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

It's the first time we have visited El Toston since the new owners took over and we were very pleasantly surprised. The food was great and the staff/owners were so welcoming, and attentive throughout. The bar has great views over the old harbour. There are a few bars in this little nook and El Toston really deserves not to be... More

On our return visit to El Toston bar this year we immediately saw the changes introduced by Mel and Matt. The decor is clean and crisp and the new menu has a good range, with Matt introducing trial additions also (we enjoyed acting as tasters for a couple of his creations).We received a great welcome and by the time our...

This Bar/Restaurant has had a complete makeover by the new owners. Brighter and more spacious, very clean, nicely decorated, new menus, new coffee machine and a well stocked bar. Steve, Mel and Matt all gave us a very warm welcome and nothing was too much trouble for them. They still hold the occasional music night which is very enjoyable. The... More
