“Disappointing”
Reviewed May 20, 2012

My first time in Almaty wanted an error-free dinner. Had salad and entrecote, in good French restaurants you can't go wrong with those selections. Brie salad was very average, but entrecôte was disappointing, not by the way it was cooked but about the quality of the meat. When asked by waitress how meat was, we told them the truth and she apparently went to the kitchen to inquire. She replied that meat in this country is like this and that can't get any better. When one pays 35 Euros per head for a salad, steak and a beer with a shared dessert, one expects a better reaction or detail by the management. Nothing was granted so that is why I cannot recommend this place and only give an average,

“Faultless”
Reviewed May 4, 2012 via mobile

I went to visit my friend here in Almaty and we decided to go to this new restaurant. The food was excellent I didn't have horse for years and I decided to have it again. It was cook perfectly, and the bitter chocolate sauce was excellent the dessert are exceptional. Franck the chef and owner came to see us at the end of the meal and he brings a lot of French touch to that place. If you play or Played rugby the place to be !!!!!

“Tasty food and good service. Refreshing!”
Reviewed April 30, 2012

Simple French fare, great meat dishes - particularly the entrecôte and the lamp cutlets. Decent wines by the glass. The service is friendly and there is some English spoken. I always enjoy going to this little restaurant on Shevchenko St. The front terrace in now open and this would be the perfect place to sit on a summer's afternoon or evening.

“The Best French Restaurant in Almaty”
Reviewed February 1, 2012

If you enter to French restaurant in any City other than cities of France,and you hear only French speaking around,that means ,that this is a really good French Restaurant!
La Grenouille is a best example of it!
Very good Ratatouille,frogs legs. And the warm liver salad is highly recommended.
