Equally popular with Chelsea high rollers and tourists (‘breathe in the international atmosphere'), Cassis promises chic memories of Provence courtesy of the big-city Marlon Abela Restaurant Corporation – so ‘don't expect a St Tropez mini-break'. Flaming plinths outside may suggest ostentation, but there's nothing brash about the ‘bijou' blue-green tiled interior, Julien Opie artworks and glass-fronted wine displays. The ‘surprisingly unstuffy' menu casts its net wide: ‘awesome' caramelised Landes foie gras, pata negra jamón and salade niçoise with white albacore tuna spotlight first-class produce, while classic bouillabaisse served tableside challenges anything on the Marseille seafront. There are also creative touches, from baby squid with almonds, broad beans and chorizo to tiramisu jazzed up with coffee granité. Smiley, knowledgeable staff are ‘more than willing to chat', and the sommelier gets top marks.
