“Fantastic Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

Went their after veiwing on Tripadvisor and booked before leaving England. This place is excelent and the food marvelous. I had the smoked eel and vegatables to start ,steak tartare as main course and pineapple cannalonni to finish. None could be faulted,great flavours and textures and wonderfull presentation throughtout.
The free celery mohito would personally be better with salt round the glass rim rather than sugar but was very nice any way.
Service very good prices very very good
I recommend this restaurant to you when visiting Madrid

“Fantastic restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

We had a really great time at Metro Bistro.
Firstable the plates was really really good with good tastes and perfectly flavoured.
Moreover the staff is kind and very available to explain the history and the origins of the plates and products.
A place to go in order to have a good food experience and warm welcome.

“Still don't understand the hype”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

Some freinds of mine came from the States and invited me to eat out. They wanted to surprise me by inviting me to the Metro Bistro, a restaurant they found "highly rated" on Trip Advisor. I had already eaten here about a month ago.
Well, it was just the same. The food was OK, the service was OK, and the place is still not elegant. (no table cloths, no candles). They still are stingy with the olive oil and they charge you for teh bread without informing you.
here is my point: IT IS EXPENSIVE for what they give you. I have eaten grilled butterfish at various Preuvian resturants in Madrid and they give you more quantity for less price. The wine by the glass is really a bad deal. I live in Madrid. I know that there are many tourist places that have terrible paella and usually low quality pizzas. This place does not even offer you a complimentary after dinner drink (almost all Spanish restaurants with class do this). So, I gave them 2 stars instead of 3. I think tourists should try other restuarnts than just the top 10. I will never go back to Metro Bistro. If you do, you won't have a bad meal. But it is not Spanish, it is modern and you will pay top Euro.

“Yum Yum Yum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

The restaurant is quite small. Went there after reading great reviews on TA! Well I agree! Super tasty food, great service. Waiters/waitress tried hard to speak English which was appreciated. The chocolate dessert was phenomenal :P Would def go back!!

“A hidden gem in Madrid.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013 via mobile

Founded in TA and we can just say it was one of our best experiences in Spain. The food is superb and the service was excellent. The entire staff is extremely professional and made the visit memorable.
