The food is very good, you can choose different types of Caribbean cuisine. The appetizer are good specially chorizos al vino (Spanish sausages in wine). The services is fast. The piña colada is not the best. The establishment require maintenance but restrooms are fine.

Metropol is one of those place that are consistent with its food. It always has good Cuban and Puerto Rican food at a good price.

Before our food was served our waiter forgot to bring the garlic bread and asked us if he had brought it when you can clearly see its not on... More

There are several Metropol restaurants on the island, resulting from the expansion of the first successful one. A local recommended this as the best place to try in Dorado, where we were staying on the island. On another day, we were traveling with friends who are Puerto Rican and we chanced upon the Metropol off of PR-3 just as you... More
