“Stylish and delicious.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Seriously delicious food at the restaurant that replaced much loved Morgan M. Really fantastic seasonal modern French food that was well balanced across 3 courses. The staff are attentive and pleasant. The atmosphere is understated and relaxing. Love this place.

“Top notch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

I've could eaten everything on the menu, the cooking is skillfull, light of touch with flavoursome ingredients, quail, pork chops, rabbit, confit duck, gnocchi, bream, cod, brisket. Modern European via France, served up off the beaten track in Islington, Morgan M now a distant memory these guys have called this space there own. The welcome is convivial, the atmosphere lively fuelled in part by BYOB night but the place has personality. Steak tartare chimmichurri style had smokey tang to it, the rabbit leg main was moist, part Ballantine part on the bone, spiced with a mustard squash purée, mmmm. Crispy skin thick cod fillet sat in tasty mussel broth went down well as did the bream. Pretty little cheeseboard with some dried fruits and bread and the creme caramel with the right amount eggy fart flavour to it rounded off a great night. I'll be back soon..

“Cute little restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

Assiette Anglaise is just down the road from me and I had been meaning to try it for a while - went for brunch last Sunday and really enjoyed it! Great french toast, coffee and atmosphere...and friendly staff which was a bonus.

“Simply superb...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

Wonderful addition to the Islington dining scene. Superb food reasonably priced and friendly service.. Went for a weekend brunch and glad we booked as deservedly very vey popular. The steak tartare rated outstanding by an aficionado and omelette Arnold Bennett voted the best ever by another of our party. For what it is it is pretty hard to beat anywhere in Islington or even wider
