Les Chefs de France Review

What some consider the best restaurant at Disney was created by three of France's most famous chefs: Paul Bocuse, Gaston Lenôtre, and Roger Vergé. Classic escargots, a good starter, are prepared in a casserole with garlic butter; you might follow up with roasted breast and leg of duck confit, or grilled beef tenderloin with green pepper sauce. Make sure you finish with profiteroles drizzled with chocolate sauce. The three-course prix-fixe menu is a great value. An Audio-Animatronics Remy, from the movie Ratatouille, makes the rounds atop a roving chef's cart.

    Les Chefs de France Review

    This restaurant was talked up a lot by my friend, so I thought, hey, it'll be great. Wrong! Of course the prices are super inflated, but way worse than I thought. The three course meals for $37 sounds like a good deal, but beware.

    I ordered onion soup for a starter, the duck as main course, and apple crepe as dessert. My friend chose the 3-course way and got the onion soup, short-ribs, and chocolate puff pastry. The best part of the meal was my glass of wine (normal price for such a restaurant).

    Onion soup was great! I will say that if I ever go back, I would only order the soup. The duck was ok - nothing spectacular. The side dishes were something less than I would make at home. Green beans that were cooked in butter (my frozen veggies I'm eating for lunch right now are FAR superior to that side dish) and the sweet potato was something I couldn't even eat. I tasted my friend's short-ribs, and I found it to be exactly like what I had made the week prior in my slow-cooker.

    Dessert was VERY disappointing. You think of French dinning, and dessert seems to be something that will put all others to shame. Not at this place. My crepe was good, but not worth the price. I'd rather have gone back to Ghirardelli’s ice cream parlor.

    For a $60 meal, I was extremely saddened by the quality of food. Service was normal and atmosphere ok. It was a loud restaurant with stereotypical decorations. I suppose that's most of Disney though.

    All-in-all, there are much better places to eat at Disney that may cost the same, but you get better food. Skip the fancy meals at Disney, and save the money for a real trip to Europe.

    Les Chefs de France Review

    We ate here our first evening at Disney World. We thought we were lucky to get a table without reserving months in advance for the restaurant that Fodors considers perhaps the best at Disney World.
    In fact, this was the worst meal, by far, of our week-long visit. Although our server warned us the plates were very hot (they were), the food was curiously cool. The food tasted like ithad been prepared two days prior and microwaved for a few seconds. My duck was almost tasteless, the salmon was not fresh tasting, and the flour roux for the fancy macaroni and cheese was lumpy and tasted as though it had not been cooked.
    The sides were no better. My string beans were hard and flavorless, while my wife described her ratatouille as "disgusting".

    The next night we ate at Boma, located in the Animal Kingdom lodge. By contrast, the food was excellent, especially considering it is served buffet style. It was also our least expensive restaurant meal.
