to have such a fantastic local restaurant that continually provides the best food - still haven't made my way through the menu as I keep ordering same dishes - the duck is divine! We are regulars since opening and although some of the recent changes have made it a lot noisier as the larger open room makes the noise level increase, we'll still keep coming back. Advice - Ask for the quieter corner.

Great food with a great atmosphere. Our table had the pork belly, duck and the fillet. All very good but leave room for dessert which was sensational!

I was worried having read some reviews and so dressed warmly and sure enough it is a bit drafty down the back but the whole place had quite a buzzy feel as I walked in as it is also somewhere for the locals to come for a drink.

Two of us shared half a dozen Bluff oysters which were great but quite pricey and the rest of the party just had a main as we were going on somewhere else for dessert. My duck was excellent and the steak and chips lady said hers was perfect and there were certainly plenty of little crisp french fries to share around the table. The two seafood laksa's were judged good but on a cold night the contents could have been just a little hotter - maybe they had come straight from the chiller before having the soup poured over? All up we were happy with our choice of eatery.

We went to Banque as it was recommended. Very impressed, good service, excellent food and a great atmosphere. Very good wine list as well. Would definitely return.

crowded, that's a good sign, friendly service, customers seemed a good lot too, as I was on my own and spoke to a few. Pizzas were huge and tasty. You can either eat at bar type-tables or go down the end into restaurant seating. Ok prices
