Great little restaurant. Great food, great service and outstanding value for money. Can be very noisy upstairs. Popular for girls' night's out.

“Lovely place!”
Reviewed 13 February 2014

Food was absolutely lovely and well worth it at just 3.95 each at lunchtime! Would definitely revisit if in the area again! Fantastic service and a lovely atmosphere!

“Christmas meal for large party.”
Reviewed 29 January 2014

I arranged a Christmas meal for 23 people at The Left Bank which meant we had the upstairs room to ourselves. Meals were pre-ordered and deposits paid for each person. Everybody arrived on time and was allowed plenty of time to talk and mingle before taking our seats, there was no pressure from the staff for us to be seated. As we were a large party and the restaurant was full, and therefore busy, there was some time between courses but this was no problem as it allowed us time to move seats between courses. The food was of good quality and well presented. As we were eating from a set menu our only extra costs were drinks. Staff were very pleasant and attentive. All in all a very enjoyable evening. We were the last people to leave the restaurant but were not put under any pressure to leave. Additionally, as I tried to pay the total bill on behalf of the party, there was a problem communicating with my credit card company resulting in not being able to settle the bill. However I was told to come back the next day to try and pay, this despite me not being a regular diner.

“Nice Food , Atmosphere and Staff”
Reviewed 22 December 2013

My friend who lives in Formby booked this restaurant on a Thursday for a Saturday just before Xmas. They managed to squeeze us in which was a big but welcome surprise.
We were made to feel welcome on arrival and though the restaurant is small it is not elbow to elbow. The menu was varied and we all found at least half a dozen dishes that we fancied and went for three courses. All three courses were well presented and cooked to perfection.
The men went for Steak and the Girls had Curry and Cannelloni. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and would visit it again in the future.

“Excellent all round”
Reviewed 22 December 2013

A very busy restaurant. Good value early bird menu. Just try to avoid too many extra charges. The wine ioverpriced (three time supermarket prices) just like everywhere else in the UK.
