Fast Service, Great Quality, Daily Specials!

After working long hours being able to eat a delicious meal was key. Metropol was a great find in close proximity to our office. The service was always great, helpful staff, both english and spanish available. The food was great and they have a variety of options available.

Metropol have multiple outlets in the San Juan area. The one in Guaynabo doesn't look like much from the outside but is reasonably nice on the inside. Food is of generally good quality - I would in particular I would recommend the gallinita rellena, the stuffed little hen.

Being a regular at the Hato Rey restaurant, I had never had lunch here. The service is good as in the Hato Rey locale. The baked half chicken was dry and overcooked which was a surprise because in the Hato rey place it is juicy and tender. Otherwise, good overall. You cannot beat the prices for the offerings.

We've been coming here forever. Even though quality has changed a little bit it still is pretty consistent. We come or order to go regularly. They have many locations but we go to the one in Guaynabo. In general it's good food and not that expensive. Tamales are my favorite.

My family goes there very often. It specializes in Cuban fare but then it also indulges in puertorrican and seafood. It is very tasty and you can have a very good lunch or dinner at a very affordable price. Service is usually very good. so yes I recommend the restaurant.

They have a few restaurants across the island, I went to three of them and the service is always good, the Cuban food is amazing (gallinita rellena with congri rice), and they always have the same good flavor in each one of their restaurants. Very consistent threw the years with service and excellent food flavor.
