France Booth Menu & Review (2023 Epcot Food & Wine Festival)

France Booth Menu & Review (2023 Epcot Food & Wine Festival)

Welcome to the France booth, an Epcot Food and Wine Festival marketplace that never ceases to have a long line and a booth that actually isn’t that good. Yeah, we said it.

You might be asking yourself, “How could France be that bad, especially since it has the famous frozen alcoholic slushy?”

Well, believe it or not, this year’s slushy (Parisian Cosmo Slush with Vodka, Grey Goose Le Ctiron Vodka, Grand Marnier and Cranberry Juice) is too sweet, melts way too fast, and is ridiculously overpriced. $14.95? Really?

If you want a good frozen slushy in France, visit Les Vins des Chefs de France instead.

Let’s also talk about the Boeuf Bourguignon, Pomme Dauphine (Braised Short Ribs in Cabernet with Puffed Potatoes). These are not “puffed potatoes” — they are tater tots. This booth isn’t fooling anyone.

That said, there are a couple items we didn’t find completely horrible: the cheese-filled beignet and the two wines.

If you do head here, keep in mind you will have to wait in a long line. You may even want to rope drop the marketplace as soon as it opens.

Heather (Editor)

  • Likes: Strong flavors, anything made out of potatoes, white wines, all beers (especially stouts and wheat beers), doesn’t mind sweet (plain fruit is NOT a dessert. Ever.)

Photos & Reviews

Beignet aux Trois Fromages

A warm beignet filled with a blend of three cheeses.

France Beignet
  • Price: $6.95
  • Special Diets: N/A
  • Rating: 3.8/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Generously sized, deliciously cheesy.
Heather: The bread has a flavor that’s a bit off, in my non-refined palate opinion, but I’d eat it again because you can’t loose with beignets and cheese!
Felicia: This is pretty good. The beignet has a sweet donut flavor that pairs pretty well with the saltiness of the cheese.
Allyson: Full of cheesy and bready goodness. Yum! This doesn’t fail each year.

Croissant aux Escargots

A warm croissant filled with escargot and topped with a garlic and parsley sauce.

France Escargots
  • Price: $7.50
  • Special Diets: N/A
  • Rating: 3.0/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Warm croissant with ok flavors, but garlic extra strong
Felicia: This is okay for escargot. Great herby and garlic flavor. But it’s the bread is so dry because there is no sauce all over the bread and what is there has been crisped in the oven.

Boeuf Bourguignon, Pommes Dauphine

Braised short ribs in cabernet with puffed potatoes.

France Beef
  • Price: $7.75
  • Special Diets: N/A
  • Rating: 2.5/5

Our Thoughts

Heather: Not a bad flavor but calling it “puffed potatoes” instead of a tater tot is lame, IMHO.
Felicia: This is dried gross beef with tater tots. The dish last year was delicious. This is not.

Crème Brûlée Vanille à la Confiture de Fraises

A vanilla crème brûlée made with house-made strawberry jam.

France Creme Brulee
  • Price: $5.95
  • Special Diets: N/A
  • Rating: 3.0/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Creamy, slightly sweet deliciousness
Heather: Good flavor and not too sweet.
Felicia: A decent creme brûlée but I don’t particularly care for cooked strawberry because it tastes artificial. Nothing special but decent choice for creme brûlée fans.
Allyson: I really don’t like crème brûlée. Just not my thing. The texture kind of weirds me out.

Merlot-Cabernet Sauvignon Blend

A Merlot-Cabernet Sauvignon blend made by Château de Le Clos de Confreries from the Bordeaux region of France.

France Merlot Cab
  • Price: $5.75
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 3.0/5

Our Thoughts

Heather: Please come to France for your wines. An excellent blend for anyone who enjoys a red.
Felicia: I liked this a lot. Not too dry, not too sweet. Very drinkable red and it’s chilled.
Allyson: I’m not a red wine fan, which is why I am also not a fan of this.


A slightly oaky and butter Chardonnay made by Maison Nicolas in Languedoc, France.

France Chardonnay
  • Price: $5.50
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 3.3/5

Our Thoughts

Heather: Very good Chardonnay. Little buttery.
Felicia: Decent Chardonnay. Not especially oaky and sufficiently dry. Not the best thing I’ve ever had but it’s fine.
Allyson: A standard Chardonnay. Not horrible, but also not outstanding.

Parisian Cosmo Slush

A slushy made with vodka, Grey Goose Le Citron Vodka, Grand Marnier, and cra

France Slushy
  • Price: $14.95
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 2.7/5

Our Thoughts

Heather: The flavor tastes fake. Better slushee options in France than the one here!
Felicia: Not generally a fan of these, but even less this year than past years. It has an odd tea like flavor. It’s super sweet. And it’s so so so overpriced. Not worth waiting in line for.
Allyson: I like these slushes but it melts so fast and is so overpriced. It’s also on the sweeter side for me.

Strawberry Rose Mimosa

A mimosa made with Pol Remy sparkling wine, orange juice, and Monin strawberry rose flavored syrup.

France Mimosa
  • Price: $9.25
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 2.8/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Extremely mild flavors. Wanted more strawberry.
Heather: Yum! I liked this mimosa better than the ones at Shimmering Sips. I can definitely taste the strawberries!
Felicia: This has an artificial strawberry flavor that I didn’t care for. It wasn’t bad and would probably be refreshing for those that enjoy mimosas and strawberry flavoring.
Allyson: If you watched how they made this you wouldn’t want this. Pass. Also just too sweet.
