it's the only place of it's kind in Muscat- otherwise it would be out of business due to the high prices and poor service. The food is good as are the drinks, you just can't expect your table to be cleared and your likely to have to go to the bar for your own drink. Nice atmosphere if only they could get their act together.

Recently visited Left Bank for the second time, and I have to say it's becoming one of my favorite places in Oman. While service was a little spotty (the outside terrace was pumping), the food was tasty and the wine on offer great. It seems to be mostly a cocktail-type place, but ask the waiter for wine recommendations.

We tried two small tasting dishes - the braised short rib and an a duck spring roll - both were fantastic and well presented.

The crowd is mostly expat and on the day we visited, a public holiday, very raucous. but that adds to the atmosphere.

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!

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.
