Simple fix priced menu, starter and main. 4 options for each course. Then a great desert menu. Great wine list. Lovely chap runs the place, quiet, authentic. Please go!

Marc, the chef/patron opened up on Good Friday and we had the most wonderful meal. Chicken liver salad, followed by guinea fowl and a trio of sweets - not forgetting the wonderful cheese selection. My dad had the pork stew - which he said was...More

My wife and I have been regular diners at Les Associes since it first opened about 30 years ago. It's an oasis of calm dining with really good cuisine. Crisp tablecloths and gentle French music add a pleasing ambience. The wine list is well chosen...More

Cold room, very bad service, low standard food and overly expensive. Unfortunately the whole experience was bad from start to finish which is such a shame as a local I really want to like and support local businesses. I hope the owners are reading the...More

The restaurant is situated in the Front room of a Victorian House in Crouch End. The patron is a typical French restauranteur. The menu is not particularly extensive (maybe 8 choices of entree and main course). However it is all delicious. I had the chicken...More

Have been wanting to visit for many years, so decided to go for my husband's birthday. The restaurant feels and smells like someone's front room. The starters of snails and avocado salad were tasteless. The mains of steak were ok, but my duck was disappointing....More

Ha ha hard to say, as we were the only people dining that Thursday night ! We were hoping for a special evening as it was my husbands birthday. But £300 later for 5 people (3 being teenagers) we were not impressed.

Description
Everything about this restaurant is authentically French, from the menu to the old fashioned decor to the curling script of the cartes. The mood is sympathique, cozy at lunch, intimate at dinner, and there are a few tables outside where you can dine well en plein air and watch the smoke for your Gauloises twist in the breeze. The homemade fish soup, Breton style en croute, is delightful, and the confit of duck with grenadine sauce is also a favourite. Wine list is unsuprisingly French, as is the charming welcome daily specials.
