Villa Madie Cassis

I have read some very good things about Villa Madie in Cassis, but a French chef friend said he had a very bad meal there in the bistro. Who has an opinion, please? Merci beaucoup.

  1. We dined there in the summer of 2009, so my information is dated. That said, we enjoyed our experience very much. The place is perched on a cliff high above the sea, a 10 to 15 minute walk from the harbor quai. You should plan to be there either for lunch or for a dinner before darkness falls in order to have the benefit of the wonderful view. Our meal was excellent. I recall that the dining room was nearly deserted although, in fairness, we were there in early October -- obviously not the peak of the season for a town like Cassis.
