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.

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 stopped in here for a drink or two and lets just say the rest of the day is a bit fuzzy. I ordered a mojito and I couldn't stop myself from ordering 1 after another as they were so delicious. The servers are really nice and friendly and the location is great.

A friend invited me and my husband here for dinner while we were on a stopover on a cruise. He was very familiar with the restaurant and the staff, so we got great service and fantastic food. I ordered the steak and it was excellent. I'm usually not able to eat all of my meal, but the steak was so... More

Nice restaurant with a good atmosphere in the heart of Old San Juan. Great drinks, especially the frozen mohito. Steak empanadas were very tasty. Island time in full effect but service was friendly :)

WOW, these house special cocktails were delicious! I was told they must have 1000 calories so I switch to beer. I don't that though. Very attentive service. Food was very good and plentiful. Ribs and steak ( I don't remember what they called them) pies were great. Reasonably priced. Have some fun and check it out

The food was good, The Rioja was good. The service was a little slow. It was weird that our waiter bussed several tables before even taking our drink order. In his defense, I don't think he was told he was our waiter, he just realized we had been sitting there for 10 minutes.

We went to the parrot club with a group of 6, it was all if our favorites! The food was fantastic! We had a variety of food ranging from steak, to shrimp, to fish tacos. All which were delicious. Our waitstaff was friendly and helpful. I would go back in a heart beat and would recommend to all she groups.

It was our first night in town and the perfect way to kick off several days... tasty food, very friendly servers and lively atmosphere. This place stays on 'the rotation' when we are in town... good Latin American eats!

The first time we were here was 6 years ago and the food was very good so we decided to go back. We were most disappointed. The food was ok, nothing special as we had remembered. Although they'd still make a great mojito, I will not be going back there.

Stopped in for lunch -- cubano and fish tacos. Both very good and decent price for a tourist town. Nice place to escape the heat and relax!
