Do not forget to have the almond and chocolate croissant, it is amazing, the food is great, the only thing that is not good is the service, I went twice to the restaurant during my stay and both times you had to remind the waiters about things, but the food made it worth it. A must go to place for... More

I saw a lot of good reviews of the restaurant. We went there for breakfast on a late Monday morning. I ordered countryside omelet that came with a hot Americano cafe and orange juice. Since it's hot and humid, I wanted ice americano cafe instead. The waiter charged extra $12 pesos for the ice and he added another ice coffee... More

But the fact that the place is not smoke free is disgusting. That to me, means they care nothing for the client. If people want to smoke, fine... Up to them, but why would they "share" their venom with everybody!?? And why would the restaurant allow this to happen!??? SO upsetting and disgusting to eat a contaminated breakfast due to... More

Hi, thank you for letting us know how was your experience at Chez Céline. It's important for us to know where we have room for improvement. I don't know when you visited us, but we do have a non-smoking area on the terrasse since few months now. I wonder why the hostess didn't propose you to have a table on... More

The smell of bread was what made us stop, we could not decide what to buy, so we bought a little of everything and for that night a tiramisu with a latte. The staff was really nice and the bread and latte were really delicious. Defintely, we would go again.

Excellent food... We came on a Sunday morning. We're told it would be a 20 minute wait. After waiting that long we asked how much longer- they kept saying 5 -10 more minutes...by now we waiting so long we just stayed- under up waiting over 50 minutes. Food was fresh and excellent... Although not sure worth such a long wait.

Been to PDC, and to Chez Celine, a number of times. On our recent trip it seemed as is the quality of the products and service has gone down. Not sure what to attribute this to. Perhaps freshness of the ingredients?! Fingers crossed this is a bump in the road for what is otherwise a nice place to enjoy a... More

We were staying in a lovely apartment near Mamita's Beach Club, which was five minutes from this lovely bakery. Everything is delicious! We had several croissants to go, for breakfast, as well as many pastries. Love it!

Lovely place to have breakfast, wonderful home made boursin cheese,very nice service, and fantastic for french pastries, wonderful french brad with real salted butter, coffee not so great but everything else makes up for it, always has a line of people so you may have to wait in line.

I tried to have a sit-down meal here but when I got there it was a zoo. I could only order something to go, and the coffee and the pastry were both very good. But service was non-existent really as the servers are literally trying to keep it all together. lol.. I will probably try an early morning excursion next... More
