La Maison is the latest venture of Breton chef Olivier Quenet. If you wanted to find a chef who’d spent most of his working life in Michelin-starred kitchens, I’d guess you’d start by looking in a Michelin-starred restaurant . That seems like a reasonable strategy, but if you pursued that train of thought, you’d miss finding 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 provençal and cote de boeuf to name but a few of the wonderful choices on offer. As stated on the menu all dishes are prepared fresh and cooked to order by our team of top international chefs.
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. Doisneau photographs line the stairs offering a touch of romance to this relaxed space. On the second level the dining room is light and airy, with sash windows looking out onto the bustling Castle Market Street.
