老舗の高級ホテルとして名高いブリュッセルのホテル・メトロポールのカフェは、内装が素晴らしく一見の価値があります。しかし、雰囲気とは裏腹に、サービスのレベルが高くありませんでした。入ってきたお客さんに気づかず、しびれを切らして出ていく方が何組もいました。席についても注文をなかなか取りに来ません。入口がせっかく二重扉になっているのに、寒い冬に自分たちの手間を優先し開けたままにして店員が出入りするので、冬の夜ですから寒風が入り、室内のお客さんが変わるがわる席を立って閉めに行く始末。建物がよいだけに、とても残念でした。 In a renowned hotel in Brussels, Metropole Café has luxury and great interior. You should see it once. However, contrary to the great atmosphere, waiters didn't provide enough level of service. They are not aware of the guests who are waiting to come into the cafe. Then many of them went out because they could not wait anymore. If... More

A great space attracts you but the rest pretty much stayed at the door. The waiters were just average, basically unfriendly and either didn't want to talk to you if your French wasn't perfect or pretended they "misunderstood" your order. Food was less than stellar. Sit outside and people watch with a drink but don't expect more inside.

This is a beautiful cafe, part of the hotel Metropole, located in the place de Brouckere in the very heart of the city. It has an art-deco inside seating area, as well as a beautiful outside patio, very good to take a coffee watching the people passing. Service, however, is very slow and it needs improvement.

This is a stunning and beautiful cafe attached to the Hotel Metropole. Tables and heaters are located outside should you prefer being outdoors. The cafe is ornate in golds and coppers all over the walls and ceiling. Art novueau design, mirrors and sparkly chandeliers enhance its elegance. This is a great place to meet with friends or have romance. Everything... More

We came across the café / bar on our last evening in Brussels and had already planned to eat elsewhere we did however have a beer here. The interior is gorgeous and is like stepping back in time. We were disappointed we hadn't found it earlier and would have loved to try lunch or dinner - perhaps another time.

We looked for a late, light supper in an area that didn't appear to have many possibilities. This place was perfect for our needs. My husband ordered the paté with a glass of red wine. I had a French vodka with a generous plate of smoked salmon. The salmon was superb. The paté was fairly coarse and mild in flavor.... More
