This restaurant was recommended to us by a local. We were there last night 4/21/17, a Friday. Upon pulling into the parking lot it looked like there was no chance of eating any time soon, but much to our chagrin we pulled up and was greeted by a vallet parking attendant who was very professional. This is a great free... More

I dont recommend Metropol. Both my daughter and mt meal was overly salty and not tasty at all. I get a better mojito in NY. Expensive as well. Service was great though.

After walking by, reading reviews, and suggestion by hotel staff, we stopped in for a bite. Nice staff, drink was strong and had unusual taste. Our salads were bland, lifeless lettuce leafs, and 4 thin tomato quarters. Oil and vinegar dressing on top. My wife had the stuffed Cornish hen, stuffed w/rice and beans. She it tasted good. I had...

Family of 5 ate here today to grab last meal before flying back home. LOVED the Can Can pork chop (huge and flavorful)! Shirmp in garlic butter packed great flavor and the 3 meat Fiesta Cuban was fabulous.

We had the best waiter and the food was great unlike the surrounding competitors. We had a few bad meals on Isla Verde and finally found a place that the atmosphere and food was great. We left full and satisfied.

Went to Metropol on recommendation from many locals. It was so good! Started with the ceviche plate which was huge (plenty for 2-4 people I'm sure) and it was delicious. Not your average ceviche presentation, but it was very good. I got the mofongo with beef and it was delicious! Nice to try some Puerto Rican food in a nice... More

great variety of good and chef specials are a good selection to default to if you are unsure of what you want. We went to this place after our PR host/friend recommended it. In his own words, authentic cuban peasant food in an ambient atmosphere... Great place and a must have if you are a foodie...

This is the place! Not fusion, not noveau, just classic traditional Puerto Rican dishes in a clean, upscale setting, in quantities that will sink a battleship! Seriously, go there hungry and consider skipping the warm garlic bread to leave room for dessert, if not to just finish your main course.
