My wife and I went to El Gaitero following the really positive reviews left by previous travellers, and we were not disappointed. After a delicious (and generous portion!) of prawns in hot garlic oil, I had fillet steak, my wife had the salt cooked sea bass. Both were delicious- previous reviewers were spot on- the steak was cooked perfectly to... More

We have been visiting Gran Canaria for the past 20 years and never miss the opportunity to go to El Gaitero and meet up with Ramon and staff. The food is excellent, the sea bass cooked in salt is our personal favourite although the steak dishes come a very close second. We also enjoy the atmosphere created by the wonderful... More

Well, you can always trust on your son's frends! The best T-bone steak I'll ever had. As a first timers here we were glad to get hints on beginning of our vacation. The food, atmosphere and place was unigue. The staff was very nice and we feel as being at home as soon as we get up the stairs. We... More

Lovely restaurant, great atmosphere, excellent service and the food was delicious. I had the fillet steak slices with garlic sauce, chips (not fries) and veg. Cooked to perfection. My husband enjoyed calmari, potatoes and salad. Chocolate mousse for dessert and of course lovely red wine with the meal. Good value and Bill was less than expected compared to others this... More

We were fortunate to walk into El Gaitero on a very lively evening with almost every table occupied, the buzz of the place was superb, the front of house staff are so helpful and friendly it simply draws you in for a great experience. We chose to share a bruschetta as a light starter which was fresh, tasty and exactly... More

Visited here with my hubby on our first night back in Puerto Rico. We were tired after travelling and want a safe bet. Food here is solid and service very friendly. Would recommend a visit

I cannot go to Gran Canaria and not eat in this great restaurant. The food is first class lots of choice and very well presented. You are always met with a warm welcome and we have been coming here for several years and the standards have never slipped even on the evenings when the restaurant is full you still get... More

The staff are very welcoming and friendly, and the food is amazing. I can't find a single fault with this restaurant, the best one in the area.

Abdel met us with a warm delightful personality on arrival, although we were looking for a table outside there was none available but we were accommodated in the next best which was very satisfactory. The staff were so friendly and attentive without being in your face.The food... More
