We went to Cafe En Seine on Saturday night after a long time and it couldn't have been better! Food and drinks were delicious as always! A special thanks to our server Alex who made the night perfect with his attitude and service!

Let me start off by saying I love Cafe En Seine and have frequented here for many years. I was meeting a friend and her partner for her birthday drinks on Saturday night (table of 4) and we were very much looking forward to getting...back to Cafe En Seine. Unfortunately, our server approached us at 10:30pm to let us know it was the final order for drinks - the closing time for bars in Ireland at the moment is 11:30pm in Ireland because of Covid so we were very confused why she was kicking us out early. We ended up ordering 2 drinks each at 11:30pm presuming we would have until 11:30pm to finish them. Our server kept coming over to our table in an ungrateful manner with comments such as "hurry up guys, only a few mins left", "you need to be gone in minutes". We were forced to leave our drinks 3/4 full and forced out of the venue. Incredibly disappointing given our bill of €160 for just over 2 hours in the venue. You would think they would be grateful to have customers back in the venue. Won't be frequenting here for a very, very long time.More

Great service as usual from Cafe En Seine. We just had drinks which were delicious but the two ladies serving us were exceptional. We visit here regularly and are never disappointed. See you soon.

My sons ages 20 and 22 took me for lunch while on a trip to Dublin. The youngest approached the desk and asked for a table. The lady advised that she couldn’t serve him as his brother was wearing a tracksuit pants. When I stepped...forward to object she conceded that she would serve us at a table near the bus stop but not in the area through the building. Very very poor for cafe en SeineMore

Came as a group of 4 for a few drinks, but the sharing plates looked too good to pass down. Also a very reasonable price. The staff were so so friendly and very professional. Drinks and food came very quickly.
