Le Mercury

On a Monday night just before pay day, Islington institution Le Mercury was still bustling

This has to be in some part due to the fact all starters here are a friendly £4.45, all mains are £9.95 and desserts are £3.95!

We started with crayfish & lobster ravioli in a spinach and shellfish sauce. It looked a little beige and could have done with a touch of black pepper, parmesan or a sprig of greenery but hit the spot none the less. The whole round of grilled goats cheese with basil pesto was great value for money and looked prettier.
We both opted for the roast chicken breast on garlic purée with green beans and peppercorn sauce. A bit 90’s but in the most comforting of ways.
Desserts were cute but don’t expect anything new & exciting, think strawberry cheesecake and creme brulee.
This place is perfect for that pre-payday girly catch up!
