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.

This is a small restaurant which has a super atmosphere and very pleasant staff. The food is genuine French home cooking and was excellent complemented by good wines. Very high quality at a very reasonable price.

I've passed this place a few times and always wanted to try it. It's just unbelievably cute. I went there on Wednesday night for the first but definitely not the last time. It was cold but we took a table in the outdoor section. The heaters worked well, although I was slightly worried I'd have a tan on one side... More

We was recommended by a friend, who lives in Dublin, to visit this place. We got lucky and got a table on a Saturday night without a reservation. A delightful menu, we tried the home made pate, tasty scalops and we shared amazing "cote de boeuf". Everything was fantastic including the great service from lovely staff, romanian girl made our...

Popped into this restaurant as everywhere seemed to be full and we spotted an empty table! The menu was small and I had a craving for pasta- which, unsurprisingly, was not on offer at a French restaurant. In the end we both went with the cod, salmon and mussels in a skillet. The food was beautifully presented and despite being... More

We had lunch here recently and the food was excellent. We had the oysters, turbot and plaice and it was all excellent. The only niggle was that we were not served bread with our oysters which I have not experienced before, also it is on the expensive side but all in all, a great lunch and we will be back.... More

I had dinner here and ate off the early bird menu, which is on all evening on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. I had really nice calamari to start and delicious mussels for my main course. The deserts were all amazing too. The staff were all very friendly and the service was great. The place itself is really nicely decorated, and... More

I have been living in Dublin for 7 years and this is a great restaurant and a favourite of mine. The location is very central, right beside Grogan's pub on South william street (well worth popping in for a drink by the wall). Food is excellently present and delicious, last time I ate there we had the cout de Bouf... More

Not everyone craves fish and chips in Dublin. La Maison offers French cuisine and outdoor dining on a walking street. My husband and I shared calamari for a starter. The calamari were lightly deep fried and served over a small salad. I opted for a fish-vegetable soup next while my husband had the risotto with peas. Both tasted great, and... More

Three of us dined after a meeting and enjoyed a very nice meal. We shared a portion of the Calamari and while it wasn't the best I ever had it was enjoyable. I had the omelette and chips as my main which was presented well and tasted wonderful. My collegues has the lamb and the pea risotto. Both agreed for... More

We went to la Maison because it looked very nice and elegant and the menu on the website (full day a la carte) was really tempting. When we went there, the menu was smaller than the one you would normally get as early bird anywhere else, with few dishes and all very pricey. We decided to leave. Overall, the interiors... More
