Great bistro type restaurant in Newington. Food and service are both excellent and it is very good value for money. I always come here for tea when attending the nearby Queens Hotel. I understand they are moving location soon but we will wait and follow

We have made this restaurant one of our regular haunts for some time. Unfortunately, due to outside circumstances, it has had to close in it's present location. That is the bad news. The good news is that Chef Denis & his wife Alison are actively looking for new premises in the area and hope to be re-opening in a couple... More

A group of us had a wonderful Christmas lunch in Cassis last week, and we are so disappointed that the operators are having to find new premises as the Hotel Owner has terminated their lease. I do hope they will find an alternative venue, as their food is well above average, and at very reasonable prices. The staff are always... More

The menu was lovely with excellent choices,beautifully cooked and presented. We had phoned in our choices previously so although it was busy there was no waiting. The staff were as... More

The food and service was superb. Staff were friendly and attentive to my guests. There was 27 of us. Everyone's needs were catered for including three young children. It was great value for the price. I was consulted about the menu & a special menu was made to my specifications for my birthday lunch. All my guests were greeted by... More

Went with friends for what will be our last Wine dinner in Cafe Cassis present premises before they move. Denis had prepared a great selection of foods from his native France and from starters to sweet each course was paired with a wine matched perfectly to bring out the flavours of both. A truly wonderful evening. Can't wait till they... More

Lovely bistrot with friendly staff. Delicious goats cheese and beetroot cheesecake starter. Beef cheeks main warming and satisfying on a blustery night. Love the menu - difficult to choose!

Consistently excellent service from the staff. I could not recommend this restaurant enough (clearly from my many photos). I stayed at the Salisbury Hotel above and just stopped by to take lunch to my room upon arrival. I had not anticipated enjoying my Croque Madame so much. This led to a series of delicious room service dinners with wine. I... More

We ate at this restaurant in a group of 8 family & friends. It was off the back of a TA forum post suggesting it as walkable from the Pleasance (bit too far after dinner in my view - we took a short taxi ride instead). Having said that the restaurant was really very good and worth the walk out... More
