Really nice family dinner here. We had Rib Eye, Lamb Chops, Scallops, Escargot, all very nicely done. Excellent service, food properly seasoned has the vibe of a nice family restaurant in a row house storefront type space...all great.

Good food, good service.
The availability of an outside table was important to us.
Open table should give option to book outside table.

Cafe de France has passed the test of time! This is very hard to achieve in the restaurant business and they do simply by creating great cuisine, good service and relaxing ambiance! You can actually have a good conversation without raising your voice! Loved it, will visit soon and spread the word to friends!

We had reservations and it was an anniversary but the gentleman who seated us (owner?) just was not pleasant
Don’t like to have the courses come out so fast just because you gave them your whole order
I’ve had better experiences in other winter park French restaurants

Party of three. Seated on time...and we were on time. Immediate attention and introduction to our server. Pleasant and efficient. Fabulous menu. One guest said he could order "anything on the menu and be happy", Starters were excellent. Three entrees were perfect. Mixed drinks were just right....and wine selections were abundant. We were too full for desserts, which was disappointing because they sounded delicious.

Delicious food and great homey atmosphere, definitely a must try!!! My Husband and I went for a casual date, and we absolutely loved the place, we ordered the steak tartare with quail egg and it was indescribable, soooo much flavor, we also had the escargot (delicious), for our entree I had the duck and he had the catch of the day, which was the black bass with a citrus risotto.....mouthwatering, and finally for dessert classic tarte tatin to end a perfect meal. The Staff was super friendly and very helpful, you feel like you're part of the family. If you're in the area do yourself a favor and try it.

Don’t let the name fool you; this is not a French restaurant. Food was ok, not bad but just ok. The servers were attentive but the owner is annoying. You literally have to beg for bread and when you ask for it, you get a snarky remark that you only get one piece of bread. With some many good restaurants in Orlando, we will go elsewhere next time.

I was a little disappointed that we were not seated outdoors as requested weeks in advance.
We are nervous about dining in during COVID as we are considered at risk.

We were promptly seated and greeted by our waitress. She explained the menu with us and told us about the evenings specials. We had the escargots, simply delicious. We also had the beef bourginon. Also very tasty. I would recommend this restaurant.

One waitress was handling 15 tables both inside and outside. Her only explanation was that they were not expecting this many people. On a Saturday in WP? The food took a long time, but was good. Chicken gallete was recommended but not very tasty. The crepe was very flat and tasted uncooked. The duck was good but tiny. Looked more like a quarter of a quail. This was our first time here but we won't be back. Very expensive for what you get.

Went for lunch. We each had a sandwich, my wife the croque monsieur and I had the lamb. Both were excellent. In particular, the lamb was cooked perfectly, tender and juicy. Wine and cocktails were also good. Will go back next time we’re in town. Thanks for a great linch
