Well, eating here was an experience. What should have been maybe an hour's brunch turned into almost two hours. The server (Jacque - who was very pleasant) told us they were having a problem with the cooking equipment - it wasn't heating properly. So we waited and waited and waited. BUT once we finally were served our meals, they all... More

Came for lunch on a quiet day in Mt. Dora do I was by myself. Beautiful little restaurant. Outside patio seating is very nice. Like being in a French villa. I ordered ham and brie sandwich but their menu was varied and all of it sounded yummy. Their Dijon Vinegrette Dressing is tangy but good. I put some dressing on... More

Went with my husband last Friday at 3:45pm after lake and canal trip on Catermarans but restaurant was closed. Went on to Pisces instead which wasn't really what we were looking for. Patio at Cecile's, however, looked great place and will try again (call ahead) next time in Mount Dora.

Really need to work on the service. Food was ok but alot of confusion with servers. I don't think it is authentic French food as it is advertised. We had salads with brie which were the same type of salads you can get anywhere.

Having eaten at French bistros and little cafe's, I would say this is pretty much average. It is more like a normal lunch cafe with a French twist. Add crepes to the menu and boom, French, right? LOL We ate outside, the shaded atmosphere was perfect on a humid hot afternoon. We waited a while for our salads, like 20... More

Sat on the patio under a shade tree sipping on wine, listening to music and having a spot of lunch. What a wonderful afternoon. Our waitress was very attentive. The food superb. Mine a chicken sandwich on a baguette with a side salad with honey mustard dressing. My wife salad with the same dressing and broccoli, cheese quiche.

There is nothing like sitting out under the big oak tree in front of the restaurant, and enjoying the cool breeze that sifts through your hair. A glance of the lake front makes the lunch all that more tasty. But what really impressed me about the meal was that presentation of the dessert crepe. It looked so good, I almost... More

We were looking for a place to have Sunday breakfast. Cecile's was open, and from the exterior looked very pleasant. It was a little chilly to sit outside, so we ventured in, at 9:30 the only customers in the place. My wife and I both ordered omelets, she regular coffee, and I a cafe mocha. No one (only the cook...

I hadn't had french in a long time so Mount Dora seemed the perfect place to have it again. Location was nice. Staff nice. Food was very good. Sitting outside enjoying the meal just added to the nice experience. Weekends are busy.

Absolutely horrible experience. I don't even know where to begin. I went there today for lunch with my husband and my mother. Between the terrible service and the fake French food it was easily the worst dining experience of my life. When I arrived, I asked for a croissant. My server told me that they were baking the next batch... More
