IF YOU HAVEN'T heard of The Left Bank, it's time you
crawled out from under your rock and visited what is
undeniably one of Perth's iconic waterfront pubs.
Nestled on the Swan River's picturesque banks
in East Fremantle, it has it all -- priceless river and
harbour views, friendly staff, a great range of local
and boutique beers and an unbeatable laid-back
and casual atmosphere.
But while people looking for a great spot to share
a drink or two in the glorious Perth sunshine flock
to The Left Bank, it's the upstairs restaurant that has
foodies coming back.
Built in the late 1800s as the residence of an
old boat building family, today the Left Bank still
features original fireplaces, doorways and staircases.
This makes the venue's interior warm and homely,
and the upstairs dining room has a more intimate
feel than other pub restaurants around town.
The cuisine is best described as modern Austral-
ian with a fresh Asian twist, but it's the fish dishes
that truly shine. It's hard to look past the seafood
platter, heaving with a selection of hot and cold
treats such as natural oysters, smoked salmon,
prawns, calamari, barramundi fillets and, of course,
fries and salad. Another favourite is coconut king
prawns served with mango and lime chutney, and a
tomato, cucumber and peanut salad.
Refreshingly, kids aren't forgotten here either. On
Mondays, children eat free between 5pm and 8pm, and
on Tuesdays there's free entertainment by Cater 4 Kids.
In good old-fashioned pub-style, The Left Bank
servings are generous and the prices are reasonable,
with mains averaging around $28. That's where the
similarities to old-school pub grub end -- food here
is creative, well cooked and sophisticated.
If you fancy something a little less formal, the
downstairs cafe also does a pretty good job of
satisfying hungry patrons. It offers a range of weekly
specials such as Hot Chilli Tuesdays where a bowl
of steaming chilli mussels and a glass of house red
sets diners back just $15, and Succulent Seafood
Wednesdays, where you can feast on the Left Bank's
famous seafood platter for two for $41.
The Left Bank is also a function favourite and
can cater to everything from weddings to birthdays
and corporate events. The upstairs restaurant can
accommodate 90 guests for a sit down "do" (with a
dance floor) and can comfortably entertain 150 for
a cocktail party. Other spaces throughout the venue
are also available. sm
