Metro in Benmore Gardens is the place to be seen, and see. It is vibrant and comfortable, and well worth a visit. The waiters are well trained and know the menu – which offers a wide selection of Bistro food. One of the nicest things for me on this menu was that you can swap your chips option for mash, or potatoes, or veg! Metro offers comfortable seating inside, as well as outside. The outside section has heaters for winter and you will be cosy – and out of the ‘noise’. There is an upstairs bar which looks very comfortable. There is a wonderful hostess on a Thursday, Friday and Saturday night who will ensure you are well looked after, and feel special.
I went with my sister and I had the braised shoulder of lamb which was served with a crème fraîche mash. Kerry had Bifteki and chips. These mini beef patties were really good and my lamb was cooked to perfection. The starters, main meals and desserts are priced in line with any top restaurant in Somerset West, but the wine was expensive in my opinion. We had a bottle of Porcupine Ridge Merlot – 2009. The meal excluding the tip was R387.
Contact them on 011 883 2304 – even though we did not make a booking, I am sure this would be advisable over the weekend.
