Real traditional gascon food

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... read 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

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

Delicious cuisine showcases produce from Landes, the Chalosse and the sea. Specialists of fois gras parfume de truffe et crevettes a la citronnelle. A good wine list from Bordeaux region. Elegant decor and confortable restaurant, very close to the metro station Daumesnil, Paris 12 and close to my house there.

Enjoyed pan seared foie gras, followed by sweetbread on spinach and a meringue desert. A nice traditional french haute cuisine meal with great Madiran red wine. Rather pricy, but then again this is a one star Michelin restaurant.

I took the menu prestige with 4 courses. The main course with roasted duck and panfried foie gras wasn't bad but was no match for the 2 delicious entrees (marinated scallops and lobster). Maybe it's a Monday night. There're not many customers in the restaurant and most customers were rather mature. It's a place where you come not for the... More
