I had the misfortune to dine here recently with six business partners. We had booked the private room and were duly shown to a table set for 12-14. Rather than being removed, the excess crockery,cutlery and glassware was allowed to remain though moved towards the other end of the table to that at which we had chosen to sit. There... More

Our consensus is avoid this restaurant. Even the coffee is void of substance. This restaurant was disappointing.

It s a little shop that serves decent food. We have ordered brocoli, linguini and steak. The sautéed brocoli was alittle tasteless BUT... The char-grilled steak was excellent! This was the first time I managed to finish a main dish by myself coz it was jus too delicious. Steak was juice enough and tender. Seafood linguini was equally as nice.... More

The desert plate was a good size and interesting, tasty too. A very basic place with leather chairs which so used you sit on... More

We recently dined at the Banc Restaurant in Swansea Tasmania. The whole experiences was fantastic. I honestly believe great customer service is as important as the actual meal. The wait staff at the Banc made our experience wonderful. A bright smile and nothing was too much to ask. My wife has special dietary requirements and it was nothing for the... More

And after eating there I know why, what a gem, the food was amazing , lovely fresh food, well presented and good sized portions. The service was... More

Dining at the Banc was an absolutely wonderful experience (Good Friday). The meal was one of the best we'd had in our travels around the world, and the service could not be faulted. We are sure to return!!
