Very enjoyable evening

We were headed to another local restaurant but it was standing room only. Having passed by Cecile's on other occasions we decided to give it a try. The entertainment as we approached was also attracting us. We were not disappointed. Ordered a bottle of house wine and the cheese and fruit... read more

No whipped cream that day! Apparently no one was able to drive to the nearest store for some! The fresh crepes had to be cut with a knife- maybe they were fresh a few days before we arrived. The other table had to change their order 3 times- why? They were out of all sorts of things! The waitress tried... More

It was a rainy day and when we first stepped in I knew I would love it. It is nice and warm and inviting and almost felt like I was in Quebec. Tried the tomato bisque soup, side salad, smoked salmon with chives and cream cheese on a baguette, side salad and chicken sandwich, prosciutto with cheddar cheese and lettuce... More

We were a group of 10 and they had a nice outside table under a nice tree for us. The service was good and reasonably fast. Some of us had salads and others had crepes of different varieties. My Brittany Crepe was large, but very average. The best part of the offering was a generous salad with good dressing. The... More

We had lunch here after having fun in active, thriving Mt. Dora. The baguettes were delicious, the French onion soup was great. The salad and their classic vinegarette dressing was wonderful. We enjoyed this restaurant very much. We eat bistro food and classic, high-end French in Boca Raton, Florida all the time. This place was great. We sat outside and... More

Visiting the Mt Dora area, we were delighted to find the French Cafe. My husband and I both the lobster bisque and Normandy quiche. We know the quiche was already prepared as the waiter came to inform us that there was only one portion of Normandy quiche left, so I accepted to change my order to a different quiche. After...

We waited 40 minutes for our lunch. Staff apologetic but gave no reason. Every table in same situation. Avoid unless you know this problem is sorted.

service was nasty bunch of young kids never trained...the outside bar guy was the worst and the food was bad...I've eaten much better French food. Asked where the restroom was and was told they had none. The worst food ever.

We sat down for a late lunch on a busy day. We were warned that the kitchen was behind and food would be slow but we were in no rush so we stayed. After about 45 minutes we became aware that the tables in the other sections of the restaurant were being served food, while our section was all waiting... More

We visited Cecile's for the first time last Sunday, arriving around 11:00. We've eaten before at Pisces Rising next door, which is also good, but it was already packed. Since we wanted something a little quieter this trip, we stopped at Cecile's and had several tables for the two of us to choose from. The day was perfect for sitting... More
