Metro Café

Wine and beer only

Ah, ma petite! If you want french food on a student's budget, the Metro is for you. Don't let the cheesy neon sign outside fool you. This place is cozy, friendly and heavy on the francais.

The Ambience:
Cute, clean and quaint. Local art on the walls. I've only been there in the rainy seasons it seems, but they have an outdoor patio in back which I'm sure is nice, weather permitting.

The Menu:
Very good values here. Fixed price 3-course meal for $15, cheaper on Mondays. Lots of meat, red wine sauces and fresh vegetables.

The Food:
I've never been impressed. I've read a lot of good reviews for the Metro Café, so I'm not sure where I've gone wrong, but every time I travel there, I feel like I traded the quality of food (mediocre) for the service and price. You get what you pay for, in my experience. But the crème brulee is mighty tasty.

The Service:
They're cute and french! Oui oui! Usually pretty friendly, a little quirky and very competant.

Reservations: Not necessary.

Overall: B
