Fantastic menu

We have been eating at the left bank for many years, the food is reasonable, flavoursome and changes regularly, we always take family and friends for the extensive lunch menu. We have never had a bad meal we would definitely recommend this restaurant.

We have been going to the left Bank now for many years as a family. The reason we come back time and time again is the friendly atmosphere, the great food at a great price and the friendliness and attentiveness of the staff. My mum is disabled and the manager and staff are so helpful with her, it makes her... More

Smaller venue than a lot of places but great staff and great food. They do a set menu option though half of it has a supplement on. If i had to fault it then maybe change the menu a little more often. You wont be dissapointed tho

The Processco arrived in a silver bucket on a stand and was well presented. We were given time to look at the menu which is very... More

We've been here a few times and we like the quality of the food and the value for money. The service , on the other hand, leaves a lot to be desired. Surley, unhelpful and inattentive is what my wife thought!

I would recommend you come to this restaurant if you appreciate good quality, great service, beautifully cooked, and well presented food - that will fill you up. Not only, I didn't need to order sides as a great dish of mixed veg arrived and I love my veg:). Not only that; it's affordable. If I lived closer, I would come... More
