Cafe de France has long been one of our favorite spots. The food is authentic French prepared with great care. Saturday, I had the scallops and risotto. I don't know what it is, but their scallops have always been extraordinary - and the risotto was creamy, flavorful and just the right texture.

We started with the daily pate - which was divine. Perfect texture and composition.

One of our dinner mates had the lamb chops - which were tender, flavorful and juicy.

Others ate the fish entrees, one Salmon, one Atlantic Cod - both were perfectly prepared and accompanied by well prepped veggies.

The small restaurant has a sweet and personal atmosphere. The wait staff is knowledgeable and the Owner are always there!

Spoil yourself and give it a try!.

Lovely Valentine's Day dining experience. Perfect setting and spot on service. The small kitchen was a little overwhelmed that night with loads of Valentine's Day guests, so our entrees took longer than expected but the owner came by to apologize and offered to comp us a drink. The food was amazing and worth the wait. Come here for ambience and authentic, well prepared French cuisine. We will return.

We loved the restaurant so much , we ate there twice in one week. The roasted duckling was outstanding. The coq au vin and the braised lamb shank were divine.

One of the most impressive dining experiences in all of Central Florida. The chef is highly skilled and each dish is "handcrafted" to ensure quality and taste are perfect. The owner and his wife (chef) should be very proud of this dining establishment. Our party recommends the escargots, mussels, daily fish special and the rack of lamb. Don't miss the crème brulee. A full bar with an excellent wine list from many parts of the world accentuate the feeling of being in a hidden bistro in Paris.

Delicious little treat in Winter Park during a visit to Rollins College. Lovely service and excellent food equaled an excellent night overall.

My friend and I ate lunch at an outdoor table of Café de France. We both had absolutely wonderful Cosmopolitans. Refreshingly delicious. I ordered the onion soup as a starter and it was quite good...the cheese was bubbly with a very slight crust and the soup had a good consistency. My friend ordered the scallops with risotto and she said they were delicious, tender and moist. (I would have preferred a darker or more robust sear.) I ordered the mussels and frites and thoroughly enjoyed the dish. We split a tarte tatin that was yummy. Really enjoyed the food and I'd definitely return and recommend the restaurant. Bon appetit!

Mixed bag. 2 guests had the same seafood dish and one was very good and one was gritty. The other 2 gusests had lamb and again, the lamb special was very good while the lamb from the menu had little seasoning/taste which required a good dose of salt and pepper. Service was excellent. The restaurant was very quiet but it may have been due to the fact there were only 2 other tables occupied by 2 people. This was our first time back in many years and we probably will give it another try.
