We had a late (9pm) dinner on a Wednesday night, choosing to share a mixed grill platter (a board special) starting with black puddings and corn cakes. It was all fabulous. The chef brought out the mixed grill and proudly talked us through it as it consisted of various parts of a cow and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We were... More

First of all the seating in this establishment is the most uncomfortable I have come across in a long time. There are pillows (made to look like hessian bags) for the low slung chairs but if you happen to have back problems it doesn't help your comfort level. The bench seats are not much better. The live entertainment is so... More

We had the buffet option as part of our stay at Metropol. The staff went out of their way to make sure we had all that we needed. The food was a plenty with lots of different options and it was hot not like some buffet style breakfasts. Overall good service, good food, good coffee & good variety.

We received an excellent welcome by friendly staff. Once seated the staff were attentive but didn't hover around. Our main arrived in a timely manner and it was delicious however there were 2 bones found in my salmon and when pointed out to staff was dismissed as not an issue. After that the service disappeared. We had to ask for... More

Fist time an unmitigated disaster, but in all fairness after my discussions I was invited back. I was hesitant but I had wanted to try the menu and it worked out very well. First time was just one of those things that happen from time to time and I would revisit again if need be.

I wasn't expecting much but really loved the food - a chicken miso salad with a perfect poached egg was excellent. Average pot of tea - at least it was loose leaf. Only criticism, the music was too loud

So easy when you are staying at the hotel. Terrific selection of food, great food to eat - no misses here. Prices not astronomical like most places in the Crown complex.
