I cannot imagine having anything but foie gras here. It is on every element of the menu except for dessert. They are makers and purveyors of foie gras. It was close to 100F that day, so I had a salad with fois gras and duck done three different ways, a glass of nice wine, and a dessert (three types of... More

If you like quality foie gras and are also health then please eat here. My husband is a fastidious eater. He's not so much health conscious as quality conscious (although he is petit at 6'1" and 160-165 pounds). The portions were not small but modest so we didn't overeat (good for mommy'a waistline). Most everything was organically sourced and fresh... More

The most amazing restaurant for duck and foie gras. Throughout my travels around the world I have never come across a restaurant that serves duck in the manner they do. When my whole duck breast arrived I thought they had served me a filet mignon, tender juicy and cooked to perfection. Service was impeccable and the cleanliness of the restaurant,... More

Fresh pan fried goose n duck liver for dinner. The livers melted in the mouth. Yes they were oily but they were fragrant! You will enjoy them in various styles. I had it in apple paste. Very very yummy. The goose leg was good too, though i prefer the fresh livers more but i needed to fill my stomach. The... More

This delightful restaurant is very near the Eiffel Tower but seems a world apart in atmosphere. It gives you the feeling of being in a true Parisian neighborhood spot complete with the owners doing the cooking and serving. It features the rich food of the southwest with lots of fois gras and duck dishes. We stuck with the latter which... More

One of our priorities on any visit to Paris is finding superb duck confit. After 5-6 attempts ranging from dismal to very good, we reveled in finding an outstanding rendition of this classic dish in Au Petit Sud Ouest. We began with a totally decadent dish of seared foie gras with shaved truffles, so delicious it was beyond description. Each... More

The first time I went to the Au Petit Sud Ouest was back in 2014. I liked so much that I felt that, should I go back to Paris, I must go there again. So I went, and it´s always a pleasure. Both hostes and hostess are very friendly, and happy doing their job. The canard is great, and the... More

Came with high expectations. Saw many other customers were Asian too. I would have preferred the duck confit to be less dry, and less fat. A suggestion: since everything is duck, the restaurant could consider offering a duck consommé on their menu.
