A great small intimate restaurant in a wonderful location. While small the tables are not too close together. The staff are attentive and pleasant without being intrusive. All four of us enjoyed our food the highlight of which was a dark chocolate dessert infused with lavender. It was superb and everyone was sorry they didn't order it. Starters of crab meat and pate were all enjoyed as were mains of trout and pork though in typical French style low on vegetables and pasta or potatoes. An extra portion of pasta was supplied quickly when requested. With wine the bill for 4 was €170. This was good for the food, service and location. One small problem the lid on the ladies toilet would not stay up I'm sure this could be easily sorted. Enjoy La Mere Zou if you choose to visit.

The Food here was brilliant, the restaurant was well serviced and was not rushed even though they were very busy. Would highly recommend it to everyone.

This is a little gem on St Stephen's Green. French food and French hospitality at it's professional best. Located under the Clifff Hotel and near the Shelbourne Hotel. Definately a place to have pre theatre dinner. Take as long as you need or a little quicker to get that curtain call. Prices are very reasonable for top quality food. Highly recommended city centre eating. Reservations recommended. Limited outdoor seating.

My husband and I were on a day trip to Dublin and wondered around St Stephen's Green to look for somewhere different for lunch. We found this little restaurant with a lovely menu and great lunch fixed price so we decided to give it a try.

The French staff were so attentive and friendly. The restaurant was packed for lunch which was a great sign. From the start they were not forcing expensive items at us, even asking if we would like tap or bottled water and then bringing the tap water in a lovely bottle. The wine was lovely and the waitress took it away to keep it chilled but was so attentive as soon as we had finished our glass she was over to refill.

The food was beautifully presented and quite delicious. The desserts were gorgeous. The food could not have been topped had we been dining in Paris.

We spent a couple of hours there and dined at a lovely, leisurely pace. We can fault nothing about this restaurant it is one of the best meals we have ever had.

It was so easy to forget where we were, that by the time we were leaving we were adding a bit of French into the conversation with the waitress!

When we are next in Dublin we will be sure to dine there.
