Excellent traditional french

Enjoyed pan seared foie gras, followed by sweetbread on spinach and a meringue desert. A nice traditional french haute cuisine meal with great Madiran red wine. Rather pricy, but then again this is a one star Michelin restaurant.

We enjoyed another superb dinner in this fine restaurant. From the duck confit to the fig tart it was an exceptional meal! I cannot wait to return!

I took the menu prestige with 4 courses. The main course with roasted duck and panfried foie gras wasn't bad but was no match for the 2 delicious entrees (marinated scallops and lobster). Maybe it's a Monday night. There're not many customers in the restaurant and most customers were rather mature. It's a place where you come not for the... More

My wife and I invited 2 French friends to join us for dinner at Au Trou Gascon last evening. It was the first time there for them, and the first time in many years for us. From the very beginning, even before the restaurant was (mostly) full, the service coming out of the kitchen was so slow I had to... More

The cuisine is very creative and excellent. The way to mix some calamri with pork and reinvented piperade is amazingly good; the Cassoulet is fantastic. there two things which deserve some improvement: a/ there is no Valet and in this section of Paris, this may become a serious problem if you go by car (best is to park at Gare...

My son and I enjoyed a spectacular meal at Au Trou Gascon. From the warm greeting at the door to our final farewell, everything was just perfect. The neutral hues of the dining room provided a soothing setting for our meal. We both began with asparagus, which was perfectly cooked and served with a delicate emulsion. My main course, cassoulet,... More

This is a great little neighbor restaurant that has a nice ambiance , a combination of classic and modern art and neutral colored walls that work the space in a lovely fashion. Unlike others, I have always had top rate friendly service and I am sure it is not because 'Je parle francais comme une parisienne' Non…everyone seems to be... More

I know Au Trou Gascon since many years and go regularly for lunch when I get back my car from Autotrain at Gare Bercy :-) So I know it mostly from lunch, which is an excellent offer, but have been also for dinner which is still a good offer, knowing prices in Paris. I feel very well served in this... More

We wanted to take friends to a place they'd never been before and, as it happened, we selected a restaurant we'd, also, never been to before. Au Trou Gascon turned out to be a perfect selection for all of us. We thoroughly enjoyed the food, which is Basque-based, and the wine list is extensive and very reasonably-priced. The service is...

I agree with several others here. The fabled, and not cheap, cassoulet was average. The decor comfortable but bare-bones. And we must have had the same silly young serveur as others --- when he brought the cheese tray or cart, I said (in French) "so what do we have here" expecting a description of the specific varieties. He said, "It... More
