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.

super food beautifully presented

The food here is the star of the show. The restaurant itself is small and tables are close together. It was a very cold night when we were there and despite a heater on the wall, the room was quite cold and even more so every time the door opened.

Coquilles St Jacques of your dreams. Dover sole as it was meant to be. Coq au vin that is worthy of the name. Peach melba that makes you *finally* understand how it got to be a famous dish. Service that is quiet, competent, unobtrusive and pleasant. All in central Dublin. How good does it get?! It doesn't come cheap, but... More

Was here with a group of 20, seated upstairs and can't fault this restaurant. I started with the Bisque de Langoustine then had the Black Sole and finished with a fabulous Crème Brulee. All of the starters were sampled and most of the mains although the fish dishes were most in demand by my friends. I can safely say that... More

I love this restaurant and have been a few times recently. The food is always fresh and has really nice flavours. As the name would suggest it is French cuisine and at its best so genuine foodies would appreciate it. The wine list is excellent and overall a very pleasant dining experience.

This is my second time eating here, and I was not disappointed. The pate starter is unbelievable with a great choice, followed by juicy scallops On the return visit we had the most delicious beef rare between three of us The service was very good great wine choice

We decided to try this restaurant for the Early Bird menu. Everything was excellent from the atmosphere to the service and obviously the food. The couple seated next to us were French and they seemed very happy also with their meal. The French onion soup was superb and the hake was delicious. I didn't realise that vegetables for the main...

Have been here twice and both times were equally impressive. There's very little to fault. The staff are very friendly and attentive. The food is excellent. The atmosphere is very relaxed and enjoyable (we were last in the restaurant one of the times and the staff in no way rushed us and brought us a complementary post-dinner drink) I'd recommend...

Oohs and ahhs. I went with the fixed price menu which included consume, steak and dessert. The other three ordered separately. The coq au vin, the stuffed eggplant, and a wonderful fish with herbs. Although we tried to be polite and offer to share, it was difficult because we each loved our own choice so much. Service was perfect. Food... More
