Nice place to sit outside and listen to music.

They serve a light fare and a decent selection of wine. Their hours of operation are unpredictable though.

Waiter announced restaurant was out of bacon at 1pm on a Saturday, how does that happen? Orders sent to the table and one order was wrong. Waited 10 minutes for meal to arrive, luckily my companions were eating a salad a cheese plate so their food did not get cold. Waiter explained the mix up was due to his poor... More

We have lunch here often. It is a pleasant place to sit outside and listen to the music while watching the people walk by. The crepes are very good as is the chicken brie salad (my favorite). The French onion soup is excellent They can be slow at times depending on the kitchen, but that is not an issue for... More

this is a charming indoor and outdoor patio restaurant for a light meal and glass of wine. the french onion soup is the real deal and crepes add a wonderful compliment and salads are always fresh. major problem is the ownership does not seem to worry about making a lot of money because it is hard to catch the restaurant...

Being in Mt. Dora , I wanted to try this place, I ordered the peach crepe and it was simply delicious, the waiter was so attentive, and we enjoyed the live music , the environment was really good. I spent a wonderful time there.

Cecile's French Corner's ambiance, the comfortable outdoor patio, the music, and the wait staff make for such a wonderful setting to gather with friends. We do it every year as a Christmas tradition. However the fruit & cheese platter paired with a good wine is why we go there as often as we can. We just love this place.

I was in Mt. Dora waiting for our Bichon Friese to get finished at the grooming parlor when I had a hankering for some.delicious French Onion soup. I knew Cecile's usually has it on the menu, so I stopped by for some. Because it was 85 degrees here in central Florida, I decided to dine outside. I sipped iced tea... More

This was our first visit to Mount Dora. We were pleasantly surprised at what a pretty and quaint town it was, filled with specialty shops, cafes, and restaurants all decorated for Christmas. Our dogs were greeted with fresh bowls of water as our very delightful waitress handed us our menus. It was a Sunday and quite busy and we were... More

I love french food, and I love savory crepes, so this was a must for one meal during a long weekend in Mount Dora. Our group of four women enjoyed lunch after a morning of exploring the town. The location was ideal and the outdoor patio allowed for people-watching. As for the meals - they used fresh ingredients, and the... More

Wish there could be a rating breakdown for food and service separately because the experiences were polar opposites. Five of us got there 10 minutes after opening and watched the older waiter bring out salt and pepper shakes to each table (a set at a time) for the next 10 minutes without our presence being acknowledged. We were the only... More
