Think lightly dusted tempura prawns with a lemon sauce accompaniment; seared foie gras; roast duck with sauce of orange zest accompanied by deliciously French-fried potatoes.

I now understand the hype: it's deserved. This semi open air enclave is where the wealthy in Palm Springs congregate. From the live combo in the dark, comfortable bar to the large dining room with no ceiling under the established ficus trees, this place screams...More

Description
Established in the heart of Palm Springs since 1973, Le Vallauris located at the foot of San Jacinto Mountains has been the highest rated restaurant in the Palm Springs Valley since its inception. Owned and operated by the well known restaurateur Paul Bruggemans who was also owner of the Famous Le St Germain restaurant in Hollywood. The Historic Landmark was built in 1927 and was owned by the owners of the famous Desert Inn which was The hotel in the Valley. Many grand parties were held in the house for guests such as Duke Ellington, Nat King Cole, Louis Armstrong and many more. It was a favorite place for General Patton when he was based in Palm Springs to stage the Battle of the Bulge during World War II. Later on, when the restaurant was established it became a favorite place for Presidents and the Hollywood elite. The renowned Patio lined with Giant Fichus trees is THE place to dine. The Patio is cooled in the Summer and heated in the Winter.
