Went to Cafe En Seine today for a family birthday. Staff were absolutely miserable from start to finish, forgot someones starter, forgot another's dessert and although we mentioned it was someone's birthday we didn't even receive so much as a happy birthday from the waiter. Head supervisor apologized and brought missing starter, but was beyond ignorant and snooty. Had the... More

Hi Colleen, Thank you for your review, we are all blown away by the treatment you and your guests received. We appreciate our guests patronage, and for you to have chosen our venue on a special occasion and been treated so poorly is unacceptable. Our sincerest apologies, it is without doubt totally against our costumer service driven work ethic and... More

Went here for lunch on weekend trip to Dublin. Beautiful inside with nice atmosphere. Food was great but found the staff to be quite unhelpful, slightly miserable and a bit rude... just like Paris!

Had a really unpleasant experience at this place 4 days ago. After I was overcharged and had the audacity to question it (!) the barman, who couldn´t understand half our order due to his lack of English, shouted at me and luckily another waitress witnessed the whole thing and apologized saying she didn´t know him/how long he´d worked there. What... More

Popped in here for a couple of drinks. Quite pricey but the venue is great to look at. Big building with grand decor. Well worth a visit in my opinion. Also friendly door staff.

We were in Dublin for just two nights, and Cafe en Seine was recommended to us for a few drinks. We didn't eat here, as we had already made reservations in advance elsewhere, but we came here for drinks both nights, and enjoyed every minute! Prices are average for a city centre place with style, but the style of this... More

The décor/ambience of Café en Seine is amazing! The food was really good, and we enjoyed just being in the café, relaxing and enjoying the experience. We could tell that this place must be extremely popular and filled to the brim with diners during peak hours.

Friendly staff and the food is amazing, affordable and there is something for everyone. The cod dish, gravlax salad, duck breast, falafel are amongst my favourite dishes. Their cocktails are wonderful to perfection. Ambiance is simply splendid with lovely statues and light fixtures, portraits all fit for a palace or castle. Highly recommend this place for family, friends or even... More

After many years of walking past it I finally ventured into Cafe en Seine with my partner last week. First off, what an amazing venue. The layout and decor is beautiful.
