Located on St. Stephens Green on basement level this French restaurant is well worth a visit the atmosphere is perfect with rustic wall panels which give it a warmly feeling if you get my drift, specials are on the blackboard and in our case we started with French onion soup which was just perfect in fact the best that I...

We ate here 2 years ago with another couple and we all agreed it was a fantastic meal, last year friends whom we recommended it to also had a great experience. We again visited this summer and it continues to be good as we remembered. I had the cream of asparagus soup followed by the lobster - both had delicate... More

Used up our final voucher (we bought a few) yesterday in LMZ. Definitely our favourite restaurant in Dublin. Food and service was excellent, like the wine. I had the usual steak, and the Creme Brûlée was to die for. See you again soon!

Met a friend here for lunch, thoroughly enjoyable fare. I had the Niçoise salad to start followed by the salmon, both excellent. My friend had the soup of the day (asparagus) with the roasted peppers and red onion tatin, again both excellent. Along with many other similar quality restaurants in Dublin at present, LaMZ offers terrific value for a tasty... More

Cosy French restaurant with friendly staff. We had scallops for starters and dry aged rib eye steak which was melt in your mouth, the best steak I've eaten in Dublin. The potato gratin was the nicest I've ever tasted. We were too full for desserts but had French coffee laced with brandy 😃 Couldn't fault this restaurant at all, highly... More

The duck confit was very well prepared. A nice place, not too expensive and good service. Wonderful location.

I had the cannelloni and was blown away by the taste - SO yummy! The sauces used in the dish were to die for. The wine was great and the deserts were delicious. The food was presented well and the staff were very professional. Lovely little restaurant down Stephens green that is quiet and soulful. Will return for that cannelloni!

We went Friday after work with a booking and had the early bird menu. Overall meal was very nice. There was a very good choice of specials that you can incorporate onto your early bird meal for a small additional charge. I had the French Onion soup, which I loved and have not found anywhere else in Dublin that can... More
