And thank you to the parrot,club restaurant for having such a wonderful and caring staff this goes beyond what I call Justin average restaurant. Sincerely Rodney Collins toms River New Jersey.
It was our last night in Old San Juan, we'd had good meals, and wanted to end with a great one, with authentic Puerto Rican food. We got one of the best meals we'd each had in recent memory. With great, attentive service, fun music, and quirky retro decor, it was a hit all around.
I didn't love the black bean cakes appetizer but my husband did. They were good, just not my thing. My entree was awesome - grilled, plantain encrusted dorado, with mashed potatoes and yucca. I love dorado, sometimes called mahi mahi there (though different than mahi mahi here). Adding plantains, which I eat with every meal there, was food heaven. Crispy, tender, juicy, mild (which I like) but not at all bland, just perfect. The mashed/yucca blend was fabulous.
My husband, at the suggestion of our great server, got the short ribs, and said they were incredible.
I was asked how sweet or sour I like my mojito. When it tasted strong and not sweet enough for me, they re-made it.
Dessert was wonderful. The music was great. Great experience, great night. Highly recommended.
We wanted to try some Puerto rican food during our brief stay and this restaurant had received good reviews. We went on a very quiet night so our opinion of the noise level is irrelevant, but I can certainly imagine it being a lively spot. Decor was nothing special but on a busy night with good food and cocktails I don't think that I'd really have noticed. My wife and I shared beef-filled empanadas to start and enjoyed them. I have wanted to try mofongo for quite some time, and finally had my chance with their shrimp version. The filling had lots of shrimp and the sauce was quite tasty; the plantain and garlic shell was also good but a little heavy for me, I couldn't eat it all (not for lack of trying). My wife's guava-braised short ribs were tender with good flavour, and the accompanying mash was good as well.
I have no idea how this place compares to other restaurants preparing local dishes, but everything we had was novel to us, the flavours were good, they were nicely presented and the servings were generous.
The wait staff was terrific and so was the food. It was our first time in PR. Would be happy to recommend this establishment to any and all.
This was a special meal for our family, and it was just down the block from Hotel Casablanca. We had ribs and fish, the nachos, and drinks. We were too full for desert, servings were generous and tasty. Our waiter was attentive and worked with our children, ages 9 & 12. The meal was delivered timely, but not rushed.
Great atmosphere, great service, and great mofongo! Cool tropical vibe and decor. We went there at about 6.30 pm and sat by the window and people watched Fortaleza street. Latin rhythms keep things lively and the rum cocktails are excellent. Try the classic mojito or a rum (Trinidadian) and coke or simple syrup with lemon. We (two) shared the mofongo triple set and a half portion of the arroz con pollo. We asked for the house hot sauce to pep things up a bit and they were excellent compliments. Cinnamon provided warm and cheerful service. Kid, group, or date friendly.
The Parrot Club is a tourist trap with mediocre food. Our table was wobbly, the food was bland and the atmosphere was unremarkable. Our server was sweet, but not sweet enough to make it a worthwhile experience. Total waste of money and time.
After a long day sightseeing, we really enjoyed the Parrot Club. Our server was fantastic - friendly and courteous but not overbearing - and the food was good. I had the shrimp mofongo and others at my table had the arroz con pollo, ribs, and kid-sized skirt steak. The atmosphere was vibrant but casual and we did not feel out of place in the casual clothes we had on for touring. The kids menu was much appreciated. Drinks were good, although not particularly strong.
