I was a little disappointed when we arrived to find basically a hispanic TGIF or Applebees. The food was reasonable but nothing great. I had the chirassco and my wife had the smoked chicken. Although the staff was very friendly and the meal was tasty, I expected much better and perhaps a more local experience.

We visited Metropol after receiving a recommendation from a stateside friend with a local relative. After dining at a local resort for several days, my family and I decided to venture out to experience the local restaurant fare. Metropol was a wonderful surprise. We turned our dinner over to our waiter, Jay; telling him we wanted to experience authentic PuertoRican... More

The food is awesome, the service excellent and the prices are very reasonable at about $12-15 per entre. Twelve of us were in Puerto Rico on a family vacation with ages ranging from 9-60. Everyone liked the restaurant so much that we came back for dinner two more times.

This Cuban restaurant serves huge portions of perfectly prepared latino food, enough to share. Great prices, courteous service. Try the palomilla steak, or the gallinita rellena de congri. Yum!

This was one of those places away from our resort which we could actually afford. Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining about the prices at the resorts, they are as expected but a 15 minute drive from our room and we were in culinary heaven. I had a Cuban dish (of course I can't remember the name) and my... More

Our last night in Farajdo PR we went to Metropol for my boyfriend's birthday. Kelvin was our waiter and he made it extra special. The food was exquisite and generous portions. I could only dream of a restaurant like this at home.

We moved to PR in December and I have been wanting Salmon and finally a great taste of Salmon. It was so good. My husband had Zarzuela (sea food dish) was very good he said. I highly recommend Metropol. The staff were so friendly. Great prices as well and have happy hour. 2 for 1.
