La Maison is the latest venture of Breton chef Olivier Quenet. In April 2009 he transformed his French cafe and boulangerie, La Maison des Gourmets, into a simple yet chic restaurant where he aims to continue his dedication to Irish people eating affordable freshly prepared produce.The menu is a well thought out selection of French dishes; huitre (fresh oysters), plateau de pates du jour, poele de la mer, tarte provencal and cote de boeuf to name but a few of the wonderful choices on offer. Upon arrival diners will be welcomed by the Maitre d'hotel,His high expectations ensure that the service is impeccable with sparkling glassware, starched linen napkins yet all the while remaining relaxed and friendly.The authenticity of La Maison begins with the artwork, works by Leonetto Cappiello, L'oir Dor, and Diable Vent, all sourced from the Paris at Puces market.

I have been at "La Maison" yesterday evening and I were surprised to see that it was tastier than many of typical restaurant in France, even though the chef was French himself. We had a starter (onion soup and homemade pâté), a main course (coq au vin and lemon sole) and a dessert (tarte tatin) and everything was incredibly smooth... More

Had a fantastic lunch in this gem of a restaurant.The coq au vin was to die for ,full of flavour and satisfying.We finished with the best tarte Tatin ever.L'escargot starter was the perfect introduction and our lovely Mexican hostess lent to a wonderful dining experience.

We met friends here for dinner last night and dined upstairs. The stylish setting balanced with wonderful food and friendly, efficient service makes me want to got back to this restaurant for lunch. You'll probably have to book in advance.

I brought my mum here for her birthday and we both loved it. The staff are really sweet and attentive without being overbearing. Fab wine selection and great location.

Really great bistro, not haute cuisine, but not pretending to be either. A recent lunch of terrines and pates to start, coq au vin to follow, and finishing off with a crème brulee might sound like a cliché, but ticked all the boxes in terms of quality and presentation. Heartily recommended!
