I've eaten here often for lunch and once recently for dinner. The food is great and it's a fairly eclectic menu. They do delicious spritzers. I like the rose lemonade. The chilli is great, as are the fish finger ciabatta sandwiches - tartare sauce definitely handmade! Staff are friendly and polite without being in your face. Quick service. What's not... More

I visited the left bank having heard a lot about it, went in for a quick bit of lunch before starting work, my server Juton was so helpful in choosing my meal and had great table side etiquette, And showed me through all of the great looking cocktails on the menu. I had a marvelous time and will certainly be... More

I've been to The Left Bank many times and I've only ever had excellent food. This visit was no exception. It's been a while since I was last here and apparently the head chef had recently changed but the standards were as high as ever. I had the spicy noodles with chicken and my partner went for the prize winning... More

Eaten here with three different groups of friends so a wide range of dishes consumed - apart from me with my passion for the super food salad which is simply gorgeous. How something that tasty can be healthy is beyond me, but I love it so much I haven't tried anything else yet. However, reassured by those with me that... More

Loved this place. The staff were super friendly and the coffee (the cappuccino specifically) gorgeous. I had the smoked salmon, poached eggs in a Mornay sauce, it was fantastic! The salmon was really thick, tender and salty and the eggs perfectly poached. The sauce was plentiful, rich and creamy, I didn't need to eat anything else for s our 6... More

Drinks are AMAZING. Try the espresso martini or Earl Grey G&T, they are both to die for. I've only had food here once but that was good too.

My partner's "eggs mornay" was delicious and the "huevos mexicanos" I had were very good too. All in all good food, nice atmosphere and friendly service. Definetly worth a visit!

We went twice within a few days because we enjoyed the food and atmosphere the first time a lot. The food options are great. The fresh fish and chips were great, the Haloumi with chickpeas as well. We can definitely recommend the chilli to you. The cheesecake for dessert was also really good. All in all a place we can... More

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.
