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.

This is a gem. We found it by accident down a side street. It has a lovely atmosphere, with cosy outside seating under a canopy - a great place to people-watch.

Liked service,menu in general and omelettes in particular.Disliked size of seats and close proximity to your fellow diners.It is a bijou establishment and would be happy to eat here for lunch but doesn't really afford enough space for a long and leisurely dinner.Good wine list.

We went for early bird, it is good price for a lot of food. The quality is ok, the starters were good enough and for the mains the fish was excellent. For desert avoid the mousse au chocolat but other than that the rest is fine. Good place, not unforgetable though.

What a wonderful place! I can honestly say we had the perfect lunch here recently. A long leisurely lunch during some time off work and I enjoyed every second of it - and felt compelled to rave about it on-line. Firstly the place itself is beautiful and intimate. The staff were really friendly and knowledgeable, without being intrusive. And what... More

Birthday dinner. Booked well in advance for Sunday evening and the place was full. Small area on ground floor made it cosy and intimate. There is seating upstairs too for a larger party. Welcomed with prosecco - a nice touch. Food excellent. Service prompt but unhurried - we spent over 2hrs there. All the staff were friendly and efficient. Thoroughly... More

We had a superb dinner at this restaurant in Dublin - best meal of our stay in the city (although we ate a lot of good food there). We ate in the little section out the front of the restaurant; it felt lovely and cosy with a nice atmosphere. The food was excellent - coq au vin, lamb, seafood skillet,... More

I went here with a friend for the early bird. Location is great, easy to find when you know where you are going though also easily walked past and missed. Staff were super friendly but not imposing from the minute we walked in. Complimentary fresh bread and a beautiful dip were a good sign for what was to follow. We... More

3 of us had dinner, a mix of the set menu and the a la carte. I always worry slightly when the menus are laminated. The staff are very friendly and efficient. 2 of us had starters and they said they were "fine", one was fish, the other a poached egg with salad. A little bread and pot of pesto... More

Hi there, Thanks a lot for coming to visit us and for taking the time to write a review. We’re very sorry to hear that you had a less-than-excellent experience in our restaurant. Our salsa verde is usually very well received, but it is indeed a lot more acidic than pesto would be. We hold ourselves to the highest standards... More
