The Left Bank caught our attention while walking around, it had a nice character to it. I started with the soup special (potato and leek), it was very tasty... My wife... More

I have been a regular here for years and recently visited for lunch after a few months absence.To my great suprise a new ,much improved more varied menu since my last visit. There was a lively ambiance in what is a nice pleasant surrounding with an extensive wine list. Well worth a visit.

A great restaurant with local fare as well as local craft beers. The fact that many locals eat there as well as tourists is to the credit of this restaurant. Try the craft beer, you will love it.

There was one girl (beautiful blonde) and she was so so nice. She was very informative and helpful about both food and drinks. She was lovely. Helpful and good fun too. We... More
