I'm not sure it's worth modifying, but this English sounds a little stilted.

Just use the "Do you like... " version.

The Does... please you... " are always tilted in English, and they are in the database to make us understand the Latin construction of "placet". (and it really helps). That's all.

They also accept "Is X pleasing to you".
