Chefs De France, Epcot
Is there a more romantic section in all of Epcot than France? – I’m not sure. I’m on a mission to eat my way through Epcot, and today I’m going to share our perfect date-day at Epcot! This February my husband and I had the opportunity to spend a few hours at Epcot for a romantic lunch at Chefs de France and stroll through the Art Festival.
Chefs de France, Location
Located just over the bridge in the World Showcase, you will find the beautiful country of France. The streets in this section are filled activities, such as; adorable vendors, street performances, a gazebo where you can meet Princess Aurora, and a garden where you can chat about your favorite books with Belle. In the midst of all those things is the lovely Chefs de France Restaurant.
I’ve been intrigued by this restaurant for years because there are windows throughout the entire restaurant, so you will be able to enjoy your meal and still be a part of the experiences happening outside.
Chefs de France, Ambiance
The ambiance of this restaurant was very relaxed, with bright lighting from the windows and soft lighting from the overhead fixtures I felt very comfortable and happy in this restaurant. On the walls, you will find many bottles of wine displayed, and the tables are set with stunning glassware.
This restaurant made me feel, happy.
Chefs de France, Menu
The menu at this restaurant was much of what I’d expect to find at a French restaurant, and since we were on the Disney Dining Plan, we made sure to order a variety of items to share. Everything we ordered was absolutely delicious!
Here is what we ordered:
- Soupe à l’oignon gratinée (French Onion Soup)
Filet de saumon mariné auvin blanc et citron
- Jarret de porc braisé, spaetzels (Pork)
- Assiette de Sorbets du Jour
Meringue aux fruits rouges
The food was absolutely delicious! Since I have a food allergy, I got the opportunity to meet the chef! He was so kind and made sure I was at ease with all my menu choices, and even came after the meal to ask me how everything was. It’s the little extra pixie dust that Disney adds to the experience that gets me every time!
If you follow a vegan, gluten-free or other dietary restriction, I’d recommend looking into this restaurant as the chef was very accommodating and friendly!
Chefs de France, Pricing
Although not on the top tier of dining, it isn’t necessarily a budget-friendly dining location. If you want to experience French food on a budget, you might want to check out Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie (menu) but the food and ambiance at Chef de France are absolutely worth the investment.
If you are on the 2018 dining plan, this meal is only one table service credit!
If you are not on the Disney Dining Plan, the general pricing is as follows:
- Appetizers: $9.00 – $17.00
- Main Course: $18.99 – $35.99
- Dessert: $9.75
Overall thoughts on Chefs de France
I loved this dining experience, I thought it was absolutely perfect for a romantic date or even a family meal. The ambiance of the restaurant really made it friendly for a wide range of experiences, it was definitely one of my favorite dining experiences in all of Epcot.
