Based on two dining experiences in the past month, I have to say this is a good place to eat. The menu choice is limited but that's okay by us. Ambience inside and out is excellent, the staff express their personality in a very pleasant way and the cassoulet tastes 'peasantry' which I think it's meant to...... Big helping of... More

My husband and I had the early bird there on Sept 24th before we went to an event in Bord Gais. The night was drizzly and damp but La Maison was cosy and welcoming and had a lovely romantic atmosphere. The staff were friendly and professional. The menu had a nice variety. The food was so delicious and very reasonable... More

Dined in cosy La Maison with a friend - excellent experience and wonderful and caring service. We needed to have Gluten and dairy and spice free and a few other items to avoid for my friend Nothing was too much trouble - the beautiful scallops arrived cooked in oil rather than butter - mine were with butter - both wonderful...

My husband and I had dinner here last night en route to the IFI. We chose exclusively from the early bird menu, which is fantastic value. Fresh, warm bread arrived to the table almost immediately, swiftly followed by a very generous glass each of house wine. My husband had calamari which he thoroughly enjoyed and I had the exquisite bayonne... More

Highly rate this place. Cozy, welcoming, great service, lots of nice touches (homemade chocolate, yum), unpretentious French food, real tablecloths, quaffable house wine at a decent price. Well done staff and proprietor of La Maison, it's a real gem. :)

Really nice atmospheric place to come for really good French food. Good for groups or couples. Early bird is such good value. Lovely outdoor area at the front. Great location in town and always a great night here. Order the pate starter, it's amazing!!!

Been to this petit restaurant several times and overall the standard is good. Starters , Mains are nice and varied , efficient and friendly staff. Good selection for most tastes BUT they fall down on the desserts - they are mostly bought in / processed . Disappointing as everything else is made in house and fresh. For the type of... More

Had a beautiful meal here. Ordered coq Au vin and due to the wait (only 20 minutes) was given some complimentary raters of pate. Everything was lovely and as we were full we didn't want dessert but they gave us some lovely chocolate as well. The coq au vin was so tasty. I'd highly recommend it.

Got here late. Had already had some appetizers elsewhere, so just wanted something light. Our waiter, Roman was very accommodating. We asked if they had mussels (not on menu) and he said, yes, we can do that. We also split a salad Nicoise that was one of the best we have ever had, and I have been to Paris hundreds... More

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.
