Popped in for a quick cocktail with my partner. Staff were happy to suggest one off the cuff based on very little help from myself. Ended up with an Aviation which hit the spot perfectly. Other half had a very flavoursome mojito. Both served quickly and nicely presented by very friendly staff. The place itself has a very relaxed atmosphere,... More

Had a lovely brunch. Food was very tasty, service was attentive and friendly. Would go back again. Only minor issue is the toilets - could do wth a wee face lift, to keep it in line with the rest of the place. But that's just an observation. All in all a happy chappy.

Popped in with a friend after a bad day at work and had a great pick me up meal. My friend had the mussels starter and trout which came in very generous proportions and a lot of delicious potatoes (word of caution you won't need chips on the side so consider another option - my friend ordered chips but he's...

Went in around 5pm and was served really stunning cocktails. Interesting and brilliantly made, and the bar was happy to make a 'surprise' which was delicious. Haven't eaten there for a while but remember it being a great mix of different flavours. As mentioned before particularly the lebanese breakfast. Big windows, comfy seating, very convenient as it is near and... More

My boyfriend and I went in for a snack and some cocktails, but found after our initial drinks order, no one came through to see if we needed anything. We waited 40 minutes for a server to appear, and even then she seemed to have forgotten to ask for the bill because we asked the manager where it was and... More

Phoned to book a table; was asked to hold while they made a cappuccino and their phone was put down on the counter - four minutes later I was still waiting, so I hung up. Couldn't get through when I tried again because obviously their phone was still lying on the counter until someone remembered and put it back. Called... More

Had a family lunch here a couple of weeks ago. The waitresses were very friendly, but didn't seem to understand us very well. The food was unusual but really good. However as a family a few of us are not able to digest gluten and we had specifically chosen this place as it says on the menu, gluten free available.... More

Intrigued by the Lebanese breakfast, I dropped by the Left Bank for an early lunch. Despite being tempted by the various other delicious sounding breakfast options, we both plumped for the aforementioned Lebanese breakfast. It more than lived up to the hype, providing a pleasantly spicy and satisfying start to the day. The restaurant's service was excellent and the atmosphere... More
