Nice restaurant with good food and excellent service. We where a company of 15 tasting many different choices from the menu, including fish, steakes and something for the children. Especially the steaks was recommended from our company. The staff was only seconds away when you needed something, which we appreciated.

Found this restaurant via TripAdvisor last week whilst on holiday, great atmosphere, lovely food. Had the fish platter on our first visit and then the lamb on our second visit, both dishes were great, well served, good to look at taste wise - great to eat.

Found El Gaitero from TripAdvisor. After having few disappointing meals in the central of Puerto Rico. We went for it. The location itself seems familiar with the ones in the mall, restaurants next to each others with tacky ish lights. The restaurant itself was superb all around. The staff is kind, funny and warm. The food was outstanding, from starters... More

Beautiful food. Lovely staff - friendly and helpful but they left you to enjoy your meal without constantly trying to sell more drinks and asking if everything was ok every minute. Welcoming owner who made everyone feel special. Delightful decor. Very reasonable prices given the quality of food. Our new favourite restaurant.

Our 1st time here and we had paella. Was beautiful atmosphere and gorgeous food. Impressive service with a few tricks thrown in to keep everyone entertained. Host at door was so friendly and not pushy unlike some of the other restaurants! Blankets provided for outside seats as its quite windy here. Also got a honey rum at the end. Definitely... More

Went tonight for our first time and had the most delicious Chateaux Briand ! The steak cut like butter and the accompanying veg was cooked to perfection. Excellent service will definitely be revisiting this very well run restaurant

Went here with a total of nine family members. Everyone enjoyed the evening, the food, service, wine list and atmosphere were all up there. The staff seemed to enjoy their work and the chef joined us for a few words after which is always a nice touch.One of my best meals of the year. Shared a chateaubriand with one of... More

I have reviewed this restaurant before. It is the only place I eat in Puerto Rico Gran Canaria. Stayed in Marina Suites GC for Christmas. Went back to El Gaitero and found the food to be of the high quality we are used too- awlays the highest standards. Steaks are always cooked to taste. I also enjoyed the Fillet of... More
