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

My husband and I dined at Café de France on Saturday evening July 19 in celebration of our 34th wedding anniversary. It was a very enjoyable experience overall and suited the occasion. The food was excellent, the wait staff attentive and the meal well paced. I have some food intolerances and had to ask some questions and make a special... More

Travel Zoo offered a deal I could not pass and last night brought me to this fine french restaurant about 40 minutes away from where I live. Me and my wife enjoyed escargot, rack of lamb (special du jour) and filet mignon, all cooked to perfection, great service with a smile from a young lady from Seattle and a moderately... More

We just finished the most wonderful meal and some of the best French food we have had outside of France. We sat outside on this beautiful day and enjoyed genuine french onion soup made from scratch, pate my husband loved and then I had delicious scallops with mashed potatoes and lightly cooked spinach followed by creme brulee; my husband had...

My wife and I rarely dine at French Restaurants, so we were pleased when her mother suggested Cafe de Paris for lunch. We passed many busy eateries on our walk to the restaurant. We had a nice window seat and the service was decent. The young waiter would have been more at home in a casual diner, but the owner... More

When we walked in to the restaurant for the first time we could have easily imagined that we were in Europe. The food was exactly as our helpful, pleasant waiter, Gabriel, described. We asked for and appreciated his suggestions. He guided us to an enjoyable wine and an excellent meal. We both decided to try the daily fish special, which... More

Waited 30 minutes for my reservation. Service was ok, but food was cold and bland. The owner walks around and flirts with all the girls. Would not leave our table.

You had already posted your comment on February 14, and said you would not be back...everyone can read our response to that message! We have not seen you since then. Again we have seen the person who bought the gift certificate that you tried to use that day, and he insists that he has no idea of who you are,... More
