Quirky bar, lovely tiled floors and spacious areas, chilling music and fantastic cocktails. Great place to spend a Saturday afternoon in fabulous Dublin. Can't wait to go back.

We called into Cafe-En-Seine to meet up for pre-dinner cocktails in a nearby restaurant and found it to be a very pleasant spot. We were there in the late afternoon, having booked an early dinner so it was relatively quiet and relaxed. The Art Deco decor created a very nice ambience and the staff were very pleasant and helpful. The... More

Jameson sour on the menu 7.50, after pay I noticed that was chargd 11. I call the manager he didn't want to come and just told to the barman that he can not do anything, that is the price. Old menu need to be updated, sorry. Amazing way to ripp of customers... 30% over charged without notice. Not recommended

Rude staff. Overcooked, tasteless food. Appalling service from waiters to managers. Ruined what should have been a great evening celebrating a birthday. Avoid at all costs. P.S. The décor brings new meaning to the words gaudy, tacky, tasteless rubbish.

This is a great place with beautiful art deco decor. We went a number of times during our recent visit to Dublin. We found it to be a great place to relax for an afternoon meal or an evening drink. We ate the great chowder, full of fish and taste, We also had a burger and the squid salad. Both... More

I have been to to café En Seine both with my Family and on business with a client. The ambience and food is superb. The oversize and elaborate decoration inside is breathtaking, you spend the first half hour just soaking up the views. The service is superb and the food equally so. I can recommend for Familes couples, business clients... More

We went for an afternoon snack and we ordered cake and tea. We waited for a long time to get our order. The slice of cake was ridiculously thin and they charged us 5 euros for it. Overpriced. Nice atmosphere
