Whoever did the interior design on this place is to be commended! From the front you expect it to just be an ordinary little cafe, but when you walk inside you're transported to a different world. I didn't expect a place like this in Dublin. There's the storeys of opulent extravagance! We came here for coffee. The service was great.... More

This place is really good, so different and unique. Great atmosphere and lovely location. Always visit here when in Dublin, a great calming and relaxing place. Recommend the Chowder - best in town in my opinion

The interior in Cafe en Seine is stunning and pure class. A nice spot for a drink and great for brunch on a Sunday or a quiet coffee if you are in the city shopping or for business. Never been, go and enjoy, it's one of the nicest drinking palace's in the city

This is an extremely beautiful place to have a relaxing drink. The décor and furnishings are beautiful. I would recommend this place to anyone wishing an alternative to the many excellent traditional watering holes in Dublin.

Recently had a casual business lunch at Cafe en Seine in Dublin. Although extremely busy there's a really relaxed vibe about the place and the French waiter was very accommodating in finding us a quiet corner to have our meeting.
