“Great food but a bit slow ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

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.

“The best place to eat in Langebaan”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

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 worked in this area for about 9 months and sampled everything on the menu and nothing disappointed. My favourites are the Oxtail or Lamb Curry, both are described on the menu as served Medium, Hot or F Hot. Never got to try the F. Hot. Other favourites of mine are the Lamb Shank or the Steak (which is matured wonderfully by Froggy to always ensure it is beautifully tender).

“The best food in Langebaan”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

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.

“The Best Food in Langebaan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

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.

“Good ol Froggy's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

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.
