Another satisfying meal in a very relaxed atmosphere and good food and wine at a reasonable cost. Staff helpful and friendly without getting in your face. Many thanks.

A Saturday brunch based on two fine specials at €14 each, a glass of wine and a craft beer. Really good and distinct flavours. The piccalilli to absolutely die for. So much so we bought two take-away portions in the deli. Nice little place.

Everything about The Left Bank I've top notch. From the service to the atmosphere and of course the food! All of it was delicious, particularly the duck and the pigs on the green. Fantastic!
