Restaurant description

An Upper Street favourite for almost 30 years now, Le Mercury is a charming neighbourhood restaurant with a classic French flavour. Sumptuous brasserie-style dishes are served in a relaxed space, filled with lush pot plants and soft candlelight in the evenings.

The Le Mercury menu is filled with gourmet French bistro favourites, complemented by a polished wine list. Start off with foie gras and ham hock ballotine with toasted bread and apple compote, or moules marinière cooked in white wine with a dash of cream. Well-priced mains include roast breast of Barbary duck with pommes purée and Grand Marnier sauce, while vegetarians can enjoy treats like the asparagus cheddar tart with balsamic reduction.

Vintages from across France and further afield are served at Le Mercury in Islington, with dessert wine and port to finish. Other after-dinner treats include glazed lemon tart, and a generous cheese platter.

An approachable slice of French dining in London, Le Mercury is a 10-minute walk from Highbury & Islington Tube Station.

    We were so pleased to hear that Le Mercury had reopened & made a booking immediately. The restaurant is looking lovely after being refurbished. The food was superb and such good value. We all had different things but all the courses were excellent. The staff were friendly and efficient and the ambiance was lovely, it’s such a cosy restaurant & very romantic we think. We’ll be back soon.
