Could be in Paris!

We walked in and thought what a beautiful cute restaurant. The food was even better. the lamb I had was excellent and the creme brûlée one of the best I had. The rest of my family thought the food was great as well. Very busy so would recommend reserving. Our favourite restaurant in Dublin!

I visited La Maison with my boyfriend on a Monday evening - nice time to go as it wasn't too busy. The restaurant itself is quite small but that resulted in a lovely atmosphere and the service was excellent. I had the Assiette méditerranéenne as a starter and it was great - good selection of sun friend vegetables and the... More

Went in a party of 17 and had the upstairs room to purselves. Less atmosphere than downstairs. We had expected a short Chef's menu at c.35euros, but we had to have the considerably more epensive a lacarte. It was quite extensive and every item tried was well received except one duck dish described as 'tough' by the diner. Among things... More

Real French feel with good sized portions. It's pricey and luckily we had a voucher. We dined here on a rainy Sunday evening of the May bank holiday weekend. The restaurant was packed with locals and tourists. The service was good and humourous. We had house red at €21, which was incredibly good and tasty. Had a medley plate of... More

Good tasty food and portions. Visited twice, the first time with a voucher and second time to brig my French dad who is very picky with food. During our stays, we were lucky to be served by their French waiter from Bourgogne who contributed to the great experience each time with his professional yet fun attitude. Try the steak tartare...

I've eaten in La Maison several times and there is a reason to keep returning. The food is excellent, service good and atmosphere enjoyable. The Cote de Boeuf is one of Dublin's best dishes. Highly recommend it.
