I was originally concerned with eating in the courtyard but when we arrived it was quaint and delightful. They had plenty of heaters thru out the courtyard and lighted tumble weed decorations were cute. The wait staff was very attentive and the owner stopped by all the tables to great and welcome everyone. The meal was the best tasting menu... More

I can honestly say in all my travels I have never visited and ate at the same restaurant for 3 days. This speaks to how good my experience was, on all three occasions. I was there twice for dinner and one brunch. One of the dinners I attended as a couple. Unfortunately my friend drank too much and she made... More

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
