8 Things You’ll Love About Chefs de France at Walt Disney World

Walking around Epcot can sure work up an appetite. There’s something absolutely wonderful about walking into a special dining experience in the middle or end of a long Park day to relax and indulge. That’s what Chefs de France is for. Here are 8 things we think you’ll love about this unique restaurant. Bon appetite!


1. Seasonal Menu

The danger of any great restaurant is getting into a rut. Everyone has their favorites, and they stick to that. That’s not the case at Chefs de France! This incredible restaurant has seasonal menus, which means they switch things up from time to time depending on which foods are in season. This keeps things fresh and interesting!

2. The Wine

France is known for its wine. I mean, come on, it’s France for crying out loud! So brilliant and extensive, the wine list isn’t even on Disney’s website! All of Chefs de France’s wines are imported from the home country itself. This is the perfect opportunity to try wine pairings with one of the fabulous seasonal (or staple) entrées.

3. The Cheese

Much like the wine, French cheese is a must. And similarly to the wine, all of this cheese is imported too! From the plateau de fromages de France (cheese board), to the salade de chèvre chaud (baked goat cheese salad), to the fabulous gratin de macaroni (mac and Gruyere cheese), they’ve got cheese covered and it is oh so good.

4. The Desserts

Can’t leave a French meal without an outstanding dessert. Chefs de France has some pretty unbelievable options and I can’t pronounce a single one. But I do happen to know that the crème brûlée is famous and to die for. However, as a chocolate person myself, I’d go for the gateau au chocolat – chocolate cake with chocolate mouse, chocolate sauce and mint chocolate ice cream. Yes.

5. The Sights

While you indulge in a feast for your taste buds, you also get to soak up amazing sights! I love all of the windows in Chefs de France. Hardly any of the restaurant is walled in, and the section that is has mirrors covering the walls. Thanks to the windows, you get fantastic views of the French Pavilion while you eat, like the fountains or topiaries or storefronts!

6. Décor

I love Chefs de France because it truly makes you feel like you’re dining in a French brasserie. The views of the France Pavilion certainly help, but inside is elegant yet casual. Between its mosaic flooring, cushioned red booths, high chandeliers, and murals, you feel like you’re there. The murals are special, too, because they’re styled after the French post-impressionists!

7. Unique Dining, Convenient Timing

Here comes the more practical side of why you’ll love Chefs de France… Thanks to their all afternoon and evening hours, you can enjoy this restaurant whenever is most convenient for your party! They have separate lunch and dinner menus, but they’re mostly the same meals. This means you can have a unique dining experience whenever you please!

8. Dining Plan

Like most Disney restaurants now, particularly ones within a park, Chefs de France accepts the Disney Dining and Deluxe Plans! Once again, this makes unique dining a little bit easier. Chefs de France also accepts the Tables in Wonderland discount, but for lunch only. Better make your reservation!

About Molly Elias

Molly grew up a Disney kid. When her grandparents decided to migrate down to Florida, she was blessed with the chance to visit the Parks often. Her favorite park is Hollywood Studios simply for the feeling that it brings. She and her family love to try out different restaurants around the property (and bring recipes home!). They have also become Disney Cruise Line experts over years and like to refer to the Disney Magic as “their ship.” Molly and her family have made amazing, lasting friendships and memories through Disney, gifts they will always be thankful for. When not at Disney or at sea, Molly can be found at school, enjoying every minute of college, or trying to find a niche in the writing field.
