Cecilia is an ambitious restaurant : creative, fine dishes, plates made by the chef in front of you, all things we like. Staff is friendly and professional. Unfortunately, we were disappointed by the very small size of the dishes, even for a fine dining meal...More

Great restaurant. Amazing food. Loved watching the chef spend so much care preparing each dish. Waiting staff were great and recommended a good wine given our desired preferences. Would go again

I love good food and this restaurant is a must-go for all fine dining fans. Price-quality one of the best restaurants. It's small, so make a reservation! The menu often change, but every time it was amazing. Mostly fish/sea food. Only small "negative" detail is...More
