We ate more than we needed, the food was great. Excels at serving real Cuban food, croquetas, masitas de puerco, frijoles, all good. Also has fare for American tastes (good steaks). Made reservations for a large party (7 adults, 2 toddlers, one baby) and they accommodated us easily, with room and high chairs to spare. This is not my first visit to the Metropol, and it did not disappoint, still great service, good to excellent food, and only one minor complaint: My son wanted a Cheeseburger after 7 days of PR food, and asked the waiter for medium; the waiter replied, "We only have one size." Make sure you connect, ask for help if needed. This is the first time this has happened, apparently a new waiter. The older ones are much better.

Waiter forgot one of the items we ordered, and we had to seek him out at the end in order to get our check. The turnovers we ordered were way too much dough and very little filling. Sausage in wine was so-so. Good mojitos. Overall, a disappointment.

We had a very filling and delicious dinner here - the stuffed Cornish Game Hen was really tasty! The menu was large and varied. Service was efficient, but not overly friendly.

Great local cuisine at reasonable prices!! Red snapper and Cuban style chicken are great choices. And make sure you order the black beans and rice and mix them together. Mmmmmm. Best I ever had!
