Sometimes change is good. This is a good example. Good honest home-made food. Excellent hospitality. We have know this place for at least 15 years. It used to be a Spanish Tapas Bar.

We dropped on the El Toston bar by chance and so glad we did, whilst the owners were new they were able to offer plenty of tips about the resort, and whether you want Mediterranean food or a good old English breakfast you'll get value for money with a very friendly service........we'll be back!!

Eat here a couple of times in the evening. Good food, well cooked and at a decent price. Even re-opened the kitchen one evening when we arrived late. Great service.

It's a welcoming reception, with a flexible menu. Outstanding view if the harbour protected from the wind. Very prompt service and nicely presented. Very good value for money, ideal for families. Come hear every year and we will be back. Lou, Caz, jane

My mom and I went there after we had traveled to the town to se the Oceanararium but we found out that the place we were looking for is in a more southern town. The food here is really good. I had my best Chicken burger here :D

We are unsure as to how to respond to this review as it is the complete polar-opposite of every review and comment we have received so far in the 3 months since taking the bar over. So we're not. Perhaps if you had spoken to us at the time your 'visit' could have been different. More
