The atmosphere and customer service here is just wonderful. We were here around 6pm on a busy Friday evening and felt that we could be in any city in the world. There was a great selection of drinks and food, lovely surroundings and a real buzz about the place.

if you fancy visiting a stylish place for a few drinks that's the place to go. it is quite big and extremely well decorated. the drinks are more expensive than pubs but it is worth it.

I've been there twice, one with the company I work, lovely place. I really liked the place that days after i celebrate my birthday there. The place is very familiar, but after 9 or 10pm when is crowed is very complicated, loud music. Drunk people, but i think it is happen in most of this kind of place

I love history and beautiful retro places, and this bar was translating my passion and serving drinks/food. I had a great time there and wish I was there for breakfast - I only had a cappuccino which was reasonably priced. Hope to come back other times.

This is a great bar to go and chill, drinks and food are very good and reasonably priced. We watched the England game and had a good time. The decor is fantastic, one of the best bars in Dublin.

I booked a table at Cafe En Seine well in advance because I heard the decor was a must see. The day we arrived in Dublin we had a few hours to freshen up then headed over for late lunch/early drinks before a hair salon appointment at 4pm. Lunch was tasty and we all tried a couple local beers, none... More

Visited here for a pre-dinner drink on Saturday night. A Euro 2016 match was on tv but instead of putting the sound on at a reasonable level (if they didn't want to turn it up fully), they insisted on playing what I can only imagine is 'cruise ship music' really loudly over it. It was also super bright, killing what... More
