Hardly leave reviews but had to for this place. My friend and I visited really late and were informed the place was closing but can give us a takeaway. This was impressive. The staff were polite and helpful. At the end of the a working day it is easy for staff to act tired and frustrated but they were lively... More

I love eating here. The food is great, the atmosphere is really nice and the staff treat you well. I also like seeing one or both of the owners in the restuarant on every visit. I have been a loyal customer since it first opened. One of the best restuarants in North london!!! Keep up the great work.

The customer service was extremely good. Tried a steak from here. Wasn't bad but not great. Maybe I'm setting the bar too high.

One of my top 3 restaurant and no 1 for steak or burger meal. I love this restaurant, I've dined there several times and my mission is to try every dish on the menu. The sea bass is to die for and the moussaka is de-li-cious. However if steak is your thing, there's no where better in my opinion. My... More

My friend kept recommending this as the best burger in London, so I decided to accompany him after work one day. It is located slightly out the way, with Seven Sisters being the closest station, but still a 15 minute walk away. Given that we went straight after work, around 6, the restaurant was still pretty empty, so seating wasn’t... More

Description
Fabio and Jan opened the doors of The Banc in 2011 - reclaiming it's status on West Green Road (it used to be a former Barclays Bank), which inspired the restaurants name and renovating it with love and care to add some much needed pizazz to the area.

A Burger & Steakhouse Restaurant with a touch of fine dinning and a labour of love for two young men, two local boys who went to the local school opposite the restaurant and decided to give something back to their community.
Beautifully layout out over 2 floors, The Banc has an opened kitchen, contemporary decoration with hints of pearl white and red walls on one level and a black and white theme on the upper level which is superbly decadent and romantic.

Fabio & Jan pride themselves on fabulous fresh cooked food, friendly, passionate and personal service. You will always see them either at the restaurant or outdoor lounge entertaining their guests.

At The Banc the freshest produce, fish and matured meat are combined with the highest quality ingredients in order to create mouth watering dishes with unique presentation. With such fascinating dishes there is also a credible wine list and home-made desserts.

We welcome your visit and hope to earn your repeated custom.

Fabio & Jan
