Had lunch with friend . The place was full but the service was ok. The frituras were to die for and the beer was very very cold. We had a great time.

Was looking for a place to enjoy some appetizers. Had cheese balls, corn fingers and fish nuggets. Flavor and value were excellent. Nice atmosphere with great service. Also got Mofongo with chicken. That was good but not excellent. Will go again only for appetizers.

We spent 5 days in the Cabo Rojo area and went to El Gatito three times because it was near our place, it was opened until late and the food was delicious and reasonably priced. What else could you possibly want?
