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.

I wrote a review last month stating how great this place was. However, today I am very disappointed of the service, speed of service and overall satisfaction. We (a party of 2) waited 56 minutes for our meal. Our server was totally indifferent and careless about us. He seemed to be more interested in the table near by (who seems... More

Food is quite good, but very short of excellent or exquisite. Food presentation is neat. A good place to get together for a business meeting. I did find them expensive for the amount-type food combination.

Consistently good food and service. Probably best restaurant in the Metropol franchise. Great family restaurant where locals eat. There is a very nice sports bar too. Separate from the main salon.

The "Montuno Cubano" is the best! You have a piece of everything Cuban in a plate. Love this dish and the amarillos are to die for.

I have been to other locations at lunch time, but this one is the busiest. The baked chicken w sweet plantains and rice was real good. The amount of food for lunch was more than I could eat, but I finished.

I go here a lot and every single time the service is excellent! There are many servers and everyone is properly trained. The food is always excellent and delicious! I really love their daily freshly made soups.
