Nice location right in the centre of town, good value for money as you get 3course menu for 20E but worst service I have seen in a very long time. Just one waitress to attend 30 customers, she couldn't even bother to explain the difference between dishes, extremely patronising and rude. And on top of that she dropped a glass... More

Not a particularly big duck fan unless it's Peking Duck, this place was great. My wife had the duck in orange and the sauce was not sweet but very piquant which she loved, and I had the breast fillet with a green peppercorn which was not overpowering and allowed the duck flavour to dominate. Couldn't fault it.

I'm giving this restaurant a 5 simply because every single mouthful was full of flavour and every element was cooked perfectly. I had grilled (and sliced) duck breast with a margaret sauce, potatoes and carrots... simply to die for. While the food isn't art on a plate, that isn't what I came here for, which was delicious and well-priced food... More

I had read the reviews of this restaurant, and being a lover of duck, decided to give it a try. My wife and I were not disappointed. The service was friendly and efficient and the food was very good. From a set menu my wife ordered a warm goat cheese salad as a starter, followed by sliced duck breast, roasted... More

We arrived a little early for French dinnertime but the restaurant filled up while we were there. The one waiter was friendly, efficient and busy but he kept all the diners happy. If you like duck you'll love the menu! Duck confit, duck breast, duck gizzards, fois gras, it's all there for the eating. The veg/potatoes that come with the... More

A small unpretentious duck specialist restaurant less than 200 metres from the Place Capitole. Most tables are outside in a small narrow lane which has wall to wall restaurants serving meals priced between €12 and €20. My wife had Duck l'Orange which was marvellous. I had the Duck Cassoulet which came in a earthenware casserole dish containing slow cooked duck,... More

We stumbled on this quiet restaurant while exploring the neighbourhood. The staff was friendly and arranged a table for us outside on the street. We ordered several menus and the food arrived promptly. The rosé was of terrible quality : very acid and tart The salads were not great tasting and had too much dressing The French oignon soup used... More

We went on a Friday night. The restaurant was packed, the sevice was excellent, the food was good and the quality/quantity/price was excellent! Our waiter was very efficient and so nice. Rustic decorations inside with the possibility to eat outside in the cute cobblestone alleyway. Would definitely eat here again the next time I'm in Toulouse!!

I visited this restaurant more out of curiosity, and boy did it pay off. The restaurant specializes in duck. I was torn between the canarde al orange and the cassoulet. Having had cassoulet just two days prior, I was leaning towards the canarde al orange, but the waiter gave an unequivocal recommendation for the cassoulet, so I ordered it. I... More

A nice little restaurant with a good atmosphere. The food was above average and I loved the salade gourmande although I'm still not a large fan of Fois Graś. The cassoulet was also very tasty and I liked the duck leg and sausage. Maybe a bit too much beans for my taste. My mates also liked their duck breast and... More
