Went to il Cotillo for a day out & after wandering the little streets for a couple of hours stumbled on El Toston just set back from the harbour. It was the 'Hot Cross Bun' sign that caught our eye but we ordered a burger each & fries to share. Absolutely delicious and a great portion size served with a... More

One of the reasons we visit Spain so often is the Spanish cuisine but there comes a time, usually a number of days into our holiday when we start to crave carbohydrates. That time came for us in El Cotillo and I was delighted to find El Toston served vegeburgers. I had the vegeburger, my partner had the meat burger... More

Went here quite a few times during our holiday. We liked the friendly atmosphere, the location and the food. Not a fine dining restaurant, has a more bar food feel to it and a limited menu ~The food was good and freshly cooked, tasty and reasonably priced. Nothing seemed to be a problem to any of the staff and we... More

Mel, Steve & Matt are always very welcoming and always greet you with a friendly smile. We have had some very memorable evenings in El Toston Bar and really looking forward to being back there in June 2015. Sunday lunches are very good and great value for money - well worth a visit

I first went here back in January 2006. Then, it was run by David and his wife. It was a good, well supported bar. On this visit, Steve another UK expat was at the helm. Nice guy, very friendly and very efficient. But something had been misplaced and El Toston had lost a bit of its sparkle. This bar is... More

This is a friendly bar run by a British family who have recently taken over from the previous owners. There is a fun live music night on Friday evenings, and while we were there, several top quality professional musicians on holiday in El Cotillo from Holland, Ireland and the UK joined in the music making. We also went there for... More

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.
