We visited this restaurant for the first time recently for a mid-week dinner. As the total of diners amounted to 2 couples there was a lack of atmosphere but the food was authentic and the main courses were quite substantial although the vegetable selection was quite ordinary. The place has a slightly jaded feel and could really do with a... 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 liver salad for an entree and the chicken livers were cooked to perfection. The mousse... 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. The sides of vegetables contained one small piece of broccoli and one tiny piece of... More

This is a rather old-fashioned place, in a good sense. The owner is unpretentious, can even at times be a bit rude, yet is completely committed to running a good, honest French restaurant and can also be quite humorous. Very unusual these days, the place is quiet enough to have a conversation with your friends while having your dinner. The... More

We found this French restaurant by chance as we usually drive down Hornsey Road to get to other eateries in Crouch End. The reason why we had not discovered it until now is that it blends in with all the other houses around it and has literally been turned into a bistro like place. The food is not too cheap... More

We had a lovely dinner at Les Associes to celebrate an 18th. All the family came. We loved the wine, the atmosphere, the service and the food. So nice to organise 3 delicious veggie main courses as well. Granny kept saying this was how French restaurants used to be! And aren't we lucky this one is here in Crouch End?... More

Great traditional bistro fare, couple with a good and relatively inexpensive wine list. Always go for the day's specials: I has snails in that creamy sauce beloved of French chefs followed by rabbit, served with just so mange-touts and potatoes. The sauce reduction accompanying the rabbit was immaculate, too.The langoustine starter was also beautifully cooked and presented. We all had... More

Went for a Valentine's meal and again reminded of how charming this restaurant is. Great value and decent wine list; romantic ambience. Offered small cheese selection after main course - proprieter's own choice - including Brie Noir. Delicious surprise! Does a Sunday lunch (3 Courses) for only £16! Les Associes has been going for about 20 years+ and hopefully will... More
