We were travelling around Ireland and ended up at this restaurant, where we enjoyed all our meals (a group of 20 people, so lots to taste). Highly advisable if you are near Athlone.

Great food, staff are really nice however its a bit over priced. We went for coffee and desert about 5pm and they were served us but we felt very awkward as they had to decide if we could just have that instead of dinner, plenty of tables free

Having seen previous good reviews myself and my girlfriend decided to go out for nice meal on Friday evening so we booked the Left Bank restaurant in Athlone.

Went there for lunch last Tuesday and had my all time favourite Tandoori Chicken served with Potato slices and salad, as always it was gorgeous and the service friendly and efficient, never fails to please and is reasonably priced for what you get.

After hearing some glowing reports about this restaurant I was really looking forward to trying it out. Unfortunately I was less than impressed. On arrival we were presented with luke warm tap water and a bowl of ice... A bit unusual but nothing too bad...

This meal was super from beginning to end and the service was warm and friendly. Food is fresh and in season. The mixed fish platter to share as a starter is one of the best I have had anyplace with a really good mix of fish all cooked in different ways. As I don't eat meat I can be limited... More
