Metropol is one of the best places to go if you want cuban-puerto rican food. Once you are in, they serve you with some water and bread. Food is delicious and you can dine on a budget if you choose the deals. I can tell that they sell the best Cuba libre in town. The desserts are not very surprising,... More

I was visiting on business and the hotel referred us to this restaurant. We wanted authentic PR food and were not disappointed. We actually visited twice during the 5 days we were there, got the same server (female, don't know her name) who was extremely accommodating, pleasant and did her best to be flexible with our requests. Additionally one of... More

Most of the times I order the same plate... steak with onions, congri rice (mixed with black beans) and ripe plantains!! Delicious combination! But, this time we went to Metropol at Barceloneta Outlet Mall. When I ordered the same plate, the waitress told me if I... More

This place is nice, I’ve been there twice for lunch (business) and both times we had a nice experience. Since it was lunch there were a lot people, but, the waiting time for the table was reasonable and the food came in fast, considering the time of day and the amount of people there. The service was good and the... More

Most plates are delicious and include a large portion of quality food. Whenever I visit the Premium Outlets of Barceloneta I always try to visit. Service is also great. Drinks are not the best but they do have a good wine selection menu. Try the traditional black beans with white rice and the bistec de lomillo or the mofongos. Cant... More

The Food is Average and the service is regular. The congri rice is bad and lack of the really cuban taste. The tostones taste like frozen ones.

It's ok. Heard a lot from locals. I went to the Barceloneta one. Food is average for the price and hype. Didn't see anything special about the place.

Went to this restaurant on the recommendation of a friend. While the service was ok, the food was unacceptable. I had the meatloaf and would not recommend.

We were a family of three. I'd been there several times. They have a good variation of foods, appetizers, deserts and drinks. The food was great, good environment, good price and excellent service. Very well located in the Outlets of Barceloneta, about one hour of San Juan.

Thank Carmelo S
