Very Pleasant.

We enjoyed a dinner meal at the Café Metropole. Nothing fancy but tastefully served, and certainly better then average menu selections. Certainly will eat here again. Very unique property that is easy to enjoy.

I ate at the Cafe Metropole last night spur of the moment. I picked it because it had crowded street seating and people looked happy. A nice, and not too expensive wine-by-the-glass list, tapas and menu were all good. The people watching was great as was the service. I had the ribeye and Frites. Steak was cooked and seasoned perfectly.... More

What a gorgeous restaurant, newly remodeled and over 100 year property is very popular. It also has a nice happy hour.

We found the service excellent with very attentive and helpful staff. My husband said his steak was 'melt in the mouth' - the best he had tasted in a long time. The burger was huge and very tasty!

In some ways this is a fabulous bar, the decor is amazing, but it's expensive and when they charge 6.20 for a fresh orange juice, I expect it to be fresh, not, as was claimed squeezed that morning and then bottled. It didn't taste particularly good and if it had been squeezed in the morning, then it was bereft of... More

Had a very nice steak dinner, beef was very tender, warm friendly service by a lovely Greek young lady. Charming old Hotel building, nothing at all to not like.Would definitely go back if in Brussels again.

We sat outside which was great for people watching and enjoyed amazing beer. After some time decided to have a snack inside. Beautiful decor! Amazing buzz- great place! After ordering soup and another drink we have noticed that everyone around us was given some nuts/precel with their drink. Is it because we are tourists? Come on! So after we finishing... More

Booked an area for 15 people - celebrated my husband's birthday. The place is very busy but if you have your designated area - it is actually nice. The service is average as they were constantly forgetting to bring us drink. Don't expect the food to be exceptional but it good for the price you pay. Awkward moment in the... More

It's beautiful. The food and the drinks are fine, but one gets the impression that we are being made to fork out for part of the refurbishment. We hadn't been there in a while and were unpleasantly surprised at the price hike. Four perfectly fine drinks for the price of an arm and leg. e did notice that it was... More
