Came here at about 1.30 on the Saturday before Christmas. A nice quiet atmosphere and not too crowded. We were seen quickly and the drinks came quickly followed by the food in about 10 minutes. I had a burger which came with 6 fat chips but no salad. This was very nice and filled me up. My wife had a... More

When they say that good company is what matters in an evening out: that is just the case, because everything else went wrong. Went there for our departmental Christmas party. Never again I will go in there, not even for a drink: service was terrible, treated us like school kids, with their stupid cash machines appearing at any drink order... More

Great place to visit if your out and about in Dublin. Little bit different which makes it special. Very spacious and funky with the old touch. Highly recommend a visit.

We ate lunch there, 1 of us liked, 1 of us didnt!!! (The beef cheek was great) I love the decor and darkness and atmosphere...can see why some wouldnt. Staff were fine-polite and obliging, didnt smile or engage but they are pretty busy!!! We got everything we needed and werent waiting long... Would return. Would recommend.

Whilst visiting a friend in Dublin she booked a table at Cafe en Seine on a Monday night. We were dressed in skinny jeans and Converse trainers, an outfit that I wear almost every time I go out in my home town of London without a issue. When we walked in the hostess walked straight past us without a word,... More

We came here with our office Christmas party, and had to pay 10 euros each for food, which turned out to be a big disappointment. All they served were a few platters with very plain deep-fried bar snacks - as a vegetarian all I had were three fries and a handful of burnt onion rings. For a group of 25... More

It was a little dark, but has a good atmosphere the drinks were priced as expected in Dublin, the food was of good quality and service was excellent. They had background music on and it was just right to hear and hold a conversation. Would definitely go here again.
