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.

We had an excellent meal in this little cafe style restaurant in the centre of Dublin. We enjoyed the delicious Assiette méditerranéenne between us with FANTASTIC breads, followed by the quaintly described "Pat Mc Loughlin’s côte de bœuf", also for two, which was really scrumptious. Highly recommended.

This restaurant is by no means cheap but it is worth every penny! We were a party of 3, and casually arrived at this small but picturesque restaurant... More

Great French restaurant in the centre of Dublin - highly recommendable. The pates des maisons and the turbut were very delicious - and the service was also perfect! And nevertheless the prices are reasonable.

We had never dined there before but when booking our table had been told by Olivier that we would get better value with our GrabOne voucher (worth €60) with the Early Bird menu. Presenting the voucher to the... More

This was the second time we went there with my wife for a dinner. The location makes the restaurant just a perfect place to visit when in twon and even though it looks really expensive, the food is really affordable. We started off with some snails and a salad which was really filling. All accompanied with some nice wine, then... More

Final meal at the end of a city break - fantastic food, topped by the apple tart to share, which was amaaaaazing with a glass of Muscat.
