“Good restaurant -nice food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 December 2013

We had an early bird here and was great value for money. The menu was a bit restricted but the dishes were tasty. Very busy and nice atmosphere. Friendly staff and quick service. Would go back here again.

“Lived up to expectations and more”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2013

Had a really enjoyable evening in the Left Bank on a girls night out for two mothers who rarely get a chance to catch up. Neither of us had ever eaten out in Athlone so the research had been left up to me!! I was a little nervous having read some not so fabulous reviews on TripAdvisor but overall I really liked the look of The Left Bank. It didn't disappoint! The service was excellent and its really quite unusual to find an Early Bird on a Friday night!! We were pleasantly surprised with the variety and value - I had the warm prawn salad (with chorizo and baby potatoes) it was divine. Wine choices were also really good. There was a nice buzz and the decor is really nice. I would most definitely go back!!

“Fine food and nice environment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2013

The cuisine is delicate, meat very well cooked. Name of the plates are a bit glamorous but the cuisine is classical. Service perfect, fast and tactful. The decoration is a bit spontaneous/organised but nice (bobo in French).

“Nice Lunch Spot !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013

Visited the Castle and needed a cool spot for lunch. We lucked out and walked into the Left Bank. They had a Great Steak sandwich special - the bread was delicious - soup excellent - great service - cool spot too. I was going to rate 4 stars - but really after reflecting - was a really nice lunch and deserving of 5 stars considering the value and service --- was a nice lunch.
