From acclaimed chef Adam Handling, The Frog in Ely’s Yard Spitalfields showcases his distinctive cooking style in a relaxed setting. Combining the best possible produce with a lightly theatrical touch, innovative dishes are served for brunch, lunch and dinner.

As well as a la carte dishes, The Frog offers a daily changing, 5-course tasting menu, packed with exciting flavour combinations and cooking techniques. The food menu is matched by the drinks list, which features craft beers from selected micro-breweries, new age wines from young winemakers, curated cocktails and even in-house made kombucha.

With artwork by young artists exhibited on the walls, the interior sees industrial design features joined by eclectic soft furnishings and a wooden-topped bar.

    We had the tasting menu and you get a lot of courses with food you will not have eaten before. All wonderful. Bread with chicken butter - butter that tastes and smells of roast chicken. It is amazing. Hard to fault anything

    You're in London so of course it isn't cheap but it is well worth it.

    - Food was good, well cooked and showed flair. The salmon with frozen peas (dry ice) starter was tender and delicious. Our entire dinner party loved dessert. Unfortunately this was spoiled by the constant 'selling' displayed by the staff.

    - Coffee after dinner had to be remade several times; it was very bitter and served cold.

    - We were overcharged twice. Once with the bill being rung up incorrectly. Then again, when we were paying the waiter, he overcharged us. The second overcharge was a small amount and most probably a genuine mistake by the waiter, but we had already gone through a £16 mistake on the 1st bill which seemed to take quite long to resolve and involved bar staff then a manager. Props to the waiter for running around like that, we werent trying to be cheap - just paying for the product we ordered.

    I would recommend again, based on food, but would upfront in saying its a restaurant intent on great food coupled with casual (somewhat immature) service. Sadly, the service is what lets the frog down and prevents it from being 5/5

    We had the tasting menu which was excellent. Our favourites were all fish dishes, beetroot beetroot and tartar, chorizo/cheese, porky with cauliflower were stunning. Choice of crockery turned the dishes into pieces of art. The kitchen staff and the service were excellent and very obliging to help us enjoy our meal within the limited time we had. Food was an absolute star in this unpretentional and comfortable interior. We hope to be back one day

    I went for the wine pairing and my boyfriend had the beer pairing. We both had the taster menu. The first 4 dishes were fantastic. All the flavours were so good. I loved the cod to start, then the BBQ beef (my boyfriend said tasted like monster munch!) but we both very much enjoyed that. The cheese and chorizo I could of had 5 of them in a row and then the chicken butter.... just delicious! For me the apple salad was just ok, it was fresh and I very much liked the wine that came out with it. The celeriac dish was earthy which I loved but the texture was quite different which I appreciated but it was probably my least favourite taste wise. The hake... omg fantastic. I loved that when I put the food close to my mouth, I could inhale the vinegar yet when I began to eat it, the vinegar wasn't an over powering flavour. Delicious and one of my favourites. Burnt piggy was good, but at this point I was getting quite full and I found this dish a bit heavy. The kimchi was lovely, in combination with the roasted cauliflower. Cheese doughnuts..... I was looking forward to these so much and they lived up to my expectation. If I was hungover I would eat 6 of these in a row! My favourite though,was the beetroot. The flavour didn't hit me until my third bite when my mouth was experiencing something incredible. The dish looks so exciting and it is probably the most special dish of all. So unique and delightful to taste. The dessert was nice although I couldn't finish it! I went for the malted ice cream and toffee. Loved the flavours but I think I was so full I couldn't fully appreciate it. My boyfriend had the chocolate cherries and caramel which was very rich and again he couldn't finish it either! I must say each wine was nicely paired. Most of the beers were quite fruity which we loved. The waitress was so friendly. It's not stuffy or too formal at The Frog and I felt comfortable at all times. I even got to talk to Adam Handling and ask him all of my burning questions. Fab night!

    Simply grrreat evening, every dish was a work of art. And more importantly tasted wonderful. We did the fixed menu deal, it was worth every penny, every dish was a winner. The restaurant itself has a casual but welcoming fell, free of stuffiness really enjoyed the whole experience. Will definitely return.

    Good dining experience, with octopus and short rib dishes excellent. Friendly, attentive and knowledgeable staff. Only complaint is with the wine list - there should be a couple of cheaper 'house' wines, rather than just £40++ options. Actually counter-productive, as we didn't stay for a 2nd bottle, when we might have had dessert, coffee...

    Excellent food. I choose the vegetarian tasting menu which was beautifully presented with unusual food combinations which worked perfectly. Extremely tasty

    Great taster menu! The icing on the cake was Adam himself brining out one of the courses!
