Got here for breakfast, right next door to Harrods. Location is fantastic, lovely full English (London price £14) but exactly what you expect to pay. Well worth the money, nice food, good tea. Job done.

This restaurant is a superb little find at the back of Harrods, a stones throw from Knightsbridge tube tucked away in a small side street. I had been searching for a restaurant to take my elderly parents (one walks with a walking stick and walking is an issue) as we were visiting Harrod Grotto with my young daughter so it... More

We were a group of two couples living in a flat nearby and really loved this place. Relatively small menu, but everything was good and all in our group could be satisfied. The service was wonderful and very friendly. My favorites were the fish cakes and wonderful fish and chips, but there was lots more I would have loved to... More

Looking for somewhere to eat around Knightsbridge that isn't a fast food place or very expensive is a challenge, but this place is a gem. Relaxed environment with excellent customer service and great value for money on a select menu. The prawn cocktail is not to be missed.

Nice little place, well suited for dinner with kids in the area where there was not too many options. Easy place, good service and food was tasty.

Have always liked this little bistro style restaurant, a friendly, relaxing, pleasant welcoming venue for meeting friends for lunch or for just gathering your strength before stepping outside again! I met friends recently for lunch, we all had different main course. All were superbly presented, all was eaten! The staff were happy to change my starter of warm goats cheese... More

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

Staying in Knightsbridge

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
