Tried Metropol based on reviews and proximity to our hotel. I had the smoked chicken with black beans, rice, and fried sweet plantains. This chicken was amazing - flavorful, juicy, tender. And the black beans. I could've eaten those all day. Service was friendly and prompt. Would definitely recommend for a nice lunch or dinner if you're in the area.

I immediately used the restroom before dinner. One of the waitresses was in the bathroom mirror popping pimples on her chest and yelling OUCH! Should have been an indicator of what was to come.... Our first waiter took our drink and food order and then he introduced us to a young girl who would take over. Not sure why. We... More

Since I did not travel all over San Juan and mostly walked to places within my hotel area, I can not speak for all of San Juan but this was a good, average place to eat. Prices seem to be on the high side, but so was everywhere else.

Moderately priced meals with a lot of choices at large portions!! My kids love the churrasco with rice and beans. They'll serve a variety of drinks and beers. Great place for a family meal that won't cost a lot.

When you see a bunch of locals dining, you know you're in the right spot. We ordered the ground beef dish and the half chicken... Both were exceptionally tasty! This place is right next door to the cock fights. So my animal loving cousin wouldn't walk past to get here! She missed out on the food for sure. Moderately priced... More

Mofongo was too dry, but our server was ok. The wait for our food wasn't too long. I wouldn't recommend going back there, the food was ok, nothing special

Everything we had was delicious. I had the fajitas and the portion was really large (enough for another meal). The service was fantastic too!
