Superb bar and restaurant

A really welcoming place with friendly owners. The food is lovely and home made. Prices are very good too. The cheapest price for a large beer I found in El Cotillo, just €2.80. The sort of bar where you feel at home as soon as you walk in.

Great spot right on the beach with great service, good prices and marvellous food. Really friendly staff, unlike some of the other more upmarket options at El Cotillo.

Thanks Mel, Steve and Matt for a lovely lunch with delicious nut roast...veggie gravy and lots of great selection of veg and yorkshire pudding...a real treat! It's not always easy to find a good vegetarian option so I really appreciate that...a very friendly bar with lovely view and brilliant music nights...I will be back...Thanks Anna...

We travel to El Cotillo every January and always pay several visits to El Toston We were aware there were new owners and visited a Sunday afternoon to find them just closing up after 2pm. So we checked their opening hours board. We came back a Saturday night at 6.15pm (advertised as opening 5.30pm so a good margin of error)... More

Visited twice and was impressed at the friendliness of staff and clients. Regular live music - open Mic and singer song writers. Attracts wide range of nationalities. Didn't eat there so can't comment

We had beef burgers and french fries and loved it. The burgers were juicy and the fries were crispy. The right meal after surfing some big waves.

This Bar and restaurant is just around the corner from the Harbour and could be missed. We arrived late morning and had two of the breakfast options - both really good quality and cooked exactly as we requested. We were on a day visit from another part of the Island and could not stay for their evening meals which was... More
