Beautiful design

Beautifully designed bar with fine tiles almost in the Arabic style. Huge plants inside make you feel like you are in a greenhouse in the centre le capital. Cocktails are quite good . Will definitely return here some day .

If you like interesting artic acts, this is the place for you. Good food, lovely staff. Only opens at 12 noon, and seems to fill up very quickly. Live music from 2pm. All in all a great place to visit whilst in Dublin.

I thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience of visiting this bar.It was like stepping off the street into a film set. I have never seen anywhere like it before. It is filled with quaint, parisienne furniture and light fittings, divided into various areas and on two levels, very cosy feeling but very large and could cater for large parties. The drinks...

Went for a coffee and cake with friends at the weekend. The place itself is amazing the decor the lighting the statues and the live band singing. You feel like you have gone back in time. The service wasn't great even though it was not busy and they did get our order wrong then they had run out of scones... More

Cafe en Seine is an interesting place - absolutely beautiful interior design with multiple spaces. I was there years ago for lunch and had a decent meal. This time around, I stopped by with friends for after-dinner drinks and dessert. The dessert menu was uninspired. One of us got the creme brûlée which was your standard brûlée - nothing special....

If you enjoy somewhere different for a meal, or just to chill out with friends and family. This place is perfect. The staff are very professional and really friendly. It has actually become a tradition for me and my partner to visit every time we're in Dublin.

Great mixed drinks. Pretty room. Five star bathroom (think US movie theater done up like a St. Petersburg subway). Lovely location.

Came here to celebrate New Years Eve after following the advice of a Dubliner to avoid the crowded pubs. Dawson Street is away from the tourist area with some nice lounges and upscale restaurants catered more to the locals. Most places charged €10 cover but this included a Kir Royale with it. We arrived after dinner and still managed to... More

Where do I start, from the minute we telephoned. we are overcome with delight with the whole "Experience" . Only last Thursday , we had an occasion to celebrate in Dublin and our daughter wanted to go here! We simply did not know what to expect? You have to go in and visit this bar/restaurant , give it a few... More
