“Worth a Visit”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

The Metropol is a family oriented restaurant with good aviance and food. It is Cuban style cooking and the service is quick and friendly. The pernil is tasty, well cooked and will satisfy your craving for Puerto Rican food. There was also live entertainment at the bar and the musician was very good.

“Authentic Puerto Rican food”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

The Metropol Restaurant is a chain that provides authentic Puerto Rican fare. It is palatable, safe, and a worthwhile introduction to the various cuisines enjoyed on the island.

I recommend at least one or two visits for tourists.

“Still O.K.”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

I have been to this restaurant many times during the last six years and have always been satisfied, a couple of months ago, my freinds told me the food has gone down, I then went to dine again, well, not as much people as before, a lot of parking spaces, I ordered a soup and Churrasco as main dish, it was just as good as before, no wonder why my friend said negative? the service was still O.K. and the price was about the same.

“Mofongo at its best!”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

We could not leave PR without having mofongo! We cruised from San Juan and on our way back to the airport we asked the taxi driver to bring us somewhere near the airport where we could have a tasty mofongo....she dropped us off at Metropol and we were glad she did! Prices are very reasonable too.
