The Metro is located around the corner from Harrods. It is a small restaurant that is one flight down from ground level. When we arrived there were no other guests. The staff was attentive and we were all served quickly. My wife had a very nice carrot soup and I had what amounts to a ham and cheese sandwich with... More

Had lunch here and we were impressed with the quality of food and service. They serve sandwiches and we had fish and chips which were great. Good location just off the beaten path from Harrod's. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner.

This restaurant is phasing out of Dinner service, and will only provide Breakfast and Lunch. Too bad as their Fish and Chips are excellent partly due to the fresh fish delivered daily via the Outlaw Restaurant.

This place right by Harrods has the best fish & chips I had in London. Cooked to perfection delicious tartar sauce and delicious fries. In a simple and cheap place, specially if you consider the neighborhood. Go !

Our experience was fantastic. We came for happy hour and received 2 glasses of wine and a small plate of nachos for 8 pounds. Afterwards we ordered food (goat cheese salad, crab linguine, and sirloin) which was delicious. Though I have to say the best part of our experience was our server, Kamel. As a server myself, I have high... More

Seeing that Metro was rated the best Fish & Chips in Knightsbridge and not wanting to pay the Harrods price, I gave it a try. Though adding chives to the batter did give the fish a nice flavor, the size of the fish was less than average. The "chips" were not standard thick chips but rather shoestring fries. Mushy peas...

I have visited Le Metro many times overs over the years and it has always been reliable for good food. My mother and I were really looking forward to our visit. We visited on a Friday lunch and were quickly given a table. I ordered a croque monsieur and my mother ordered a main course salad. My mothers salad turned... More

I was looking for a restaurant near the harrods area and read up on the reviews of this restaurant. Even with the good reviews (thus expectations!) it was still a pleasant surprise. Menu wasn't extensive but consists of all the hearty meals that one needs to recover from a long day. Food was delicious and of very good value. Service... More

Fajitas wrap, mac & cheese and a burger later we had fully recovered from our mega walk. Absolutely stunning food, somewhere you wouldn't expect to see in a town like Keswick but couldn't fault it at all. We rolled back to our hotel with 2 happy full tummies thank you, will defo be back.

Description
The Metro Restaurant and Bar is often referred to as a Knightsbridge hidden gem. The Restaurant is a haven away from the busy pace around Harrods, Harvey Nichols and the shops surrounding Basil Street. Open from 7:30am until late each day, The Metro serves breakfast, lunch, afternoon teas and dinner. Our ever revolving menu has a selection of grazing plates to share as well as classic British favourites such as fish & chips, shepherd's pie and double baked souffle. The open kitchen adds to the informal atmosphere and focuses on using seasonal English produce.
Enjoy Happy Hour every week day between 5-7pm; two glasses of house wine and a bowl of nachos £8.00
See our Set Menu; 2 courses for £14.00 or 3 for £18.00
Opening hours: Mon-Sat 7.30am - 10pm, Sun 7.30am - 5pm. Private hire up to 40 available.

Staying in Knightsbridge

Neighbourhood Profile
Knightsbridge
When millions of tourists want to shop 'til they drop, they do it along Brompton Road and its boutique-lined tributaries, including the world-renowned Harrods. And when millionaires want to flaunt what they've already got, many of them find Knightsbridge and Belgravia the perfect place to do so, often behind stately mansion walls or down quiet private mews. Delve beyond the ultra-luxe exterior and you'll find some of this city's cosiest pubs, quiet gardens, and all sorts of indie retailers and enterprises worth a short exercise in spontaneous window shopping. For those looking to take a break from shopping, Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, and some of the city's most popular museums are nearby.
