Découvrez l'offre sur mesure

As A fishing village with a thousand colors, Cassis is discovered to the rhythm of its gastronomy. In the early morning, the café terraces come alive as the fishermen return to port and untangle their nets laden with silver fish. Soon, we will find them on the plates of restaurants in Cassis, grilled or cooked in bouillabaisse… But first, it's aperitif time: a cloud of Pastis or a pool of rosé? 

Here, meals are a moment of merrymaking. We share the Bourride dish, we taste our neighbour's fish soup or we cut the panisses in half. But, in the restaurants of Cassis, the Provencal cuisine knows how to be refined. Between starred restaurants nestled in the creeks and Provencal institutions on the port, follow us to discover the best restaurants in Cassis to the best experience of luxury travel in Provence
