The Left Bank has some great scran. We've never been disappointed with the food when we've ate here and for what you're getting, the prices are pretty reasonable. Our only gripe with this place is the service. The waiting staff all seemed a little clueless. On our latest visit, we were with a group of friends. When the mains came,... More

Consistently delivers, a mite pricey perhaps but as a place to get breakfast after a hangover, a coffee in afternoon, a meal and a bottle of wine or even a few beers it just does all of them well. I don't have the money to go every week, as I said, it's a shade expensive for what it is, but... More

6 adults and 2 children, a birthday celebration. We were greeted by friendly welcoming staff on our arrival, we were served iced water with cucumber ribbons - very fresh and exactly what we needed before we ordered our drinks. Our starters were presented well and were very tasty, (nothing left on our plates). Of course some of us ordered the... More

Went this morning for breakfast with partner and daughter. Despite having obvious mobility issues (I walk with the aid of a walking stick) we were shown to a table up a flight of stairs on a mezzanine level. At no point was I asked if this was suitable. Our orders were taken Eggs Benedict with bacon, Ciabatta with poached eggs... More

Recently enjoyed a lovely birthday meal at The Left Bank. I'd had their breakfast before so suggested it as I knew the food was of a high standard. The Mediterranean-y menu suits the heat of the summer perfectly and there are plenty of veggie delights (and the opportunity for vegan and coeliac options too). On this evening visit the food...

I liked the choice here because it offered a slightly different slant on the dishes. We pre booked and got here easily without a car by subway from central city and a short walk down the riverside pathway. Very helpful staff and excellent food. Love to go back again.

Came here after a walk in kelvin grove park on a sunny day for a few pints and a bite to eat. Pints went down an absolute treat in the hot weather. Food was very nice and would definitely go back.

Firstly on entering lovely service, drink order taken and all served quickly and efficiently. We then decided to eat and all I can say the starters of ribs, chicken satay and prawns were all superb we even ordered another portion of ribs. Main courses were also nice although my burger was over cooked but not to the point I could... More
