Great food at inexpensive prices. If you have a huge appetite this is the place. They serve a lot at reasonable prices.

WOW! I think we over ordered just a little bit here... We were a group of 9 and easily ordered for 12+ people. I definitely recommend the stuffed cornish hen, smoked chicken, seafood paella, fiesta cubana (easily could be shared amongst 3 depending on how hungry you are). Can't remember what else was ordered but all the appetizers were great... More

This was a recommendation from the hotel. Overall the food was good. I had a Cuban Sampler dish that offered a variety of things. My GF ordered a beef and rice dish which was very good also. Prices were reasonable given the ambiance and food quality. The wait staff spoke marginal English and it was hard to communicate at times.... More

Metropol is a San Juan staple. They make some of the best and most authentic cuisine. Do try the pork chops and plantains. Everything is cook to order and is very fresh. From what I understand, they have 3 or so locations on the island. We visited the one in the Carolina area, closest to our hotel.

Travelling with a friend who speaks the language made our first visit to this restaurant wonderful. Tried many sampler plates and would not hesitate to do again. Good food - great prices!

Metropole was close to hotel. We ate there a few times while on vacation and the food was reasonably priced and good (except for one meal), had double pork chops that were over cooked and hard as rock, couldn't eat them. Aside from that one meal all others were very good. Service was adverage as was the atmosphere. If looking... More

Good food at a good price and good service. A fairly extensive menu which is predominantly Puerto Rican and Cuban cuisine. I recommend the mofongo with churrasco.
