Sunday before Christmas 7 adults and 2 younger people pop in for something casual to eat. What a disaster!!! Fries snow white and under cooked half cold, home made burger like a lump of dry turf, penne pasta a bowl of congealed slop with some sort of brown topping on top that looked like well you know what and didn't...

Returned back to my home town and visited this place. Staff were rude and would rather stare at the ceiling than serve. When you you did get service it was slow. Despite it being in the afternoon and quiet! Even the act of giving you change was a tedious effort for the staff. I got the impression they wanted you... More

Saturday before Christmas, came into town to meet friends for lunch and some pre Christmas drinks, thought Cafe en Seine would be good for lunch as the venue itself is so grand etc. We had burgers, steak sandwich and fish and chips, fish and chips were passable, but steak sandwich & burgers arrived and never have I seen such bland,...

Myself & 6 Friends visited Cafe en Seine this afternoon. Kate reserved us an excellent table right beside the Band. The service between the starters & main course was a bit slow but the main course was absolutely delicious, well worth waiting for. With the exception of 1 friend, we all had turkey & ham, very tasty with quite generous... More

A beautiful bar with the rudest staff.. Our server was very rude, slamming drinks on bar, no please or thanks. Not even offering a glass of ice with our drinks!!! She looked very sour & uninterested. 3 other staff members we met on the night were equally as bad!! Customer service sucks!!

Really trendy French old world cafe Bar.. loved the deco whith arched/vaulted ceilings & huge lantern lights. Gold statues, swanky Bar.. comfortable booth seating. 19 gins to choose from.. attentive staff. Even the toilets had a French vibe with heavy gold mirrors.. Great atmosphere & not too noisy to be able to chat & enjoy conversation.

Fabulous decor, fine food, fair price. A great place to meet and impress. Wonderful 1920s feel, piano and band playing, discreet service and a great place to hang out.

Half an hour waiting for a couple of espressos and they don't bring us even a teaspoon... The worst service in Dublin by far.
