While strolling into the Canadian Pavilion don’t pass by the iron gate as it holds a wonderful secret! Enter the replica of Vancouver’s Victoria Gardens and feel as if you have walked into a Thomas Kincade painting! That imposing stone structure ahead houses one of the most sought after dining venues at WDW. Le Cellier! As you approach Le Cellier just below the Chateau you will marvel at the resemblance to a Canadian castle. Le Cellier meaning “the cellar” in French is appropriately themed. There is only ambient lighting-no windows, and rich wood. Elaborately coffered celinings and chendeliers with the appearance of dripping candles lend to the illusion of dining in the wine cellar. Le Cellier also boasts an extensive wine menu that can be enjoyed at luch or dinner.
As fabulous as the theming is there is a reason Le Cellier must be booked 6 months out! The food is amazing! Book your advanced dining reservations early as the dining room is quite small and you will be impressed.
You must start with the renowned Canadian Cheddar Cheese Soup made with Moosehead beer of course for $9.00 (view the recipe in the recipe section). The ginormous freshly baked pretzels will have your mouth watering (great to dip in your soup). The piece de resistance of course if the Mushroom Filet Mignon which lives up to its reputation. This 8 oz filet of Canadian AAA Beef Tenderloin will not disappoint! It is served with mushroom risotto that is light in taste
and does not overpower the subtle flavor of the beef. Drizzled with white truffle butter sauce it is finished perfectly. This truffle sauce is so delicious I usually steal some of my children’s fries to dip in the remaining sauce! If you are more adventurous the venison medallions are a unique experience and the duck was cooked to perfection-no greasy quackers here. The kids menu offers tried and true favorites (see below).
Enjoy a glass of one of the diverse wine selection or a glass of Canadian brew. Check out an Epcot Food and Wine Festival Inniskillin Vidal Icewine. They also offer 5 teas, 3 ports, martinis, and nonalcoholic specialty drinks.
Desert is not to be missed either. The maple crusted creme
brulee is just the right amount of sweet. The kids will enjoy the chocolate moose pictured below.
