“The Best Lounge in Town!”
Reviewed September 5, 2012 via mobile

Left Bank is simply the best lounge to hang out during the weekend. It's a fav with expats and gets really busy so making reservations is highly recommended, the mist sought after tables are the ones outside on the balcony (u can view the muscat skyline) but one has to reAlly book that 1 day in advance.

The Ambiance could be right out of any trendy upscale joint in Europe ... The music is very Budha Bar and the there is a variety of seating options (from high-top bar table and chairs, to lounge sofas and low quarter table, to semi-circle leather booths for dine-in.

It's a dress-up place, where everyone makes an effort to look good, u won't see casual dress-down in this place.

The food is good (but pricey for what's on the offer). The Left-Bank Burger is to Die for! ... And by far their best drink is French Martinis!

Be prepared to come back with a lighter wallet as dinner and drinks and wine can easily hit US$ 180 - 200/- for a couple!

But you'll leave with a smile!

“One of the few real bars”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

Left Bank is one of the few proper bars in Muscat - it has a fantastic position on a hill looking over the sea and a reasonable selection of beers and food - mainly snacky burger type things.

“Nice set-up, shame about the staff”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

Shockingly pushy sycophantic service. The great food is well overpriced, as are the stinted-upon drinks.

“It's always fun at Left Bank!”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

My friends and I just dined here recently.It isn't my first visit at this lounge and as usual this place is awesome. The ambiance is relaxing and eventually it turns out to be a fun, happy place as it gets busy. The bar is cool, nice selection of wine, beer and cocktails, but the best is the food. I noticed that they change the menu every now and then , but the quality stays the same. I like the selection of starters, the pate' and the goat cheese. I like fish too, the fish and chips is good, a big serving. The salmon with linguine was so yummy, only the chilis were left on my plate. Service is great! This place is just amazing.
