The newly reopened restaurant is family owned and we had the chance to meet the owners who made our experience at Le Bistrot Sud-Ouest et cie a delight! The menu is great, lunch and diner, everything is good. The Carpacio is amazing and the duck breast is to die for!
Seriously, don't miss out on Philippe and Thierry and adopt a duck (adoptezuncanard.com), make it travel the world, take pictures and post them on their facebook page!

We went to this hotel after the positive reviews on Tripadvisor. The service was attentive and the food decent but not as great as I was expecting. I had grilled duck which was garlicky and salty and my fiance had a bean stew which was I didn't like much but he polished it off. Definitely like home cooking and comfort style food.

The staff speaks French and English, are very welcoming and have a good sense of humor. Food is not top-notch, but very tasty. Wines are great and have very good prices.

Upon arrival the waiter brings rillettes of duck and bread. The menu has over 12 duck main dishes and an equal number of starters. With 1 lone non meat dish, vegetarians and PETA members should avoid Sud Ouest. Fois gras can be purchased by weight to take out! The duck pate starter is two large slabs of fatty heaven accompanied with a mason jar of crisp, tart cornichons. Slices of duck breast in cherry and berry sauce is a great choice; somehow in the US duck is never as succulent and tender as here. For dessert the profiterole is a large fist size cream puff stuffed with vanilla ice cream, smothered in velvety chocolate sauce and slivered almonds. The menu is excellent value for the money. Afterward you can waddle around the Montparnasse neighborhood or go home to sleep off the wonderful excess. Most of the diners were locals who clearly enjoy downhome SE French cooking. When we were there pig feet were featured as the plat du jour; they smelled delicious and were quickly devoured by the folks at the neighboring table.

After having experienced one of the worst dinner in Paris the night before, we really hoped that Sud-Oust would restore some of our faith with French cuisine. We came here last night based on a friend's recommendation and we're happy to say that it was worth crossing the bank for it. My duck breast with potatoes and mushrooms were dilicious. The potato and mushrooms were cooked simply with garlic and parsley. It did not need anything else. My husband's cassoulet was simple and not as spicy as we would like but nice anyway.

The price was surprisingly reasonable.

We would definitely go here again and perhaps try more items on the menu.
