Walt Disney World: A Girl’s Lunch at Chefs de France in Epcot

Earlier this year, I had the pleasure of visiting Walt Disney World for the Disney Social Media Moms conference. During a break from the event, I took advantage of the time sans kids and enjoyed a lunch with my friend Haley (who was also celebrating her birthday!) at Les Chefs de France in the French section of the World Showcase in Epcot. If you are unfamiliar, Chefs de France is a recreation of a Parisian brasserie and serves both lunch and dinner.

This was my first time experiencing Chefs de France and French food in general, so I didn’t know what to expect or if I would even enjoy French food. One walk into this authentic French restaurant and I instantly fell in love with its charm and the scents of bread, coffee and cheese.

I wanted to try a bit of everything, so I ordered the Prix Fixe 3 Courses Menu for lunch, which was $23.99 and included a choice of soup, entree and dessert. I couldn’t stop there, though. Since we WERE in France, we had to also order the cheese plate, or “Assiette de fromages de France”, and a cocktail or two. Below is a recap of our delicious lunch.

Have you ever eaten at Chefs de France?

DISCLOSURE – I received park tickets, meals and a reduced room rate with the purchase of a Disney Social Media Moms conference ticket, however, this meal was paid for by me. I also received various Walt Disney World swag and entertainment while at the conference. Thoughts are my own. Read Mom Spark’s full disclosure here.

    My wife and I went there last week to celebrate my wife’s birthday. (Trip to Disney World for a media event. Yay! Trip to Disney World for a media event without kids and celebrating my wife’s birthday? YAAAAYYYYY!!!!)

    We loved the food and the ambiance. My wife had trouble with the french onion soup merely because the bread was so thick and the cheese so gooey. Not a bad problem to have. ;-) Then she had the broiled salmon and I had the eggplant-zucchini lasagna. Both exceptional. Finally, we had the strawberry cake and sorbet for dessert. (My wife let it slip that it was her birthday so they brought it out singing Happy Birthday in French.)

    I’d say that my only disappointment with the restaurant was that I didn’t get an up close view of Remy. We saw him as we were leaving, but I couldn’t push my way in front of the people to take a photo. I wanted to, but that would have been rude.

      I’m so glad you were able to share some dishes that I haven’t tried yet! We were lucky enough to have Remy visit us, but I think it’s a hit or miss there. Thanks so much for sharing your experience.

    Love, love eating in the French Pavilion. Our fave is the Rose & Crown, but all of those places are can’t lose propositions.

      I have eaten at the Rose & Crown many, many times. One of my favorites, too!
