We did not eat there, I can only speak for the drinks. The mojito was one of the best I had on the island. To top it off it was happy hour so the delicious drinks were only $5. Although the place seems a little touristy, the bar experience was very nice. I am very glad we stopped in for... More

A group of eight of us came here for dinner on a Tuesday night. We should have walked straight back out the door when we saw that there were only about six other people in the restaurant. However, when in a larger group, one tends to follow the herd! The next warning came when we tried to order a bottle... More

Dear Richard, we are so disappointed to read of your unfortunate experience at The Parrot Club. On such a quiet Tuesday evening you should have received nothing but spectacular service from our team. We are investigating the situation and disciplanary action will be taken. The wine situation was inexcusably due to a new wine list coming out the following day,... More

The restaurant was a bit empty but that had no baring on the food and service. Service was excellent and the food (everything we ordered) was fantastic. A bit pricey but great food.

The "special" salad was just a big bowl of chopped lettuce with a sprinkle of bacon bits. The plaintain croutons were just those little ribbon-sticks used for garnish; two were layed across the salad, each about the size of a dry linguini. Little to no dressing. This was over $10. Though my grouper with crab/shrimp topping was tasty, but the... More

We went there for happy hour several times and also enjoyed several appetizers. Their flan is sublime. For whatever reason, we never had dinner but it looked to be a great place for dinner. Exceptionally friendly service.

We came across The Parrot Club after leaving another restaurant, Raices, where I saw a waitress leave the bathroom without washing her hands. Yuck. We were exhausted and hot after seeing the sites around old San Juan. The Parrot Club was awesome. The service was excellent and the food superb. If you are in San Juan check this place out.

This is a pleasant place with a nice tropical décor. We had $5 margaritas and mojitos during happy hour, and they were ok, and the price was right. My husband had a large salad and an appetizer of the coconut scallops. He enjoyed both, and the scallops were very good. I ordered the dinner entrée of grouper and vegetables. The... More

Caribbean food and atmosphere, in old San Juan, just a fun casual place to eat. We come here every trip. The food is good, not great, but it's the whole package. You feel like you're in Puerto Rico.
