Came here this weekend and we had a great time. There is happy hour on the weekdays including vodka, dewars, beer, and mojitos (no flavors included). The best part about the location at the Sheraton is the staff. In particular Yadi! She was so great, upbeat and cheerful. Her drinks were good and her menu recommendations were on point. The...

Everything on the menu is very good and the service is great. Prices are fair. You can go day or night for a filling and satysfying meal.

Listen! Metropol is my fav for the taste, family atmosphere and value! The food was sooooooo good! And they gave tons of it. Huge portions and perfectly priced. The service was great. We ate there for lunch and dinner. I will be visiting again. It wil be my PR staple.

Metropol is a Puerto Rican Classic but of Cuban Food. The place has been in operation since the 70s. Still the menu is modern , real Cuban Food with Puerto Rican favorites makes Metropol alway a good selection.

We walked over from the El San Juan hotel. This was a nice restaurant. And it was busy with locals which tells you something. We ordered WAY too much off the menu. We could not eat it all, so you might consider splitting your meal. The "pitcher of sangria" is a good deal. I think it was $12 USD. Good... More

Another favorite dining spot in Puerto Rico, great food, great service at a reasonable price. The garlic bread is superb and you'll still enjoy the flavor the next day..several locations, the one by the airport is my favorite.

This place is great! The bread was tasty and the paella was amazing! Be prepared to wait a good 45 minutes for it but let me tell you it's worth the wait!

Not sure what the hype is - the service was terrible and the food less than mediocre, and no one cared. Find another place to eat.

This was a good place to walk to from our hotel (El San Juan Hilton). It's next to the cockfight arena, creepy! The food was good but not great. We had seafood mofongo and a seafood stew. We also had tres leches and it was good, small portion which was fine for us.
