As the title suggests, the fish tacos were excellent. Drinks good but not great. Would go back. Didn't order a full meal, just appetizers.

I really was not that hungry but my wife and daughter did were hungry. The service was outstanding, very well knowledgeable... More

My wife and I stopped by the Parrot Club for a lite meal before venturing out in Old San Juan. We shared calamari, ceviche,a mixed salad and a bottle of wine. What can I say, it's hard to mess up on a meal like this. The food was good, but nothing to write home about. The service was very good.... More

I must admit to being a little disappointed by the Parrot Club after all the online hype. We ate here during Las Fiestas and despite making a reservation for a nearly empty restaurant, we were seated directly underneath the kitchen service window, which ruined the ambiance for our "splurge night". Most of the appetizers listed on the menu were unavailable... More

We were greeted by David at the bar when we first walked in. He is a fantastic bartender with a great personality. The ambiance is clean and colorful and the food and service were both excellent!! We will be back again when we cruise to San Juan next month!!

Ropa vieja nachos - far and away the best bar food in old San Juan. Delicious mojitos, try them several ways (mango, traditional, Don Q, Barrilitos, etc.).

This was our 5th trip to Puerto Rico and if you are looking for a great Mojito then head to the Parrot Club for a Passion fruit Mojito. The empanadas and black bean croquettes are also very good.

This was by far our families favorite experience in San Juan food wise, everything was great from the snapper to the fish tacos! Our server Joseph made special drinks for all of us on the house, and their mango cheese cake was out of this world! Great experience all around!

We ate at The Parrot Club for lunch. For appetizers we had the calamari which was very over-cooked. The breading was dark brown. The price at $12 was fair. The arancini (fried rice balls with chorizo) tasted really good but were just slightly bigger than the size of a grape and you only get 4 in an order for $12.... More
