About us & chef

About Us

La Muse is a little gem right on Holloway road, close to Highbury & Islington station. A lovely little independent, shabby chic, arty and very relaxed restaurant serving food cooked with passion. The menu changes often, but continually with French cooking at its heart. From beef bourguignon to camembert fondue and onion soup, you’ll find all the classics at La Muse (depending on the season). We now also offer an all day Set Menu and Sunday roast dinners! There is also an extensive, all French, wine list to suit every taste. We use locally sourced products and only the best ingredients. At the back, there is a fantastic walled garden, perfect all year round. There is a relaxed, breezy atmosphere at La Muse and we think that there is nothing better than sitting in our garden, enjoying a glass of Picpoul and a platter of French cheeses. But we also organise regular food and wine events and can accommodate birthday parties and large groups (in our fantastic garden).
