On a recent Disney Cruise with a dear friend, we treated ourselves to a brunch at Remy. At the time of writing, this adult only dining option starts at $75 per person. There is a dress code and even at brunch guests definitely dress up for this dining experience. We got all gussied up after rolling out of the oh so comfortable beds on the Disney Fantasy, and went upstairs.
We were quickly escorted to our seat while being given a brief synopsis of the history of the restaurant. Our table had a lovely water view and if one looked hard enough, a small amount of the AquaDuck!
We were given a water menu and asked what kind we would like. Simply put, if I am going to indulge in a beverage during an already expensive meal, it's going to be an adult libation nine times out of ten. For that reason, I told our server that I would be happy with tap and so did my dining companion who whispered in my ear she could not justify $15 on breakfast water.
We were quickly served complimentary champagne and black foot ham to start. I ordered the champagne package which came with three additional glasses throughout the meal and our brunch was off to a tasty start.
Unlike Palo next door, Remy is a prix fixe menu that might only be altered to accommodate a dietary restriction. The server did let us know the menu and checked that we were okay with it.
The first official course was Maine lobster with mango and caviar. I eat limited seafood but do like lobster.
You can't quite see it in the picture, but underneath the garnishes lies a generous portion of the main meat. We both REALLY enjoyed this dish. It's one I will definitely think about later. I'm literally salivating writing about it. The flavors were so bright and delicious. It was an exciting first course.
The poor unfortunate course that came after one of the best bites I've ever indulged in was a tooth fish dish with pureed and gravy. It was good. My dish was not too fishy, but my companion's was unfortunately. We both thought it was good, and I enjoyed it more than most fish entrees I've had in the past, but I was still unable to finish this one. This was our least enjoyed course, but that is possibly not a fair assessment considering that almost anything eaten after that ravioli would leave us wanting.
After we had finished our brunch, we were visited by the chef to assure that we enjoyed our meal. We gave him compliments and it was enjoyable to hear him move on and chat with some of what seemed to be Remy regulars.
As one last treat, we were presented with these adorable little canale'. They are little bites with hints of rum and vanilla and a great way to end a delicious meal.
