Going there occasionally when wanting to have a slightly above average lunch and have rarely been disappointed. Service is mostly quick and efficient, and food consistently good and always with some original touch. A bit more expensive than an average bistrot but nothing too scandalous...More

Was invited by a good friend of mine here and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food, ambiance and service. Entrecôte tagliata style was divine. Will return again no doubt!

Went with a colleague whose wife had suggested the same. Had the plat du jour. drinks are expensive . Great for people watching. Had salmon with salsa and baked potatoes was ok but the company and pavement view made up for it. May go again.

We went to Café Metropole after having purchased a Voucher via BuyClub. The dinner is fair, but nothing more than that. We tasted several dishes. None of them was great. It's a normal restaurant. Prices are high for the quality and the quantity it provides....More

The service was rude and detached. The server looked uninterested and couldn't care less, there was only one person running around trying to manage everybody's orders. For starters, my partner got his starter way earlier than me, and I only ordered a salad! The quantities...More
