Top 5 restaurants in Epcot’s World Showcase
The world is your oyster when it comes to Epcot’s World Showcase. With eleven countries represented in the showcase, it’s a wonderful chance for you and your family to explore a new culture and try a new cuisine. Each pavilion brings something different and unique to the table. Spend the day discovering the best of what every country has to offer. With so many options to choose from, I’ve narrowed it down to the top 5 restaurants in Epcot’s World Showcase that will guarantee you a great meal.
If the dishes from the movie Ratatouille made you want to eat at a fancy French restaurant, then no further than Monsieur Paul in Disney’s Epcot. Recently refurbished and located just upstairs from Les Chefs de France, the other gourmet French restaurant in the France Pavilion, the overall decor is elegant and relaxed with a touch of classic French architecture. Sophisticated and indulgent, the food at Monsieur Paul exudes French culinary technique with a twist. The black sea bass crusted in potato scales with a rosemary sauce and the oxtail soup topped with puff pastry and fresh shaved truffles are just some of the signature items on the menu.
Rose and Crown Pub and Dining
Now Rose and Crown offers a cozy dining room and a lively pub area, both serving traditional British staples with a spectacular view of World Showcase lagoon. The over 21 crowd will love the wide selection of alcoholic beverages to go along with some typical British bites, like Fish and Chips and Scotch Egg, a hard boiled egg wrapped in sausage. In the dining room, have a classic British meal by the fire place and enjoy favorites like Bangers and Mash and Shepherd’s pie. There’s even an outdoor patio that overlooks the water, the perfect place to be on a sunny day.
Le Cellier is a steakhouse set in a Canadian chateau with sweeping archways and romantic candle light. It will feel as though you are eating in a luxuriously grand wine cellar. The menu is inspired by the provinces of Canada and one of their signature dishes is a filet mignon on a bed of wild mushroom risotto with a truffle butter sauce. They serve more than just beef at this steakhouse, with delicious alternatives such as seared scallops and herbed chicken roulade. While there, you must try the Canadian Cheddar Cheese soup, made with Moosehead beer and Applewood smoked bacon. And save room for dessert for their maple Crème brûlée.
You get dinner and a show with this next restaurant in the Japan pavilion. At Teppan Edo, the decor is sleek and elegant and mimics the style of Japan’s Edo period. Talented chefs prepare your meal teppan-yaki style, which means they grill the food, with culinary flair, right at your table. Choose from steak, chicken, seafood and vegetable entrees, typically served with steamed rice and Udon noodles. Some fan favorites include the teriyaki chicken and the ginger-braised pork ribs. With an ice cold glass of sake, you will certainly enjoy this burst of Japanese culture.
Step into a little corner of southern Italy when you visit Via Napoli. Get swept away in the charm of Italy with the rustic and airy atmosphere of this restaurant. Start your meal off with a Mozzarella Caprese appetizer, made with vine-ripened tomato and fresh mozzarella. Their pizza doesn’t get any more authentic, especially when every pizza pie is cooked in a wood burning oven. Other than a wide variety of pizza toppings to choose from, also on the menu are Italian staples like Lasagna and Eggplant Parmigiana. Treat yourself to an after dinner cappuccino and a tiramisu and you’ll have had the full tour of Italian cuisine. Definitely stop and “mangia” at Via Napoli next time you’re strolling by the Italian pavilion.
