Popped in for lunch and wasn't disappointed. Having been before I hoped Left Bank would keep up the good work, which it did. I had the pulled pork sloppy joe with a salad and my partner had a burger. Both were fantastic and real value for money. The service was friendly, helpful and efficient. Our waitress even suggested a change... More

We rarely go get breakfast but thought we would treat ourselves and chose here because the menu looked great. There is a lovely atmosphere, and good service, but the food missed the mark. Great ingredients, ideas and flavours, but unfortunately very poorly cooked. I had the veggie breakfast, and the beans were over-cooked, as was the veggie haggis sausage (a... More

Hello texassylvie, I am very sorry to hear about your experience at the left bank. We sell hundreds of veggie breakfasts every week and weekend brunch is one of our busiest times. Unfortunately, this time we have let you down and I apologise for this. I will look into the reasons for your food not being up to standard and... More

Love the decor, relaxed and knowledgeable staff, great menu choices and good value for money. My tofu was rather salty unfortunately and the garlic over-powering. Other wise no complaints! Will definitely come again :)

Ate here last night as a group of 6. Every one of us thought the food was fantastic and the service was very efficient and friendly. They couldn't do enough for you. The ribs were fab as was the mackerel salad. All the main courses were mouthwatering. An interesting varied menu with plenty choice. Finished off with Rhubarb and Custard... More

Visited for Sunday brunch with friends and, although we were upstairs in the furthest corner, the service was first-class: friendly, helpful, and attentive without being intrusive. More butter, and more hot water, were swiftly provided on request. Three of us had veggie breakfasts, which came without the advertised veggie haggis sausages; when we pointed this out, they soon arrived. Apparently... 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
