I went to Au Trou Gascon with the French Family I was staying with back in June of 1987. It was one of the very first times I had ever had Sauteed Foie Gras with White Asparagus tips..it was heaven on a plate. The restaurant was elegant and old French. The service was very good, and the food exquisite! 29... More

I have been going to this restaurant for decades. It has always been one of my favorite in Paris. It has a reputation for delivering a high level of quality in both food and service while giving Parisians a source for the traditional cooking from the southwest of France. Over the years I have sampled fabulous examples of duck confit,... More

I came here based on a review by Patricia Wells. This is a restaurant with 12 tables of varying sizes. Tonight, 4 were solo diners and many diners were French. The individual courses I had were well prepared and delicious. A few things I found odd - green olives served with the aperitif, the staff did not know where the... More

Typical ambience of a fancy French Michelin star place, but it’s quite small by the way. We went there for a Christmas dinner. It was a ready menu set. So we could choose only our wine and drinks to accompany the food, everything else was previously decided by the Chef. Dinner started with a small amuse bouche. Then came out... More

Au Trou Gascon has been one of my favorite restaurants in the world for many years. My wife and I hosted a dinner there earlier this month that, unfortunately, has caused me to change my opinion. Both the food and service were not close to what we had experienced during many earlier visits. The servers seemed overwhelmed by a full... More

This is a restaurant like they were in the past. - no fancy trendy design, but a simple and classical layout. - the food is sophisticated and traditional, with a large choice - the service is excellent and not intrusive. This is a restaurant where food, and not design, in the focus. It is a good opportunity to taste delicious... More

We had a great meal at Au Trou Gascon. They offer a variety of entrees - ranging from traditional French to more eclectic dishes. I ordered the duck confit and had the best duck confit I have ever had (and I have had alot). I would highly recommend it if you go!

I was in Paris for business and looked for a good place to eat on Monday (mission almost impossible). Found this great restaurant very close to the station. Service, atmosphere (at lunch very business wise) and the food. Lunch menu is also very affordable €42 for 3 course menu.

This place has earned its Michelin star honestly. Beginning with a tasty amuse bouche, it continued with an exciting pairing of two preparations of fois gras. I cannot identify the means of presentation, but I can certainly say I have never experienced the like. The main course was an incredible lamb, served with roquefort raviolis, a pairing I had never... More
