Must try the Asopao and the Chuleta Can Can

This place is nice and the service is friendly. Can be a little bit slow but they are trying their best. The best dishes we tried are the seafood asopao and the chuleta can can which u can def share with 2 or 3 people. The food was really good and they also have good selection of juices.

Our party went to Metropol upon arrival in San Juan. We asked our waiter for some recommendations, this being our first time to Puerto Rico he told us about Mofongo (plantain) with chicken breast $18. I decided on lechon (pork), rice and beans. Right away we noticed the waiter had an attitude, obviously because we made a different choice than... More

I went to this restaturant a couple times during my stay on the beautiful island and both times was amazing!! The portion size allows you to have two meals for the price of one. The waiter was extremely attentive and kind. Every request was met with a smile. A great time!!

The reviews didn't lie. We ate here on the last night of our stay. The food and service here was outstanding! I cannot complain about anything here. The Lechon (Pork) was amazing! I wish we had room for dessert but the portions were so large that we had to box up the leftovers.

A good overall local food menu with good options to try within a reasonable price. Not fancy but functional with a good environment.

WE saved going to the Metropol for our last day in Puerto Rico. We went for lunch. Our waiter was great. He was very attentive and eager to assist in making suggestions. The can-can pork was incredible and the rice accompaniment was equally as good. My husband loved his dish which was the equivalent of a fish stew with black... More

We ate here in San Juan on our way home from the BVI's. This restaurant was excellent with good service and good food and great margaritas. We walked there from our hotel and had a great time!

good Cuban food. loved the whole fish. friend bananas are the best. the flan and coffee is over the top. Really nice manager that walks around every table to make sure everyone is happy with the service. We also called in for the seafood paella to be prepared for when we get there. It takes 45 minutes for preparation.

The food was OK. Someone recommended that I come here and try the mofungo. The waiter recommended the seafood mofungo. It was OK. I didn't enjoy it, but I'm not sure if the mofungo was bad or if I just don't like mofungo. We got my son the ribs. I couldn't believe it was a kids meal - it was... More
