The main menu rarely varies because each item can be a new favourite. The board listing the day's specials deserves your attention. Good wine selection. Lovely salads. The paté board is always wonderful. Parking on the street or behind. It's a small bistro but they take reservations; be sure to ask for chairs with squares seats which are much more... More

We try and go monthly. They have a couples night for, I think $40 where you can get dinner for two with various choices. Great atmosphere. Cozy, intimate. Knowledgeable staff. Love the chef. Locally owned and operated.

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.

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

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.
