Fodor's Expert Review Lavault
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.
