Not perfect, perhaps the service was a bit slow, but all is forgiven when you consider the amount of tables that just two soldiering waiters had to attend. A Charismatic bloke and charming lady, it was hard not to forgive them for a minor wait....More

Such a welcoming restaurant with some classic local cuisine such as duck, duck and more duck. So if you like duck or parts of duck then you must go here. In a very touristy area but a refreshingly authentic restaurant.

If you are looking for authentic food and friendly service you will not be disappointed. Duck is prepared in many ways, so you are not obliged to have it in its usual form.

Went there after a Tour de France stage and was really happy. Big portions of every part of the duck, great wine and friendly staff. The chef even came out to serve us some after work shots. Would highly recommend this place in Pau!

I had a wonderful dinner at Le Canard Royal, the fois gras and the maigret de canard were stunning, as was the staff. The ambiance is relaxing, and the price was very good compared to the food and service. Recommended

I guess the people raving about this restaurant must be duck lovers - and this restaurant basically only serves duck recipes. I've eaten duck in several places over the world (so I am not a "first timer") and I was not impressed. The presentation of...More

Wow. This place is a must do when in Pau, or even nearby. Easy to get a reservation, excellent and attentive service, copious serving sizes without sacrificing quality, and beautiful presentation.

The restaurant "Le Canard Royal" (The Royal Duck) offers original, sophisticated and gourmet dishes based on French South West products. Probably the best place in Pau to discover authentic regional products and unique recipes created by our talented chef. A daily menu is suggested from monday to friday with a gourmet and varied cuisine.
