Two youngish and personable waiting staff who were relaxed and appeared to enjoy their work. We felt very welcome. The home cooked pizza was very good and my gourmet burger (not my normal choice) was also very enjoyable. I dropped my knife, the owner?/manageress? immediately brought another set of cutlery, only to be beaten by an adjacent diner. It was... More

Food good, fresh and good menu selection and the service was exceptional for a casual spot at a busy lunch time. Nothing was too much trouble and genuinely friendly staff. Will be back soon.

First night in Hobart, we went here for dinner, as it was walking distance from the Clydesdale Manor where we stayed on Sandy Bay Rd. Staff were extremely professional and friendly, the food was great. The Chicken Schnitzel was great, and so was the steak. Well priced for the market, and lovely atmosphere.

The Metz has a good selection of food which should appeal to all. The lack of a children's menu is an oversight as this can make a family meal expensive when ordering. Service very good!

Came here for a work function/conference. Great staff--can't fault them in any way. Drinks reasonably priced, food was great. Overall a great venue; would love to come here and hang with the locals. Loved it!

We had an early dinner here on a busy Friday night. The staff showed patience with my children's questions and made changes where possible to suit their needs. There is no children's menu but the waitress gave us some child friendly choices. The meals are a decent size and desserts are a good size to share after a large main.

I had a drink here after work with some colleagues. It has a comfortable seating area and the Sauvignon blanc was lovely!

On the spur of the moment because we were in Sandy Bay and we had been lucky enough to win a lunch at The Metz, we dined there yesterday and what a pleasant surprise. Excellent service and a very enjoyable meal. We had the fish of the day and it was perfectly cooked and a salad to accompany it. Delicious... More

Popped in for lunch and was pleasantly surprised. It was reasonably busy for a Friday lunch and I figure that is always a good sign. Ordered from the lunch menu and the food was fabulous and the portion generous. Great staff, but needed one or two more working. Overall well worth it.
