Ducks everywhere including feet framed on the ceiling! The food and service was excellent and we loved the quirky surroundings! Not fine dining but real good quality food and wine.

Our 3rd dinner in Paris - after two great meals we visited here. What a disappointment! The entrees of pate and terrine were poorly presented like a slab had been cut off the bulk reserves. The 'orange main had missed the orange somewhere and the magret was overcooked and subsequently tough. The salad was limp and the roast potatoes, praised in previous reviews, had been microwaved and were soft. But then why does such a restaurant have to have Beatles album covers as wall decorations?
If Sunday's are too hard better not to open!

We found this place after seeing it on one of Heston's programmes so thought we would give it a try. A few of our party ordered the duck a la orange after Heston gave it such a good review but were left rather disapointed. It was very sweet and sticky and just not nice. I however ordered the Confit de canard and I am so glad I did. It was really good. Crispy and melt in the mouth and the potatoes served along side were just lovely.

Good service, good rose wine. So all in all an evening of highs and lows.

This cosy little restaurant serves a good range of canard dishes. The food was excellent, service was a bit slow but I wasn't in a hurry. Good value but you might have some difficulty getting a table as it is obviously popular and there are not many tables. Worth trying though.

The place is not so big and looks a bit old-fashioned inside. But the food was very good. You can only eat duck but it is the best duck I ever ate. They have their own duck farm so it can't be fresher :-) Also nice guy to talk to so the atmosphere was also great.

If you like to eat duck this is the place you have to be in Paris.
