This place is worth a visit just to check out the decor. It is the prettiest bar I have ever been to. Each room has a different look and they're all beautiful. My friends and I went there just for a quick drink on our last day in Ireland; I wish we had found this place earlier as I would... More

Our group met here for drinks & finger food ( Grafton & Dawson platters). I liked the Grafton platter the best. The music was a bit loud, making talking difficult.

Visited Cafe en Seine with my sister's hen party on 19th November. Atmosphere and decor were great and the staff were extremely attentive. We had booked a package and a reserved area and unfortunately when we arrived some customers had sat in the area reserved for our party. Staff were more than helpful and politely asked them to move (and... More

Was in CeSeine at the weekend. They are slyly selling 275ml bottles of beer when the standard everywhere else is 330ml. I complained to the staff and said I wanted a Heineken instead. The barmaid then went over and filled up 3/4 already pulled slops and tried to give me that. I just laughed in disbelief. And they charge you... More

We were a group of 9 without reservation and they were literally the only place to cater the group. In addition they were able to split the bill by 9 without going mad! The food was good. Especially the main course which was a rib eye steak. My starter (duck liver paste) would have been great, if prepared with some... More

We had been recommended to try this venue, and so decided to visit earlier in the day in case we needed to book. It really is the most amazing decor - there is always something new to notice, hard to describe but Parisian Antique is about as close as I can get - wonderful! The member of staff who booked...
