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.

Friendly unpretentious quality

Atmosphere relaxed and buzzy. Good food and efficient service - small but interesting wine list. Avoid sitting at table behind door - it a bit annoying opening and shutting all the time

Firstly we asked could we sit upstairs as myself and my partner wanted some privacy, there was no problem with this request. We were upstairs on our own which is what we wanted. Service was great and really attentive staff. We got the cote de boeuf, which was cooked perfectly and just enough for the two of us. Overall I... More

My friend and I came here on December 22nd without a reservation and the staff were happy to accommodate us although they were still quite busy. We had the scallops and escargots for starters, both of which tasted fantastic and the Côte de boeuf to share for our main course, our waiter suggested the best way to have it cooked;... More

Excellent lunch, I had a wonderful salad of spiced pear with beetroot and toasted goat's cheese, followed by a light as air omelette with chips and salad. Service was attentive... More

I have been at "La Maison" yesterday evening and I were surprised to see that it was tastier than many of typical restaurant in France, even though the chef was French himself. We had a starter (onion soup and homemade pâté), a main course (coq au vin and lemon sole) and a dessert (tarte tatin) and everything was incredibly smooth... More

Had a fantastic lunch in this gem of a restaurant.The coq au vin was to die for ,full of flavour and satisfying.We finished with the best tarte Tatin ever.L'escargot starter was the perfect introduction and our lovely Mexican hostess lent to a wonderful dining experience.

We met friends here for dinner last night and dined upstairs. The stylish setting balanced with wonderful food and friendly, efficient service makes me want to got back to this restaurant for lunch. You'll probably have to book in advance.
