This restaurant specialises in cuban/tropical cuisine. The food is very good and the service is excellent. They have daily specials and prices are reasonable.

The food was delicious and the service was excellent. This is one of the best places to eat Cuban food. We were a party of four and each person enjoyed food. Highly recommended!

Get there early --- meeting place for many just to have a drink or meet with friends and family. Food is good. Love the "bacalaitos" (cod fritters). The kids always go for the chicken wings or the "churrasco" (skirt steak). Shrimp mofongo is good as well as the "serenata de bacalao".

Basically you can't go wrong in Metropol. One of my favorites. Cuban cuisine at it's best! From stuffed little chikens or "gallinitas" to "Ropa Vieja" with "congri" rice. Very cool place.

Every day there is a different special. They have a great kids menu if kids are tired of boring food. They are cheap compared to other good restaurants. My oldest grandchild loves their rice and beans, tostones, and their avocados with onions on top. They are the best Puerto Rican restaurant you could possibly go to in Puerto Rico.
