Cafe en Seine

Café en Seine have firmly taken the title of best refurbishment of a bar….ever. They reopened their doors after an extensive transformation just before Christmas last year and the iconic Dawson Street bar is now one of the busiest spots around town. They have a restaurant area, several stunning bars and the real winner – an impressive indoor Street Garden that transports you to the streets of France.
Enquire about making a reservation here.

Lemon and Duke

Ideally situated in the Royal Hibernian Way – just between Dawson Street and Grafton Street – Lemon & Duke is a great choice for a seasonal ‘do. They’ve already released their Christmas Menu options and they’re pretty terrific. There are no cover charges or booking fees, so you won’t be hit with extra hidden costs. You can view their options here (we’re leaning towards Option A for €14.95 because….ribs). Each food option is followed by a mini mince pie and a mini chocolate fondant.
You can make a booking enquiry here.
