Bistro De Paris Epcot (1)

We had booked a table for 6pm but had to behave very well as we cruised the Food & Wine festival huts during the afternoon, no mean feat I can tell you! I may have had a few glasses though Hic! Okay I had a few nibbles too.
The Bistro is situated upstairs, we arrived on time and only had a tiny wait. This is quite a posh place and we turned up in our park clothes, I felt slightly out of place (everywhere else we went we had changed for dinner) but can’t be helped, it takes so long to get back and change and on inspection most people for such an early sitting were not particularly dressed up, I had asked earlier about dress code and was told no tank tops. We had a nice table centrally located so I could be very nosey and see all the crepe suzettes being flambĂ©ed! It’s not too big a place so noise levels were minimal too.
Our impressive waiter was Rodolphe from Versailles, who took time out to tell us about his 12 month placement at Epcot. We were brought an amuse bouche compliments of the chef, pork, parsnip and paprika parcel- very good.
We shared the quail starter, which was excellent, very tender and lightly grilled this was served with puy lentils, an endive and parmesan salad with a parmesan crisp.

For me: Bouillabaisse with sea bass and mussels and baby veg., the broth/stock had perfect flavour, this was topped by the lightest onion ring I ever tasted.

Dan’s veal was very full in taste but light in texture, served with parsnips, carrots and mushrooms.

Dessert ‘pour moi bien sur’ was apple tart with apple cider and green apple sorbet, what can I say? Heaven.

Two cappuccinos and a bottle of Givry Pinot Noir completed our meal. The total was $180 inc tax and tip. Service, ambience, food and wine were fantastic. We will return!

Spot on with this write-up, I honestly feel this amazing site needs a
lot more attention. I’ll probably be back again to see more, thanks for the advice!
