Sunshine, great food, good company - a perfect mellow evening. Now you probably won't get as lucky as me, I mean Dublin isn't exactly the sunshine capital of Europe, but the lovely staff would have made me feel warm and mellow anyway. I had very stylish calamari as a starter,my friend an excellent gazpacho. We drank wine, we laughed and... More

We stumbled across this little gem of a restaurant by pure chance, having been exploring the surrounding streets. We were tempted in by the pretty and unfussy decor and the value offered by the 'early bird' menu. The service was efficient and warm; the food was absolutely delicious and tasted authentically French. Simple French food cooked well, using fresh produce... More

My wife and I walked by here one recent Sunday, and it looked intriguing, so we went in for dinner, and what a pleasant surprise! This relaxed and cozy restaurant was beautifully decorated with a traditional French wall posters. The staff were very friendly and helpful in their menu recommendations. The seafood was especially delicious.

We went here this week. Lovely terrace to watch the world go by. Very reasonable early bird and delicious french food. Tuna is fabulous. Nice touches like home made chocolate with our bill. Good wine recommendations also.

Courteous, professional staff! Just excellent! I remembered ordering homemade tartar, pate and pickles. and was served white wine sherbet half-way to tame the pallet and as a dessert, on-the-house chocolates. It rained heavily outside the day I visited. I was escorted into the tiny quaint space, packed with customers - families, couples, lovers, colleagues for an after-work eats - this... More

We went out looking for a nice quiet little place while visiting Dublin. By chance we ended up in La Maison. The food was delightful. Excellent knowledgable staff and reasonably priced. Quiet, quaint. Was perfect night out.

Okay, so the fact that it was a perfect summer evening should not go unmentioned. However, the buskers outside the Castle Lounge playing popular folks and rock tunes and the lively bar crowd in the street made for a festive evening sitting outside on the patio at the restaurant. A lovely Sancerre was joined by perfectly prepared halibut with sweet... More

It's funny how it's hard to find a place that serves fresh fish and well prepared. At La maison you can never go wrong. A great place for lunch, the sole is the best one served in Dublin (that I have tried)

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.
