Amazing food, service, ambience and wine list. If you like duck and foie gras, you will love this place. You are not going to get a better (duck) meal at any where near this price (dinner for two--Euro 65 + wine) in Paris. Food: The menu is heavily focused on foie gras (the staff will explain the differences of the... More

After extensive research on TripAdvisor, I decided to take my fiancee to Au Petit Sud Ouest to celebrate our engagement. I had proposed just 5 minutes prior near the Eiffel Tower and needed somewhere local and savvy to celebrate. I reserved a week ahead and was greeted with warm smiles and pleasantries. We were given English menus and the two... More

‘Au Petit Sud Ouest’ is a very tread of the mill type mediocre restaurant. It has an old fashioned bread toaster on every table, as a gimmick, which only takes up a lot of space on your tiny table. The idea is, that you have freshly made toast for yourself, with your foi gras, but stays there all evening, even... More

A really thrilling culinary experience!! Honestly, this fantastic place gets 5 stars just for the BEST foie gras appetizer I've ever had (look at the pic...don't you just want to sleep in this bed of yum???)...but there's more...the duck confit with potatoes and mushrooms was superlative & the finale cheese plate was scrumptious....and look for the table side toasters to...

One of the few places that repeatedly meets and exceeds the expectations created by its reputation. Excellent food, a very nice selection of regional wines, friendly service...and all that in the center of Paris. Terribly enjoyed the foie gras poelé et pommes fruits as a starter, followed by the magret de canard aver pommes sautées et cepes. The regional wine,... More

For the entrée we had a "Bloc of semi cooked duck foie gras" and for the mains We had the "Confit duck leg with fried potatoes" and the "Whole duck breast with fried potatoes and mushrooms". Everything was fantastic! Not having had foie gras before, we looked a bit silly attempting the spread it onto the toasted bread provided -... More

I brought my Chinese in laws to this restaurant after being recommended by friends and I wasn't disappointed! Service is more than good, really caring and surprisingly friendly for Paris standard! The food will clog up your arteries for sure but you are being warned: the cuisine is from south western France, so expect goose, duck and more duck... In... More

This is a very fun place. Packed, reservations essential. Fun couple run it and it has a very casual feel, but good food and pleasant and very efficient service. We all had the foie gras mixed starter and for the two with celiac disease in our party, they had gluten-free dark bread. Although not a lot of choices that are... More

My fiancé took me here on my birthday trip to Paris. She did her research and found this absolute gem of a restaurant. They specialise in duck, as the name suggests and everything about our visit was exceptional. The husband and wife owners and their daughter made us feel so welcome, explained dishes on the menu (in English) and suggested... More

They say Paris is for lovers and it IS the most romantic city in the world-no doubt about it so take your loved one here and she will never forghet it! My moules, pate, duck, steak. cheese, grapes, sorbet, cognac and coffee was all delicious. Two bottles of Sauvignon and my partner's meal all came to 162 Euros. A beautiful... More
