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. Meals in a restaurant don't get any better than a meal at Lavendou. Excellent! (Even the french fries are special.) Highly recommended for anytime but especially for a special person...More

Prix Fixe meal is a good deal for Valentine's Day and is served in record time. The downside is they have to turnover the restaurant quickly in order to seat all the reservations they've made.

A charming French bistro - they don't have a gluten-free menu, but the server is VERY knowledgeable about the selections. I thoroughly enjoyed my evening.

My wife and I did not want to get fancy dressed for high-end pretentious French meal so opted for Lavendou for our 20th wedding anniversary. The homemade bread was wonderful with fine Herbs de Provence. The butter was not from the grocery store. The Coquille...More

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.
