We were staying in Isla Verde and the Metropol was close by. It is a huge restaurant and quite busy. Nevertheless we seated almost immediately. Having had Cuban food the night before we opted for several appetizers and tortillas(omelettes). This turned out to be a good choice since the portions are large and the entrees would have been too much.... More

The food was very good. We were in bathing suits and cover-up thinking that it would be OK so close to the beach.

Metropol Restaurant is located in the Isla Verde area of San Juan. It's not much to look at from the outside, but don't let that stop you. It was very busy the night we were there, but service was friendly and prompt. Two of us got the Sampler dinner that was really tasty and very authentic Caribbean cousine. Would recommend... More

This is an authentic Puerto Rican restaurant. Walking distance from the Ritz, it has an excellent wine list along with truly Spanish cuisine. We ate a sampler plate along with our measuring stick of greatness...ceviche. The ceviche (grouper, here) was incredible. So fresh and perfectly accompanied with red onion, lime, and cilantro. The sampler plate was all deep fried -... More

If you're staying on Isla Verde in Puert Rico, Metropol is a centrally located restaurant serving good fare at reasonable prices. The service can be a bit slow, but that is fine. The congri that accompanied my fish was great as was the fish. They also make a great Cuba Libre....

Living in Isle Verde, I have eaten there many times and have noticed a couple of things that were very consistent here. The food was always good, the staff gave you the attention you deserve, and at a very reasonable price. It's was a very professional run establishment for a family-friendly restaurant.

We liked the Metropol so much we dined here twice in the 7 days we were there! A busy place filled with local families and tourists alike. Waiters were wonderful, very helpful with menu selections. I don't think you can go wrong ............everything was delicious. Enjoy!

Very good Cuban/Puerto Rican authentic food. The Paella Valenciana was to die for. Service was spot on. The "Worlds Best Margarita" was excellent.
