We went here with one goal only - to try the frog legs. It was actually really good. The restaurant feels cosy, the waitress was friendly, overall great experience!

It’s hard to find frog legs in restaurants anymore, so when I found this place I knew I had to go. We were seated right away at 7 on a Saturday night—the top floor was booked but we got a table in the basement. The...More

We had high expectations, but it was not as expected. The staff is not friendly, not a very cosy place to enjoy your dinner. The menu is limited, they're famous for the frog legs which were good, but the garlic was too present for us.More

Seriously I have never tried frogs before and this is such a wonderful experience, I really loved it. The service was kind and gave us a lot of good advice, the food was delicious and it’s perfectly located. Definitely a must go in Paris.
