Dear guests we will be closing our location at Spitalfields on the 2nd May and will reopen on 27 Clerkenwell Road EC1M 5RN on the 9th May. Inspired by the "douceur de vivre" of Gascony, Monsieur Le Duck brings the food and wine of South-West France to the heart of London. Our simple yet perfectly formed menu centres around duck that is being brought in to London especially for us, alongside classic French sides, desserts and wine. The brainchild of three frequent travellers to Gascony, Monsieur Le Duck provides a portal to the French heartland of relaxed eating and drinking.

Lacked Ambience, staff overcompensated for this. Food was nice but not enough choice on the menu.

Great meal at Monsieur Le Duck. A lovely atmosphere with great food and a good selection of drinks. I thought the alcohol was slightly more expensive than it should have been (most notably the sparkling wine), however difficult to find fault. We will definitely be returning.

Really cool place, with high standard service. I only put 4 out of 5 as I thought the duck magret on the sharing board was a bit bland compared to the one we ordered separately. Other than that all was great.

The room is industrial lovely, the staff are charming and if it’s duck you want to eat then yummy duck you shall have. The mixed green salad is perfect in the way only the french seem to do. And the frites are just as they should be. Can recommend the rhubarb gin cocktail.

Fantastic food - as long as you like duck! Best chips I’ve had I ages, and believe me I eat a lot of chips. The restaurant is a lovely space, with nice design touches. Service was friendly if a little slow, but it was early days in the new site so I’m sure they’ll get up to speed.

Slightly pricey for what you get (no sides included) chargrilled duck breast was tasty as was the confit duck leg, and this was also softer to eat, but both were very salty. Some heartier sides like mash and a rich sauce would be welcome.
Service good, although slightly ott (no need to really go through everything on the menu). Would go again if there was a deal on.

Informal but delicious dinner at a very good price. I'm already looking forward to trying their new venue when it opens in May with an expanded menu. In the meantime go for the Le Grand Jeu for a taste of everything. The confit was my favourite but my other half loved the pan roasted breast the most.

It's duck, of course. You have to like duck. If you do, you'll have a great dinner here. The pan-fried breast and confit leg are excellent. The grilled breast nearly as good as it's pan-fried counterpart; the duck burger ok, but really -- it's not why you go for duck, is it? The meal starts with a very refreshing mixed salad. The duck fat butter is yummy on the bread. The puy lentils are great, as are the green beans. Nothing wrong with the chips, but nothing special about them, either. Quite a drinkable pays d'oc red as well.

The place is noisy. That's about the only downside. You're unlikely to come here every week, but when you're hankering for duck -- don't hesitate.
