A small piece of France

We got there and did not know they closed at 5pm. We were warmly welcomed. Ordered a cheese tray which was more than enough for 2 people and escargots in puff pastry. Excellent food. Wine was good and not expensive.

I belong to The Plant Propagation Guild of The Garden Club at Palm Coast. After a workshop in Sandford, we took lunch in Mount Dora at Cecile's. What a heavenly surprise! The food was gourmet. For such delectable treats such as lobster bisque and escargots, the cost was very reasonable. All 17 of us enjoyed the fine food and service.... More

Lovely outdoor arrangement for those who like outdoor patio dining. Inside is quite small. The food is excellent and fairly priced. Sometimes the staff is a bit slow but seldom.

Cecile's French Corner is a wonderful spot to dine al fresco on their tropical, landscaped patio in the heart of downtown Mount Dora. When you want a dining experience distinctly unique from the chain restaurants, downtown Mount Dora is the place. You can find almost any cuisine you want, from German to Cuban, but Cecile's is the best choice for... More

Lovely little bistro type restaurant. Excellent food and service. Really friendly service. Reasonably priced and it seemed everything freshly cooked to order. Worth waiting a few extra minutes for.

We stopped here for lunch & were not disappointed. The crepes were exceptional, as were the sandwiches. Sitting outside with a nice lake breeze and glass of wine was very relaxing.
