My family and I stayed at El Conquistador but were looking for places to eat outside of the resort. We were looking for something more along the lines of what the “locals” would be eating. What we had in mind was just hand-held food like empanadas and the like, that we could just grab-and-go. Unfortunately we were directed by locals... More

This restaurant across from the Caribbean Cinema was a delightful surprise. The impressive menus had something to please everyone. I had the avacado salad which had a beautiful selection of greens, tomatoes and a generous amount of avacado. My main course was the delicious churrosco monfongo made with perfectly cooked steak and a combination of plantains. The creamy homemade flan... More

I was in this restaurant this past week. It specializes in cuban, puertorrican food. The menu is excellent and have a lot of options. Fish, meat and chicken. The wine list is excellent for a local restaurant and the sangria locally made is very good. Service wise, it was an off the chart experience. The waiter that I got was... More

You will be delighted with the garlic bread they bring right away, I think the best I have had. I enjoy the skirt steak at Metropol. They have a good wine selection also. Service is excellent and attentive.

Nice building but average to poor food, with heavy starchy fried recipes, frozen veggies as sides, and plastic menus covered with greasy fingerprints. Not going back.

We have visited Metropol many times and has always exceeded our expectations; as usual food was outrageous, Parcha Mojito superb and desert deliciouly sweet. We had "Chuletas Can Can" and Palomilla Steak, Black Beans with rice and avocado salad. Xavier took great care of us as well as the other attendants there tonight. A regular dinner became a special evening... More

The food was incredible, everyone in my family enjoyed their dish as well as the appetizers. Echoing many of the reviews, the restaurant was not very full but it seemed like there may have only been one waiter working. Service was very slow but the food made up for it.

Our experience was a very mixed bag. We both got empanadas which were listed as "con queso," so we expected a cheese filling, but it was normal meat with a cheese whizzy (although very spiced) dip. No complaints though, they seemed freshly home made, as were garlic bread slices. I ordered ropa vieja, which came as part of my wife's... More

At 6:45 we arrived to a large, almost empty restaurant. When we left at 8:30, only 3 other tables had been occupied. We and others ate in the large and attractive bar, where three TVs ran continuously. The air conditioning kept the place very cold. None of the waitstaff spoke more than a smattering of English. Despite these drawbacks, the... More
