This is where I ate one of the best meals ever and the best meal in Paris so far, no doubt. The place is fully booked every night yet still the atmosphere is small and cosy. The owner spends time talking in every table which was very nice. The place specialises in foie gras and duck and I must say... More

The women I was traveling with are foie gras lover so based on the reviews we chose this charming spot. Au Petit Sud Ouest was wonderful! The owners welcomed us as if we were old friends and the food was fantastic, I especially enjoyed the duck. It was very busy and not very big, so I would highly recommend making... More

I recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants to eat a traditional French meal in a warm, friendly environment. The couple that own this restaurant are wonderful and work hard to please. We had friends without reservations whom they slipped in at the beginning of dinner service. The menu is wonderful. Even if you think you don't like duck or... More

I am a foie gras lover so when my husband and I went to Paris recently someone recommended a little restaurant near the Eiffel Tower called Au Petit Sud Ouest (The Little South West). I looked at reviews here and decided to try it. I'm so glad I did! We had the grilled foie gras with black truffle oil as... More

My husband and me celebrated our 10th anniversary in this restaurant during a weekend in Paris. I had called to make a reservation and we were at the time greated by both owners. Chantal is enchanting. She adjusts easily to her clients and so she spoke perfect English with my husband while we spoke French (a bit slow though ;-).... More

If the name left any doubt, the retro toasters on each table signal that this place is all about fois gras. Do no think about skipping (or even skimping on the) the starters --- mostly varieties of excellent goose and duck pate fois gras served on warm toast thanks to the convenient toasters. We loved both the fois gras d’Oie... More

I love seared foie gras and this place was the piece de resistance for foie gras. They serve it cold and hot. But, what's most unique is that there is a toaster on each table for warm toasty bread to place your foie gras across! Mmmm.

Got in here late on a Friday night, it's such a romantic place to go for dinner. Great view of the Eiffel Tower from the nearby streets. The food was amazing, the orange duck was to die for and the Foie Gras was outstanding and was beautiful to eat. Service was great too. Highly recommended for lovers of duck. Went... More

Great food, wine, and service! We made reservations here off of trip adviser reviews and it did not disappoint. Great overall experience and adventurous food...for me. Would highly recommend!
