We've eaten at the Metropol numerous times over the years and never been disappointed. We usually go for a pot roast meal or perhaps a Puerto Rican dish. This time the waiter suggested filet of red snapper in a mango sauce. I opted for the rice congri ( rice and black beans) as the side. The piece of fish covered... More

Metropol has a big menu and serves a variety of interesting dishes. My husband and I have tried stuffed cornish hen, pork chops, red snapper fillet, grouper with a variety of delicious sauces and their special mixed appetizer platter which is really tasty. Sides are plentiful and delicious: rice and beans, sweet plantains, french fries mashed potatoes, cuban black beans.... More

Location is on a parking near Walmart movie theaters and fast foods So there is no scenic view. But the waiter was very friendly and entertaining and helped some of us who wanted to discover the real Puerto Rican food. It was a nice experience.

We were happy to stumble upon this delicious restaurant. My chicken was average, but my husband ordered the mofongo- actually trifongo, with different kinds of meats. It was delicious! The waiters were also of the most helpful I've ever had. I highly recommend it!

Don't think its closed when you drive by although it looks like it. The service was good but I was a little disappointed by the food I had. It was far from terrible but didn't stand out in my book. I had the Cuban sample platter and one of my meats was rock hard and very dry once I was... More

If you want tasty local food in a nice restaurant without being too fancy (I was in a swimsuit with nice coverup!) then this is for you. I had the best octopus I have ever tasted - it was tender and flavorful as part of their stuffed mofongo dish. Our group of 14 (ages 18 to 73) all enjoyed our... More

Easy drive from the resort where we were staying. Large menu with a mix of Cuban and PR dishes. Service was good. Prices were reasonable. All five of us enjoyed are meals.

This is the place to bring your family. The plates (amount) are large; service is great and the variety is good. Lots of Local PR food and some for the kids who might be picky eaters. Their Sangria is great, get the pitcher. Monfongos are good. I'd chose PR food here if I were you. You will get a flavor... More

We visit Metropol every time we go to Puerto Rico. Food and atmosphere are always top notch. We brought our traveling friends to this restaurant twice this week. There was nothing on the menu that we did not like. The Chef outdid himself. Jay, our waiter, was very attentive. He made the experience wonderful. He assisted us in our choices... More
