Description: A little gem right on the Holloway road close to Highbury and Islington station. The perfect place for a hearty breakfast or a croque monsieur, simple and affordable lunch or a relaxing cuppa in the afternoon. At night the place becomes a great little bistro presenting classic and modern French food. The menu changes frequently following the seasons. With the addition of daily specials there is always more to explore and there is an extensive wine list with 9 wines by the glass. We use locally sourced products and only the best ingredients (local butchers etc) Our style, shabby chic, arty and very relaxed. At the back is a fantastic walled garden ideal for spring and summer times.

La muse bistrot is a hidden gem in London's Holloway Road. Great atmosphere, fantastic staff and last but not least amazing food! There is a big selection of french wines, french cured sausages and cheese. Ideal spot for lunch and diner, even for breakfast and coffee. A must go!!!

A real hidden gem with perfect food & brilliant service, and very reasonably priced with a great outside area. I couldn't recommend this place highly enough.

I had a lovely meal with a group of friends in La Muse. Service was excellent with genuinely friendly staff who wanted to make our meal as wonderful as possible. Nice medium/small restaurant which was cosy and a great atmosphere, even saw the chef who asked about the food. I think the menu was a little small with only maybe... More

Stumbled across this place on Holloway Road, and came in to sit in the garden. The food was excellent, I was very hungry so I had the burger, which was delicious (the parmesan fries were amazing!) And I had a lovely chat with the waitress called Claire, check this place out, it's great!

Went to La Muse with a big group of friends and we had a fantastic night. Really great atmosphere and the staff were really friendly. I'm allergic to diary and after telling the waitress she was really helpful and amended the menu for me without a fuss. I couldn't recommend this place enough.

A colleague showed me this hidden gem about a year ago, and I have come back several times since then. Not only is the quality of the food great, they also care about where they source it from. Having considered opening my own ethically restaurant, this is something very important to me. The atmosphere is great! It's the perfect setting... More

I have been going to La Muse for years. I like to try out new places so it is one of the few restaurants in London that I come back to. The service and the food are THAT GOOD. They really put love into their food (the chef even refers to this), and it affects every part of your experience.... More

My fiancé and I went here tonight on an impromptu visit and absolutely loved it. The burger is simply wonderful; one of the best I've ever tasted, succulent and generously portioned in a yummy brioche bun. Accompanied by lovely crispy fries, it was a great way to spend an evening. Pleasant, friendly staff too. Marvellous. Go...just...go!
