Fodor's Expert Review Lavault
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
Named for its vaulted stone cellar, where you can dine or enjoy your predinner apéro (a better choice than the ordinary upstairs), this bistro has a frequently changing menu, but go for the foie gras club if you find it. You can't go wrong with anything on this menu, though: duck ravioli with foie gras and morels, or sea trout with saffron-mussel risotto are equally tempting. For dessert the white chocolate cheesecake or raspberries in lemon cream make for a satisfying finish. A well-rounded wine list—plenty by the glass—and a good children's menu make this a good choice for a family lunch. The three-course menu (€37) is the best deal.
