I had a great dinner here while on vacation in Dublin. Delicious warm vegetable salad and chicken/gnocchi dinner. The best part was the dessert. Be sure to ask the server's recommendation for the food - I did, and she never steered me wrong. The pumpkin cheesecake with salted caramel ice cream was an Christmas present for my taste buds.

I really liked the good food. It was perfect for lunch with well designed menu, friendly staff, and very tasty food. Nothing to complain about except it took a little longer than a soup and sandwich.

From Eric Tydgadt, owner of La mere Zou: Thank you for your review; we try to make our service at lunch as swift as possible as we understand that people have a limited time to dine and return to their place of work. We can accommodate requests for speedy service or relaxed service to meet a customer's expectation.

If you are looking for elaborately presented innovative food, La Mere Zou is not the place for you. On the other hand if you like traditional French bistro cooking, perfectly cooked and quite elegantly presented you will no doubt enjoy this restaurant. At lunch with friends, we found everything from bread to coffee to be excellent.

Had a special birthday dinner in La Mere Zou in November. Classic French cuisine aat very fair prices. Of the five of us two stayed with the Fixe Prix menyu which was very good value. Two of us had delicious steak. One of the party said probably the best she ever had.I had moules frites. Lovely plump mussells with crisp fries. Good choice of wines and plenty to choose in the lower price range.
Deserts and coffee perfect. Could have been in Paris.
for small parties of 6 or less ask for the snug. This is a very popular restaurant and can be noisy. In the snug ist a different feel . Very private and intimate.
