Excellent Puerto Rican Food

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... read 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

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!
