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

French onion soup was spectacular with their Lobster Bisque a close second. We also had a light cheese plate with three cheeses and some fresh fruit. It was excellent.

Last year we had a wonderful lunch at Cecile's so when in Mount Dora this visit we stopped for lunch. It was not as pleasant as last time. The table(s) were not clean and found was only so so. Maybe a bad day but even the service was only average. The menu is very good, I hope others get there... More

Upon our waitress's arrival, she proceeded to tell us that the restaurant was out of multiple cheeses and that the service was short staffed. So, we decided to stay and try a sandwich that did not include the "out of cheese flavor list." We proceeded to wait another 15 minutes with not even a drink order placed. Said waitress made...

My guest and I ate here while waiting for family members to finish their segway tour of the area. This little place was packed with people at 2 in the afternoon! In true French style, Cecile's is more rustic in it's decor and cooking style than some people assume when they think of French cuisine. It was over 30 minutes... More

The outdoor seating area is getting a little tired and worn but the food is still wonderful. The planters need some new healthy plants and the chair cushions need replacing but the outdoor tables under the big spreading tree is a wonderful spot to enjoy a glass of wine, a delicious lunch and a little people watching. The plentiful cheese... More

So happy we stumbled upon Ceciles. Best quiche I've ever had. It was accompanied by a delicious generous portion salad. Located by the park. Sat outside and enjoyed the fresh air. Very pleasant, attentive server.
