My first visit to Metropol was in 1995 on a business trip. I haven't been back to Puerto Rico since. For authentic Cuban food this place is hard to beat. Packed with locals on a Friday night is always a good sign. We recommend the Cuban sampler to share. It has a wonderful variety of meets, root vegetables and rice... More

While staying at the Hyatt Place in Bayamon we took an Urber taxi to the town of Guaynabo where we had been told that this was one of the best Puerto Rican dinning place. Inside it was just average with mostly natives of the area eating and drinking. We ordered Boliche Asado al Caldero Congri Maduros Fritos and Pudin Diplomatico... More

Metropol was in walking distance from our hotel, so my hubby and I decided to try it for lunch. Awesome choice! The food was beyond delicious, and the portions were enough to share. I had slow roasted pork, yucca, black beans and rice... it was amazing! The food wasn't the only treat, the sangria was so yummy!!! We couldn't get... More

I would not suggest ordering the conk, it was old and from frozen. I didn't enjoy the mufongo either, but others did. (I liked it at other restaurants). Plaintain nothing special either. Small but decent.

The food is good not exceptional. Very good service and always crowded. If you really want to taste our original island food go to Rest La Casita Blanca in Calle Tapia, Santurce. The attention and food is amazing with better prices. No A/C but is worth it The owners make you feel like family.

Thank Jose C
