An attractive and unusual setting, foie gras was good sadly they were out of Ris de Veau but I had a steak tartare which was superb. We felt the cheese was slightly disappointing but overall a thoroughly enjoyable evening and a place one would definitely visit again.

We came for dinner with friends at the end of a stay in nearby Marestaing. and were very impressed with the menu which included such delights as Noix St Jaques wrapped in lardons on a cannelloni filled with ricotta cheese. There was a great number of menu options offering one two or three courses, all sensibly priced for such fine... More

Original interior. Very attentive staff (but please don't talk with each other about guests when other guests can hear!). Food was good, but foie gras was not best quality and sauce going with pigeon can be more refined. Aiguilles de canard were without taste. The last remaining taste was completely flattenef by a heavy honey sauce.

I have eaten at this restaurant for well over 15 years, and I can tell you they have improved steadily over this period, while prices have hardly moved at all. If you love excellent food within a "normal" price range you will not be disappointed.

Our family stayed at the Au Canard Gourmand during our son's recent wedding. The food at the restaurant was delicious and the staff was especially helpful during our entire stay. I would highly recommend both the hotel and the restaurant. Thank you!

If you want to have a great duck meal in a funky place then look no further. This place has also a garden which is small but is very nice in a hot summer. You can park in their car park which is handy too.

Having been here several times I was very disappointed with the meal last night. The last time we came it was absolutely fantastic, sophisticated and delicious. But this time we asked ourselves if it was the same chef. The presentation was clumsy and the food tasteless. I had the trout which was swimming in a sea of cream with some... More
