La Muse is a delightful little french restaurant on holloway road. we live just off holloway road, and despair at the lack of decent restaurants around if you dont want to venture to upper street and its chain restaurants..
my girlfriend and i went there last night and i have to say the food there is brilliant. I had the frisson/frixons salad to start however its spelt and it was absolutely gorgeous.. then had the le burger, which was a beautiful hand made seriously tasty burger with a nice herb sauce.. she had the tomato crumble to start and the aubergines for main, and loved it.. all this was followed up by a gorgeous carrot cake to share.. forgot to say the wine list, whilst not huge is carefully selected
i noticed some of the reviews down there, and i would have to disagree with some of the negative comments.. yes it is small, but thats part of the charm. i hate eating out in a restaurant with 100 other dinners, i prefer smaller places where care and attention is paid to customers.. this is the sort of place id feel comfortable bringing my closest friends for a nice dinner and a few bottles of wine, or a special someone.. it also has a really nice garden at the back where you can sit and enjoy your dinner.
all in all, i love it. great food, good service and its one that we will definitely come back to time and time again..
