Great steak and curry (especially the lamb) and rum bananas.We have been coming to this restaurant for years and are very sad Froggy's is closing. We will miss it.

As other's have said Forggy is a legend on the West Coast. Sadly he has recently sold the the building and the restaurant will shortly close. Originally Froggy was in Cape Town and came to the West Coast some fifteen years ago. First he was at Zizzi's and he set up on his own account approximately 15 years ago as... More

We were very surprised to find such great curries in this small restaurant in langebaan. Would definitely recommend the lamb curry. If in the area, definitely worth a visit.

My wife and I had a great dinner at this restaurant. The food was really good but the service was slow. Took 40 min to get a drink but in the end was worth the wait.

Froggy, the owner and head chef is a legend on the western cape, everybody knows this place. Froggy and his able assistant Jana are a joy to behold and offer great service and the best food in Langebaan. Booking is always recommended to avoid disappointment. The restaurant is open if Froggy has bookings, simple as that. I have lived and... More

Been working in the area for the last year and have been in every restaurant in Langebaan and without doubt the best food in Langebaan. His fillet is extraordinary, his lamb shank superb and the Thai Green Curry the best I've tasted. Froggy, assisted by Yana provide a unique service and her Dom Pedro is to die for.

Froggy might not be the cheapest restaurant in Langebaan but surely have the best food by far. It is a small restaurant and the German owner himself is dishing up a feast.

After roaming the streets for a while the smell of braised lamb-shanks saw me sauntering to this establishment. When ordering I skipped the shanks, had the asparagus starter, mussels with extra pernod and a tail wagging Thai Curry. Lovely place with friendly service and good food.

Froggy's is described as Fine Dining, but in my option it's not (maybe compared to other more rustic restaurants in Langebaan yes). A restaurant that has the cutlery in a tin on the table is not fine dining. The food was ok, but again in my option was built up in such a big way by the waitress, it did... More

We had a lovely meal at Froggy's: my mussel soup starter was very generous, but I'd have like to have tasted the Pernod in the sauce. Unfortunately we were not advised of the asparagus starter which was on special that night; we overheard it being offered to guests who arrived after us. (Unfortunately, as I'd eaten so many mussels on... More
