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

The Metropol Guaynabo is my go to restaurant when I crave the Cuban flavor and want a down-to-earth fair priced simple dinning or lunch honest meal. It is clean, large, has good service , the food is GOOD and the portions are large to huge. I love to start with a Cuban tamal. This is a family restaurant and it... More

Very nice restaurant for family gathering and activities. Good cuban food in the center of nice neighborhoods. Great for groups celebrating birthdays or anniversaries. We enjoy eating there a lot.

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.

Modestly priced, excellent quality Cuban /Puertorican fare. Good service, non descript ambiance. One of my favorites

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

The food is OK .... just that. If you like the traditional cuban cuisine is a good option. The price is reasonable for the restaurant level. Usually is overcrowded, so the atmosphere is a little bit uncomfortable (I rather prefer the Isla Verde location of this restaurant).
