“A very pleasant restaurent”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

I live in Helensburgh and my wife and I eat out just about every Friday night. We often visit the Riverbank because of its consistent good quality and excellent value for money. Our last visit was on Christmas Eve with a host of Australian relatives staying over for Christmas. There is a very nice bar at the front which is great for just a drink with the restaurant at the back of it. Service is invariably swift and friendly. There is not huge range to the menu but what they do, they do well. For variety, Tuesday Tapas when only tapas dishes are served is excellent. If you choose to visit I am sure you will enjoy it.

“Good food”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

Went on recommendation and glad we did. Tried one of the chef's specials and have never had a goulash that tasted so good.

“Time for Tapas”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

This is better than Spain! We ordered 3 dishes each at under £4 per dish. 2 dishes each would have been quite sufficient. The service was slick, the food good and hot and the staff were most friendly. This location has struggled for good quality and good price for years, but they have it cracked now. This is Tapas on a Tuesday but they are opening a Tapas only restaurant in Dec. Good luck to them - I will be there!
