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.

Metropol is a family style restaurant providing consistently good, down home cooking. They make the best shrimp cocktail I've had and their octopus salad is divine! The octopus is served "clean", all the fatty parts peeled off and it is always freshly made. I love the "gallinita" stuffed with congri, a black bean and rice mixture. So good! Service is... More

When I decide not to cook and have my confort food close to home, Metropol is the place. Their empanadas, rice and beans and avocado salad are done to perfection. Can't miss their arroz con pollo, it's worth the wait. Guaynabo location has very pleasing waiters and fast service.

This been a local favorite forever. They're consistent and always consistent. I've been coming here for 30 years. Favorites of mine are, tamal en hoja, sopa de frijoles. Gallinita rellena and palomilla con yuca. Great place to go with the family and friends. Gave it 4 stars because lately the place is kind of dirty.

Pros Excellent food Price Service Cons None so far Having moved to the island from Doral FL, I must say, I really like this place. It reminds me of a famous Miami based restaurant called La Carreta. Metropol is the closest thing I've found to real Cuban food in the island so far. I would recommend the Masitas de puerco... More
