We ate brunch at PALO (post about this coming soon), but I wanted to try Remy, too. Since we only had 4 days and wanted to experience other dining on the ship, I saw the dessert experience as a great opportunity...we love dessert! So, I booked this for my husband, my mother-in-law, and myself. We were greeted by a friendly staff and all guests were escorted to their assigned tables. Before we were presented with the desserts, Stephane from France, explained some unique characteristics about the restaurant. No details were left out when creating Remy. While you're seated, you might not notice the designs without having them pointed out, but if you look carefully, you might find the famous rat from Ratatouille who adores food and dreams of becoming a chef himself. Can you see him?
He also explained how the six course dessert experience would unfold. The Remy Executive Chef, Benoit from France, would explain the history of the desserts prepared. There was a suggested wine pairing with the desserts that could be added on, too. Then, we would get to try the delicious creations.
Monsieur Benoit started off discussing the Pina Colada. As the desserts were presented each time, the Cast Members in Remy all simultaneously would place the dessert on the table. As everyone at the table tasted, we shared thoughts. Some loved the chocolate treats, some liked the berry ones, and others enjoyed them all. This one was light and fluffy. Fresh coconut slivers and lime zest were placed on top and at the bottom of the glass were pineapple pieces. YUM!
The Framboise, which is French for raspberry, was next on the menu. As you can see, this sweet berry is featured on this delectable treasure. I think it might have been my favorite. Everything you see is edible...even the flower petals. Raspberries and I believe a type of cheese were alternating between two crisp wafers with jam. On top, there were more raspberries and berry syrup. It was accompanied by sorbet.
The third dessert we got to sample was called Pomme, which is French for apple. I know I said that the raspberry one was the one I enjoyed the most, but it might have been a tie. This one was also fantastic! Apples, meringue, and other sweet ingredients were combined to make this. It seriously tastes as good as it looks.
Next we tried Croustillant Agrume Noisette. This translates to crispy citrus hazelnut. While I am a fan of oranges, I'm not a lover of all citrus fruits, and this one had grapefruit, so it wasn't a hit with me. The pastry shell was filled with assorted citrus fruit, so I guess it is most comparable to a fruit tart. I believe there is hazelnut on the bottom which did pair nicely with the fruit and pastry.
Our second to last dessert was called Louis XV. This has a nut based wafer-like bottom topped with a chocolate mousse and is completely covered in chocolate ganache. The gold leaf pieces on top are also edible. It was rich, and I'm confident most chocolate lovers will call it divine.
Our final treat was called Chocolat Menthe which was a light, minty chocolate frozen dessert. Once again, it was finished with edible gold leaf pieces. It was the perfect end to all of the items we tried.
The experience concluded with a parting gift. Macarons were packaged "to go" for all of us. We enjoyed sharing these with the children. Overall, it was something I'm glad we tried and got to do together. The price was around $60 per person, so if the above sounds like something you would be interested in, check it out. It is held on a day at sea and space will be limited.
