Food was good and quite reasonably priced service quite good was busy so think they try to hurry people out.

Good food, slowish service, people allowed to smoke close to the I side diners. When queried on smoking staff supportive of smoking area. Only take credit card, inflexible

We rocked into the city after a day at the World Golf, met our daughter and her partner there with a change of clothes in the boot of the car and proceeded to try and find a place to celebrate them both finishing another year of Uni. How silly of us not to think we needed to book on a Saturday night!!

Luckily it was early enough, 6pm, to find a spot on the verandah of the Left Bank. We had two wait staff from Europe attending to us and they were absolutely brilliant. Humourous, attentive, efficient. We girls of course started with a cocktail or two. Very pleased to find them priced at $14 until 7pm when they jumped up to a ridiculous cost of $21 each. We ordered a few just as the hour closed in.

We had entrees, Coffin Bay Oysters, Pork Belly, Chicken Lollipops and Sliders - the oysters the clear winners- and for mains it was steaks for the boys, Mt Martha Mussels and Salmon. The food was tasty, plentiful, the atmosphere fantastic. As a celebration of sorts we expected the dollars to be up there a bit but it wasn't too bad. $80 per head or thereabouts with a large portion of that allocated to alcohol. Would definitely go there again. For those who love watching the world go by, this is the place for it. I highly recommend the Caiprioska Fraise cocktail...very nice!

Dropped in with my son for a late lunch after visiting the aquarium. It was just before Christmas and the place was thronged with pre-Christmas parties, but we were seated quickly and our waitress was friendly and attentive throughout.

It was a seriously hot day, and we would have liked to sit outside, but the aircon was too enticing! It was a little noisy inside, with partying office staff, but not too intrusive.

We shared a charcuterie platter, and it was excellent. Thai fish cakes were also delicious. A couple of glasses of wine and a couple of coffees and we were ready to face the heat and the city again!

We shall be back...

Had lunch here on a pleasant Nov afternoon. Nice looking tables looking out on the walkway. Enjoyed an excellent duck confit. Fine Australian wine. Great service. No complaints. Good option for lunch or dinner.
