It was a Goose in the South West

I was attracted  by this really cute name at the first time, Il Était une Oie dans le Sud Ouest, in English It means it was a Goose in the South West. As the name indicates, this restaurant is the specialist of the cuisine southwest in France.

Before I went to this restaurant, I made a reservation online because no one answered the phone. Unfortunately, I couldn’t receive the conformation email, so I decided to go there directly.

15.pic_hdMy friend and I arrived the restaurant at around 8:30 pm., the restaurant had already full of people. I surprisingly found that my reservation was successfully booked online, but we were late about 1 hour. We were not supposed to have a site at the beginning, but after I explained the problem they arranged us a place immediately.Their staffs are very enthusiastic. They patiently explained us every “today’s special dishes” and smiled all the time. Their staffs are very enthusiastic.
