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.

My family (3-college age and my wife) went to Puerto Rico for a week of vacation in mid-July. In Old San Juan, we were heading for a popular restaurant for dinner but it turned out to be too crowded. One block away we found The Parrot Club, which, while an odd name, was a great surprise to us. The decor... More

We truly enjoyed our meal, as well as the courteous service at this restaurant. Two of my party had the delicious vegetable empanadas. Others had a Cuban sandwich, shrimp sandwich and plantain nachos - all were delicious. The waiters were very attentive and pleasant.

Loved this place! The best place that we ate while in San Juan which says a lot since this was our 3rd visit to the island. Service was great and the food was superb!

We happened to stop by at Parrot Club while we were shipping in old San Juan as we really wanted to see the FIFA world cup finals. All other places were packed and the bartenders barely even looked at us. But it was different story here at the Parrot Club. The bartender was good, suggested nice drinks and made us... More

We asked the bartender in our hotel for dinner recommendations. The Parrot Club was at the top of his list. Our waiter, Joseph, was very friendly and spoke English well; he had the patience to explain the dishes. The food was very good. Cooked perfectly, seasoned but not spicy. Our steak was fork tender and side dishes tasty. For a... More

While in Old San Juan my husband and I visited the Parrot Club twice for appetizers and drinks. The staff was very friendly and the service excellent. They have a nice selection of wines and mixed drinks. It's a great place to relax and escape the heat of Old San Juan.

Would actually give this place 4.5 stars out of 5. The staff was attentive and the food was delicious. It's located right in a great shopping area. The bathroom was decent and had a machine in it I've never seen before where you could flat iron your hair for $2.00. Submitting a picture.

Attentive staff and delicious food? Sounds like a successful night out to us! You're right, we do have an on-site hair straightener. Seems strange until you experience Puerto Rican humidity -- it's unreal! Anyway, if you have any advice on what we could've done to make your experience with us even better, please don't hesitate to reach out. We'd love... More
