I hope someone on Tripadvisor can adjust this one. This restaurant recently closed and a new one opened last month at the same location called Rustique Bistro. I hope reviews are being done on the new one now! Have a great day everyone. :))

The Left Bank closed just before Christmas and will be never more. New owners (with much experience) have taken over the location and are totally revamping the decor and menu. "Rustico Bistro" apperntly opens January 14th and will be offering crepes (both sweet and savoury)...More

This place deserves high marks. Very pleasant atmosphere (lighting, music, decor, etc.). The food is generally of a very high standard, and it is certainly the best available on Bowen Island. Very nice celeriac salad to start (although the accompanying cherry tomatoes were actually frozen--...More

What can I say? Novice server, extremely slow service, out of mussels, ran out of potatoes, out of one of the only three desserts offered, terrible presentation. Started at 7pm and got out at 10 to 10. OMG needs a total tune up.

Wonderful little restaurant. Great patio. Service is efficient and down to earth. Had the pork loin with vichyssoise to start. A great place worth the stop.

Well, it was edible, and fairly fresh, but nothing to write home about. Very expensive too. Our entrees were lacking in fresh vegetables and the flavour was quite bland. Limited cocktail menu and plastic chairs for seating indoors in the winter did not add to...More
