Canada’s Le Cellier Steakhouse
Le Cellier Steakhouse is one of the more upscale restaurants at Walt Disney World’s Epcot theme park. It is located in the Canada Pavilion.
During my day-long visits to the Disney parks, I like having a sit-down lunch to take a break from the crowds and unwind. It is almost critical during the summer months to have some sit-down time in the cool air conditioning. For this particular visit, my friend Lynne and I decided to try out the Le Cellier Steakhouse.
Have you ever tried Canadian cuisine?
Le Cellier’s Decor
Lynne and I arrived at Le Cellier Steakhouse and were seated in their lovely and intimate dining room. The restaurant is designed to make you feel like you are in a wine cellar and proudly displays nice vintage bottles of wine throughout.
Le Cellier Starters
I promptly ordered the Canadian Cheddar cheese soup, my whole reason for choosing this restaurant. While we were waiting, the server brought some delicious pretzel breadsticks and rolls to our table, along with a decent portion of the creamy Canadian soup.
Canadian Cheese Soup is made with Moosehead beer. It is very tasty but pungent, which I was not prepared for. The cheese soup also had a few crunchy bits that I am assuming were bacon and celery. Overall, I really liked the flavor combination.
For our main course, Lynne chose the Baby Beets and Poached Pear salad, dotted with feta cheese and pistachios. She loved it! I liked the ingredients they chose to compliment each other.
Staying with the Canadian theme, I opted for the Pulled Barbecued Pork Poutine, with cornbread croutons and Japanese aioli. Poutine is nothing more than dressed up French fries, topped with fresh cheese curds and gravy. I did not see either of those things on this particular poutine, but it was enjoyable.
Though Lynne and I did not have room for dessert, we still admired each one that came out of the kitchen. Le Cellier Steakhouse’s most popular dessert is the Smoking Chocolate Mousse, a chocolate lovers dream with Grand Marnier, almond crunch, cinnamon marshmallow, and dark chocolate. Sounds delicious, don’t you think?
Final Thoughts on Le Cellier Steakhouse
All in all, I enjoyed dining here in the Canadian pavilion of the World Showcase at Epcot, but there was not much going on in the restaurant. I did not find the atmosphere as “special” as some Disney restaurants.
Le Cellier steaks that were delivered to nearby tables looked delicious but I cannot see how those people were able to do anything afterward but nap.
My Rating Scale: 1 (lowest) to 10 (highest)= 7 1/2
