Description: The Parrot Club is a nuevo Latino bistro and bar in the SOFO area of Old San Juan on Fortaleza Street. The Parrot Club is a longtime favorite of locals and visitors who enjoy a fun, friendly atmosphere, delicious Latin flavors and wonderful cocktails.Established in 1996, The Parrot Club quickly became a San Juan classic and a SOFO standard. Featuring innovative nuevo Latino cuisine from Chef Guillermo Gonzalez, the Parrot Club's menus spice up classic Latino dishes by combining fresh, local ingredients with modern culinary preparations. This results in flavors that are fresh and exciting. Try the Ropa Vieja Nachos, Pan Seared Shrimp with Arroz Chifa and our own Chocolate Coco Tres Leches.The impressive long blue bar is a scene in itself. Don't miss our world famous Parrot Passion, a frozen blend of Bacardi Limon, fresh orange and passion fruit juice or our classic mojitos.The Parrot Club was designed to take advantage of the colonial architecture of the building with its huge archways and tall beamed ceilings. The colorful art and design is vibrant and happening. Look into the open kitchen or step out to the lovely palm filled courtyard, perfect for private events or dining under the stars.With live Latin Jazz, a terrific weekend brunch, and family friendly lunch daily, there is always something going on in this exciting restaurant.

Very friendly and helpful with giving us suggestions. I had wanted to order one item off the menu but unfortunately it was not available and Paulo quickly... More

The four of us ate a most incredibly delicious salad, mofongo, fried yucca, chicken empanada topped of with the creamiest Pina Colada. Would have eaten there everyday if we could have. Staff was very courteous.

We were not that impressed with the food at The Parrot Club. It was average and a little over priced. We wanted to go to Marmalade, Aguaviva, or DRagonfly but were closed so we hit Parrot Club.

Our guests happiness is always top of mind, so it's disappointing to hear that you weren't more impressed with us. We take pride in all of our offerings, and only serve the freshest ingredients, so it's rare that we hear that our food falls short. I hope you'll consider giving us another shot the next time you're visiting. I'm confident... More

My wife and I stopped in at 430 and had wonderful apps and drinks to get out of the heat and start us off. Giovanni was a fun and energetic server who consistently went above and beyond his job to make sure we were happy; and we were. Black Bean Croquets and Plantain Nachos are must as is their Filet....

We ate there while visiting San Juan. Food was great and service was great. Kind of expensive. I think everything in Puerto Rico has gotten expensive.
