We came here looking for the authentic French experience and was not disappointed. They do only serve duck and goose, so be prepared for that. The service was exceptional and felt like we were eating in a friends home. We were lucky to slip in without reservations, but the place filled up quickly and there was a wait for the entire night. Make advance reservations!

Fourth visit in past ten years, this is a highly consistent if predictable restaurant for duck affianados. Everything you could want in the duck realm, served by a friendly and helpful staff. Not to be missed if duck is what you need on the menu.

If you prefer a cozy and relaxed atmosphere and fancy duck or goose then this is for you. We started the foie gras sampler which was simply the best I have ever had (especially the rare variety). Next came the duck confit with the crispest most flavorful skin imaginable; all washed down with their beer blanc. Charming service from our hostess topped it all off!

If you love Duck and Goose this is the place for you, if not you’ll be disappointed. My wife and I took our eldest daughter here on Saturday as she is working in Paris, after we were seated we were give a plate of Saucisson to enjoy with our Kir. We started the meal with the foie gras which was superb and the 2/3 person portion was more than enough, each table has its one toaster so you always have warm toast. For mains, our daughter had Duck a l’orange, my wife had the confit duck and I had the confit goose all were cooked perfectly and served by a happy and enthusiastic team. We went with their house red which is from their own estate, excellent wine and only €26. My wife’s pudding of Chiboust au pomme was also outstanding. This is not a “fine dining” type of restaurant with the food delivered under cloches by unsmiling waiters, it is great traditional food from the south west of France served by people who really want you to enjoy your evening.

This cannot be one of the best restaurants in Paris. Unless you just really, really, really love duck. Just about every dish includes duck. Food was decent, service was good, atmosphere was ok. It's really close to the Eiffel Tower, which is nice. But overall, I was disappointed.
