“Gourmet Food/Artistic Presentation”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

The delicate flavors and creative combinations served at Metro Bistro are the work of a knowledgeable and dedicated chef! The homemade foie gras terrine with guava is one example. The unbelievable braised butter fish with ponzu sauce and pickled vegetables is another. In all, we enjoyed the foie appetizer, two entrees, one delicious dessert and a lovely bottle of wine for around 60 euros. The complimentary apertif and digestif were a nice surprise.

The artistic presentation, unpretentious yet comfortable setting, and attentive service all reinforced the main reason we will definitely return to Metro Bistro: Enjoying a meal created by a chef who is as talented, creative, and passionate about his craft as Chef Elmer del Rosario is a treat not to be missed.

“Visit this place for the menu”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

Visited this restaurant in May 2013. I didn't know much about it unless what I read on TripAdvisor. The service was OK, the servants english skills were appr as good as my spanish so it was kind of a big guess from order to delivery. But everything came out right, and we were eight people in our company. The food was brilliant, beautifully presented and flavours really fresh and clean.
The interior of the restaurant was not what I expected, looking some what cheap and plastic. Unfortunately this lowers the total rating of Metro Bistro. Overall rating is nevertheless top standard, because of the food.

“Great dinner”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

We had a very good dinner. We took a menu and the food was orignal (Foie Grad, squid, fish, etc...) and very good for a fair price.
We also received additonal beverages for free (Moritho of celeri).
They also tried to explain us the content of each plate in English which we appreciated a lot.

“Pleasant meal”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

We stumbled upon this restaurant by accident on a hot Saturday afternoon recently. They were close to closing but kindly allowed us to come in and order a meal. We were very pleasantly surprised. We ordered a salad for 3 and my husband had a starter (very generous portion), while my niece and I ordered mains. We did not have any wine (too hot outside) but were all pleased with our meals and the desserts.
