Lovely French restaurant tucked away in a quiet suburb of Edinburgh. Amazing French cuisine with great service. Very friendly staff. No rushing.

The staff was lovely even though we showed up one hour before closing and ordered bottle of wine, started, main and dessert. Our bill was around 60 pounds so not bad value for what we got for it. They have taster dessert which includes few small different dessert and we loved it - nice for sharing (or not ;).

Having visited once before and been very impressed we took two friends there for dinner. Both were lavish in their praise of the starters and main courses, in particular the chicken stuffed with haggis and the sea bass, but they were absolutely astounded at the quality and presentation of the desserts. The Assiette Gourmand (a selection of desserts) is a... More

Great food, and friendly and helpful staff. We enjoyed their pre-theatre menu. Prices were typically for Edinburgh. It's a little away from the centre, but well worth the walk.

Decided to try this place having read the reviews on Tripadvisor and were not disappointed. although a little way from the main drag so to speak, it was a busy night during the Fringe so had a great atmosphere and the food along with service was excellent. If in Edinburgh, a must visit!

We visited Cafe Cassis on a Saturday at 17.00 and were surprised to find that we were the only people in the restaurant. It did get busier. The menu choice was very good and the staff pleasant and efficient. So why the average rating? We enjoyed our meal, the food being above average, but we were somewhat taken back by... More

This is a delightful restaurant on a small side street not far from the city Centre. Wonderful French food served with a Scottish flair, fresh selections and lovely presentation. Everything we had was excellent. There was confusion over our reservation , which I had changed on Open Table, but they quickly accommodated our group on a Friday night. The service... More

The food was wonderful with interesting combinations of flavours which worked so well together. The staff were friendly and attentive; the service matching the quality of the food. The decor was tired but not as major issue as they will be moving to new premises at the end of the year. We will definitely be looking to eat with them... More

Went there two days in a row because the food is good and decently priced. This place shows how to use the great produce that Scotland has to offer and turn it into a delicious (French style) meal.
