La Muse boasts a cosy interior full of appealing French art coupled with elegant al fresco dining, and an attentive team led by the superlatively hospitable Baris. The new menu – a French tapas concept – is spectacular.

After much deliberation, we began with three dishes: grilled asparagus, charred leeks and baked Camembert. The sweet leeks were caramelised, the asparagus dressed in a lovely bois boudran sauce, and the Camembert came with peppery saucisson and toasted sourdough.

Next, we ordered plates of merguez, spiced pork meatballs and steak tartare. The merguez at La Muse are in a league of their own: the plump beef sausages were seasoned with aromatic cumin and harissa, and served with fresh yoghurt coleslaw. The delicate charred pepper sauce finished the meatball dish wonderfully but the steak tartare with fresh parsley was the star of the show.

A glass of Picpoul de Pinet made a fresh and fruity accompaniment, while my partner enjoyed one of La Muse’s expert Bloody Marys. La Muse’s well-curated wine list now includes New World varieties, and the Stump Jump cabernet sauvignon impressed, giving dark fruit and cedar notes in equal measure. For dessert, we shared a delicate crème brulée and sipped glasses of heavenly Sauternes, in agreement that La Muse’s show-stopping menu is truly unmissable.
