Medium big place with ok brewpub beer selection. The service was helpful but usually French slow. Quite watery and expensive beers, but criticism goes to not having beers smaller than pint and filling your stomach with not so good beer isn’t really especially interesting thing to do in Paris.
Visited on a hot Parisian evening when aircon would have been of benefit. But that aside, enjoyable visit, 4 of their own beers on tap, and 4 or 5 others. Had their bitter and stout. Both good beers. Ambience was decent, a bit dark/intimate, with not overly loud background soft rock music. A worthy brewpub experience. Bit expensive, €9 for 2 half pints.
Good place to enjoy beers, about hte quality..., that’s fine... Four or five different beers, one of them is a special edition. The worst is that beers are only available in a pint glass. Too much if you want to rate al off them in a only one beer-session.
Stopped by very early and in fact just too early for the normal lunch service (which starts at 12h00). The place is large and has a surprisingly tastefully redecorated interior that is neither Parisian nor English pub, but looked classy yet welcoming. The large amount of tap handles are a bit misleading, as only their normal lineup is available, just with duplicates. Well, to be honest there was a new special brew, Zonk!, available too but... it was the only beer that wasn’t available today. No tick for me here. Al considered not a bad place at all; although their beers aren’t very impressive, they tasted better (and were in better condition) than I remember they were the last time.
More sophisticated French take on a British Pub. Beer feels more like an add-on to the food. Nice but nothing spectacular.

It’s not a real pub, rather a student bar with no atmosphere. Mostly watery beers. It’s quite noisy and expensive. I would not recommend it to anyone, except rich young undemanding students who wants to watch a soccer or rugby game. You’ve got many best place to drink beers in Paris than The Frog & Princess!
Il Frog & Princess Pub si mostra da subito come locale più modaiolo: la sua clientela deve essere in media abbastanza giovane, buietto con luci colorate, arredamento minimalista ma sgargiante, lungo bancone cui accamparsi e pochi tavolini. Sarà che era vuoto, ma non mi ha urtato più di tanto: ci sediamo e prendiamo uno snack fritto (sono l’unica cosa abbordabile dopo aver già pranzato) e chiedo al cameriere, un ragazzo inglese (!), se è possibile assaggiare tutte le birre. Of course: anzi l’assaggio è gratis. Ci porta 6 bicchierini da 10cl, uno con ogni specialità della casa; l’assaggio gratuito è simpatico, ma è pensato apposta per far sentire in obbligo di pagare almeno una pinta dopo. Non esistono formati intermedi: full pint inglese 7€. Vabeh, assaggiamo. F.N.B. (Frog Natural Blonde): una lager del tutto anonima, ma almeno pulita, sicuramente meglio di quella di O’Neil; Maison Blanche: qui un po’ di fenolico; Ginger Twist: ale allo zenzero, che come spesso finisce per sapere di detersivo (tipo la Ginger Tom per dire); Inseine: una buona golden ale con styrian goldings (così almeno annoto), la mia preferita, se pure senza pretese (ma è l’unica a pompa); Dark de Triomphe: stout graziosa ma un po’ troppo dolciona/cioccolatesca; Parislytic: bitter inglese altrettanto onesta (sugli stili inglesi lavorano decisamente meglio). Finisce che io mi prendo una pinta di Inseine e Nicoletta di Parislytic.
Per i genovesi: se O’Neil è l’Exultate, Frog & Princess è il Bicu; birre tutte pulite (a parte la blanche), perlopiù senz’anima, ma qualche cosina decente si trova.
2010-08. Visited on a rainy Saturday afternoon last July, we stopped in to try their flight though were told directly a sampler would not be available to us had it been busier. (We later realized the samplers were free of charge, but left a tip instead.) Sadly the beer was poor quality and served to us in cracked shot glasses, and the food menu looked similarly tired and flat. It’s like visiting a night club during the day, complete with funky dance music -- not an enjoyable experience. (2/9/5/NA/9/9) 50%
