I have just spent a week in Puerto Rico on a family holiday. Whilst we were there, we went to El Gaitero three times during the week for a meal. The food was very good, and we enjoyed the meals at this restaurant. The waiters seem to work very hard, and they tried to make my brother and his family,... More

Traditional restaurant serving individually cooked meals. Ramon, Ernesto and Mimon made us feel really welcome and nothing was too much trouble for them even when we requested food that was not on the menu. We have been dining in this restaurant for more than 10 years and always come back for fine food whenever we visit Puerto Rico. Keep up... More

This restaurant is noted for its varied menu. Its meat menu is comprehensive, from simple steaks to chautabrian. Always cooked to your requirement. Situated a little inland it nevertheless has a simple atmosphere.

My sister and I visited here as we wanted to go out to dinner somewhere near our hotel. We were jostled and harassed by a neighbouring restaurant to eat there but instead were warmly greeted by staff at El Gaitero, so it made a refreshing change! The food was amazing. I had the Mexican steak with chips and vegetables and... More

Friendly staff. Steaks were good and big. Visited twice during our holidays. 2nd visit less sucessful than first. My husband had fish which was not great and would not recommend. Stick to grill items and you won't go wrong!!
