With an eclectic location that seamlessly melds a historic ranch home with lavish European tapestries, Louis XV royal furnishings, and an elegant courtyard seemingly plucked out of the south of France, Le Vallauris is one of the finest – and most memorable – dining experiences one can have in all of Palm Springs.
The brain child of Paul Bruggemans, Le Vallauris features a rotating series of prix fixe menus. Diners can choose between enjoying their feast by candlelight in the elegant dining room sumptuously wrapped in Flemish tapestries and surrounded by warm wood paneling and vibrant art, or al fresco style on the large patio nestled beneath stately shade trees and surrounded by intoxicatingly aromatic flowers. Here service is first-class, the food is out of this world, and the hospitality is unparalleled.
The Menus at Le Vallauris Palm Springs
Every week the chefs prepare a new set of menus focusing on locally sourced, organic ingredients. Diners can choose from a 3-course tasting menu, a 5-course degustation menu, or from the delicious selections on the a la carte “Blackboard” dinner menu. French classics are presented in unique ways, with traditional flavors meeting innovative presentations or playful reinterpretations. Succulent dishes like Duck Foie Gras and Porcini Ravioli or Wild Boar Pate offer savory and decadent introductions to your meal, with rich and refreshing main courses like Roasted Veal in a Calvados sauce or the Maine Lobster Raviolis in a basil bisque sure to invigorate your palate. Letting the chef guide your flavor adventure is always preferred, especially when one considers how hard it can be to navigate a menu with so many delicious choices that making a decision can prove difficult. Daily specials, an outstanding wine list that pairs beautiful with the tasting menus, and outstanding caviar selections that can supplement any meal make this one of the best restaurants in town, if not the state!
An Experience Like No Other
Le Vallauris is more than just a fantastic meal; it is an experience. Nightly dinners (5-10pm), refreshing lunches (Fri-Sat, 11:30am-2pm), and a Champagne Brunch (Sun 11:30am-2pm) are the mainstays, of course, but you can also have the fine chefs at Le Vallauris Palm Springs cater your special event or wedding, or join them for a cooking class that is sure to open your horizons. The perfect combination of elegant venue, delicious cuisine, and a friendly atmosphere – at incredibly reasonable prices – make this the premiere environs to indulge your love of French food.
