Great appetizers to share

We stopped in to this grand art deco cafe for appetizers and a drink. We enjoyed a plate of prosciutto etc that was fantastic and filling. The true cool factor is the place itself; sooooo detailed is the art and decor that it would take a while to examine it all.

With multiple rooms and levels, this French style café is incredibly beautiful. The bars, chandeliers and appointments are elegant. It is worth a visit to check it out. We hosted a business gathering here, and everyone had a wonderful time. Great service for our large contingent.

A lovely place, decor is out of this world. Food was good and the right price, drinks a bit pricey but worth it for the surroundings. Good service and looked after us well.

We asked for lunch for a party of 6. They said to sit anywhere. Well there was a table for 4. And a party next to the table leaving. We sat there. I guess we made the waitress mad because she had to clean up. Needless to say we sat there while she cleaned up and chatted with manager. Never... More

Cafe en Seine used to be the place to be a few years ago, but still remains a favourite at the start of the night. The decor is wonderful and it is a huge area. The food is rubbish though, so I wouldn't ever consider going for a meal there, but to star the night, I would recommend it highly!

We only went in for a drink before lunch, so no comment on the food. The drinks are reasonbly priced for Dublin and for the interior of this bar/restaurant. Decoration of the bar is fabulous, very nice seating. Service was impeccable. I will defintely go back to try the food and the ambiance at night.

The food here was great but the service was not up to standard. Staff were slightly unfriendly. We felt that we were forced out once we had finished lunch, no welcome to stay was felt

A huge place that is a must for those wanting to experience a bit of luxury. The cafe is good and they are open late as a bar too, although it can become extremely crowded by night. The interior is grand with a strong art deco / Parisian presence. I'd suggest dressing up a little if there at night, as... More
