We went there after not being able to get into the coscomesei next door. Typical Spanish type restaurant very clean. Nice atmosphere and a very large menu. We both had sirloin steaks with extras and both thoroughly enjoyed the meal. Good price, no more or less that other local restaurants, but better than average for ambiance and service. Would recommend... More

Though the location isn't the most charming - this is a must-visit-restaurant. It is in the little shopping-centre just under the tunnel next to Hotel Marina Suits. 2 minutes by taxi from the centre om Puerto Rico. This little shopping centre has many exellent restaurants but we think this is the best! They serve everything you need for a fantastic... More

We've been here many times over the years, and it never disappoints. I had tender, tasty lamb chops followed by caramel flan, and Himself had grilled sole followed by vanilla ice cream. Despite being very busy, service was very good, and it was good to hear our waiter make sure I knew I was getting wee tiny lamb chops, and... More

Leg of lamb was well cooked and garnished with fresh vegetables. Would prefer no gravy poured over the lamb but left on a side dish. Chef checked... More

Looking at the normal menu I could see that it was pretty much the same as every other restaurant in Puerto Rico. I had the vegetable soup... More

We had heard good things about most of the restaurants in this area but friends had mentioned how nice El Gaitero was, so we gave it a go. El Gaitero is what i would call a standard but nice holiday restaurant. The menu is huge, as to make sure everyone eats. Price wise it is middle of the road, not... More
