Provence and frogs legs

my daughter has only one last culinary item on her punch list of French cuisine, and we were hoping to find restaurants/bistros/ in the Provence area serving this delicacy. We are staying in Vaison la Romaine but are going to be there for three full days and will be mobile and are willing to travel. Anyone know of specific restaurants, or have ideas on how to search the net for these?

The first meal we ever had in Provence was at a little outdoor restaurant in Aix with my 12 year old daughter who was anxious to have snails, frogs legs and chocolate mousse and had all 3 on a menu at this little place. If you are in a town stroll till you spot a menu that has them. Otherwise look at menus on line. Hope you find them; this is the kind of wish you want to be able to grant. It was certainly a highlight for my 12 year old.

Thanks, everyone! On our last night in Paris we found frog's legs on the menu at L'Escargot Montorgueil--my daughter loved them (and of course the snails)! Also enjoyed fabulous french onion soup at Comptoir de la Gastronomie. Our favorite restaurants in Paris were Le Hangar, Les Papilles, L'Epigramme, and L'Ange 20 Restaurant. Swoon-worthy food and warm, friendly service. Fabulous memories...
