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

The restaurant has doubled in size since our last visit in November 2011 by expanding into the space next door. Nicely done renovations. It was much busier at dinner in mid-July than in November. But the service and food was as excellent as before. We sampled both the duck and goose mi-cuit foie gras as starters. Both were excellent but... More

We made reservations for our last Friday night in Paris (July 4). I chose it based on the reviews in Trip Advisor. It did not disappoint. Neither my husband nor I speak french. The staff was extremely helpful. We've had foie gras in the states but we're overwhelmed with the choices on the menu. We asked our waiter for his... More

You need to go there! I was really surprised with so good food and it's so close to Eiffel Tower. Foie gras, and desserts - are the best one. Definetely we will go back here. If you want to eat - you need to make a reservation before, bacause it's a little bit crowded. Staff is very helpful and symphatic... More

This was our first stop in Paris! Delicious Foie Gras melting on fresh toast (right out of your own table toaster). Had a nice Duck breast main, my wife enjoyed the smoked duck salad as a main. Well worth the visit!
