EPCOT in World Showcase, France Pavilion


Maine lobster with sauteed mushrooms, poached egg, creamy black-truffle bouillon, lamb tenderloin, roasted duck breast


Monsieur Paul may be a bit formal and high-priced for many park guests, but if you can get past the sticker shock, this is the spot for a quiet dinner and conversation. Young chef Nicolas Lemoyne, who worked at l’Auberge du Pont de Collonges in Lyon, France, wows diners with classic French tastes, including Maine lobster with pommes fondantes in black-pepper sauce, and warm chocolate-almond cake with raspberry coulis. There’s also a three-course fixed-price menu ($89 per person), along with a solid wine list. A rather grown-up kids’ menu includes roasted chicken breast and filet mignon.

Setting and Atmosphere

Light and modern, Monsieur Paul is tucked away upstairs at the France Pavilion. Access lies up a stairway (there’s also an elevator) lined with photos of legendary French chef Paul Bocuse. His son, Jérôme, runs the restaurants started in 1982 in Epcot by his father and two other famous French chefs, Gaston Lenôtre and Roger Vergé, and can often be seen visiting tables in the dining room. Despite Monsieur Paul’s relaxed ambience, this is definitely upscale cuisine, with sublime sauces and classic French preparations. Open only for dinner; request a table at the windows to watch the world go by on World Showcase Lagoon. Seats just 120.

To "preserve the atmosphere," the restaurant has a minimum dress code. See Disney's website for specifics, but basically don't look like you just wandered in from the beach: no swimsuits/cover-ups, cut-offs, hats (for men only), flip-flops, tank tops, ripped clothes, etc. And guys, wear a shirt with a collar.

House Specialties

Chef Bocuse's black-truffle soup; red snapper; classic cassolette d'escargots; roasted duck breast with oxtailstuffed cabbage.
