Very nice bar that has great decor and good cocktails. Lots of places to sit and huge bar means you don't have to stand around for too long.

We used to live in Dublin a fair few years ago. Visiting the city again with our children, we popped into this bar for a coffee with our children. It's an enormous place, but it still has a great look and a nice atmosphere... as it did years ago.

This place is huge, and made up of two or three differently ostentatious lounges. It's worth it just to see the art nouveau decor. Prices are no higher than elsewhere and the food was delicious. The only reason it doesn't get full marks from me, is because of the unnecessarily surly woman serving at the bar.

About six months ago we went to cafe in Hereford and I was wearing a rugby top embroidered with "Temple Bar Dublin". A complete stranger came up to us and said if we ever go back to Dublin, check out the Cafe en Seine. We did. It was superb. The ambience is a quirky, classically French and the food was... More

We had our Christmas night here and got terribly rude service. I see from previous reviews that this a problem that is not being addressed. The place seems to be trading on its trendy atmosphere rather than good hospitality. Another trendy place will come along soon and Cafe en Seine will be a thing of the past. The decor is... More

I came here when I was in Dublin for the weekend with friends and we had a great night this place is massive with tonnes of Parisian-style character. Big statues, mirrors and quaint surroundings - just beautiful. It really does take your breath away when you walk in. The dance floor part of the venue is towards the back and... More
