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

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...
