    We went there on the strength of a voucher my wife received as a 70th birthday gift from her Godson in February 2023. She turned 71 on Feb. 26th, 2024, so we decided to avail of it then! Not only was the voucher still valid, it exceeded the cost of the meal by €90, which we were allowed carry-over to our next visit. Added to all that was the fact that the food was superb, ensuring that we will most definitely be making use of the €90 credit! All in all, a most enjoyable evening. Many thanks.

    Great little restaurant. Lunch was of a very high quality. Choice was a little limited and portion sizes small for the cost. Music a bit loud and energetic but volume turned down after our request. Staff so friendly and welcoming it makes for a very enjoyable experience.

    Excellent anniversary dinner in La Maison with my wife. It was extremely busy, and the waiters were run off their feet, but the service was still excellent. The food in La Maison is always wonderful and it was no different last night. Lovely to see the restaurant and the pubs around the area so busy and a lovely vibe on the streets. So important that the local retailers in town remain busy.

    We ordered the cote de beouf medium well, it arrived rare. The venison starter was not nice at all and the waiter repeatedly asked us why we didn’t finish it. The waiter challenged us when we only ordered one starter and ordered the beef medium well. The outdoor space was very crowded.

    The food was very good, typically French in style (which is what we wanted), a good wine selection and excellent service from our waiter, Lorcan. We have eaten in La Maison many times over the years and never disappointed. A well run restaurant in every way.

    It's not a french restaurant really. It surely has a few french dishes but they have added burrata or gnocchi for example which is not french at all. Not even the apéritif they serve you with bread, olives, and pesto (not french at all). Food is ok, but don't go here if you expect a french menu, it has been altered to cater for Irish palate+ sone italian additions that I don't understand really.

    Classic French cuisine, nice ambiance, and great service on a quiet mid-week night. Menu ticked all the boxes with both a set menu and a la carte available with good choices on both. Starters and main course were well cooked with good presentation. Desert was delicious and pre-dinner cocktail was excellent
