    When we were seated upstairs, the four of us were placed at a small, round table that wasn't suitable for dinner and drinks. We requested to move and were relocated to the back, which was uncomfortably cold, prompting us to ask for the air conditioning to be turned off. The service was lacking; we had to request the bill twice with a considerable wait in between. The food was just okay, with the breads we ordered to graze on arriving with the mains instead. Despite booking a few weeks in advance and eagerly anticipating the atmosphere and drinks, we were completely let down. There was an event we weren't informed about that closed the downstairs area between 5-8 PM. We won't be returning anytime soon.

    Food was amazing… service was fantastic and overall ambience is gorgeous. We also weren’t expecting the place to turn into a late night cocktail bar with dance areas, which was an added bonus which we loved. Great fun and very classy..

    We made a reservation not knowing it was a good reservation- the rudest waiter told us if we didn’t order food we would have to move to the bar( that would’ve been fine) I asked was there a table there as we had gone through the trouble of making a reservation- he shrugged said he didn’t know. Was very uncomfortable and wouldn’t recommend to anyone.

    Had a lovely Sunday brunch in Cafe en Seine. Beautiful surroundings - the inside of the restaurant is very opulent. We sat in the covered courtyard which was bright and airy and beautifully designed in a very different style and we felt we were in a French city. Some background music added to a very chill and relaxed atmosphere. Food was good - speedy service and good choice of options on the menu. Staff were very attentive.
