My husband and I were trying to get a table at the adjacent restaurant "Trader Vics" which we usually prefer in Medinat Jumeirah, but there was no availability, although we could see many of the tables unoccupied (and it was already later than 10 thirty PM!!). so we ended up in Left Bank. We had a tale outside overlooking the canal. We ordered some appetizers and some drinks, and we were not disappointed! It was very crowded (as this part of the place always is). It was a mix of romantic, crowded at the same time (it is fun to watch others cross through the place to get to other venues), a good experience, and we would definitely visit it again.
