I've eaten at Cecile's many times over the years as I live in the Mount Dora area and one of the things I like best is their outdoor seating area which is very quaint and relaxing. They've got a great menu--the lobster bisque is always a great choice. The service is hit and miss at times but the food is... More

This is the 2nd time we have been here. The food is very good and does meet the name on cuisine. Some outstanding cheeses and breads to match.

I find that the service is so bad, I'll not try it again. I've been there 4-5 times and went from bad to worse. Food is OK if you can ever get it. Ruins the whole meal just waiting from a rude waiter.

The Crepe Normandy or cheese & fruit plate, or even a mousse chocolat are just right. Sometimes there is even a glimpse of Lake Dora just down the hill. This is part of the recent renovations of Mount Dora's 4th Avenue area. In fact the huge Main Street CHRISTMAS Tree has been moved to the middle of the pedestrian only... More

The food was excellent and the service was exceptable and very entertaining. We had the fruit and cheese plate and the Normandy quiche. Both were very good and enjoyable. Some here have complained about the service but I think it depends on your attitude. We were on vacation and in no hurry. We were given everything we asked for in... More

Described as authentic French Cafe. Hmmmm the only authentic bit is the name! The food was adequate but certainly not even resembling French except the name. Staff were ok, food was ok, service was ok. That's about it. All ok but nothing to get excited about. We discovered better alternatives afterwards.

We asked a few business owners about restaurants, 3-3 suggested Cecile's, we enjoyed a chicken salad & a nice steak very well cooked. The server was very nice, the live music was nice and the restaurant is located w/I 2 minutes of the lake. The only thing that wasn't up to par was the croissant, given this was a French... More

Arts and Craft fest. People waiting in line for an hour. The lady who waited on us was a wonderful server, her daughter was the one serving beer and wine in the court yard. The crepe my wife had was great, very tasty (took 45 more minutes to get our food) my food way overcooked but they made it good... More
