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 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.

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!

What a great little restaurant, it's a gorgeous little French bistro with fantastic food. I had the scallops St. Jacques, they we're mouthwateringly delicious beautifully cooked - my companions had French Onion soup which they proclaimed as delicious & the mackerel starter was fab.

Went there for Christmas lunch on the 19th with 8 people. It was packed but the service was excellent. Everybody enjoyed their meal. I had baked cheese with salad to start which was delicious, a very nice palate cleanser and then a venison pie which came as a slice of tart and was absolutely memorable - if anything too rich....

We booked a large-ish group here for a Christmas night out. Not having been before,,I wasn't sure what to expect, but it was a quality French-influenced menu which was for the most part well delivered. Little amuse bouches and palate cleansers are not what you expect for the Christmas work outing, so they were a nice touch. All the courses... More

My husband and I had a wonderful authentic French dinner at La Maison. We both had salade d'hiver as starter and cote de boeuf for the main. Food was very tasty and nicely prepared.
