This was lunch time and I am not denying very busy but when you wait 45 minutes for your order when people who came in after you are being served their food AND have to pay for it because it turns up just as you have to cancel it due to having to catch your coach back it's nothing short... More

We had dinner here, outdoors on the terrace by the water. A very nice setting. Our waiter though didn't want to be there, or at least didn't seem to want us there. It was a struggle to get him to pay any attention to us. He brought the wine and just set it on the table, didn't pour it to... More

...say the locals, they might be right, the bouillabaisse was really good and cooked / served the way it is supposed to be. Friendly and efficient service recommended great local wine to go with it. Small outside dining area, most tables inside.

Staff can be brusque, food OK with some dishes very good (pasta seemed to be a good bet). restaurant has fine spray jetting out over the outdoor canopy area making it more bearable in the heat. No credit cards accepted.

A local recommended this place to us and it was very busy (always a good sign). Staff were friendly and efficient, no English on the menu but staff are very helpful and keen to explain if you need them to. Only complaints I have were half of my fish was full of bones, and the crème caramel was curdled :/

Sure there were tourists there, but it was mostly filled with locals. The staff may have been. Slightly more attentive to them simply because they were catching up on one another's lives. But we had been recommended to eat there by friendly young man at the kayak rental shop. Mention of HS name got us a great table and a... More

Very friendly, professional service. Prompt with meals. Food was of good quality; not exceptional but nice. The location is fantastic, with beautiful views of the harbour. This is a much better choice than one of the apparently more busy adjacent restaurants on the quai, so if tossing up between them, I would definitely go here.

We had a simplified bouillabaisse, with two fish. It was served over cooked potatoes. My friend did not want the potatoes in the same plate. One of the servers was somewhat annoyed when requested to bring another plate. My other friend had a ris de veau. She did not say anything. We asked for a water when we ordered wine.... More

I ate alone in this restaurant and the meal was satisfactory - not great. But when I received my change it was 20 euros short. When the waiter saw me checking it, he came rushing back with a 20 euro note. I got the feeling that this was something that happened regularly - they short change you then if they... More

We wanted a proper bouillabaisse and we didn't go wrong by going to Cassis. Cassis is a beautiful seaside village boasting a port and a lot of charm. La Vieille Auberge overlooks the port on the more elegant side. The food was exquisite, sardines a l'escabeche and a bouillabaisse. A bottle of white wine and an evening to remember! This... More
