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.

We've been coming back to La Maison for 4 or 5 years now. While it is not the very best food in Dublin (you can go to Chapter One or Guilbaud's and pay twice or three times the price), it is consistently top drawer, with good service and good value for money. We'll keep coming back.

Very impressed with the range that was served in this restaurant. Starter of fried frog legs and snails in garlic butter was a combination I had never anticipated but was left very impressed. Lamb fillet with chickpeas was cooked perfectly with the mint placed in the centre of each lamb fillet. Crepe suzette to finish. Small quaint restaurant but there... More

Always in search of the perfect French restaurant; I had high hopes for this place which seemed to be garnering good reviews. Alas, a bit of a let-down!... Service was slow and one of the waiter was obviously wishing he was somewhere else. And the food was just about average. I find French food doesn't really bear averageness well and... More

Directly across Castle Market from Jo’Burgers is La Maison, Chef and owner Olivier Quenet’s charming and intimate French restaurant. On the night we visited, the temperature outside had dropped dramatically so we were happy to have a warm place in which to dine. What we weren’t prepared for, however, was just how flawless the meal and service was. We ordered... More

Food was wonderful and service impeccable. We ate with a group of 13 and everyone raved about their meal. Wine selection was very good and very reasonable.

Beautiful white tablecloths drew me in. Pleasant waitress. Felt the daily menu not wonderful, so went for A La Carte. Here I spotted Scallops! As it was a hot day, fish was just the job, and scallops a bonus! Seem to have cooked them to order, as had to wait a while. Got 3 scallops served on a tablespoon of... More

Visited on a Saturday night for dinner with my wife. Every aspect of the night from arrival to leaving was first class and made for a very enjoyable evening. We were asked where we would like to sit (in or out) and looked after by the waitress who had a good knowledge of the menu. What we had was all... More

The food, the ambience and the service were really very good. The fish soup was among the best i have had. So was the beef but herein lies the but.... Infact I was surprised and disappointed for there was far too much. This restaurant is not some macho American diner where size is all that matters. This was good food... More
