We entertained clients at Le Vallauris last night. We sat in the open air courtyard. The courtyard has trees that create a beautiful roof over the dinning area. The trees are nicely decorated with lights. There was a three piece band playing some classic tunes. A keyboard player, a guy on the stand up bass and a bongo player were... More

What can say you about a first class French restaurant, where the owner is on hand and makes your dinner a special occasion. Paul, the owner, and Willy the waiter made us feel like friends in their home. The food was as good as anything I had in Paris. The duck was even better than Tour D'Argent. After dinner join... More

We've been weekend escaping to Palm Springs for some 30 years and Le Vallauris has become our favorite. The courtyard setting is magical with the old style chalk menu board, and the manager coming around to check if all was up to snuff. The sommelier has a bit of a 'tide, but that seems to go with the position. His... More

Attended a wedding services event at Le Vallauris. Gorgeous location. Beautifully appointed rooms, bar and "gazebo". Excellent service, food and drink. I can't wait to go for dinner!

Great experience in service and menu options. Beautiful patio with large, graceful trees that provided an intimate dining environment. Lots of choices for the discriminating palate. Loved the service. This is our new tradition when visiting Palm Springs. A la prochaine!

After eating American food for two weeks Le Vallauris is a very welcome break! Almost authentic French food in the desert! Le Vallauris would not earn a Michelin star in Europe but is still very good. the patees: very nice! The main entrees: we had roast of lamb and lobster, very tasty. The only setback is the way the wine... More

Been coming here for over twenty years, whenever we get to town. No desire to go anywhere else for a treat meal. I cannot remember ever having a disappointing meal here. The chalkboard menu changes regularly, so no point in making a specific item review, but just point your finger at any one, and you will not go wrong. Outstanding... More

Le Valluaris is in my opinion, the best restaurant in Palm Springs, for fine dining.
