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.

    Really lovely restaurant, small and intimate. Vintage Art Decor, the staff are friendly, tentative and professional and the food was amazing. I had the duck breast in a jeux sauce, and my partner had cod in a lobster sauce which was also beautiful. This restaurant was recommended to us from a work colleague in Bristol, who said we must visit the restaurant for a meal when we're next up to London, and it was an excellent recommendation. The prices are reasonable, our meal for 2 with cheese and biscuits with drinks and an Irish Coffee came in under £50. It's a 10 mins walk from Angel tube in the direction if Highbury Corner. If you're in the area and want a decent reasonably priced meal in an intimate location, visit Le Mercury. Thanks to all the staff and chefs, we will be back!

    Pretty good standard French classic cooking here. This is an old favourite which has been around for years and is delicious food, like you used to find all over France, at a great price, nothing too fancy but with meets expectations of quality and flavour.

    It was so wonderful! I love this place. They were so lovely making my boyfriends birthday special, bring out a candle on the dessert and singing. Would definitely recommend this and also come again! Atmosphere is also so romantic and great, food was wonderful and amazing value for money.
