Staff were lovely and chatty, food was excellent, would certainly recommend and come back! Had the Bang bang prawns to start and a cheese burger with added onions which was so good! Cocktails looked good - would come back for more dinner and cocktails!

We really enjoyed ourselves here. Lovely lunch menu. Everything tasted great, starting with the ginger-mint spritzers. Swift, efficient service provided by bright, friendly, motivated staff. Excellent!

Enjoyed a selection of small plates, good size portions and variety. We had been out for an afternoon drink so this was ideal food to soak it up! Service was friendly and efficient.

We have been a few times - brunch is always a wee bit out of the ordinary with lots of unusual on offer. As much as I like the place and would go back there are a few wee things that prevent a 5 star rating - the first being the standard sized coffees which are teensy and you always.... More

I chose this restaurant due to their excellent brunch menu. It has a lot of veg and vegan options. I went for the lebanese breakfast which contained baked eggs, chickpeas, haloumi, potatoes and pita. I was disappointed that the egg wasn't runny but aside from that the food was perfect. This was let down by the service. We had to... More

Lovely meal for a 21st celebration. 10 of us in a quiet corner. Friendly, attentive service. Great variety of food which was very nicely prepared. Great value for money too. Would visit again.

Really tasty food, friendly staff, and dog friendly. Service was a bit slow but it was a busy Sunday lunch time.

One of the few places to open before 11am on a Sunday, Left Bank does a range of interesting and well-cooked breakfasts. The Lebanese is highly recommended. Coffee is good, and the staff very efficient.

Stumbled across this place by accident looking for somewhere quick to grab a bite to eat. The best chilli con carne I've ever had! The staff are friendly and the place is funky inside! Definitely worth a visit!

Had a lovely meal on Saturday night although had to keep my coat on as it was very cold within the restaurant. I mentioned this to be told by the waitress she was very warm running about the place!! Generally the staff were nice even though they had to deal with 6 very rude men sitting next to us, who... More

Heya Corrie! Thanks for stopping by last Saturday, sorry about the heating, it takes a day or two to get in the walls; before everything is toasty over the cold periods! So sorry again. I remember you guys and the grumbly ones you had to sit beside, hopefully they didn't diminish your experience and you'll be back to smile along... More
