They have excellent service but tour dinner was the worst that we ate. The only things good was the beverages a passion fruit frappe and the guy who attended us.

The fried red snapper and the fish ceviche were both very good. The grilled mahi-mahi was awful. The mofungo was average. With a bill of $132 for two drinks, two appetizers, and four dinners, this restaurant is serving decent (and no better) food at a premium price.

Delicious food - tostones are best - the rice/bean dishes are so good...and lamb is amazing....but the Chicken Soup - you must order! If you get Kelvin as a waiter, give him a good tip, and a hug from Capt. Ray and I.

We had a great meal at Metropol in Fajardo. We told Mike that my wife had not really ever experienced good Puerto Rican/Cuban food. He took our menus and said, "Trust me, I'll give you a good experience." I told him I liked pork and my wife liked fish. Mike did an awesome job of bringing us all kinds of... More

What a disappointment! We had rude service, mediocre food, and were rushed out while we were still eating! I am surprised at the good rating this restaurant had on trip advisor; I would never recommend that anyone try this place. You would get better food going to the café in Ralph's food market. I'm serious, Ralph's food was great.

I'm not very adventurous with trying new foods, but this place was so amazing. I ordered the pot roast, with rice and beans and plantain, which my husband and I shared and he was full and I brought half of mine home. Our friends ordered a half baked chicken with the black bean rice and I was wishing I had... More

I went with my friend to have lunch and as always we spent a great time. We had "churrasco", white rice, beans and fried plantains, the food was delicious, with a lot of flavor and the service was awesome.
