Just a stone's throw from Graton Street and St. Stephen's Green. I've often gone here for one drink and simply had to stay for more as the menu is gorgeous, they have a wide and varied selection of gin, and Damien and co. behind the bar are friendly and competent. I love the nighttime music and buzz, but the daytime... More

We had a great meal at night and followed with a lunch 2 days later. The evening menu was good and the starters and mains excellent. Good sized portions and surprisingly great quality for a bar. We both had beef bourginon and it was far better than some expensive french restaurants. Dont miss this place if visiting

Had an utterly dreadful experience. Even by pub standards the music was too loud, not helped by the poor speakers that made everything sound like one long din. Staff were unhelpful. And what was described as a cheese platter was little more than salad and cheddar. Avoid if at all possible.

If you are tired of traditional pubs in Dublin, this is the right place for a change of scenery. It is a kind of vintage and a little burlesque. We just love the vibe!

We went to Dublin 7 years ago and found Cafe en Seine then. We went back with the children this year and nothing had changed. It was beautiful. This time we ate and the food was well presented, of a good size portion and very tasty.

We only popped in here for a drink but what a pleasant surprise. It's worth a visit just to see the Art Deco design , outstanding. Although I didn't have food it looked really good so next time I will try it and enjoy the surroundings again

Friendly and attentive staff. The seafood chowder was extremely flavourful and fresh. The cocktails were amazing, the waiter recommended some for mum and got it perfect every time. The actual building and decor is beautiful, we'll return whenever we're in Dublin. Stunning!
