Bistrot Chez Rémy

One of my absolute favourite things that we did in Disneyland Paris, was dine at Bistrot Chez Rémy and when you plan your trip you must promise me you’ll go!

Bistrot Chez Rémy

The section where Rémy’s is located was a totally new area for us, it was only beginning to be built the last time we’d visited DLP. Top tip, do the ride BEFORE you eat – tis a little spinny!

First things first, book in advance! I rang two months before our trip to book a table and they only had a few reservations left per day! You simply will not get a table otherwise and we were there off-peak – can you imagine if you were looking for a table during the Summer months when it’s at its busiest?!

Anyway, our sitting was for 5pm (the latest time available to begin your meal). We arrived in plenty of time and had a little look around the small reception area

It’s a good idea to pop in a few mins early to have a look at all of Rémy’s memorabilia and accolades – there are quite a few!

In a flash, it was time for us to be brought through to the restaurant itself. Instantly you’re the size of Rémy, the chairs are made from Champagne tops, the tables are jam jar lids with umbrellas – cocktail paper umbrellas to be exact!

Other tables are made from sardine lids

and booths are separated by large dinner plates

But my favourite of all was the colander, adorned with fairy lights to make the most spectacularly unique chandelier

One last thing before we dive into the food, you must remember to get a snap with Auguste Gusteau…well, his book anyway, whilst perched atop a champagne cork no less!

Bistrot Chez Rémy

Now, the food – literally wow. It was bliss, but in all fairness, any meal that starts with fresh, warm, knock-me-down-with-a-feather-good French bread, is always a winner in my book!

Our drinks arrived with a flourish by our wonderfully attentive French waiter who gave us the menus and told us to “try everything because this is France and everything is good”

Bistrot Chez Rémy

He didn’t have to tell us twice! We decided to go for two different menus so we would get six different dishes to share and thereby getting to try – almost – everything. Himself went for the “Emile Menu” and I went for “Menu Gusteau“.

For starters, I had Duck Foie Gras, violet fig jam and savoury brioche. Not much to look at on the plate, but nom, actually NOM, we both thoroughly enjoyed it and I particularly loved the figgy jam – omnom!

Bistrot Chez Rémy

Himself’s starter was Mixed Leaf Salad with cheese, artichoke heart, sun-dried tomatoes and grated beetroot, beautifully presented and really tasty

Bistrot Chez Rémy

For mains, Himself was brought Grilled Steak, ratatouille and french fries, there was a selection of sauces on offer and he chose to try the Meaux Mustard and Tarragon (drool!)

Bistrot Chez Rémy

As for me, I was brought Beef Fillet, premium ratatouille and gratin potatoes with Brie cheese

Himself’s ratatouille came in a petite little bowl…where as my premium ratatouille, arrived like the Queen of bloody Sheba

Bistrot Chez Rémy

Once you sliced through the paper thin courgette slices, tiny cubes of veg came tumbling out into roasting hot tomato sauce – delicious. Both dishes really were utterly divine, positively moreish and not a morsel was left behind.

We had barely finished discussing how yum our main courses were, when our desserts descended upon our table, Warm Tarte Tatin served with vanilla cream for me

Bistrot Chez Rémy

and “Gusteau’s Dessert” for Himself, which neither of us can reallly remember properly, but I think it was like, a profiterole with soft lemon meringue piped inside, lightly scorched and decorated with gold leaf – it’s definitely what it looks like anyway!!

Bistrot Chez Rémy

It doesn’t really matter, what matters is that both desserts were so good it was actually silly – and I can’t think of a higher compliment than that!

We love splashing out on one super fancy meal when we’re in Disney, like when we visited Cinderella’s Royal Table at Walt Disney World, so Chez Reémy’s was our equivalent in Paris and it was a real joy and very much worth the monies. So go, go, go!!

      It was wonderful and is definitely one you should add to your list the next time you go to Paris.

    When I saw the title of this post I didn’t realize it was going to be Ratatouille-themed…I LOVE that movie! The restaurant looks so cute and fun! Love the decorations. Also, that’s wonderful that the food and service were also good because I feel like many times when you go to a touristy, themed restaurant the food is often lacking. Great post!

      So true Colleen, but Disney are masters at taking “touristy” and making it special and they did it again with the (relatively new) Ratatouille area at DLP, we had such fun, both on the ride and at the restaurant! Thanks a mill!
