Service was terrible. More interested in a new puppy they'd bought. Had an argument about service in France. We were told it was normal not to eat courses at the same time in a France. Have lived here for ten years, never been told that before!! Food was not good. I could have warmed up a better cassoulet from a... More

We had lunch here on Saturday for the first time, thought we would try it as we had heard good reports of it. We were not disappointed, it was quirky and fun and not trying to be white table cloths and silver dining service. It has a nice family feel where the emphasis is on the food. It was so... More

We started with a Floc, the local Armagnac-based aperitif, and then had foie gras followed by the maigret de canard. We chose a Pic de Loup (grenache/syrah blend) to go along with the meal. Everything was absolutely perfect. Highly recommended.

We have been to Le Canard on many occasions over the past few years and it always provides excellent food and service. The presentation is something special and the fish delicious. Mattieau and Nicolas work hard to ensure all goes smoothly - wonderful attention to detail. Thank you so much and see you next time!

We sneaked in without reservations and boy were we lucky and in for a treat. No need to buy the foie at the market because it's plentiful and perfectly cooked here. It's even walking distance from the... More

The cuisine is excellent. The staff is friendly and accomodating. One little problem may be the seating..one tends to be tightly sitted.
