Lonely Planet review

Nine varieties of frogs’ legs are served at the time-worn institution ‘Roger the Frog’. À la Provençale is with tomato, Orientale sees the pin-sized legs spiced with pine kernels and fresh mint, while Indienne has a splash of curry. If you’re squeamish about devouring Roger and his mates, dishes like roast pheasant with dried figs are also on the menu.

Frog sculptures and statues scatter throughout the restaurant, along with B&W pictures of 1920s Paris on the whitewashed walls and an array of old lamps illuminating the low sepia-coloured ceiling.
