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.

“Great lunch and dinner spot conveniently located!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2013

This is a fun, friendly, moderately touristy restaurant conveniently located in Old San Juan. Started here for lunch on our first day for delicious ceviche and the CREAMIEST PINA COLADAS in town and returned for our last dinner in the city. For dinner we ordered the nachos from the appetizer menu. The nachos are made with plantains (Weird? Ingenious? Decide for yourself!). Staff was incredibly accommodating and friendly. Great spot!!

“Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2013 via mobile

Nice clean restaurant with good food. The Triple sandwich was enough for 2 people, it was at least a footlong filled with 3 kinds of meat, the crispy chicken BLT also good. My soup "Sanchoco " was very tasty. Staff very attentive!

One of the best meals we've had yet. Wait staff was excellent. Food was delicious. Piña colada is yummy too! Worth the stop in Old San Juan!

“Great Service, drinks, and food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

The waitstaff is very attentive without hovering, and helpful in making selections. The mojito I had was top notch, as were the empanadillas, grouper, and mofongo. Portions are very generous, so you may only want one appetizer or the mofongo to share if two people get a main dish. They apparently have live music on some nights, but did not when we were there (on a Thursday).
