Diner Reviews
  • "We opted for the 2 course plus wine offer at £26.50. Upon seating, service started well and all the staff were friendly at least. However, things went downhill from here, with one of us being served a starter and the other 2 guests had to wait for about 20 minutes before we spoke to the waiter and requested for all the starters to be served together. Naturally 10 minutes later, the other 2 starters did arrive as well as the main course!!! Not sure why they messed up like this. Furthermore, from the beginning the food was being served to the wrong people. Anyway, food was average but this can be forgiven if service was better. Please note the restaurant was not busy, esp for a Friday night, so I guess this explains everything!"

  • "My friend and I ate at lunchtime but we were the only people in the restaurant! We did a top table deal, however the choice was not great. The food we did have was very good, however being the only people in the restaurant meant it lacked a bit of ambience!"

  • "Great place with delicious food. Good value for money"
    dined on 29/03/2014
  • "The meals were ok. My risotto was quite good; partner's chicken -- boring. The restaurant, itself, is an attractive place, and unusal these days, one can actually have a conversation and be heard."
    dined on 28/03/2014
  • "the pre fix menu is amazing. it's good value indeed. portion might be slightly less/smaller, yet overall quality is quite good."

  • "We visited Cassis bistro for a Saturday lunch. We had the set champagne brunch menu. The food was fabulous and the service excellent. We only wished we lived nearer so we could go every week!"
    dined on 08/03/2014
  • "Good choice on set menu with well presented, tasty food. Service was attentive and helpful. Good cocktails at a very pleasant bar. What lets the restaurant down is its lack of customers....it is a little off the beaten track. A shame because it is nicely lit and welcoming."
    dined on 07/03/2014
  • "Lovely restaruant with a nice atmosphere, buzzy, adequately lit while still verging on intimate. Great service and great people watching. The food was excellent with ample portions. Certainly one to be repeated."
    dined on 08/03/2014
  • "We had an absolutely excellent meal at Cassis Bistro, every course was very well executed and delicious. The service was attentive but never intrusive. One of the best italian meals we have eaten."
    dined on 07/03/2014
  • "Booked for a pre-theatre meal and took advantage of the top table 2 courses and glass of wine for £22. We were late and slightly rushed, but the staff were so helpful in getting our food out on them and even stopping a cab to take us to the venue on time. The amuse bouche was tasty and there was a ready supply of bread. My only reservation was that the meals themselves were very small and my main lacked any carbohydrate portion. However, the food was creative and tasty. Would return!"

  • "this restaurant is not sure what it is. Subdued lighting, everything in beige, large Michelin style tables for 2 but the food is not up to scratch. Some is good - but I had chicken from the toptable menu and two bits were burnt and one was under done. I am not sure if this is because we were on a toptable menu and therefore had no rights as we were paying so little (2 courses for £22 which is still rather a lot). We were there on a Thursday night and 3 other tables were occupied. Service was attentive - with so few people there. Just quite a strange place. Sorry but words are failing me."

  • "Great happy hour with equally great cocktails....girls night out As the booths are ideal.. service very attentive and has become an after work favourite. ."
    dined on 21/02/2014
  • "Although the food was OK and the service was very attentive, the ambience was just not there. I would expect more for a Friday night. The best thing about the restaurant are the cocktails, these I would recommend to all!"
    dined on 07/02/2014
  • "We loved Cassis. Great food, wonderful, attentive but not cloying. I wish I lived locally as would be a regular there. If you're going to the museum's, make a point of wandering over to Brompton Rd after for food."
    dined on 07/02/2014
  • "Food was tasty and well presented. Service friendly and attentive. Was quiet for a Friday night, atmosphere warm and inviting. Nice place for dinner with friends or partner."
    dined on 01/02/2014
  • "Dined here on Friday night on the toptable set menu. The bistro is very nicely designed and is a wonderful, light space. Service was excellent, striking the balance being being welcoming and efficient but not too intrusive. The food was mostly wonderful and all was perfectly cooked. The scallop carpaccio starter was a real delight as was my husband's beef carpaccio. The mains were great, although I could have done with some green and less potatoes on my chicken dish. Desserts were lovely and light though some more coulis / custard would have gone down a treat. We had complimentary potato croquettes and petit fours which was fabulous, really appreciated. Excellent value. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening and highly recommend Cassis."

