We spent a great evening at Cafe en Seine and would recommend it. Food was really good, the cod starter in particular. We were able to move to the bar upstairs after dinner and danced the night away overlooking the dancing and music downstairs. Fun place!

The restaurant is really instagrammable with it's beautiful lay out, and equally beautiful staff and customers.

The food and drinks were good, but not great. I marked it a 4/5 because I didn't find that the quality matched the hefty price tag.

It's still a good restaurant to visit however, as long as you keep in mind that you'll be paying up to 15 euros for a cocktail.

Thank you for the review. We offer a selection of high end drinks in what most agree is an incredibly beautiful venue in Dublin city centre so for this reason the drink prices are higher than in most standard pubs or bars.

Best wishes,

Second visit to Dublin and return visit to Cafe en Sabine. Booked for late brunch and was surprised to see the amazing refurbishment. We ate in the new front dining area and enjoyed good food and drinks.
Was lucky enough to get a table next door in the bar area to have some more drinks in the busy bar a area.
Service is great and atmosphere is lively.
Only criticism is my husband gave a generous tip in the restaurant and the waiter put through the payment in euros not offering us the chance to opt for sterling on our credit card, as should be offered.
Overall a great venue with lots going on, great menu and drink list, would recommend.

I ordered a Super food salad. The salad was poor and not very well plated. But I have worked in kitchens and know sometimes one bad dish can escape the kitchen and most food reviews seem good on here.
My issues was the prices - was changed €6 for bottle of 1 litre of water - have no doubt wholesale price is probably 20cents of less. Also, the additional chicken on my salad (which was poor quality and stringy) was also an additional €6.
This is why I give my bad review - this place is ripping you off with a smile. I understand the need to make margins but this is greed. I dread to think how much a pint is in this place....

Had dinner here last night with my parents and was quite sceptical about the food. I was far from disappointed! The food was excellent. A really interesting menu. Had the artichoke dip to start and rotisserie chicken for main. It was a really high standard. A lovely atmosphere with excellent service. A delicious meal in a comfortable but atmospheric setting. They certainly have the formula right here for a bar/restaurant.
