We always visited Cafe en Seine when in Dublin and loved it. It is fabulous but I still prefer the old Cafe en Seine it was more atmospheric and inviting. However it is still worth a visit.

Great place for a drink / cocktail. Its flamboyant decor with fabulous high ceilings adds to the ambiance. The Staff are friendly and efficient. Serves food, but have only been there for a drink. One of my favourite places.
