Le Canard Royal, empire of the web-footed bird

In Pau, this restaurant is dedicated to serving duck, from confit to liver and fillet.

Duck lovers, here is a spot for you! Located near the castle, Le Canard Royal reveals authentic southwestern French cuisine, where the poultry is offered in a wide range of recipes. Set within the exposed-stone walls of formerly known "Chez Coin-Coin" ("At Quack-Quack's") establishment, and with duck already in the spotlight, the restaurant cultivates local ingredients and skills, which chef Jérôme Martinez uses to prepare traditional dishes. Everything is homemade, including the ice creams and sorbets on the dessert menu.

In the refined dishes, you'll find the famous royal cassoulet, various types of foie gras, the duck breast fillet with raspberries, as well as the duck rib in persillade with old-fashioned potatoes, or the Rossini breast fillet with cep and girolle mushrooms.

If you cannot make up your mind, a mixed fricassee will surely help, blending fillets, strips and hearts into one full meal, served with cep mushrooms or chopped parsley and garlic. End on another local note with sheep's cheese from the Pyrenees and its black cherry jam. A true anthology of southwestern cuisine!
