We read the reviews but were nevertheless attracted by the thought of duck and foie gras. Alas, the menu was unimaginative (remember or u-tube the Peter Cook and Dudley Moore Frog and Peach sketch). Worse. the food was poorly cooked and/or bland. So much so that the quality of the original produce could not be ascertained. It probably wouldn't have... More

This restaurant was booked solid for dinner while we were in Paris. We were able to get in for lunch. The foie gras with truffle sauce was great. The duck and goose confit were fantastic. The service is friendly and very helpful with not only their menu, but also gave some us some recommendations around Paris. Chantel is wonderful and... More

I came here with rather high expectation when I read all the great reviews. I had all the typical dishes on top of a duck gizzard salad and scrambled eggs with truffles. The taste is just average at best and some of the salad leaves are not that fresh. It is not bad but just not that good. Nevertheless, people... More

I love this place. I made a reservation (a must, it was packed) online while still in the US. When my fiance and I arrived, I recognized both the owner and his lovely wife from the website. The wife remembered that we were from New Orleans and was so incredibly sweet. Our waiter was hysterical. We laughed non-stop when he... More

One of the best meals I had in Paris. Must a try! The atmosphere is small and cozy and making a reservation is highly recommended. The duck was made to perfection--soft and melt in your mouth on the inside with a light crisp on the outside. I thought I hated duck, but my opinion has changed since going to this... More

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
