Expert review of Casanis
Casanis (pronounced Cazzaneice) is a charming French bistro run by Jill Couvreur and her chef husband Laurent. I found it by chance when I was taking a shortcut one day as it’s tucked away in the top end of town near the Assembly Rooms.
Clean French cuisine, bursting with fresh flavours - Casanis is fine dining without the fuss. Dishes are classics with ingredients like mussels and beef and unsurprisingly there are great wines, cheeses and desserts on the menu.
Menus change seasonally, but if it’s on there go for the pear and Parma ham salad for a delicious light lunch.
Tranquil calming green walls, fresh decor and sprigs of lavender on the table give the restaurant a simple elegance that gets buzzier as the evening goes on.
Our waiter was French, which I loved, and the service is low-key on quiet lunchtimes, but it’s more formal in the evenings.
Tucked away behind the Assembly Rooms up on Saville Row.
Set lunches are £14 for two-courses, £18 for three and set dinners (served between 6-7pm) are £18 for two-courses and £22 for three.
Ask for a table in the back of the restaurant if you're on a date, or in the front part if you're out with friends.
