Good all round

Although familiar with Aix this was our first time at Lavault because the weather was so hot we asked to sit outside in the street for the evening. We liked the outside ambience watching the world pass by while so many other people tried in vain to get a table at this over-subscribed restaurant... read more

Booked this restaurant for dinner with my wife through "The Fork (La Fourchette)" four weeks before our visit on 4 June. Naively, I looked forward to eating in the ex vault pictured on their website at the time (I notice it has been changed since then). On arrival we were greeted by the manageress who unapologetically told us that due... More

Elegantly appointed restaurant in the old, pedestrian quarter. Food was exquisite, service was excellent and the whole evening was well priced.

I normally avoid chicken dishes - too boring. But their stuffed chicken was simply amazing. My wife had the loin of pork and is was (almost) as good. The atmosphere was fine dining without being stuffy, and the setting was small without being on top of each other. The portions were not what you would expect from fine dining, nor... More

Lavault was listed in the selections from our tour guide. After reading TA reviews before we left, I book for our first evening in France. So happy we made a reservation. The food traditional with a flair. The Menu is thankfully limited because we wanted all of it. We had to appetizers, 2 entrees, dessert and a bottle of wine... More

If the husband and I had found this earlier we would have definitely gone more than once. We did try to go on a previous evening but just turned up at 8.30 to be told they were not serving anymore. That was because a party of 25 were just about to arrive, they did so whilst I was talking to... More

This restaurant could easily have a Michelin star. Fantastic french food. Best foie gras ever, amazing chicken breasts and fish. The staff was so friendly and helpful and their English was fluent. The staff suggested a wine that was really good. The restaurant has both indoor and outdoor seating. The prices are reasonable. The restaurant is in the pedestrian area... More

Have visited this place a few times whilst I have been living in aix en provence and it is always superb. The foie grad club sandwich is a must and is a mainstay on the menu as is the fillet of beef with truffle jus and fondant potatoes. There is seating available inside and outside but the street is very... More

very good ambience, excellent service, very good food and reasonable price for a "fancy" dinner (35- 45 euros/person) including wine! I would definitely recommend it

Nice ambience and good food. Overall good, but can't give it a spectacular. Appetizers were great. I had the Rabbit and it was ok. But it's a 4.5.
