More bar than restaurant, Left Bank is a popular spot. Expect to find a menu of pub grub classics, with fish and chips, burgers and similar fare. Standards are decent and while the food won’t blow you away, it’s competently executed. Dine inside and it’s difficult to forget you’re sitting in what is primarily a nightspot. Head out onto the terrace, though, and you’ll get to enjoy the venue’s prime Madinat location with views of the Burj Al Arab. With its decent ladies’ night and a reputation for great mixers, Left Bank is best known for drinks, but if you do fancy some grub while you’re socialising, it’s not half bad and quite reasonably priced.
Open Sat-Tue 9am-2am, Wed-Fri 9am-3am (last food orders 1am). Souk Madinat Jumeirah, Umm Suqeim (04 368 6171).
