What a wonderful experience. The ambiance was gorgeous. We choose to eat outside as the weather was perfect for outdoor dining, but I want to return to experience the lovely inside dining as well. The interior was so beautiful and romantic as we walked through...More

Fabulous French comfort food last night at Lavendou! Escargot appetizer tender and garlicky perfection. The French bread and dipping oil was divine... I had the bouillabaisse — full of perfectly stewed flaky fish, scallop, shrimp, clams and mussels in a heavenly saffron infused broth. Hubby...More

What a breath of fresh air. I liked this French Bistro better than the bistros in Paris. The French born owner Pascal Cayer takes the edge off French cuisine for his American customers. This will be reminiscent of France and make you want to go...More

We've been eating at Lavendou (and its predecessor/sister restaurant Chez Gerard) since 1985. That only shows our age (and the number of pounds we've put on over the years)..... Pascal Cayet, the owner, and (most of) his team not only "talk" French, they "cook" French,...More

My husband just took me here for my birthday dinner and we had a lovely meal. Lavendou is located in a little strip center near a Condom Sense, a massage parlor, and a vape shop - but do not let the location deter you. The...More

Pleasant surroundings in French themed restaurant on Preston Road in Plano. Extensive wine list specializing in French reds and whites. Attentive wait staff some of which can converse in French. Alfresco dining available. Ambiance caters to older crowd as does the menu.

Lavendou offers outstanding food: fresh ingredients, expertly prepared and delightfully presented by attentive, knowledgeable staff.

Lavendou, a retreat into the French countryside - a place where life is savored as much as the food. Lavendou is thoroughly French, from the inviting decor to the gracious service and authentic cuisine. But don't expect it to be pretentious. Owner Pascal Cayet is dedicated to providing service that is friendly and efficient. And you will find Chef Francois Soyez's menu to be deliciously approachable. Serving the lighter fare of Southern France, Lavendou offers many items to tempt your taste buds.