  • "Food was very tasty. Also the vine list was great. We will go there again for sure. It is very good Italian restaurant."
    dined on 27/01/2014
  • "The photos don't do Cassis justice. We thought it might be borderline a brunchy cafe as the pictures are quite light and daytime, but it actually a nicely moody swanky bar and restaurant. Banquette booths for 4 by the bar are good for a small group. Half price drinks, pretty much everything, till 8 is a find in this area of town and cocktails are well made and swift to arrive. Food was good if not amazing, the octopus with beans was pretty bland but fish well cooked. Apparently has been open 2 years but felt new as all in good nick."
    dined on 25/01/2014
  • "We only booked the offer at the last minute and what a good meal email had. The set menu was taken from the a la carte -Sent so there was no sense of being on a poor menu. Instead just a really nice meal. Highly recommended! My veal carpaccio had a serious amount of truffle, my pork fillet for main was just lovely!"
    dined on 17/01/2014
  • "Went with friends for the Toptable set menu deal. It was worth it for the deal but not if you hadn't. My fish was salty but the others were happy with their dishes. Service was good, but it did feel like they were rushing us even though the restaurant was only 20% full."
    dined on 10/01/2014
  • "Great service, nice atmosphere the food was decent. So given the restaurant's current meal deal, it was very good value."
    dined on 04/01/2014
  • "My family and I had a lovely NYE meal here - would recommend for special occasions. Super friendly staff, excellent service."
    dined on 31/12/2013
  • "Had the 2 course lunch menu. Outstanding value and service. Food superb and frequent refills of fresh bread. Just off the beaten track but withing walking distance of Harrods and the Museums. Definitely worth it."
    dined on 27/12/2013
  • "We wanted a place to take an American before visiting the V&A. We chose the special lunch, which turned out to be good value - and good food. We all took the cauliflower soup - a little bit tangy with some slivers of raw cauliflower. Then we had the chicken - not a dry lump but a moist roulade. Only disappointment was that the place was not as full as it deserved to be, but then it was a winter Monday."
    dined on 16/12/2013
  • "very nice! portion is large, food quality is good!!!!"
    dined on 13/12/2013
  • "This is my second visit in the last week - once I discovered how good it was, decided to take another friend there for lunch. With the top table deal - really good value and good choices. Service in particular was outstanding this time."
    dined on 19/12/2013
  • "We went for lunch on a weekday and were warmly greeted and had attentive service throughout our meal. The set price menu is good value. The food was basic bistro fare, good but not exceptional."
    dined on 12/12/2013
  • "A great place to go for any meal - service is friendly and good. The setting is welcoming and somehow also sophisticated. The food is quality and exceedingly good value with their special offer. Have already booked again for next week!!"
    dined on 11/12/2013
  • "I visited this restaurant as one that often comes up as one of the best Italian places in London. The food didn't disappoint - excellent. I have to say it felt a little expensive but that may reflect the realities of South Kensington."
    dined on 02/12/2013
  • "My boyfriend and I took my parents out for dinner at this place and it was very pleasant, the food was great, it seems to specialize in seafood. The ambiance was perfect, not too noisy."
    dined on 01/12/2013
  • "We went to Cassis after a day of Xmas shopping and were really impressed. Ok the place was fairly quite just before 6pm but we had booked on the brunch with champagne deal and were ready for dinner after a busy day. I am usually a bit sceptical if a restaurant offers you "free pouring" of anything and worry it might be inferior quality or hard to get refilled, but was proved wrong on both counts. The champagne was delicious and the waiter very attentive to refill our glasses regularly. The food was also very good, being able to choose any three dishes from a quite large menu, there was plenty to please everyone. The bread was also divine! Would definitely return."
    dined on 30/11/2013
  • "Tasty Italian food in a convenient location. We had lunch at 1.45 and service was fast and ambiance was cosy and quiet. The name Bistro is not really appropriate since it is more a pleasant restaurant than a food cafe. Nice Sicilian touch for the desserts. Not disappointed since it offers other Italian dishes than the ones usually found everywhere."
    dined on 29/11/2013
  • "The menu was very heavily geared to tartare starters but a veal carpaccio with truffles proved superb as did a butternut squash soup with amaretti. The main dishes were also good:the crispy roast chicken was good value. The menu overall seemed slightly overpriced but the atmosphere was relaxed and service efficient and friendly."
    dined on 24/11/2013
  • "A very enjoyable location, very good service and good food."
    dined on 22/11/2013
  • "food was good but no ambience and the prices are well over the top, particularly for wine"
    dined on 21/11/2013
  • "Lovely salmon starter and the lemon sole was light, fresh and good value for money for a set menu!"
    dined on 22/11/2013
  • "The set menu dinner was very good value and first rate cooking. The service was attentive and friendly I would happily recommend JP."
    dined on 16/11/2013
  • "I had heard of Cassis, near South Ken, for a long time. I finally went last night. It's described as a Provencal bistrot. It is more like a nice restairant with off white tones, cool pictures and a nice quiet atmosphere. The food definitely did not say Provence to me but iwas really good. We had a Burratta and a Tuna tartare to start with, followed by a halibut and a sole. One minor glitch: the vegs coming with the halibut were very few. I had to order some mash. I had a fondant to finish, which was delicious, and my friend got scrumptious cannoli. A bit pricey given the portions but very enjoyable. The service was very good when it was the waitress. The waiter was not as good or friendly."
    dined on 14/11/2013
  • "We are very wary about set menus. They are often minuscule and totally unlike the normal fare. That is not the case here. Whilst we enjoyed Tuna Tartare so did the mainstream diners, same portion size. The Bass and Linguine followed, again excellent and you can choose your desert from the main menu. The included wine is pretty bleak especially the red. It would be better left out. It does get very crowded and the tables are very, very close together. But worth it for the food!"
