Whenever we are in Mount Dora a visit to Windsor Rose is always on the itinerary. I always order the spinach and leek pie which is delicious. Served piping hot with a side salad. Don't miss it.

This review is not about the food, but rather the customer service. We have eaten at this restaurant several times over the past few years and were very happy with the food and service. On our recent trip to Mount Dora we decided to again dine at the Windsor Tea room. We called in the morning to see if we... More

I am sorry you were disappointed but we do not take reservations on Craft Fair weekends when vendors put up tents alongside our roads in downtown Mount Dora. We had a waiting list and we called everyone back on the list as room opened up for available parties. Perhaps your message went into your voice mail. The only other explanation... More

We called ahead and were told that it wouldn't be busy on a Friday for lunch. But it was very crowded with little room between the tables and too few wait staff. Consequently, it was noisy and service was slow. The food was good, but the overall atmosphere was not impressive. We will not repeat this experience.

Dear Bruce, Sorry about the noise, but we can not control the construction going on to improve Mount Dora. We also had a tour bus that day which was unexpected, (they come into town and are dropped off and spread out around town.) Unfortunately, I was not in the restaurant that day I was visiting my Mom in Dallas for... More

Food service and price was all very good. Everyone in our group was pleased. I have taken friends and family here when they come down during the winter and everyone compliments the staff about the food and service.

My friend and I popped in for a spot of tea and found that the scones and the soup was absolutely delish! It's authentic, really owned by some friendly English folk and very welcoming. I don't know how you get a vegetable soup to taste so great… but they manage!

We ordered Eggs Benedict for 2 of of the four guests, pancakes, and a skillet. The food, once it came was excellent, but a party of 2 that arrived well after we were seated, ordered, ate, and finished before we received our breakfasts...Note there were only 10 people in the restaurant. Not sure what the wait was about but I... More

Thanks for the nice review and bringing this information to our attention. Every ticket is submitted with a time on it so we can track how long it takes for our food to reach the dining room floor. Although we strive to do our best for every customer sometimes we fall short of their expectations. The fact that you said... More

Went to the Windsor Tea Room for a friends birthday lunch. I was pleasantly surprised at the menu. Not just cucumber sandwiches and tea. They have beer and wine and very hearty dishes on the menu. I opted for the soup of the day (tomato bisque) which was delicious along with the spinach quiche (also very yummy). Very nice selection... More

I have been to Mt Dora many times and this restaurant never cease to disappoint. Wonderful ambiance, great food, wonderful price and they did not rush you. Once a month, they host a storytelling venue which you should not miss.
