The experience was a comedy of errors on the restaurant's part. The appetizer order all wrong, we we had to wait for over an hour for the for our meal. Half of meals were cold other half were served wrong. One meal even contained pieces left over from another customer's meal. Half heartened excuse was given for atrocious service.

Been here many times. Great food, price and service. Obviously the specialty is Cuban food like Congri (mixed rice with black beans and pork meat) with Ropa Vieja (shredded meat) and amarillos (yellow plaintains) or Mofongo stuffed with fried meat or seafood.

Had never heard of Metropol before my recent visit and nice to find out that they have several locations throughout Puerto Rico. You get that upscale feel but down-home treatment. We arrived between lunch and dinner so we received extra attention and our head server made sure we enjoyed this experience. Our party of seven was accommodated and the menu... More

Ordered the churrasco stuffed mofongo. I was apprehensive but it was good. Everyone was happy with their choices. Service was a little slow since the place was not busy. The sangria was very good. Prices are average. Good specials.

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.

We dropped $200 for 6 people and 3 of the 6 only had appetizers!!!! Where do I start? My niece had the $43 lobster tail... overcooked, chewy. I had queso frito, good, but waiter forgot to bring it so it came out late. Cod fritters we like potato chips, they were flat wafers, didn't taste like any fritter I have... More

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.
