I have been going to Cafe On Seine for many years mainly at lunch with colleagues since I work in a office in the area. On Saturday 13 September 2014 after a full day of work I brought some 6 or 7 French customers, all professionals, out for dinner and invited them to Cafe on Seine for a drink afterwards,... More

Unfortunately the best looking part of the pub was closed while we there. Only opens on the weekends I believe. But from what I saw, I think this would be a great place to go on a Saturday night. Food was good, not spectacular. Good service. Would recommend.

Thank you for your kind review. We are always curious to hear our guests experiences of Café en Seine. As you can imagine, given the size of our venue, certain areas are required to be closed to the public at certain times. But we would love the opportunity to show you the magnificent atmosphere created on a busy Friday or... More

I always try to be balanced in my reviews but for Cafe en Seine I have special feelings. It is a huge place, I am not sure if they wanted to re-create the atmosphere of Toulouse Lautrec paintings or in any case that particular "époque", but sure is that it is an amazing, wonderful, unique theatre where instead of watching...

Fantastic decor and atmosphere. It is comprised of several rooms of antiques and curiosities, a feast for the eyes. Such a fun place to have cocktails.

Visited here on a Sunday afternoon for the live Jazz music. The outside of the building was very unassuming, but once you entered the décor and design of the building is simply stunning. We reserved a table for the live music which meant we were able to sit right in front of the band (I would recommend you do the... More

Good place for lunch or dinner, for some drinks or clubbing. Nice music at night. It is expensive. Dress code at night.

On first impressions this place looks to be an expensive and luxurious establishment but once you enter you can see that the prices are very reasonable. The decor and atmosphere here has the effect of taking you back in time as the decor is a plush mixture of art deco, antique 1920s glamor. We didn't eat here but came for... More
