Just a short walk through the tunnel from where we were staying at the Morasol suites and El Gaitero was a gem on our doorstep. Definitely would recommend the sea salt seabass - fantastic and all expertly filleted at the table! Very impressive :-) The service was very good; attentive without being overbearing. A warm and friendly welcome and a... More

It's our second visit in a week......El Gaitero has a great atmosphere and excellent food!! The breaded swordfish and salt crusted sea bass is amazing and the chef prepared a delicious carbonara for my daughter even though it wasn't on the menu. You get hassled to eat at most of the restaurants in Puerto Rico which is irritating but this... More

I have been dining at this restaurant for a number of years and the quality of the food has never wavered. Having just spent a week at the nearby Morasol Suites, we visited El Gaitero on our first and last night of the holiday. I think it speaks volumes that the same staff are present year on year and offer... More

We visited with family and although we felt put off by the man calling out to us over the balcony persuading us to come up we has heard it was good. We has a lovely meal and couldn't complain about the huge portion sizes. Avoid the creme Catalana!! It was really bad

This restaurant is not in the busy commercial centre of Puerto Rico and this makes a huge difference to the dining experience. The location is not bustling with punters searching for bright lights and booze (we had that fun on a different night). It is amongst several other restaurants so there is still plenty of opportunity for people watching -... More

We ate here twice while we stayed in Puerto Rico. The food is lovely and there was plenty of choice for all of us. On the 2 occasions we were there we ate a variety of food ranging from fish, lasagne and steak - all of it really tasty and good quality. The staff are really friendly too and were... More

Just returned from a ten day trip to Puerto Rico! Found this gem of a restaurant through trip advisor and honestly can safely say it was the best restaurant we ate in by miles! We found it on night 7 and ate there for our last two nights in addition to this. We followed the advice of a few reviews... More

This was a very nice experience a friendly welcome, good service in a pleasant restaurant. The food was lovely well presented and really enjoyable. We were given a glass of cava when we arrived I think this was to celebrate the local team Las Palmas winning a place in La Liga sadly the lost in the last minute. Would certainly... More
