Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Enjoyed a wonderful 3 course meal with wine at this lovely restaurant. Great staff, great choice and gorgeous food on every plate served. All at reasonable prices. Must visit.

We visited here on the recommendation of our Hotel Receptionist. What a delight - we had a second meal there too. Would highly recommend and would suggest booking is advisable, as on both visits, all tables were taken. The food is fabulous and the staff...are friendly and attentive.More

Been visiting this restaurant for 20 years, and clearly previously we have rated the quality. Tonight was extremely poor customer service with little interaction, and the food was woefully sub standard. The shoulder of lamb was cremated and dry, saute potatoes like crisps, the prawns...with salmon were overcooked. And no-one showed any interest whether we’d had a nice meal. We are regulars in Puerto Rico and will not ever be returning, way better value and quality elsewhere.More

Really lovely, lively atmosphere and good food at a reasonable price. Excellent service and wide variety of food. Not quite as good as Restaurante Don Quijote, but a good alternative for an evening meal.

This is a fantastic restaurant in Puerto Rico. Myself and my partner have visited Puerto Rico 3 times now and we always look forward to coming back to El Gaitero. The staff are so friendly and accommodating and the food is so fresh. We even...met the chef a couple of times who came out to greet us and genuinely cared to ask how the food was- it’s always fantastic!! Thank you El GaiteroMore

Went for a meal on our last night in Puerto Rico/Gran Canaria. Ramon, the owner, also owns the apartment we rented. He recommended that we book... good idea as it was full! Extensive menu. My husband loved his swordfish. I opted for steak, which is...unusual for me as I'm never sure it will be cooked enough for me - I asked for medium to well, and it came medium rare, so I asked for it to be cooked a little more. I had a nice dessert, and hubby had a Baileys coffee. Overall a very good meal.More

How do they do it Unbelievable to think when we attended there must have been 100 covers. Menu is extensive and place was really busy but no compromise on service or quality of the food. Just Perfect Highly recommend

Fantastic food and service. Prawns in hot garlic oil are the best I've ever tasted,large and gorgeous. Garlic bread and chocolate mousse were equally good. Our favourite restaurant. Ramon is a great chef. The rest of the team are fabulous too

After finishing a 2km swim of puerto rico beach , myself and the fam were ravenous and this wonderful restaurant with its unspoiled views of the mountains across the way, the sea to the front , very cool jazz playing in the background and the...warm and friendly service and atmosphere , did not disappoint . The food was first class , cooked to perfection without too much of a wait to fill our empty bellies . Whether its seafood, paella , pizza or a whole host of delicious bill of fare, you can be guaranteed, this restaurant will satiate the most hungry of souls. The cappuccinos and americano’s are an absolute taste and body explosion .More

El Gaitero is fast becoming one of our favourite restaurants. The food is superb and the staff are wonderful. I can't praise Ramon and his team enough. The Paella is simply the best we have ever tried. We have been fortunate to visit Puerto Rico...3 times in the last two years and each time we look forward to eating at our favourite place. We even booked for Christmas day last year and the specials on the menu where delicious. We are returning to Puerto Rico for Christmas 2024 and will definitely be getting in touch to book our table soon! Can't wait to see you all again! James, Michelle and CharlotteMore

Invited by friends to lunch at 14:00 we got a broad variety of galician specialties of the quality that we also met some years ago in Galicia, Spain. No tourist menus at this restaurant: authenticity is the landmark of El Gaitero as I see it....We enjoyed the Tropical draught beer for the superb meal.More

We hadn’t booked but they gave us a table on the verandah. Very nice. We ordered steak which is to be cooked to your liking (by you) at the table on red hot stones. Absolutely delicious. Washed down with a local Gran Canaria red wine....For dessert the tirimisu was creamy and indulgent. Overall a great experience and at €80 for two persons excellent value for money.More
