Authentic French cuisine

Simple clean build out with authentic French cuisine, reminded us of a small locally owned northern French restaurant. The lunch special crepe with pork belly and a reduction sauce was more than a crepe, it was a meal. I could tell because my dear wife is not usually that generous in sharing. My... read more

I work in a fine dining restaurant in orlando, so it is safe to say i had high expectations especially for a valentines dinner for two. We had a reservation and when we walked in, were not greeted for about five minutes. When we were seated, we waited 20 minutes with no greeting, or water while other tables who were... More

We are sincerely sorry for what happened! It was a very busy night, and obviously there was a lack of coordination among the staff! After 30 years, you would think that we would have it down perfect, but it is obvious that there are still issues that arise and need to be dealt with on a regular basis! We are... More

I wandered into this little gem in Winter Park because it looked so cozy. Service was outstanding. The menu was full of very special sounding dishes but I was drawn to the French onion soup. Outstanding! So good I drove back from Orlando the next night to have it again. The atmosphere is wonderful, dim and candle-lit, French music, just... More

We finally tried this restaraunt and were so pleased. The atmosphere, especially outside, is perfect - outside or within reminds you of a Parisian cafe. Service was excellent and the menu good. My wife had a grilled cheese sandwich - perfectly prepared and very interesting. I had Coq Au Vin (chicken with vegitables) - excellent. The bread was fresh and... More

We came back for the duck confit and were not disappointed. We were greeted by Mat who lived up to his reputation as "Server Extraordinaire" by making sure everything was perfect. We started with a bottle of Merlot from Bordeaux which was good for the price. We followed it with bowls of rich and heavily cheesed onion soup. One of... More

For a good meal in a nice casual environment, "Café de France" fit the bill. Food was great and service plus overall environment were acceptable.

We love sitting outside and drinking in Winter Park's lovely atmosphere with a nice glass of wine. Try the crepes, you won't be disappointed. Service lacks somewhat, but if you're sitting outside, that is somewhat expected, especially if your server has to take care of tables inside the restaurant as well.

I wouldn't say this is my favorite restaurant by any means. It was good, the service was good...nothing necessarily extraordinary to mention, but also nothing bad. I enjoyed the french decor, and it's right next to the macaroon shop, which is fun! Try it out!

I decided to write a review after visiting this place a couple of times. It definitely helps to know the consistency is the same every time. Location: Being on park avenue is a great location. You can park at train station and its an easy 5 minute stroll to the restaurant. The decor is nice and it feels very open... More

A friend and I ate here on a Travelzoo deal. She adored her salmon. I thought my duck was okay. We liked the gravlax appetizer but thought the portion was skimpy. Ordered a bottle of the least expensive pinot noir and it was okay but not great. My sense was this was a great deal given the Travelzoo price, but... More
