El Metropol: "discover the local food, great price" Metropol Tip by sling3

Metropol, San Juan: 7 reviews and 8 photos

We've been to the one near the hotels at Isla Verde. They've got two other locations on the island.
A lot of people go there, locals and tourists. Very nice atmosphere, small, but not too small place (they had some tables for up to 15 people), the tables are close one to each other, so it's not what we can call a quiet place, it's more a living place :-)
Employees are very elegant in their suits with their bow tie.
They've got a parking if you come by driving.

It's local family food, generously served (I haven't been able to finish my dish, neither my wife).
Excellent local food, a great experience !

Favorite Dish: I've taken the "Cubana Fiesta", assortment of 5 entrees from Cuba.
My wife wanted to pick the Zarsuela, with a lot of seafood, but changed her mind finally for a Gallena something (don't remember the name sorry), a stuffed "little chicken".
Both were delicious !
