The food was good and the service was great! We wound up eating there twice during our stay in Rio Grande because it was off the main road, easy to get to, and the food and service were so good!

We were pleasantly surprised by this restaurant and the food. We were nervous when we first arrived and there was only 5 people in the restaurant. We were also told by some locals that the place was not good. We had the BEST paella and I loved the Shrimp Mofongo with Garlic Sauce. Our waiter was excellent and extremely personable.

I honestly couldn't write enough wonderful things about this place. We went in, were seated by the most friendly host, who kept coming over to talk to us throughout the evening. We then were greeted by our server, ordered some mojitos on happy hour, WHICH WERE SO, SO, SO GOOD and ordered the fish ceviche as our appetizer and the... More

Jay was our service representative and he is amazing, making us feel like we were guests v. customers. Jay could not wait to make a recommendation, and because the menu is so expansive, we were happy to turn it over to him to advise us on drinks, appetizers, entrees and, even though we didn't ask, dessert. It felt very much... More

My husband and I ate at Metropol last night per the recommendation of one of our guides on a biobay kayaking tour. We were not disappointed - it was the best meal and service we have had in Puerto Rico!! It is a short drive from where are staying (El Conquistador) - near a KFC and a movie theater. The... More

We had been fishing that morning in Fajardo but the marina restaurant wasn't open so Captain Marcos sent us to this restaurant. It didn't disappoint. They fixed our fish 3 ways and we had a ultimate feast! They were so accommodating! We had a great time!

Unlike many restaurants in Fajardo, Metropol does not have the "rustic" look as the interior appears to be that of a restaurant rather than someones barn converted to a restaurant. That aspect of looking like a restaurant is refreshing from my point of view. It appears that the owners have spent some money to allow their customers a nice place... More

We had eaten in the Metropol in Isle Verde when we arrived in Puerto Rico earlier in the week and decided to try this sister restaurant in Fajardo which was closer to our resort. We were not disappointed. The service couldn't have been better. There were few people in the place and we were treated very well. I finally got... More

We were headed to a different restaurant in Fajardo but it was closed so we ended up at Metropol. We were a bit worried since it is in the parking lot of a strip mall but we had heard some recommendations so we gave it a try. They have a kids' menu which was a plus for us. We tried... More
