Out for a meal in town and a great place to go. Atmosphere is good, with attentive service. Never felt rushed with time between courses. We went for the house red which was very good and reasonably priced. For starters we had the steak tartar and the escargot... pretty even in terms of yummyness.. very well presented and very tasty.... More

This was one of those happy travel moments when one stumbles into an unplanned restaurant and enjoys one of the most memorable lunches imaginable. Unfamiliar with Dublin, with two hungry friends, looking for a lunch spot, finding most places crowded and noisy, we approached La Maison, not even sure they were serving it was so quiet. We were warmly welcomed... More

Went with my daughter, her boyfriend and my wife; I managed to book for 6pm on a Saturday as my daughter was visiting Dublin. We all had a wonderful time and everything worked really well. As we had not ordered starters we waited for the main course and were surprised we get complimentary onion soup to tie us over...fantastic. The... More

We went for a dinner for my daughter's birthday. They accommodated a baby buggy without fuss. The staff were very friendly and polite. The food was delicious. There was a good atmosphere. We had the early bird menu yet we got an amuse bouche between courses and chocolate at the end. I'd highly recommend it for families.

We booked this restaurant after walking past it during the day. Very nice french food and good service from the welcoming staff. Nice wine choice and if the weather is nice there is the option to sit outside. Would happily return - in fact we did, as we ate here two nights.

This restaurant is an overrated tourist trap. Often advertised on "deal websites" - so if you're paying the menu prices, then you're paying too much. Dublin has many excellent restaurants and cafes... keep walking another minute and you'll easily find yourself better off.

Dear Gareth, It is with regret, you had such a bad experience! It's not very clear from your post, if you actually ever visited the restaurant. There are no description of any dishes you were unhappy with, or poor service, etc. Unfortunately we can not address any issues according to your review! We use only one voucher platform a couple...

This was our second time at La Maison, a charming little French bistro offering a superb taste of Provence in the heart of Dublin. Everything our party of four sampled was superb, well-prepared and skillfully served. We especially enjoyed the Scallops St. Jacques and the Coq Au Vin, both were among the finest we have tasted anywhere. Service was leisurely,... More

Had a fantastic meal, Friday lunch, 27th delicious starters and mains. Excellent service. Nice wine by the glass. Coq au vin and mussels and baguette were stars. Too full for dessert. Will definitely return.

A group of us had the early bird dinner here recently. All dishes tried were really good and service was excellent. The early bird menu had a decent selection and my only complaint would be that side dishes were extra to the advertised price. Most items needed some addition.

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.
