This restaurant is a "must" to try, if only for the spectacular room. The detailing of the ornate ceiling is striking with copper leaf, carved pink marble, palm trees and luscious woodwork. It's like dining in a palace. That said, they need to step up...More

Situé sur la trépidante Place de Brouckère, le Café Métropole vous propose une cuisine de type brasserie haut de gamme dans la tradition bruxelloise. La carte du Café renoue avec l’histoire de la création de cet établissement par la famille de brasseurs Wielemans-Ceuppens en 1890. On peut y découvrir une sélection exigeante de bières artisanales belges, venir prendre le thé et y déguster une cuisine subtile et raffinée.

Cette brasserie de luxe accueille ses clients dans un cadre Art Nouveau où les décors d’époques ont été conservés ; l’intérieur et l’extérieur du bâtiment étant classés. Les clients peuvent ainsi choisir, entre se poser dans le cadre intime et somptueux de l’intérieur du café ou prendre le pouls de la ville, été comme hiver, en s’attablant à la terrasse chauffée. Le Café Métropole propose 80 places à l’intérieur et 150 à l’extérieur, réparties en deux terrasses distinctes durant l’été.
Un soin particulier est employé à l’accueil et au service de la clientèle tout comme à la qualité des produits proposés, et ceci dans le souci légitime de ne pas faillir à la tradition d’excellence de l’Hôtel auquel le Café appartient.
Cette circulation des savoir-faire traditionnels et d’excellence entre l’intérieur de l’Hôtel et l’extérieur, son Café, contribue à favoriser les échanges dans ce lieu mythique où les bruxellois croisent depuis toujours des grands noms du cinéma, de la science, de la presse ou de la politique. Au cœur de Bruxelles, le Café Métropole est l’endroit idéal pour rencontrer des clients, faire une pause shopping, ou se retrouver, tout simplement.
