Welcome to the next stop on Magical Blogorail Green . Today we are discussing the most romantic Disney restaurants. With out a doubt, Remy has to be on that list. We visited for the first time on our most recent Disney Cruise and it has become our all time favorite Disney dining experience. The food, the atmosphere, the Cast Members, everything was perfect.
Remy is located on Deck 12 on the Disney Dream and is an adults only dining experience. We were greeted by the maître d’ when we arrived and he showed us to our table. When he learned that this was our first visit he took the time to explain the theme of the restaurant and some of the details.
Remy is of course named after the main character in Disney’s Ratatouille. The little chef makes an appearance in some of the decor including the backs of the chairs. He also watches over the dining room from one of the chandeliers.
Overall the restaurant is absolutely gorgeous and if you love the movie you’ll have fun finding all of the details but most are so subtle that you don’t feel like you are dining in a Disney restaurant.
While the food is amazing the overall experience it what sets Remy apart from other Disney restaurants. The Cast Members were all wonderful. It can be intimidating visiting an upscale restaurant but they made us feel at home and completely at ease. Our server Thomas was so great that we just let him decide what our courses would be. We told him the few things we didn’t want and he took over from there.
Each time a new course was brought out our plates were placed on the table at the exact same time. Thomas came over and explained each dish as soon as they were presented. We also chose to do the wine pairing so Remy’s sommelier stopped by at the beginning of each course to tell us what was paired with each dish. We each had a different dish and wine each time so it was fun not only seeing what was chosen for ourselves but for each other too.
Dinner began with a surprise. Our server made each of us the Colette which is Remy’s complementary specialty cocktail. It is named after one of the chef’s in the film and is made with with fresh mint, fresh raspberries, dried apricot, Absolute Pear vodka infused with fresh mint, and champagne. It was delicious!
Next was the Amuse-Bouche, tomato soup that was flash fried. It was something completely unexpected but so yummy! The bread course was also brought out. We sampled a little but I didn’t want to fill up on bread with seven courses coming.
The first course was the only dish that was the same, ratatouille with fresh cream. Again, yum!
But this is where I was a bad blogger. We were enjoying ourselves so much that I didn’t write down what we had each course so other than being able to tell you whether it was seafood or pigeon (yes, Drew ate pigeon and loved it) I really can’t give you any other details. At least we remembered the photos! 🙂
The menu does change and with so many wonderful options your meal will probably be completely different than ours.
For the cheese course a cart is rolled out with all of the many options. We decided once again to let them choose for us but we had a variety of cheeses along with accompaniments.
Dessert was almost too beautiful to eat. We each had chocolate. Drew’s had white and dark chocolate and was gorgeous. And I had a chocolate mousse with fresh raspberries.
Next came an assortment of handmade candies. We were so full that most of it was packaged up so we could enjoy it in our stateroom later. We were also given a box of chocolates that we managed to save until we got home and I was given a long stemmed red rose.
They also brought out this beautiful plate while we enjoyed dessert since we were celebrating our wedding anniversary.
