Fodor's Review

A longtime favorite that occupies the historic Roberson House, Le Vallauris is popular with ladies who lunch, all of whom get a hug from the maître d'. The menu changes daily, and each day it's handwritten on a white board. Lunch entrées might include perfectly rare tuna niçoise salad, or grilled whitefish with Dijon mustard sauce. Dinner might bring a sublime smoked salmon, sautéed calves' liver, roasted quail with orange sauce, or rack of lamb. There are also weekly

prix-fixe menus, with and without wine, for lunch and dinner. The restaurant has a lovely tree-shaded garden. On cool winter evenings, request a table by the fireplace.

Fantastic Vallauris in the heart of Palm Springs

Best food and restaurant experience ever in the valley. From a jazzy piano that welcomes you to the very cosy bar, and from the professional and friendly staff to the French specialties prepared by Chef Jean Paul Lair, Le vallauris definitely has it all.I wouldn't miss a dinner at Le Vallauris when i am visiting from Los Angeles.

The "Brightest of Stars"

le Vallauris is, without doubt, the place to go for that special occasion or when you just want an excellent meal in a delightful atmosphere. Paul Bruggaman, the owner, is always on hand to greet his guests and make sure your dining experience is in the le Vallauris style.
