Dining In Knightsbridge: The Knightsbridge Metro Restaurant Review

Where: The Knightsbridge Metro at The Levin Hotel, 28 Basil St, Knightsbridge, London SW3 1AS

The Knightsbridge Metro is housed downstairs in the charmingly art-deco Levin Hotel. Just a small trot away from Harrods and Harvey Nichols, it’s ideal for shop-until-you-droppers to sojourn for a late lunch or early dinner. The cosy 12-room hotel is above and the bistro-bar Metro is below. The restaurant is bright and the decor is warming. There’s an open kitchen where you can catch head chef Danny MacGechan at work. Marco Pierre-White’s The Canteen, Hawksmoor, and Soho’s L’Escargot are all chalked up on his CV.

The menu is simple sharing plates. Combine a selection of dishes, including falafel hummus, linguine, chicken curry, daily market fish, and asparagus with poached egg. First arrived the falafel hummus; it had all the chunky qualities of falafel mixed into a smooth hummus. English asparagus and poached hens’ eggs were a highlight. Chicken curry was very mild but tasty. We had this alongside fresh fish and small portion of oxtail. Tart of the day was a Bakewell tart, made traditionally and served warm with melting ice cream. The menu is good if you enjoy dipping into lots of very different flavours. The dishes can be hard to combine.

Knightsbridge Metro has an extensive wine list, a good fridge of craft beer, and a happy hour between 5 and 7pm. Homemade lemonade is often available and there is a great selection of tea and coffee to follow up your meal.

Overall Knightsbridge Metro is good value for money, considering its fantastic location. Dishes starting from £5 and bottles of wine around the £30 mark are available. It’s casual dining Tuesday to Sunday, 12-9pm. To book, call 020 7589 6286, email or visit the website here.
