Really good all round. Proper food cooked to order, friendly staff. Excellent. It's our first night and we were there early but not surprised to see the place full on a Sunday eve by 8pm.

This looked like our kind of place so hopefully a good place to start our holiday, and we were not disappointed. Superb food and lovely, friendly staff who did not rush us but also didn't make us wait and were always smiling. We will be back very soon!

My wife and I came here for a romantic meal on our holiday to Puerto Rico. Most of the restaurants around here are tourist traps with mediocre food and service. El Gaitero was anything but. The gentleman at the door greeting everyone was fantastic and not the typical harass you to get you in instead he was friendly and welcoming.... More

Quite frantic, lots of rushing around by waiters, but friendly service. Food, no problems had worse and better! Guy at door asks you to leave a review on here when you leave, maybe that's why they appear so high on ratings?!

Service exemplary - friendly, efficient, professional. We had suggested dish, a pasta version of paella which did not disappoint, really delicious. Great atmosphere, lively and fun but not over the top.

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
