Nice place, but short of great.

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.

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.
