Les Chefs de France
Food Type: French
Dining Plan: 1 Table Service
Cost: Lunch appetizers are $7-$14 and entrées are $14-$24. Desserts come in at $9 each. There is a three course fixed price menu for $24. Dinner appetizers are $7-$15 and entrées are $19-$35. There is also a three course fixed price menu for $40.
Setting: One floor beneath Le Bistro is this elegantly themed French “Brasserie.” The atmosphere is relaxed and more casual than Le Bistro upstairs.
Advantages: You can order the fixed price menu on the Dining Plan, which includes an appetizer, entrée, and dessert. Chef Remy (of Ratatouille fame) makes appearances Monday – Saturday beginning at 12:30pm 1:40pm, 2:50pm, and 5:20pm. The relaxed atmosphere and lower prices are more appealing to families compared to upstairs Bistro de Paris. The fixed price lunch menu offers a nice variety of food at a reasonable price. Hot baguettes are served throughout the meal and the desserts are wonderful.
Disadvantages: The tables at Les Chefs are right on top of each other and it gets noisy and crowded. The children’s menu leaves something to be desired. Service is usually slow (French).
Value: The $24 fixed price lunch is a good value out of pocket. On the Dining Plan, the $40 fixed price dinner is also very good. With entrees for both meals as “cheap” as $14 – $20, you can get out of Les Chefs for less money than most other Disney restaurants.
Reputation: Chefs de France is a solid table service option. Lunch is moderately priced and dinner on the Dining Plan is a good value. The restaurant is themed well and the food is usually good. Seeing Remy at lunch is an added bonus. If you’re dining in the evening, try to get a table near the window to view the fireworks during illuminations, though the view isn’t great.
