Guest Review: Bistrot Chez Rémy at Disneyland Paris

Join us in welcoming Guest Author Mark Zambrano with a review from Disneyland Paris. Today, he takes us to the brand new Bistrot Chez Rémy!

Welcome to Chez Remy

Welcome to Chez Remy

Bistrot Chez Rémy is the new 370 seat table service restaurant located on La Place de Rémy at Walt Disney Studios Park, the largest in Disneyland Paris.

Immaculately themed with Disney details around every bend, this rat-sized addition to Disneyland Paris is a fantastic chance to step inside the wonderful world of Ratatouille.

Atmosphere

Follow the signs from Toy Story Playland to La Place de Rémy, where roofs are crowded with crooked chimneys, classic Parisian street lamps line the cobblestone streets, and hidden Rémy’s abound.

Imagineers seemed to have spared no expense creating this “Pixar Paris” that transports guests to the City of Light right in the middle of a Disney Park.

Adjacent to the incredible new ride, Ratatouille: The Adventure – L’Aventure Totalement Toquée de Rémy, is Bistrot Chez Rémy, serving French food with flare and shrinking diners to the size of Rémy & Co. with the help of some very oversized furniture, cutlery, and other accoutrements.

As soon as you walk through the door of Chez Rémy, you are immersed in Ratatouille. From Chef Gusteau’s Golden Fork award, Rémy’s honorary Doctorate of Culinary Arts, Anton Ego’s famous critique or the famed “Anyone Can Cook!” cookbook, the walls are awash with memorabilia to set the mood.

Make sure to pay special attention as you walk past the check in desk – you might just spy a 5 euro note framed on the wall. It’s the tip left by Chez Rémy’s very first customer!

Continue on to the dining room where champagne corks serve as stools, giant plates divide the booths and lights come courtesy of candles on spoons. Tropical drink umbrellas add flare to jelly topped tables, Christmas lights hang through giant copper pots on the ceiling and measuring spoons dress the walls with tacks.

You can tell great pains were taken to replicate the final scene of the movie to a T. As we were guided to our table (AKA the top of a sardine can), we barely had enough time to take it all in.

Eats

Our bottle cap chairs were surprisingly comfortable as we perused the menu – all prix fixe with the exception of dessert, if you so choose. While offerings are limited, there should be something for everyone on the menu – including vegetarians. The dish made famous by [Read more…]

News! Ratatouille Themed Restaurant Will Open in Disneyland Paris this Summer

The popularity of the Disney-Pixar film Ratatouille has inspired a new ride and restaurant opening in Walt Disney Studios at Disneyland Paris this Fall!

Ratatouille - The Ride!

Ratatouille – The Ride!

And it’ll be brought to guests from the viewpoint of Chef Rémy — the rat who followed his cooking passion despite his kind being unwelcome in the kitchen.

Chef Paul Bocuse (Monsieur Paul) will oversee the project, which includes the ride Ratatouille: L’Aventure Totalement Toquée de Rémy.

The Ride!

Taking place inside the film’s Chez Gusteau, guests will explore the restaurant from Rémy’s point of view. While sitting in a “rat” vehicle, a thrilling adventure takes place with antagonist Chef Skinner on the chase.

Watch out for Chef Skinner!

The Restaurant!

The adjacent restaurant, Le Bistrot de Rémy, will open in Summer 2014 and, of course, feature ratatouille on the menu!

With Chef Bocuse at the imagineering helm, we know it will definitely be something to get on your dining list if you’re visiting Disneyland Paris this year!
