One of our favorite restaurants is Les Chefs de France located in France in Epcot’s World Showcase. It is a table service restaurant, and advanced dining reservations (ADRs) are a good idea – but it is casual and there is enough variety on the menu that even picky eaters and little ones should find something to their liking.
The restaurant itself is beautiful.
We were not lucky enough to get a table by the window, but it didn’t matter. The entire restaurant is light and airy.
On to the food! There is a prix-fixe (fixed price) menu that offers an appetizer (two choices), entree (three choices), and a choice of the daily dessert offerings for $25.99. There is also a kids’ menu for those 9 and under which has two appetizers, three entrees, and two desserts to from which to choose.
We decided to order from the regular menu. My mom elected to start with the Salade Maison (house salad – $6.99), which features mixed greens and the house vinaigrette dressing. She said it was wonderful and the vinaigrette was delicious. I chose the Salade de Chevre Chaud (Baked Goat Cheese Salad – $11.99), which had walnuts, tomatoes, fresh grapes, endive, and mixed salad along with a nice-sized circular piece of warm goat cheese. This salad was my favorite salad of the whole trip. The dressing complemented the salad without overpowering it, and the goat cheese was mouthwatering. Along with the salads we were given a baguette, which was also delicious.
For her entree, my mom decided to have the Quiche Lorraine (Famous Ham and Cheese Quiche – $14.99). She didn’t read the menu fully and was surprised when the quiche came with a mixed salad. She said that if she had realized that she wouldn’t have ordered the salad as an appetizer. Her report on the quiche is that it was “very tasty” and also “probably the best quiche I’ve had since we ate here last,” which was a couple of years ago! (Please excuse the pictures – we were so excited to eat that we forgot to take pictures before we started).
I decided to try the Gratin de Macaroni (Macaroni Baked – $18.99), which is the most incredible version of macaroni and cheese that I’ve come across. It was very rich, though, and I was not able to finish it all – but I sure wanted to.
Even though we were full, we decided that we couldn’t leave without at least sampling something from the dessert menu. We usually split dessert, but since we couldn’t agree on anything we decided to get two and share. I chose the Chocolate Mousse ($8.99). It did not disappoint. It was very smooth, creamy, and chocolatey, and it came with a slice of very light cake.
Mom decided to try the Creme Brulee ($8.99). This was the best creme brulee we had on the trip – it was vanilla-flavored and also very smooth and creamy.
All in all, this was a delightful lunch. The food was fantastic, the atmosphere was lovely, and the service was impeccable. If you haven’t yet tried Les Chefs de France, I highly recommend it.
