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).

Located in a shopping plaza .Once you open the door the place is jam- packed with customers. The food is very good especially the Mama's rice and beans. Table of six, everyone was satisfied. Kids meals are huge. Overall very good.

I have been there a lot and tasted a lot of their dishes. I can't think of one that was Ok. Definitely you can share a plate, they serve a lot. The food and service is excellent for the price. Family or business is a great place to go. You can also order and pick up.

Eventhough this is a frequent visited place, service is fast, food is good and waiting time is not as long as you can expect in other places.

Another guaranteed stop when visiting Puerto Rico. This is Cubanrican comfort food at its best from the mariquitas, black beans to Ropa Vieja! Service always quick and attentive at a great price point. Do not be intimidated if you have never been to a latin restaurant before, they are not foighting we are just normally loud by nature!

Average entree $16 or so. Large portions, fresh ingredients, good service, family oriented, If busy parking can be tricky, but we had no problems finding a spot as the restaurant has a lot of people going in and out, The Chicarrones de Pollos were OUTSTANDING! Definitively a great eating experience. Highly recommend.

This is the best Metropol restaurant of them all. Their are several in the San Juan metro area...but this one is by far the best one in terms of quality, taste of food, service and ambiance. Meat lovers...order a Palomilla beef filet "rebosado" with rice and beans...Also get their sorullitos for appetizers. Good, family - friendly restaurant.

Good cuban/rrican food in a nice atmosphere. The decor is dark and cozy with bright paintings on the walls. The service is fast and friendly. Its a good place for a business lunch or a family dinner.The mariquitas to start off are excellent.
