Our experience was a very mixed bag. We both got empanadas which were listed as "con queso," so we expected a cheese filling, but it was normal meat with a cheese whizzy (although very spiced) dip. No complaints though, they seemed freshly home made, as were garlic bread slices. I ordered ropa vieja, which came as part of my wife's... More

At 6:45 we arrived to a large, almost empty restaurant. When we left at 8:30, only 3 other tables had been occupied. We and others ate in the large and attractive bar, where three TVs ran continuously. The air conditioning kept the place very cold. None of the waitstaff spoke more than a smattering of English. Despite these drawbacks, the... More

Like all Metropol, this restaurant offers great food, large portions, excellent service, and good prices. Plenty of options in their menu.

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. Delicious!!!!. They also have a nice sports bar with live music on weekends. For lunch they have good... More

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.
