My husband and I have eaten at Cassis Bistro several times and have never been disappointed. The food is prepared and presented with obvious care. From the squash soup/Caesar salad appetizers, to the peppercorn steak, to the wonderful desserts, there wasn't a wrong note. Service is attentive but not intrusive. It is definitely one of our favourite dining spots.

Warm welcome in creative bistro. Food well presented and filling served with smile and attention. Needs more punch to taste/flavouring. Moderately priced Thanks!

My wife and I went to Cassis for our 33rd wedding anniversary this past weekend. We had skipped a company Christmas party so that we could just enjoy each other, take our time and enjoy the evening. Outstanding decision!!! I started with the escargot and my wife had the poached pear and blue cheese salad. We both zeroed in on... More

Small, cozy restaurant with relaxed feel. Very friendly staff. Good variety of freshly made, local sourced foods. Vegetarian dishes always on the menu as well as fish, chicken, beef and pasta. Never disappointed with the selection or the meal!

We had a wonderful dinner here with another couple. Our server was lovely, friendly and knowledgeable. I had the best Coquille St. Jacques ever. You cannot go wrong having dinner here.

We eat here a couple of times a summer and it is always good food and service. I love all the veggies you get and they are all done so differently. The potato/sweet potato in the pastry is excellent. Although the menu doesn't change much, there are always great specials every day.

Cassis Bistro in Lakefield delivers consistent excellent food! We've had dinner there several times and stopped by today for our first lunch experience. The staff was knowledgeable and attentive and the food was excellent. We sampled the escargot (in mushroom caps), they were flavorful and tender. The french onion soup was delicious as was the seafood crepe and delicious sausage... More

We took a chance on finding an open table at Casis bistro on "Date Night" (Thursday's). The staff was very accommodating and found us a spot to wait while another couple finished their meal. The bistro does have a small outdoor patio, but they are not licensed to serve alcohol out doors (not a deal breaker, IMHO). The meals were... More

Oscar Wilde quoted as saying: “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery that mediocrity can pay to greatness.” The Cassis Bistro it is a pleasant dining hideaway located on the main street in Lakefield, Ontario just north of Peterborough. As the name and interior decor suggest, the focus of the Cassis Bistro is that of a traditional French bistro. The... More
