Left Bank, Right Food

As a trio of friends, we were wandering around the West End and found this delightful place for a spot of early Sunday luncheon. As it was the weekend, the brunch menu was running until 5pm and even as a raging carnivore I could not resist the tempting Lebanese Breakfast (fried halloumi, shakshuka... read more

The moment you enter the place with a child, you get welcomed with kids menu, crayons and a smile:) our daughter loves eating out and she behaves like a wee adult in any restaurant. She loves the Left Bank and so do we! Salads, home made chips, burger, everything we tried was beautifully served and very tasty. They also serve... More

We popped in after an afternoon visiting the loca art galleries. Heard good things on Lonely Planet. Started with wine and starters and shared them as tapas. All 3 dishes were fresh and tasty. Style of food covered a wide range of tastes and cultures with unexpected twists! After another wine we decided to stay for mains. I had the... More

This was the second time I had eaten in this restaurant in two weeks and this second visit was every bit as good as the first. Excellent, freshly prepared food at competitive prices, welcoming attentive staff, with the bonus of having a dog-friendly area too. The ambience was relaxed, the choice of background music great but unobtrusive, making for a... More

Great for brunch and lunch - haven't tried dinner. Great menu with something for everyone - all homemade and heathy options. Not your usual standard fare although some standard items done their way e.g. their famous chilli. Great vegetarian options especially the super salad, humous and chickpea fritters. lovely people and good service. Lots to like!!

I've enjoyed both of my recent visits here. Interesting and exciting choices on the menu at very reasonable cost. Good service, even with a large group. Nice atmosphere, will be back.

Time filling so popped in for soup, oriental chicken noodle, good soup with well judged spice level and very nice bread but equipped with a knife but no butter came and no sign of chicken. Coffee good in Italian style with background music at sensible level but a bit light for my taste, ok they called it The Left Bank... More

With regards to the butter, you should have been offered this when your soup was brought up, I... More
