A quaint restaurant with a limited menu serving strictly Parisian cuisine. Service was excellent and to top it off they serve one of the best Armagnac! It's also in one of their deserts : )

We always make a reservation to have at least one meal at this restaurant when in Paris. Chantal, her husband, and staff provide attentive service and a lovely wine selection to pair with delicious duck and goose dishes. My two favorites ...the fois gras complete with a toaster at the table to toast the bread and the apple tart dessert.

This place is run by a husband-wife team and specializes in products from the South West of France - primarily fois gras and confit de canard. And it's excellent. Don't count the calories though.

What a delightful place, located on a quiet street a short walk from the Eiffel Tower. They specialize in duck and goose products, like foie gras and pate, which you can buy fresh or canned in the little shop at the front. Keeping in mind the specialization of the cuisine, step inside for a meal to get the full experience.... More

We came across this restaurant after reading several highly rated reviews. From the moment we walked in, the service was impeccable. We were seated at the best table in the house, a cozy table with a window view. Unbeknownst to us, the owner, Chantal, seated and welcomed us, and later made outstanding recommendations. Per her recommendation, we ended up sharing... More

A great place to eat duck any way you like it, very close to the Tour Eiffel... We came without prior reservation, and got a table within 5 minutes. A meal perfectly prepared, duck was juicy, yet crispy on the outside. Dessert was top notch. Service was brisk and kind. Price is very reasonable, considering the high quality, and the... More

This restaurant and epicerie specialises, as it name suggests, with food from the South West of France which means primarily duck and goose. It is set in the expensive residential area around Champs de Mars. Entry to the restaurant is through the shop which sells Foie Gras and other delicacies. Two things are remarkable about APSO, one the prices are... More

I was last here 4 years ago on business and returned here with my wife for her birthday, which shows what an impression it made. I was immediately struck by the fact that it had doubled in size and was still packed out, a tribute to the consistent quality of food and service over the years. Despite the success, monsieur...

Visited this charming restaurant that specialized in duck confit. There were electric toasters on every table so one could slather their duck pate appetizer onto freshly heated bread. The highlight, of course, was the duck confit which had a delightfully crisp skin while the flesh was savory, juicy and succulent. Just go there.

Went and had lunch here while I was wandering around Paris doing my last minute errands before heading home (which means shopping for wine and chocolate of course). It was chilly so I desperately needed some cassoulet and this place came well recommended -- and they also specialize in all things "Southwest" France -- which also means pates and foie... More
