We had two meals here during our stay. The pernil on Saturday was very good. Our second meal wasn't as good. Not as good as the Metropol in San Juan.

We ordered the trifongo with steak - The trifongo was a new take on the mofongo which has yuca, sweet plantain, & plantain. I highly, highly recommend to order the mofongo like this. You won't be dissapointed. The ambiance was great also. It is right off the highway. Loved this place.

We are staying at the Las Casitas resort and drove our rental car out to this restaurant. It was a wonderful experience, especially due to our waiter Jay, who treated us like family. Jay even ordered for me…I did not know what I would be getting but it was a delicious dish of chicken breast and yuca wrapped in bacon.... More

We have eaten at this Metropol several times. They feature generous Cuban dishes. It is a large, attractive space. I would recommend any dish with black beans.
