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.

Le Vallauris has developed a famous reputation for outside caterings from 2 to 500 guests. The key to success is that Chef Jean Paul prepares all the food on site, no pre-cooked food is kept in hot boxes for a whole day! Le Vallauris has catered to parties as far as Laguna Beach at the coast. A professional service staff is used to give unobtrusive and friendly service. Weddings and Corporate events are their specialty. Comprehensive packages are available to accommodate budgets.

As always, the service was great and we love the atmoshere. Maybe i ordered the wrong thing-i had the 3 course dinner for $63, but the food was not as good as the laset time we were in Palm Springs. I would still dine there again.

We celebrated our 33rd anniversary here and I couldn’t think of a better place to be! If I could give them 10 stars, I would! Every scrumptious bite was decadent, art on a plate! It’s hard to describe how amazing the ahi tuna was, how delicious every spoonful of the lobster bisque was on our lips and oh... the lamb and sea bass - What can I say, sinfully good! Finally, the dessert of Baked Alaska - yum!

The service was also exceptional and every moment made this a night to remember. We are incredibly blessed to live in an amazing “foodie” city in Portland, but nothing comes close to the meal we enjoyed this evening in Palm Springs. Thank you for an amazing celebration!
