Our Review of Bistrot Chez Remy and the Ratatouille Ride in Disneyland Paris

Last Updated on January 20, 2024 by Kelly

If you’re a fan of Disney’s Ratatouille movie, you’ll definitely want to head over to Walt Disney Studios Park at Disneyland Paris. Located within the Worlds of Pixar section of the park, you’ll find Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure ride as well as the restaurant Bistrot Chez Remy. We visited both attractions, and we’re sharing our full review of the ride and the restaurant! We’re including photos and our best tips for enjoying these attractions at Disneyland Paris.

Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure

Walt Disney Studios Remy's Ratatouille Adventure

Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure (known in French as Ratatouille: L’Aventure Totalement Toquée de Rémy) is easily one of the best rides at Walt Disney Studios. 

The ride was completed in 2014. When you approach the ride, it looks as if you are walking through a plaza in the middle of Paris. The exterior of the ride looks just like Gusteau’s restaurant from the movie. When you enter the ride, you’ll notice that you’ve been “shrunk” to the size of a rat. 

Guests of any height can ride Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, so it’s a great option for families with young children. We used Disney Premier Access to skip the line, and it was well worth the money in our opinion. We were able to walk right on. Because Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure is so popular, the lines are often long. Using Disney Premier Access can save you a lot of time if you don’t mind paying an additional fee.

Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure is a trackless 4D ride. This means that you can’t see the tracks in front of you as you glide across the floor. You’ll sit in a rat-shaped vehicle, and you won’t follow the car in front of you at all. So, there is no way to know exactly where you are headed next! That was one of our favorite aspects about this ride. We twirled effortlessly as we glided from room to room. 

As you move from room to room, you’ll be “chased” away by the kitchen staff. The attraction uses large 3D screens that reminded us of the ride Soarin’.

Once you finish Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, you’ll exit the rat car and you’ll be able to see  guests dining at the restaurant Bistrot Chez Remy. (This part reminds us of how Captain Jacks is located within view of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disneyland Paris.)

We found Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure to be interesting, fun, and very smooth. I’m a bit prone to motion sickness so I did get a little dizzy with the 3D screens, but I enjoyed it so much that I would definitely go again. Our favorite part of this ride was definitely the trackless technology. It makes the ride a very unique attraction!

Our Restaurant Review of Bistrot Chez Remy

Bistro Chez Remy at Walt Disney Studios

Bistrot Chez Remy is a restaurant located adjacent to Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure. When you enter the restaurant, you’ll first notice the decor. Everything is extra-large, so it’ll appear as if you’ve shrunk down to the size of a rat. Giant plates serve as dividers between booths, paper umbrellas tower over tables, and bottle caps are used for chairs. I especially liked the giant string lights overhead.

We highly recommend that you make reservations well in advance if you want to dine at Bistrot Chez Remy. We booked our trip to Disneyland Paris last-minute, and unfortunately when we looked there were no reservations available. However, we recommend that you check back frequently. While we were at the park, we noticed that dinner reservations became available the next day. We quickly made reservations and we were excited to be able to visit this restaurant. That’s why it’s always a good idea to keep checking the app!

Bistro Chez Remy at Walt Disney Studios in Paris

The menu at Bistrot Chez Remy is based on French classic cuisine. We ordered a prix fixe menu that came with a starter, a main course, and a dessert. 

Menu at Bistro Chez Remy

Here’s what I ordered at Bistrot Chez Remy:

  • Starter: Spelt and Mushroom Salad with Garlic and Parsley, Kitchen Garden Vinaigrette
  • Main Course: Grilled Steak, Ratatouille, and French Fries
  • Dessert: Bistro Delight, Flaky Pastry, Crispy Vanilla Cream Puffs, Whipped Cream, and Red Berries

Here’s what my husband ordered at Bistrot Chez Remy:

  • Starter: Duck with Thyme Flower and Pistachio Pâté en Croute, Fig Jam
  • Main Course: Grilled Steak, Ratatouille, and French Fries
  • Dessert: Chocolate Lava Cake with a Choc-Milk Caramel Centre, Custard

And our kiddo ordered:

  • Starter: Chicken Rillettes with Toast
  • Main Course: Linguine Pasta with Tomato Sauce and Ratatouille
  • Dessert: Fromage Blanc with Fresh Fruit

Personally, none of us really enjoyed the starters. However, we really enjoyed our main courses. The grilled steak was perfectly cooked and expertly seasoned. We had the option of having a sauce on the side, so we asked our server for his recommendation. He highly recommended the melted brie sauce, and it was the perfect pairing. We definitely recommend that you order that sauce! We were also really impressed with the desserts. Each one was fabulous!
