thought we would try this as there are new owners, now called the lake house. My open chicken Caesar salad was ok but not much chicken, really thin and 3 pieces, poached egg wasn't runny, was ruined by the smell from partners fish and chips, fish was tough and smelt, possibly been cooked earlier and then deep fried to reheat....

I have stopped in for a quick coffee and a lite bite on the weekend when in the park and we also had a special occasion of a 90th birthday recently which we chose Cafe Cecille for. They did an amazing job with the menu choices and the amount of food was great, we had some local produce of some... More

This was a repeat visit by our car club having had an excellent visit here about 18 months ago. We returned last weekend with 19 in our group. The staff were very friendly from the moment I made the booking 10 days earlier. I even received a phone call half an hour before we arrived asking would we like wine... More

We visited on 1st March for afternoon refreshments. The staff member behind the counter who took our order was unfriendly. Our drinks arrived as ordered, but they forgot our food. It never arrived even tho the place was not busy and when I asked for my money back for what we never received, no apology was given and my cash... More

We've been to Cecile twice now and were very happy on both occasions. On a sunny weekend, there's not much to beat the eggs bene or mushrooms, matched with a nice glass of Wairarapa wine. Sitting outside watching passers-by or pedal boats on the lake is magic. The staff are invariably friendly and efficient.

Excellent coffee followed by excellent dips with fresh bread. Friendly helpful staff. I totally don't agree with the person who left the most negative comment. Glad I can read between the lines and can easily weed out moaners.

My parents and i came here for lunch one Sunday. It was quite busy (6 tables of people). We sat down and were told someone would come to take our order. We did not have menus so we had to ask for them but after waiting 10 minutes we eventually got up and had to get them ourselves! We waited... More

Having had a very average dinner earlier - I was suitably impressed with lunch. Good choice, friendly and efficient service. Yes I will come back as th elocation has to be one of the best.

This has to be the best locale for any eatery in the district. the food is great and varied. Liver and bacon was creamy and tender and went well with the local Paddy Borthwick Rose. The Panna cotta was all wobbly as it should be . Sublime .
