Very nice.

One of the best restaurants we have visited on the Canary Islands. Perfectly prepared food. Had shrimps and steaks. The fried banana desert is prepared by the table and tastes very good. Well worth the trip to visit this restaurant.

After seeing how highly rated this restaurant was on trip advisor it was somewhere we just had to try-wish we hadn't bothered! The restaurant does have a balcony but it does overlook a carpark. The staff were very slow attending to us as the restaurant was very busy. I had the steak stroganoff but it didnt taste like any stroganoff... More

Make sure you go to this restaurant - for the many times I have been there, the food has always been varied and extremely good. The guys there are always attentive and friendly. Excellent view from the balcony. El Gaitero is located through the bridge next to the small harbour/Morasol Hotel. By the way also try The Portoro restaurant in... More

Visited this restaurant after viewing trip advisor, after the first meal could not wait to return. It is currently ranked 6th in Purerto Rico. The other five must be something special to beat this place. On the first visit shared starters of chorizo and fried peppers. Both so tasty and excellent portions, then had the mixed paella for two, the... More

Fantastic food, excellent service and brilliant waiters. We have had 4 years of consistently great meals and the waiters make you feel very at home. I would recommend the chateaubriand, steaks, paella and fish. The pata negra ham is to die for. We will be back. The owner Ramon even makes a special effort to come out and say hi... More

The food was great, just be wary of the soft drink prices and the keen waiter who takes your bottle of beer away before you have finished it. We visited twice
