Great for any occasion, Metropol in Barceloneta offers fresh take on Cuban food on Puerto Rico. With over forty years of experience here, Metropol is sure to deliver a good meal.

Food

While the specialty here is Cuban food like pork and rice, many of the dishes have been adapted to the local culinary styles of Puerto Rico, and are thus slightly different than traditional Cuban food. Some of their most popular items include the Gallinita Rellena de Congri (cornish gen stuffed with congri rice), Ropa Vieja (shredded beef), Fiesta Cubana (combination of diced fried pork, cogri, cassava, pot roast, cured shredded beef, and a tamale), Palomilla Rellena (palomilla beefsteak stuffed with mozarella cheese, chorizo, and ham with mushroom sauce on top), and Puerto Rican style Stuffed Mashed Plantains.

Metropol Barceloneta is a bar and grill that offers Caribbean and Cuban cuisines, as well as seafood. When it comes to the level of formality, the setting here is informal. This dining option's open during both dinner and lunch, so consider giving it a try one day.

Ambiance

Because of the rather large dimensions of the restaurant, travelers may expect to dodge prolonged delays during peak hours. Plus, it is a great restaurant if you and your party are dining with a large party.

Metropol Barceloneta has one of the largest dining rooms of the Metropol chain, yet remains cozy and inviting with its warmly colored decor and comfortable booths. The theme is Cuban modern and there are a few pieces of Cuban artwork on the walls. The restaurant has a family ambiance. There are 32 tables in the dining room and 12 tables at the bar.
