Excellent full menu lunch with a French flavour and decor to match. Thirty metres to the left from the top of Grafton Street. Very quiet the day we went (a Monday) - no reservation necessary. Served by attentive and friendly staff. Very good value for money.

Went to Le Mere Zou in August. It was very busy and I had no reservation, but that was no problem and from beginning to end of my meal the service was friendly, attentive and professional. The scallops as an entree and the steak for a main course were both excellent and the steak was perfectly cooked. For such quality... More

Visited this restaurant without a reservation but that was no problem although the place was reasonably busy. The service was very pleasant and attentive. The food was artistically presented and positively delicious. The recommended wine was also excellent and the whole experience represented good value for money.

Had lunch here with some family few weeks ago. Food was delicious and the presentation was really lovely. I would go here again and maybe sample the evening menu. Little bit expensive, but possibly worth it. So convenient to the Green Luas so give it a try, you will be glad you did.

My second time in the restaurant, great night, and the high standard is still maintained. Food is delicious, and the atmosphere lively. Fairly priced for good food, would recommend to anyone.

My boyfriend took me here recently as he is a French man and very picky when it comes to his food. Well I assure you, both of us were not disappointed. The food was excellent! The presentation was beautiful, portion size was good (we were not left feeling hungry after a 3 course meal anyway) and the service was friendly... More
