My friends and I really enjoyed our dinner here. My plaice was superb. I'm guessing this bar shares the kitchen with the Michelin Guide listed restaurant next door. I also had cream tea here and it was lovely.

We stayed at the Metropole for a few days - the food in cafe bar was good with an excellent selection.

Really bad food. I mean really. Chips straight from the freezer, old cheese and stale crackers. Lackluster service. Go to Padstow to eat. This place is dismal.

The beefburger we both had was quite nice and service was fine, but the cafe bar is so depressing that it just completely ruins the experience. We couldn't wait to leave and didn't bother with deserts....

Had yet another amazing stay at The Metropole. The food and service once again was amazing. There is no need to pay high prices at Steins when you can enjoy at the Metropole.

An extensive and varied menu including many local specialties. The crab cakes were particularly nice and we can recommend the pig cheeks or the fish curry. Good service and great view overlooking the harbour
