Description: A little gem right on the Holloway road close to Highbury and Islington station. A lovely little independent, shabby chic, arty and very relaxed restaurant serving food cooked with passion for food. The menu changes frequently following the seasons but continually with French cooking as the heart of the menu. With the addition of daily specials there is always more to explore as the charcuterie which provides you with imported French gourmet products such as cheeses, saucissons and cured hams (Also available to buy to take out). There is also an extensive all French wine list with 16 wines served by the glass to suit every taste. We use locally sourced products and only the best ingredients (local butchers etc) At the back is a fantastic walled garden ideal for spring and summer times.

We come here rather too often - such a great little place. Small and cosy, friendly owners and staff, simple but delicious food prepared in an open kitchen next to the tables, good wine, and not expensive at all. Nice garden for a sunny day too. Highly recommended.

The service was perfect. Many places feel now that the service does not count because the food is good enough to keep customers, this place has the fantastic food as well as the amazing service to keep you going there. Would recommend it to anyone.

I really love this place! Had dinner here with friends last Friday and it was great! The food was amazing (I don't drink but I'm told that the wine was nice too), and I'm especially still dreaming about the chocolate tahini pot! Imagine a little pot of brownie-ish (but much lighter) cake with a gooey chocolate centre and vanilla icecream... best dessert I've had in ages! Also, the service was super friendly and nice, and the interior is really pretty/artsy with a lovely garden at the back! Currently my favourite place around Holloway rd!

The food is delicious and incredibly good value. Relaxed, cosy atmosphere. A great find. Lovely garden at the back if it's sunny.

My GF and I were looking for a bite to eat and came across this very cool little restaurant. We were hungry and weren't after a great dining experience, however that's exactly what we got at La Muse. The food was exceptional, we both had the duck which was succulent and tasty. Her Indoors was also blown away by the Chocolate and Tahini Pot. So much so infact that when combined with the excellent red wine that accompanied our meal, put her in such an amorous mood, we nearly missed our road when riding back in the cab on the way home!! 3 cheers for La Muse then, as treating said GF to a decent bite to eat really does work for getting treated yourself later on. We noticed a very pretty garden out the back so we'll be back soon to have lunch in the sunshine.
