The food was lovely and tasty, good sized portions and, despite the large party at another table, was delivered promptly. The service was excellent and the atmosphere great, you can sit and watch the world walk by. I will definitely go back and try their new menu which looks equally tasty.

My review for this restaurant does not stand any more, as the former owners have moved back to France because their landlord made the rent impossible to maintain and refused to make simple repairs to keep hygiene levels good. The the new owners have tried to take advantage of Le Metropolitain's wonderful (and deserved) reputation, and don't deserve the rating... More

Not really sure what they are trying to be. There is a very varied menu and the food is very poor. The previous restaurant closed when the rent went to $100,000 how these poor people can pay $2000 a week I really dont know. Sorry to see people screw up so badly.

As other reviews say, a different place to the previous restaurant.

Perhaps they do one Cuisine really well and... More

Le Metropolitain has closed. The new owners call the restaurant "Deccan Metropoltain" and it is a very different place. Basiclly it is a cafe/ coffee shop with a leaning towards indian food. Interior completely redone as a contemporary coffee shop look seving breakfast, lunch and dinner. The best French bistro in Wellington is sadly now just another Indian type lunchroom.... More

We go here once or twice every year and enjoy good French food. Could be anywhere in France. It is a great shame that they have closed down due to rent increases

Not really but closest thing to it. I had the french onion soup, delicious, and my partner the Planche apero - platter of cheese, pate and pickle. French fries were also mandatory! Service was excellent, french speaking of course and a very reasonable price.

A mix of modern and classic French dishes, and the best French onion soup I have ever had.
