Great pub atmosphere

Went with 7 other female friends for 2 nights last Christmas. We came upon Cafe en Seine quite by chance, really beautiful inside. Could do with a grander entrance to such a stunning interior. Anyhow for the most part of our weekend we spend it there, It was warm, comfortable,with lovely staff... read more

We turned up on a Saturday night without a booking, and were seated straight away. There was always a spare table, but the cafe felt full and good craic. The DJ was a bit loud for us - we were upstairs on the balcony and sometimes had to shout at each other. Seemed a bit quieter downstairs oddly. Food was... More

I found out about the coffee place from the guide book. From outside you would never guest how beautiful place is hidden indoor, so after we entered my family was really surprised and their mouths just stayed opened! I really enjoyed the Art Deco interior where the space is separated by bar into two main rooms - one really bright... More

The food was disappointing and the music was very loud so we could not talk. The athmosphere is great though and the service was lovely.

Just walking in the door, my mouth DROPPED!!! This is the most stunning bar I've EVER been to. The style of the whole place was just eye candy. We went for dinks and I could have stayed all night. There were four adults and two children age 5. The bartender suggested virgin strawberry daiquiries for the kids and they were... More
