The best meal. I had this visit. From the fig infused Foie Gras to the Duck Confit to the warm and friendly atmosphere. The bonus was the delicatessen attached to the restaurant. It is a must do!

Consistently excellent. Vegetarians will not be happy but carnivores, especially foodies will be delighted! Three types of fois gras, perfect duck, a toaster on the table...heaven on earth!

I visited the place for lunch after visiting the Eiffel tower. The setting is nice, decorations are also nice. However, the food was a complete disappointment. They offer duck in various stiles. I had the baked leg. It was half burned and really dry, like as if it was sitting prepared for 24-houres on the plate and was then just... More

If you're in Paris, you should give it a try once. During lunch hour it is not very busy (at least when I was there), but do reserve just in case (just like any other restaurants in Paris where reservations are very highly regarded). The foie gras is the star undeniably, tried both pan fried with apple and truffle. If... More

Best place in Paris to have duck. Being from the South-Ouest of France myself I can safely say this was just as good, if not better. Outstanding products and cooking. The setting is very warm and cosy, and each table has it's own toaster. We we're greeted by the owner, who kindly offered a taste of their incredible foies gras... More

Loved the cold foie gras pate. The foie gras panfried with truffles came a bit undercooked so I asked them to make it well-done and that was better. You can toast your own bread on the table which is different but fun!
