Good food, exelent service

The food is excellent and will accommodate special requests. Service is very good, friendly and timely without overwhelming you. Is on the expensive side but is worth it.

I'm not a big complainer in general, but it was crazy slow. My brother loves nearby and likes this place, so I think it was an off night for them. I honestly can't remember the food quality either way, so it was probably average. Took well over an hour and then things weren't correct so we had to send some... More

My husband ordered the ropa veija mofongo and it was delicious!! I ordered the yuca on mojo and was disappointed it was bland. The grouper was good though!

our hotel recommended metropol for good black bean soup. I guess we should have ordered that. I got picadillo because my Cuban inlaws used to make it. My husband got shredded beef. The yellow rice comes cooked with something like hot dogs inside. which i guess is the "local" type but definitely not the yellow rice of paella. Both of... More

Went for lunch our last day in PR. Was recommended by our driver upon arrival and then another guest at our hotel who used to work in PR told us about it too and had eaten there on his trip too and said it was still as good as he remembered. I Ropa Vieja which is one of their specialties... More

Ask for Jay! Jay! Jay! What a delightful, long-to-be-remembered experience. Thrifty Car rental suggested Metropol but Jay (our waiter extraordinaire) suggested the entrees. Originally, all four of us were going to order the mofongo, a Puerto Rican specialty, since none of us ever tried it. Our waiter, thankfully, thought otherwise. Instead he brought us a plethora of cuisine delicacies, a... More

This place was great, white table clothes but not over the top expensive. Good food, we had the Cuban sampler plate and it was great, service was very good as well.

We found the restaurant quite by accident but made it there again I our two days in the area. We were in the outskirts of Loquillo, only about a 5-minute drive from the restaurant. We enjoyed the food so much and thought the portions were very generous. We also appreciated the wait staff. Definitely a bargain and good food.

Metropol, I have always loved the food. The flavor is amazing and the staff is very nice. I always enjoy the all time classic empanada de res.... its the best.... but would it kill the restaurant owner to invest in new carpet or maybe some tile... also, what about cleaning the restrooms, and the tables. Again I want to be... More
