I like the food here and have always had a great time. The decor is a bit "not French". Staff are friendly, speak enough English and the chef is always around to keep the guests happy. Reasonably priced also

Went last week and they had just two of six red wines from their wine list. Guess which two? The most expensive, of course -- at least $70 per bottle. What is a French meal without decent wine? Either be truthful on the menu or change it.

A real French chef. The food is remarkable, the atmosphere very nice, a kind of frenchie based international fusion animated by the local French expat community, definitely a change from the local culture. Don't miss The Frog!

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,

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 !!!!!
