This is a rather old-fashioned place, in a good sense. The owner is unpretentious, can even at times be a bit rude, yet is completely committed to running a good, honest French restaurant and can also be quite humorous. Very unusual these days, the place is quiet enough to have a conversation with your friends while having your dinner. The... More

We found this French restaurant by chance as we usually drive down Hornsey Road to get to other eateries in Crouch End. The reason why we had not discovered it until now is that it blends in with all the other houses around it and has literally been turned into a bistro like place. The food is not too cheap... More

We had a lovely dinner at Les Associes to celebrate an 18th. All the family came. We loved the wine, the atmosphere, the service and the food. So nice to organise 3 delicious veggie main courses as well. Granny kept saying this was how French restaurants used to be! And aren't we lucky this one is here in Crouch End?... More

Great traditional bistro fare, couple with a good and relatively inexpensive wine list. Always go for the day's specials: I has snails in that creamy sauce beloved of French chefs followed by rabbit, served with just so mange-touts and potatoes. The sauce reduction accompanying the rabbit was immaculate, too.The langoustine starter was also beautifully cooked and presented. We all had... More

Went for a Valentine's meal and again reminded of how charming this restaurant is. Great value and decent wine list; romantic ambience. Offered small cheese selection after main course - proprieter's own choice - including Brie Noir. Delicious surprise! Does a Sunday lunch (3 Courses) for only £16! Les Associes has been going for about 20 years+ and hopefully will... More

I wanted a French celebration (being French!) for a joint birthday celebration for my daughter and I. Marc, the owner, gave us a 3 course menu for below £20 including a delicious couscous royal (with authentic merguez sausages) as a choice of main course. The staff were wonderful, pleasant and very helpful. With 30 guests, we had the place to... More

My family and I have eaten at this lovely little restaurant many times and it never fails to disappoint. We ate here again at the weekend, and it was empty. People kept coming door and then walking away. The fixed price menu is very good provincial French cooking. Rabbit in aspic, goose neck and chicken livers for starters, then lamb,... More

Unusual, charming, French, local. It's all these things but sometimes the food is tired and in need of an update. We've been delighted or disappointed, depending on what we've ordered, usually a mixture of these at the same table. The set menu is a safe bet and VFM. I'd love to see the a la carte revamped.
