Food is good but not really exceptional. We have been three times at le grand bleu and it was clearly a better option. Service Chez Gilbert is slow and they were out of stock of some of the dishes at the 1st service already. Wine...More

I'll assume you are already in Cassis looking for a place to eat. I went for lunch. This is the most upscale place along the port. You must like fish. For an entree, I had a plate of shellfish - snales, oysters, clams, oursins, shrimp....More

not the cheapest option but we ate there twice over a three day stay, the fish soup and the bouillabaisse are absolutelly divine, ( caution,the soup is very filling so don't have seconds or you will not be able to eat your main course)

Yet, sadly, disappointing Bourillabaise. The bourride was excellent, but the fish was underwhelming. The Ris de Veau, however, was the best we have ever had. Anywhere. It was a winter's lunch, so it was not busy, and the staff was enjoying itself. The service was...More

In April my two friends and I ate lunch at chez Gilbert. My travelling companion had singled out this restaurant based on research done before our trip. We were all very excited at the prospect of having top notch bouillabaise. We knew it would be expensive and didn't care. The local wine was wonderful. The service was fine. The stew was the worst thing I've ever eaten. And I've eaten a lot of food. The broth was fishy and I could not detect any spices or taste except "fishy". It was almost as if a fresh fish had been put in water and then the essence had been ladeled into a bowl with some cooked fish. I love fish. I hated this.
