    The staff were very friendly. The menu was very limited and pricey for what you got. My friend looked for pepper sauce with her burger which they didn't have and fish and chips arrived with curry sauce 😐

    The champagne was delicious but unfortunately the three of us were disappointed with the food, for the price we felt the quality wasn't wonderful and it was lack lustre. The event was also supposed to begin at 6.30pm but we only received our first glass of champagne and starter by 7.15pm which was too long of a wait. And perhaps for future events a welcome drink should be included to fill this void. Overall, it was only okay and I wouldn't be rushing back unless improvements were made in the future

    I've been a few times to Café en Seine and it is always hit and miss. The food has really improved and is tasty and great quality. The menu has a little something for everyone, even the fussiest amongst your party :). The largest issue was we were sitting directly under a speaker which was blasting the live music to the point we couldn't hear each other talk. My mam is elderly so found it particularly aggravating. We did ask if we could move but they didn't have any other table available. Live music is great and definitely adds to the ambience but blasting to the point you can't hear each other talk at the table really ruins it and it was more irritating than anything. Towards the end of our stay they swapped to background filler music and this was much more pleasant. If they reviewed the volume for tables directly under a speaker it would make a big difference. The waiter was very friendly and really apologetic and gave great service. Would recommend for the food, but avoid sitting under a speaker!

    Thank you for your feedback. We're pleased to hear that you enjoyed the tasty, high quality food at Café en Seine and that our menu offers something for everyone, even the most discerning diner. I'm sorry to hear about the issue with the loud music coming from the speaker directly above your table. It's disappointing that this affected your experience, especially for your elderly mother. We appreciate your suggestion about adjusting the volume for tables below the speakers, and we'll certainly look into this to ensure a more comfortable atmosphere for our guests. On a more positive note, it's great to hear that your waiter provided friendly and apologetic service. Your kind words about our staff and food mean the world to us.
