Atmosphere of Chefs de France

I was sat in the beautifully decorated sun room next to the window that peered out unto the pedestrians on the Disney inspired French streets.

The atmosphere was like a setting in movie at a quaint Parisian café.

Coming in as someone with limited knowledge of this famous cuisine, my waitress, Christiana, guided me through the menu for both the delectable entrees and the extensive wine list.

My Chefs de France Review

The meal started out with a warm baguette that went extremely well as a dipping instrument with my lobster bisque appetizer.

Lobster Bisque

The consistency of the bisque was lighter than what I’ve previously experienced, but the well-seasoned flavor along with the fluffy sweet chunks of the lobster balance this portion out.

Hurry and try this before it leaves the menu.

Cabernet Sauvignon by Georges Duboeuf

This was all enjoyed while drinking a nice glass of Cabernet Sauvignon.

The red wine was priced on the lower end of the wine spectrum (less than $10 per glass at the time of my solo trip).

However, the taste was not disappointing at all. It was the Chef’s selection which was a straightforward Cabernet for Georges Duboeuf with blackberry notes and a medium body.

The wine was easy to drink and went well with my appetizer and entrée. It also made me feel pretty good afterwards 🙂

Boeuf Bourguignon, Linguine (Beef Short Rib Pasta)

Up next was the star of the show…

…the entrée!

Creamy Braised Beef Short Rib at Chefs de France Disney World

I ordered the Boeuf Bourguignon Linguine AKA the Beef Short Rib Pasta which was braised in Cabernet with pearl onions and mushrooms.

Plus, I was prepared to use my knife aggressively to cut through the meat, but to my surprise the butter knife fell effortlessly through the beef cut which only meant that the tasting portion of the entrée was about to be awesome…

…and it was!

Not only did I barely need my fork for this, the meat was seasoned to perfection with its juices exploding carrying the delicious flavor.

Dessert at Chefs de France

It was now time for the dessert finale. I didn’t step too far outside of the box on this one.

I ordered the chocolate mousse that was topped with whipped cream and a slice of pound cake.

So, I did spice it up, Hipster style with a glass of Grand Marnier.

It was marvelous!

The Grand Marnier with its smooth citrusy taste helped cut the sweetness of the mousse without taking away from its chocolaty flavor.

Ordering the cognac straight was definitely a first and quite sporadic, but I will say it was great decision that topped off the whole dining experience.

Is Chefs de France Worth It?

I say yes! My overall experience at Chefs de France was delightfully relaxing.

I’m not sure if it lives up to any true French cuisine, but the Disney wait staff and chefs truly did a superior job bringing a few aspects of the culture to this terrific bistro.

Get a Doggy Bag

I usually don’t like to carry to-go bags when I’m at the park, but on that evening there was no way I was going to allow my left overs to be trashed after my departure.

My waitress bagged it up and I carried it happily around Epcot with me.

As soon as I got home the smell reminded me of the wonderful experience I’d just enjoyed. I then devoured the remaining portion before I went to bed.

  1. Yum! It has been a few years since we’ve eaten there. The vegetarian lasagna was always light but filling and very tasty. Do they still have a waiter push a covered “cheese” cart around? When they reach a table with kids, the lid comes off & Remy from Ratatouille is on the dish and talks with the kids.

  2. Great review! I am going to Chef de France this April and I am looking forward to try the Steak aux échalottes, frites. However, this is not part of the fix menu and I have found no reviews about it. I wish someone could tell me if it is worth it. I heard the french fries are delicious. That steak with red wine braised shallots seems very good to me but I would like to find a picture of it somewhere.

    • Hi Dominique!

      I’m super excited to hear about your upcoming Disney trip. I haven’t tried the Steak aux échalottes, frites yet, but I will say that the Braised Beef Short Rib was cooked extremely well and it was very tender. Hopefully, the steak is just as good as the short rib.

      Now you have my mouth watering and I will have to put the Steak aux échalottes, frites on my list of things to try next at Epcot 🙂

      I look forward to hearing about your trip,
