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!

Lovely lunch, warm ambience, and the owner is the most gracious hostess. We had foie gras, duck, salad with mushrooms, cassoulet (my fav), and bread that we got to toast ourselves on our own adorable tabletop toaster (each table has a toaster and little wooden tongs). All this paired perfectly with wine recommended by the owner. Judging by the location... More

My wife and I have tested a lot of foie gras in our life. But the 3-foie gras suggestions brought us to foie gras heaven. The service is great. The lady is very friendly.

Cozy restaurant, great variety of pate cooked in different ways. The tosters on the tables were absolutely a nice touch. Very welcoming service and very good wine list. When I go back to Paris, i will visit it again!!

We ate here in 2014, and had a wonderful meal, so we returned (twice!) on our recent visit to Paris, and it was still outstanding! The foie gras with truffles was amazing, as was the duck gizzard salad, duck confit and the cassoulet (according to my husband, who fancies himself a cassoulet expert). The service was exceptional, and the wines... More
