I had the chance to dine at this old and popular Bistro in Paris. I've been told it is very famous for its frogs and as I love this food I though was a great experience to live...and indeed it was! Food is great and also service is good. The restaurant is quite tiny therefore booking is highly recommended

Roger la Grenouille is a classic french restaurant. Don't look for fancy food. Don't look for deconstructed silly dishes. Only classic well cooked French Food. This is the kind of restaurants for the real food lover. This is not a place for a modern food blogger looking only for a new review. This is one of my favourite places in... More

We went to this place to try the frog dishes as it is famous for thiee courses, overall this is a great place for this purpose as it serves few but the classic frog courses. The waiters were very nice and explained us helpful. The place is very special as it was established in the 1930's.

Restaurant location and old fashion decoration are nice, in one of the most charming area of Paris. Expensive. A very short list of dishes, everything fresh. But at 9:30pm (very early for a restaurant in Paris), half of the dishes were missing. Eggs with mushrooms to recommend. Baba au Rhum to avoid, watery despite the Rhum. Service not professional.

I had never tried frog legs before going to Roger la Grenouille I guess it is one of the few places the sells it consistently. The décor was a throwback to another era. The service was cold and unfriendly. The frog legs were prepared well and very tasty but they were really expensive. It was 35 dollars for a large... More

Provençal cooking. Family operated or at least it seems. Frog legs many different ways. Delicious. Rest of menu correct. Expensive but portions are large. Decoration traditional but cozy and fun. Wine list ok.
