That's what we read: BEST SCHNITZEL PLACE IN TOWN SINCE 1961! With a statement like this there should be some truth behind. The Vienna Schnitzel we ordered was served very fast and turned out to be the DRIEST thing I ever ate, the Homemade Apple...More

The restaurant was very busy so there was a bit of a wait for a table and for the food to come out. We all enjoyed a very fresh (and garlicky) Caesar salad to start followed by the schnitzel which was large and delicious. Fries...More

Had the chicken paprikash. Portions are large. Homemade spaetzle. Just like my Oma used to make. Waiter Ian was pleasant and joked with us. Go early as they sell out.

Dropped in mid afternoon on a Saturday. Staff was charming and helpful. Ordered schnitzel with mushroom sauce, spätzle (noodle) and red cabbage... everything was very good, although the noodle may have been reheated, as it stuck together in an odd way. Overall, very tasty and...More

The meal wasn't too big which was nice, It was just the right size. Very "hofbrauhaus" (Yes, I've been there). Oh, did I mention the food and service were great too?

I was raised German. I learned long ago to make Schnitzel and red cabbage. Metro's is excellent, and they set the bar for their home fries. Wish I knew how they made those fries. I was told that their red cabbage comes straight from the...More

There are many restaurants across the Czech Republic that serve mostly schnitzel in the same way we do here at the Metro. No matter what schnitzel you choose from our menu, we hope you truly enjoy this traditional dish as much as we enjoy serving it!
