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.

We had such a delicious dinner here. The plantain nachos are a must-have! Our server was so great and the kitchen staff was great to watch through the windows. They even posed for a picture!

The food was good and the service was good also. An average restaurant. We were there for a late afternoon lunch.

I travel to San Juan every 4 month on business and have had my fair share of meals there. I ate here tonight with 3 business colleagues. We were greeted promptly and seated immediately. We ordered 3 appetizers; beef empenadas, cerviche and fish tacos. Do not miss the fish taco appetizer! They are the BEST! All four of us were... More

Located within the old walls of old san juan, this bar/restaurant seems to be an ok place to visit. The atmosphere does change during peak season times. The service is ok, food is ok. Nothing special.

I went for a late lunch with an important and demanding client. Since we walked in we felt comfortable. It's great for business lunch. The colorful decoration provides a nice atmosphere. We were hungry so both went directly to the main dish, a delicious fish perfectly grilled. The service and attention to detail was a 5 stars.

We had spent the day touring around and decided we needed a break. As we were walking down the street we spotted this place and loved the name so we stopped in. What a delight! The mojitos were fabulous! We ordered the Puerto Rican nachos and they were made with fried plantains and pork. Can't go wrong with that combination!... More

My husband and I stopped for lunch while exploring Old San Juan. The city was surprisingly quiet, unlike the day before when three cruise ships were parked outside of our hotel. We woke up early to explore the city and we were ready for lunch just before noon. We ordered a few drinks (rum punch and margarita) and he had... More

We did not eat anything at this location but I highly recommend the margarita on the rocks or the coconut mojito. The margaritas are made with fresh lime, lemon and orange juice. Friendly staff, good location.

My husband and I usually stop by The Parrot Club for a drink whenever we are in Old San Juan. This time we decided to try lunch there. Our server Paulo was excellent.

Thanks for making us you and your husband's go-to for drinks whenever you're in the area! I'm glad you enjoyed the fish tacos (even if they weren't your first choice!), and I'll be sure to share the compliments with Paulo. Hope to see you again the next time you're in Old San Juan!
