“Great food & Service”
Reviewed August 7, 2012

We made a point of going to this after reading the reviews on here,and ended up going back for more. The reviews are very accurate this is a great restaurant and well worth a visit if you are on holiday in Puerto Rico.

The menu is varied and would cover most tastes, the service is very friendly and the menu highlight was the bass baked in salt. This was superb and well worth a try, and don't forget to try the flambee deserts well worth seeing and they taste good as well.

Would definetly recommend.

“Something for everyome”
Reviewed July 18, 2012 via mobile

This restaurant is away from the main shopping area but it is well worth making the effort to visit it. For 12 years it Is the first restaurant we go to when in Puerto Rico. The choice on the menu means no-one ever gets let down. Everything is freshly cooked and can be cooked exactly how you want it. In the last two weeks we visited there 4 times always ready to try a new dish. There are always customers in there who have returned over many years and the staff and the owner never fail to remember them. Ramon the owner is about to open a new restaurant in the main shopping area and we hope this will be an opportunity for so many more people to enjoy good food at a reasonable price.

“Great Place”
Reviewed May 23, 2012

After the previous night's ok meal at the fine dining italian next door, we opted for El Gaitero next door twice during our weeks stay. Both meals were excellent - freshly cooked and nice ingredients. The service was really friendly and helpful. Delicious zambucca for afters!
