Description: At leftbank there are stunning views of the river Thames from wherever you're dining. Linger over gorgeous seasonal food all freshly cooked and served buffet-style so you can help yourself to a little bit of this, a lot of that...you can tuck into three, four or five courses! The food style is English with gorgeous international influences and it's all prepared freshly for you by people who love food. The wood-fired oven, rotisserie and hobs are always in action - a theatre of cooking right before your eyes.

I visited the Leftbank restaurant last night for a family birthday. It was my second visit and I was as impressed as my first! Lovely staff, great food and atmosphere. Will definitely return.

This is a fantastic restaurant. There is an extensive range of dishes in the salad and starter counters as well as in the main course and dessert counters. Chef and the staff were really friendly and the cleanness of the restaurant was spot on. Added bonus was the fabulous riverside location. All in all a very nice place to eat.
