This is a gorgeous cafe in one of the most beautiful hotels in Belgium. A must see if you enjoy Belle epoch architecture, style and service. The food and drinks are not much more than any other high end hotel, but here you find something differently better. The area is turning a bit seedy so the sooner the better. We... More

An excellent hotel restaurant, but also a very good walk-in-off-the-street experience. We were there early evening on a hot day, so there were not many customers indoors to begin with, but the pavement tables outside were well filled. We had been recommended Café Metropole for it's décor which did not disappoint, but the food was good (if on the pricy... More

We visited while staying at the Metropole Hotel. The live music was great, the food quite good and the service ( by Leyla, a charming young woman) excellent. Outdoor dining on a warm May late afternoon--early evening, doesn't get much better.

Food and drink is contemporary, revel in the decor and atmosphere of 1895 and Art Deco.. Very few places these days have this combination of good food and presentation, with attentive service, in such sumptuous surroundings. What's more, there are tables outside where you can sip what you like and watch the world go by, heated when it's winter.

A visit to the Café Metropole is a must. The interior is spectacular, with gorgeous chandeliers, marble, wood finishes, and so many beautiful touches. It is a glorious example of the Belle Epoch era that makes it seem like time has stopped. I had coffee and a slice of the tart of the day, both of which were excellent. The... More
