This place is beautiful and almost qualifies as a tourist attraction, but beware the prices are astronomical and seem to increase as it gets later!!!

Let's start by saying that the name is a bit misleading... This is not just your typical cafe... But that's a good thing :-) This place has it all, cocktail bars with master barmen, kitchen to supply you tasty snacks, and a dance floor managed by very inventive DJs. As a night club, this place is just booming with energy.... More

Met up with a large group to celebrate a birthday. The place has about 4 floors with open balconies that look over the dance floor. There's more seating up front and a side bar with beautiful decorations. Go in the evening and you'll find great dance music. I'll definitely be going back.

Thanks to Café en Seine for a lovely Sunday afternoon brunch. Also great to hear Stella Bass and her Jazz band play a request for my parents 60th wedding anniversary.

Cafe en Seine is a great place to have dinner (would recommend the burger, fish and chips not so much). Surprising cocktail menu, but a tad overpriced. Really tasty though!

We should have checked trip advisor before making dinner plans! The atmosphere is wonderful and a great place for a drink - cocktails were great! - the food was below average and the seating very uncomfortable.

A unique and Beautiful bar / dining room. Mid week was quiet and very appropriate for the occasion but I can image it's very lively over the weekends. One sever for the whole place did an excellent job and was very accommodating. Food was good (portions / presentation) although a limited menu.

Thank RRBB11
