“Put this one on your list for Zurich”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013 via mobile

There is two sides to the Metropol, as you enter the building on the left is the restaurant and on the right is a cafe/wine bar, I have had coffee and a snack or a glass of wine quite a few times during my visits to Zurich but never eaten at the restaurant. It is well positioned between the river and Bahnhofstrasse, so the shopping is close enough that and if you are at the lake end of Bahnhofstrasse then you are in for a treat. The cafe side has always been good and has a very good wine list, with service a little slow sometimes but I'm on holidays so what do I care. So I had expectations when I booked for dinner that the restaurant would be a similar experience, but it was even better, service was spectacular and the wine list even bigger now for the food, good range and well presented. Do yourself a favour when next in Zurich and give the Metropol a visit.

“Fabulous decor and great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

We popped into the Metropol for a quick lunch. The decor is wonderful and the maitre 'd very welcoming. We loved the oversized tables and the linens were great. We both had two starters. They were great but we had two starters because the choice of mains was limited. The wine lost is good and the service attentive.

Only one thing - this place is a bit soulless. It lacks atmosphere but is good for a business lunch.

“Live piano on the patio. Beautiful historic building setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

Ambience on the patio, with the live piano, was lovely. The patio menu is limited but still wonderful. The chocolate tart with orange sorbet a must!
