Service was good, food was tasty, although portions were a bit smaller than I would have liked. Left feeling a bit hungry.

Very luxurious, definitely a place to take people who aren't familiar with Dublin. Not really the place to go on a night out unless you have a hefty paycheck each month!!

Great place for brunch on a Sunday. There's live music in the afternoon and the evening so you can while away a full day in here eating, drinking and being merry!

Popped in for brunch with the girls late on Sunday morning. We all had poached eggs and bacon on toast which were cooked beautifully and a few drinks each. Although the food and drink were nice, and good value too - the main attraction was the live jazz band who were brilliant and created a lovely chilled atmosphere. Perfect for a few hours just winding down.

I stopped in here for a bite with my parents during a day out in the city centre. The place itself is decorated like a palace, this is not some dingy pub by any standards, but the atmosphere on saturday lunchtime was relaxed. If you wanted to impress someone, this is a good place to choose. I had the crab bruscetta (on the menu as a tasty snack) which was plentiful and very good value. The service is friendly and fairly prompt. They were advertising lunch specials at €9.50 and after work cocktail hour which I know draws a good crowd. Highly recommend a visit!

Had lunch here one Sunday , food was good but nothing special,good jazz band playing ,gave a nice atmosphere. Went for drinks here @ night great buzz [very busy] but no problem getting served, have been back for drinks a couple of times. Beautiful decor and a fabulous setting in the heart of the city centre.

We ate here on Tuesday evening. It was my first time to visit the place. The menu had 2 courses for 19.95 which I thought was quite reasonable. I had the crabmeat and avocado for starter. The portion size was generous and it tasted fabulous. For main course, I had the Stuffed roast chicken with feta cheese, basil & tomato, couscous,& slow-roasted vegetable salad The only fault I had was that there could have been more couscous on the plate. It was delicious. I would definitely recommend eating here. The service was very friendly too which is nice to find in the city centre.

I ate from the cafe en seine "dine in dublin" menu. It was great value. Perfectly located while visiting Dublin city centre. Although cafe en seine is a bar, the dining area is nicely tucked away managing to create an nice intimate atmosphere and there is also the option to stay on for a drink after your meal. The service was good and the manager came by to check everything was ok. The food was lovely, the only complaint would be that the main course I ordered, chicken breast on a bed of roasted, wasn't served with a side dish.
