If you're visiting Dublin, this place is a must. A gem of a place, which you wouldn't think so walking past. Fantastic food and a lovely atmosphere. It certainly has the wow factor!

One obligatory drink in temple bar to show my girlfriend and then off up to Dawson st to cafe en seine Beautiful decor and great choice of food Loads of drinking areas (although some were closed I guess as it was winter?) Prices much more realistic than temple bar and way more up market

Dropped in a for a pre-dinner drink before heading across to Fire. restaurant. Popular, large trendy bar. Have never looked at the menu but would be inclined to avoid the food as there are other places around that would be more appealing than here - just too large to feel as if your having a meal out. Prices slightly above... More

Cafe en Seine offers a uniquely diverse, soulful, quirky, neat, and wholesome esthetic, and overall an atmospherical dining vibe. From the music to the visually captivating all-round experience, with an exterior and interior fit to the eye and the adventure filled soul. The food is of its own kind, French with a Fusion (Guacamole and Sweet Potato Fries) (Homemade Apple... More

Danielle stood out amongst the staff here. Focused and a hard worker who enjoys herself on the job. Last night she went above and beyond and it made me want write this good review on her because she deserves the recognition. It's a difficult industry so keep up the good work in positively facing it's challenges. 😊

My friend and i had the brioche du poulet (chicken burger) and the duck confuit leg in this place and they were both awful. I asked the waitress to try my burger just so she could tell how bad it was but she laughed and said she never eats the food from this place. In fairness to her, in fairness... More

A large group of us visited here recently and we had a set menu. The menu was limited but the quality of the food was poor. A number of the group mentioned that their food was cold and bland. On our dining experience, I would rush back but as a bar it has a nice atmosphere.

An excellent bar-restaurant in the heart of Dublin. A stone's throw from Trinity College Dublin and St Stephen's Green. Highly recommended for both business lunch and casual drinks

What an amazing place. Been to some pretty impressive bars in pretty impressive buildings in cities in the USA, Scotland and England but this is probably the most impressive I've ever visited- probably because I love Art Deco furnishings and this place is full of them. Great drinks selection including 19 different gins! Huge place but felt cosy and intimate... More
