Description: 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 provençal 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, Tony Kelly. 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.

Visited on a Saturday night for dinner with my wife. Every aspect of the night from arrival to leaving was first class and made for a very enjoyable evening. We were asked where we would like to sit (in or out) and looked after by the waitress who had a good knowledge of the menu. What we had was all... More

The food, the ambience and the service were really very good. The fish soup was among the best i have had. So was the beef but herein lies the but.... Infact I was surprised and disappointed for there was far too much. This restaurant is not some macho American diner where size is all that matters. This was good food... More

Ate here tonight. Really great food. The service was best we've experienced in years. I didn't want the vegetarian option, so our waitress offered to get chef to 'do something' for me. And he did! It was the best I've tasted in any restaurant in over 20 years! Would heartily recommend La Maison. Go.. You won't be disappointed. My friend... More

Dublin these days has a plethora of restaurants serving every imaginable cuisine. But, after one has visited the famous starred restaurants, there comes a day when one would like more simple though good food with friendly and hospitable service at a price that won't break the bank. La Maison fits all these criteria. La Maison, which is a Michelin bib... More

Went to la Maison for quick bite to eat after work one evening. Saw the steak for two which is served with chunky chips and salad going to another table....and there was no more menu reading It was a fab choice. Only problem about going back is that we will probably want to have the same thing again...which is a... More

I visited this restaurant with my boyfriend. We had bread with delicious dips to start which we enjoyed thoroughly, followed by the steak for 2 to share. It was so tender and well seasoned and accompanied by lovely chips and salad. The meal was great value with a voucher. The atmosphere could be improved upon as it is very cramped,... More

Have had lovely meals in here - early bird menu very good - the pork chop with mustard mash, is lovely...as is the pan of fish. They do a good Floating island dessert too. Last time I was there, I didn't enjoy my meal as much - it was a warm evening/busy and the tables felt too close together to... More

We recently had lunch at La Maison and really enjoyed it. The two young French waitresses were as efficient as they were friendly and the food was top class. I had Dover Sole and my wife had Turbot - both obviously very fresh and cooked to perfection. Recommended

While looking for a dinner spot in the Dublin City Centre area we came across La Maison and gave it a try. We couldn't have been more happy with this choice. We started with Assiette Mediterranean (The Mediterranean Plate) with an assortment of dips, sun-dried vegetables and olives with bread. My wife and I both had different fish entree's for... More
