We (two couples) had Thanksgiving dinner here. The meal was fantastic and it was great that there were options for the vegetarian in our group. The outdoor terrace was magical at night, with perfect temperature. Our server, Willie, was attentive, funny and a delight. The wine sommelier, Bruce, was helpful and recommended a great red wine at a reasonable price.... More

From the Maitre D' taking an elongated phone call rather than seating us first, to the rather pompous table service with a silly large menu blackboard as the third person at the table, to the bland soup starters to the unchallenging but nice lamb rack to the absurdly high wine prices, it feels like its running under the if its...

We all agreed that the food preparation , service and ambiance could not have more spot on. Even though the restaurant was absolutely sold out the service team presented the courses quickly and at the same time. No waiting for one more plate to arrive before starting. One of the guests at my table said. "It is like watching a... More

We live in France and come each year. For us this is by far the best restaurant in the desert. The lunch has a set price menu that is reasonable for the quality. The terrace is charming...

This restaurant was opened in 1973 in a house that was built in 1927. It has been rated as the best restaurant ever since it opened. Had Thanksgiving Dinner and it was wonderful.

After living in Roswell NM and no access to quality dining, this was like receiving the mother lode. We ate in the bar with Kevin who is the most amazing bartender EVER!!! The food, drinks and wine were stellar and the service even better! One of our highlights of the trip was choosing to stop into this quaint lovely place... More

Came to Le Vallauris based on recommendation. I was looking for a romantic atmosphere at their patio was perfect. The food and service is exceptional. My only complaint was the soufflé it was in need of some flavor it was more of a merengue. It looked beautiful but basically just fluffy egg whites. My husband had crème brûlée which was... More

The food: so many courses on the pre-fix menu, and one more delicious than the next. Truly not a bad course. The waiter, who has been there since the 80's, recommended one of the best bottles of wine anyone in our party has ever enjoyed. The menu is presented on a whiteboard, so fun, and so many options, you will... More

We sat outdoors at were sooo happy with the atmosphere here, it's magical! And our waiter was lovely. What a shame then that the food and drink were such a huge disappointment. We took the $59 prix fixe menu, a cocktail, a glass of Champagne, and their best glass of red. All were hugely disappointing. The Champagne did not taste... More

Thank you for your review. Proseco has never been served at Le Vallauris, what you are getting is Veuve Ambal brut for 14.00 dollars, yet you had the choice to order Perrier Jouet for 25.00 , ? As for the Sauvignon blanc, you were served a Sancerre and your cab has been enjoyed by our entire clientele. Now, in the... More
