Nice setting but small and overpriced menu. Service was awful. We were ignored as two women waiting to be served. We had to keep making requests of our waitress but she kept forgetting us.

They have a very small menu. They wont tell you they are out of most of the plates until you have already have your drinks (which took forever even if the restaurat was no busy AT ALL) Nightmare began when we ordered appetizers and began to find out they mostly have sandwishes. They advertized themselves as french and they even... More

I love the lunches at Cecile's and have gone many times with friends and family. However, the service is only fair and the kitchen is extremely slow. We sat down at noon and were served at 1:15. Our drinks were never refilled. Sad.

6 of us had lunch to celebrate a 75th birthday. The waiter, Mickey, was a delight! He was attentive and entertaining. The food was excellent. We had quiches, sandwiches and a salad. Dessert was wonderful and prepared to order. The bill was quite reasonable for 6 people.

Four of us shopped in Mt. Dora today & went to lunch at Cecile's. They didn't have the soup advertised on their board nor did they have the Onion Soup in the menu. Two of the women had a soup suggested by the waiter and both had to be sent back because they were not hot enough. I had a... More

This is the second time I've eaten here and never again. My thinking is that one bad meal can be forgiven but not two. Both times I've eaten here I found the service exceedingly slow and the one server seemed to be annoyed we were even there. I remembered her from a year ago! Be that as it may, my... More

We were looking for a place to relax, enjoy a glass of wine, and listen to music. Cecile's was the place to be on a beautiful fall afternoon in Mt. Dora. We also had the French onion soup and Baked Brie that were delightful.

Went for lunch today. It was our first time in Mount Dora and spend time walking around looking at different menus because there are so many options. After walking past a few places with a long wait, we came across this french cafe. There were some tables available in the shade so we decided to eat there. We were confused... More

Beautiful outdoor seating and nice wait staff. Meal slow coming out even tho our lunch was at 2:30pm. Both salads had slimy field greens as 25% of salad but we were too hungry to send back. My quiche was great and very hot. Hubby's blue cheese and chicken sandwich had cold/frozen chicken center. :(. Peach dessert crepe was tough. Pretty... More

We enjoyed a well cooked, well presented lunchtime meal in the sunshine. Staff were attentive and nothing was too much trouble.
