the outside tables. Arrive at 12:30 and spend a leisurely 2 hours sipping local rose wine and eating fresh seafood ..Oh, and watch the families promenade past on their Sunday day-off. So French

Not cheap. Always ask what the freshest catch might be. I usually have the langoustine and a salad ... and did I mention the Rose?
